Call to Host KR2018
16th Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning

*** Deadline for expression of interest:  September 30, 2015

The KR Steering Committee is seeking statements of interest from 
organizations or consortia interested in hosting the 16th International 
Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning, 
(KR2018). At this time, there are few constraints. We are accepting bids 
from all locations and while the conference typically takes places in May 
or June, we will also give full consideration to dates outside these two 

The process comprises two stages. During the first stage, KR Inc solicits 
statements of interest through an open call. They should be submitted 
using the letter-of-interest form. Once the first phase is complete, KR 
Inc will shortlist a number of applications, which will be then invited to 
submit a full proposal.

The important dates for applying to host the KR2018 Conference are:

September 30, 2015: Deadline for receiving statements of interest
October 31, 2015: Notifications to shortlisted bids are sent out
December 5, 2015: Formal applications received from shortlisted bids
February 1, 2016: Selection decision announced

Parties wishing to host KR2018 should contact Sheila McIlraith, President 
of KR Inc. (sheila at cs followed-by-dot toronto.edu).  You will need:

     The letter of interest template
     The application form
     The budget worksheet

We look foward to hearing form you.
