Systems and applications incorporating Knowledge Representation and
Reasoning (KR) have made tremendous progress over the last decades and
become more and more pervasive in scientific, industrial and everyday life.
Popular knowledge representation formalisms range from databases,
ontologies, classical, probabilistic and non-monotonic logics to natural
language, offering rich means to describe a variety of static as well as
dynamic phenomena. Automated reasoning systems harness machine learning,
combinatorial search and optimization methods, planning, proving, design
and diagnosis techniques to provide powerful tools for analyzing and
deriving conclusions from complex input data. Novel, general and
interdisciplinary approaches are thus vital contributions at the
intersection of science, industry and society, aiming to enhance the
capabilities and outreach of KR principles and technologies.

This year, for the third time, KR 2022 will host a track on "Applications
and Systems". This track aims at providing researchers and industrial
practitioners with a dedicated forum for presentation and discussion of new
ideas, research experience and emerging results on topics related to
applications of KR formalisms and automated reasoning systems. This track
provides the opportunity for fostering meaningful connections between
researchers from both practical and theoretical areas of AI and, at the
same time, offers participants the possibility to learn about progress made
on these topics, share their own views and elaborate about approaches that
could lead to effective cross-fertilisation among research in challenging
KR applications and new innovative systems for solving them.

The Applications and Systems Track at KR 2022 invites submissions of papers
on all aspects of the development, deployment, and evaluation of KR systems
to solve significant and challenging application problems, including:
- case studies, including suitable descriptions of the problem setting,
data and tools used, and “lessons learnt”,
- use cases, including task specifications, related tasks/approaches,
challenges, and a sketch of possible KR solution,
- benchmarks, including suitable descriptions of the dataset, reasoning
tasks, and ideally some “solution set” or gold standard,
- system descriptions, including descriptions of the algorithm,
- and empirical evaluation on a suitable dataset.

We welcome the above kinds of papers on a wide range of topics, including
classic KR tools/techniques as well as their usage for solving or
supporting tasks in a range of areas, for example:
- Computational Biology
- Computer Vision and Image/Video Recognition
- Creative Computing
- Cybersecurity and Blockchain
- Data Analytics
- Databases and Query Answering
- Diagnosis and Explanation
- Game Theory and Social Choice
- Intelligent Transportation and Logistics
- Intelligent User Interfaces
- Internet of Things
- Machine Learning
- Natural Language Processing
- Digital Forensics
- Robotics and Human Robot Collaboration
- Semantic Web and Knowledge Graphs
- Software Engineering
- System Design

We welcome submissions talking about interdisciplinary applications of KR,
for example in economics, education, life sciences, medicine, and

The Applications and Systems Track will allow contributions of both regular
papers (9 pages) and short papers (4 pages), excluding references, prepared
and submitted according to the authors guidelines in the submission page:

The track emphasizes applications of KR and development of KR systems, and
welcomes contributions showcasing the impact of KR research as well as
driving future research by presenting challenging data, use cases and
problems together with observations and insights gained.

Submissions will be rigorously peer reviewed by PC members, who are active
in applications of KR and/or development of KR systems. Submissions will be
evaluated on the basis of the overall quality of their technical
contribution, including criteria such as originality, soundness, relevance,
significance, quality of presentation, and understanding of the state of
the art.

In this track, the selection process of the highest quality papers will
further apply the following criteria:
- (for case studies) quality of the evaluation and significance of the
"lessons learnt”"
- (for use cases) importance and novelty of these use cases for KR
- (for system descriptions) quality of the empirical evaluation and its
- (for benchmarks) reusability, coverage, and complexity of the datasets
