Welcome to the website of the 17th International Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning to be held in Rhodes, Greece on September 12-18, 2020.
We are continuously monitoring the COVID-19 situation from local authorities and the World Health Organization. KR 2020 is still 5 months away, and we are confident that COVID-19 emergency will pass over and the conference will be held in September, as planned. And, if necessary, alternative solutions, such as postponement, remote presentations, etc will be looked into and identified.
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.
