                   CALL FOR PAPERS (PRELIMINARY)

                          *** KR 2010 ***

    Twelfth International Conference on  Principles of Knowledge
                    Representation and Reasoning

                  Toronto, Canada, May 9-13, 2010.

Collocated with  AAMAS-10, NMR-10, ICAPS-10, FOIS-10  (all in Toronto)
             and DL 2010 (in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada)

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 KR2010 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 evaluation. For the  first time, KR will be collocated with
AAMAS. We  thus encourage  papers that are  relevant to both  KR&R and
Multi Agent Systems.

Topics of interest include:
* Exception tolerant and
inconsistency-tolerant reasoning, Paraconsistent logics
* Nonmonotonic logics, Default logics, Conditional logics,
* Temporal reasoning and Spatial reasoning
