                        UPDATED CALL FOR PAPERS: KR 2008
                                Eleventh International Conference on
                 Principles of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning

                         Sydney, Australia, September 16 - 19, 2008

                         Collocated with NMR-08, ICAPS-08, CP-08

                     The single registration fee includes attendance
                                to most events for all conferences


Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KR&R) is a vibrant and
exciting field of human endeavour. KR&R techniques are key drivers of
innovation in computer science, and they have led to significant
advances in practical applications in a wide range of areas from
Artificial Intelligence to Software Engineering.

Explicit representations of knowledge manipulated by reasoning
engines are an integral and crucial component of intelligent systems.
Semantic Web technologies, the design of software agents and
Bio-Informatics technologies, in particular, provide significant
challenges for KR&R.

We intend KR2008 to be a forum for the exchange of new ideas, issues,
and results among the community of researchers in the principles and
practices of KR&R systems. We encourage papers presenting substantial
new results in the principles of KR&R systems that clearly contribute
to the formal foundations or show the applicability of the results to
implemented or implementable systems. We also encourage ``reports
from the field" of building knowledge bases, applications,
experiments, developments, and tests. Such papers should be
explicitly identified as reports from the field by the authors, to
ensure appropriate reviewing, and should include a section on evaluation.

Papers must be submitted in AAAI style (pdf only)


Paper length is 7 pages maximum including title, author information
and references. Authors may add to the paper an optional, clearly
marked Appendix containing technical material (such as proofs,
evaluation results etc.) supporting claims made in the paper. The
Appendix must not exceed 2 additional pages in AAAI style. The
evaluation of the submission will be based on the quality of the
paper. The optional Appendix will be used in case reviewers are in
doubt about claimed results.

Submission will be through the Easychair conference management system


Conference proceedings will be published by AAAI Press. Final
versions of papers will be considerably longer than the submissions:
for each accepted paper 11 pages in AAAI style will be allocated in
the proceedings.

- Exception tolerant and inconsistency-tolerant reasoning,
Paraconsistent logics
- Nonmonotonic logics, Default logics, Conditional logics, Argumentation
