  KR2008: Eleventh International Conference on Principles of Knowledge
  Representation and Reasoning

    Sydney, Australia, September 16-19, 2008

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

*Website: http://kr.org/KR2008/*

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 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 

Topics of interest include:

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