The 17th International Conference on Principles of Knowledge 
Representation and Reasoning (KR2020), to be held virtually on September 
12-18, 2020, is about to start, and welcomes all researchers interested 
in KR to participate!

Virtual participants are kindly requested to send their details (i.e., 
name, email, affiliation, country, events that will be attended, and 
reasons for participation), via email to KR2020.local at gmail.com.

Information about full program, registration, as well as the list of 
papers accepted at the main conference and the Doctoral Consortium, can 
be found at the conference webpage:

KR2020 Flyers:

Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KR) is a well-established and 
lively field of research.  In KR, a fundamental assumption is that an 
agent's knowledge is explicitly represented in a declarative form, 
suitable for processing by dedicated reasoning engines. This assumption, 
that much of what an agent deals with is knowledge-based, is common in 
many modern intelligent systems.  Consequently, KR has contributed to 
the theory and practice of various areas in AI, including automated 
planning and natural language understanding, and to fields beyond AI, 
including databases, verification, software engineering, and robotics.  
In recent years, KR has contributed also to new and emerging fields, 
including the semantic web, computational biology, cyber security, and 
the development of software agents.

The KR conference series is the leading forum for timely in-depth 
presentation of progress in the theory and principles underlying the 
representation and computational management of knowledge.
