Recent Published Research Track

The program committee of the 17th International Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning, KR 2020, invites submissions of abstracts of papers previously published in journals and conference proceedings for the Recent Published Research Track.

The track is designed to provide a forum to discuss recent research on topics related to KR that may not be immediately familiar or easily accessible to the KR community. Thus the track seeks papers that fall into one or both of the following two categories:

1) Papers that

  • connect KR to other areas of AI and to other areas of computer science such as database theory, game theory, social choice, logic and philosophy;
  • connect KR to areas that make use of KR, such as multi-agent systems, planning, natural language understanding; or
  • go beyond the commonly-understood boundaries of KR.

2) Papers that are tightly related to KR and

  • have been published in journals but have not been presented at workshops or conferences;
  • have been presented at workshops or conferences that are not typically attended by the KR community; or
  • have been accepted at general high-profile AI conferences such as IJCAI, ECAI, or AAAI, where the time allotted has not allowed for full discussion of all key aspects of the paper.

Submission materials

  • A cover page (single page) listing the title, the authors, a complete reference to the original paper, and a public or privately accessible url from which the paper can be downloaded.
  • A one-page (preferred) and no more than two-page extended abstract of the paper following the format for regular paper KR 2020 submissions. The abstract should present the main contributions of the paper, discuss the relevance of the paper to KR, and explain the significance of the results.

A single pdf file with the materials should be submitted according to the instructions detailed in the submission page .

The authors should mark the submission as Recent Published Research.

Submissions must meet the following criteria:

  • Candidate papers must have been published in a journal or a conference proceedings in 2018 or later.
  • Papers that are in press may be submitted as long as the final camera-ready version is available.
  • Extensions of papers that have been previously presented at a KR conference are not eligible for this track.

Extended abstracts of the accepted papers will be linked from the conference web site.

Authors of accepted papers will present their work, focussing on its significance and relevance to KR. Significant time will be allocated for discussion of the interdisciplinary aspects of the work and its potential impact on the future research opportunities for KR.
