Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KR&R) is a well-established and vibrant field of research. 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.

The underlying approach of explicitly representing knowledge in a tangible form, suitable for processing by dedicated reasoning engines, is a fundamental component of many modern intelligent systems. Foundational and applied research in KR&R contributes to the principles of artificial intelligence. It also contributes to the foundations of longstanding fields including automated planning, databases, and software engineering. In recent years KR&R has also derived challenges from new and emerging fields including the semantic web, computational biology, and the development of software agents.

KR2012 will be a forum for the exchange and discussion of new ideas, issues, and results on the principles and practice of KR&R. We solicit papers presenting novel results on the principles of KR&R that clearly contribute to the formal foundations of relevant problems or show the applicability of results to implemented or implementable systems. We also encourage "reports from the field" of applications, experiments, developments, and tests. Such papers should be explicitly identified as reports from the field by the authors, to ensure appropriate reviewing, and must include a section on evaluation.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Belief revision and update, belief merging, information fusion
Computational aspects of knowledge representation
Concept formation, similarity-based reasoning
Contextual reasoning
Description logics
Decision making
Explanation finding, diagnosis, causal reasoning, abduction
Inconsistency- and exception tolerant reasoning, paraconsistent logics
KR and autonomous agents: intelligent agents, cognitive robotics, multi-agent systems
KR and game theory
KR and machine learning, inductive logic programming, knowledge discovery and acquisition
KR and natural language processing
KR and the Web, Semantic Web
Logic programming, answer set programming, constraint logic programming
Multi- and order-sorted representations and reasoning
Nonmonotonic logics, default logics, conditional logics
Philosophical foundations of KR
Ontology formalisms and models
Preference modeling and representation, reasoning about preferences, preference-based reasoning
Qualitative reasoning, reasoning about physical systems
Reasoning about actions and change, action languages, situation calculus, dynamic logic
Reasoning about knowledge and belief, epistemic and doxastic logics
Spatial reasoning and temporal reasoning
Uncertainty, representations of vagueness, many-valued and fuzzy logics
