6 - 12 November 2021, 18th Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KR2021), Hanoi, Vietnam

Date: 6 - 12 November 2021
Location: Hanoi, Vietnam
Deadline: Wednesday 24 March 2021

Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KR) is a well-established and lively field of research. In KR a fundamental assumption is that an agent's knowledge is explicitly represented in a declarative form, suitable for processing by dedicated reasoning engines. This assumption, that much of what an agent deals with is knowledge-based, is common in many modern intelligent systems. Consequently, KR has contributed to the theory and practice of various areas in AI, including automated planning and natural language understanding, and to fields beyond AI, including databases, verification, software engineering, and robotics. In recent years, KR has contributed also to new and emerging fields, including the semantic web, computational biology, cyber security, and the development of software agents.

The KR conference series is the leading forum for timely in-depth presentation of progress in the theory and principles underlying the representation and computational management of knowledge.

We solicit papers presenting novel results on the principles of KR that clearly contribute to the formal foundations of relevant problems or show the applicability of results to implemented or implementable systems. We also welcome papers from other areas that show clear use of, or contributions to, the principles or practice of KR.

In addition to the main conference track, KR2021 will host the following tracks and sessions:
- Applications and Systems Track
 - Recently Published Research Track
 - Special Session on KR and Machine Learning
 - Special Session on KR and Robotics

The KR2021 program will also feature workshops and tutorials, solicited by means of an open call, as well as a doctoral consortium.
The Recently Published Research track, workshops, tutorials, and the doctoral consortium will have different submission and notification dates, which will be announced separately.
