(New) 31 July - 12 August 2022, 19th International Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation & Reasoning (KR 2022), Haifa (Israel) & Virtual

Date: 31 July - 12 August 2022
Location: Haifa (Israel) & Virtual
Deadline: Wednesday 2 February 2022

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. The KR2022 program will also feature workshops and tutorials, solicited by means of an open call, as well as a doctoral consortium. In addition to the main conference track, KR2022 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. KR 2022 will be held as part of the Federated Logic Conference (FLoC 2022) in Haifa, Israel, from July 31 to August 12, 2022. The KR-affiliated FLoC tutorials and workshops will take place directly before KR, on July 31-August 1. All events that are part of FLoC are currently planned to take place physically, but people can participate remotely in cases where travel is impossible.

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. We also encourage "reports from the field" of applications, experiments, developments, and tests.

All submissions must be written in English and formatted using the style files provided on the KR'22 website. Papers must be submitted in PDF format, through the EasyChair conference system. For the main conference track and additional tracks/sessions (except for the Recently Published Research track), we invite Full papers of up to 9 pages (including abstract, figures, and appendices (if any), but excluding references and acknowledgements) and Short papers of up to 4 pages (excluding references and acknowledgements). Both full and short papers must describe original, previously unpublished research, and must not simultaneously be submitted for publication elsewhere. These restrictions do not apply to previously accepted workshop papers with a limited audience and/or without archival proceedings, and to papers uploaded at public repositories (e.g., arXiv).

The Recently Published Research track, workshops, tutorials, special sessions and the doctoral consortium have different submission guidelines and different submission and notification dates, which are or will be listed on the conference website.
