For all accepted proposals, KR will take care of all local arrangements.

Submission Requirements for Tutorial Proposals

KR tutorials are half-day or (exceptionally) full-day events that 
introduce general or special topics in KR and relevant neighboring 
areas. They can be first introductions to an established area or an 
emerging field, but also advanced courses on specialized methods or new 
approaches. The content should be adequately established and balanced, 
and not be limited to advertising an individual research work or 
product. A focus on specific tools and methodologies can still be useful 
to offer concrete examples and hands-on activities to participants.

Each accepted tutorial will entitle a discount on the KR registration 
fee for one tutorial presenter.

Each tutorial proposal should contain the following information:

  	* Title, presenters and proposed length of the tutorial (half-day is 
recommended, but an argument can be made for a full-day tutorial)
  	* A half-page introduction to the tutorial's subject and relevance to 
  	* A half-page on the target audience, prerequisite knowledge, and 
learning goals
  	* One page outline of the tutorial contents and intended structure
  	* A brief resume of each presenter including name, affiliation, email 
address, and evidence of scholarship in the area, mentioning relevant 
publications or professional experience.

The main duties of tutorial organizers are:

  	* Setup a web-page for the tutorial, which should at least include the 
information from the proposal, tutorial material and related references.
  	* Deliver the tutorial at KR 2023. A future call will provide details 
on the presentation options.

Submission Requirements for Workshop Proposals

Workshops provide a place to exchange ideas in emerging fields in KR 
research and application. They can take many forms, including 
mini-conferences (with peer-reviewed publications), competitions and 
shared tasks, working sessions (discussions, hackathons, etc.), line-ups 
of invited contributions, or a mix of these. Innovative formats are 
welcome, but organizers must provide means of estimating attendance and 
required length up-front (by number of submissions, invited speakers, or 
early registered participants).

Workshop proposals can use up to 4 pages, which should include the 
following information:

  	* Title, acronym of the workshop, proposed duration (half day, one 
day, ...),
  	* Workshop description: goals, format, and expected activities during 
the workshop,
  	* Audience: target audience, research groups in the area, planned or 
confirmed invited speakers, expected number of submissions and 
  	* Related events: history of the workshop (if applicable), 
relationship to recent similar events,
  	* Tentative list of PC members with their respective affiliations,
  	* A brief resume of each organizer including name, affiliation, 
contact details, and evidence of scholarship in the area, mentioning 
relevant publications or professional experience.
