                          *** 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)

                   Website: http://kr.org/KR2010/

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, and  a joint
technical  session  is planned.  We  thus  encourage  papers that  are
relevant to both KR&R and Multi Agent Systems.

As  in KR  2008,  we will  run  a *Doctoral  Consortium* to  introduce
students    to    senior    researchers    with    similar    research
interests. Participating students will be  able to apply for grants to
partly  cover  their  travel  expenses. For  more  information,  visit
Doctoral Consortium Web page:

Submission information:

Papers must be submitted in AAAI style and in PDF only (the conference
proceedings will be published by the AAAI Press).  Submissions are not
anonymous. The  maximum length  of a submission  is 7  pages including
references, figures, and appendixes if any. Submissions of more than 7
pages will *not*  be reviewed! A paper must  be submitted on EASYCHAIR
via the following URL:


A paper  must be first registered  with a title,  abstract, and author
information by November  20, 2009, and the PDF file  of the paper must
be  uploaded  by  November  30,  2009.   The  final  paper  acceptance
notifications  will be  sent out  by January  17. There  is  no author
rebuttal  to  reviews.   However,  if  a  reviewer  considers  that  a
clarification about the paper  is needed, a request for clarifications
will be  sent to  the corresponding author  by email, and  the authors
will have at least 72 hours to respond to such requests.

Accepted papers will be allotted 11 pages in the proceedings.
