                  Ninth International Conference on the 
          Principles of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning
                               June 2 - 5, 2004
			  Whistler, Canada
               Submission Deadline: November 26, 2003
                Sponsored by KR Inc, IBM, SFU and UTS

Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KR&R) is a vibrant and exciting
field of 
human endeavor. KR&R techniques are key drivers of innovation in
computer science, 
and they have led to significant advances in practical applications in a
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
and the design of software agents, in particular, provide significant
for KR&R. 

We intend KR2004 to be a forum for the exchange of news, 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
systems that clearly contribute to the formal foundations or show the
of the results to implemented and 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.

KR2004 will collocate with the International Conference on Advanced
Planning and 
Scheduling (ICAPS-2004), with one day in common. We strongly encourage
which would be of interest to both communities.

Topics of interest include: 
    o Exception Tolerant and Inconsistency-Tolerant Reasoning, 
      Default Logics, Conditional Logics, Paraconsistent Logics,
    o Temporal Reasoning, Spatial reasoning, Causal Reasoning,
      Explanations, Extrapolation, Model-based diagnosis 
    o Reasoning about Actions, Situation Calculus, Action Languages,
Dynamic Logic 
    o Reasoning, Planning, or Decision Making under Uncertainty,
Probabilistic and 
      Possibilistic approaches, Belief Functions and Imprecise
    o Representations of Vagueness, Many-valued and Fuzzy Logics, 
    o Concept Formation, Similarity-based reasoning 
    o Information Change, Belief Revision, Update 
    o Information Fusion, Ontologies, Ontology Methodology
    o Qualitative reasoning and decision theory, Preference modeling, 
      Reasoning about preference, reasoning about physical systems 
    o Intelligent agents, negotiation, group decision making,
      interaction, game theory, common knowledge, cognitive robotics 
    o Algebraic foundations of knowledge representations, graphical
    o Modal logics and reasoning, belief, preference networks,
    o Knowledge representation languages, Description logics, Logic
      constraint logic programming, inductive logic programming,
complexity analysis 
    o Natural language processing, learning, discovering and acquiring
      belief networks, summarization, categorization 
    o Applications of KR&R, Knowledge-based Scheduling, WWW querying
      Information retrieval and web mining, Website selection and
      Electronic commerce and auctions 
    o Philosophical foundations and psychological evidence

Important Dates 
     Electronic Submission Deadline: November 26, 2003
     Notification of acceptance: January 14, 2004
     Camera-ready papers due: March 3, 2004
     KR2004 Conference: June 2 -5, 2004

Paper Submission
The Program Committee will review extended abstracts rather than
complete papers. 
Submissions must be at most twelve (12) pages, excluding the
bibliography, with 
a maximum of 38 lines per page and an average of 75 characters per line 
(corresponding to the LaTeX article-style, 12pt). If you have a separate
page containing at most the title, author information, keywords and
this will not be counted in the twelve page limit. Over length
submissions will 
be rejected without review. Authors of accepted papers will be expected
to submit 
substantially longer full papers for the conference proceedings. Authors
submit an online title page and an electronic version of their paper in
pdf format 
only. The electronic process will be made available on the KR2004
website closer 
to the submission date. Papers not in pdf format will be rejected
without review.
