1 Workshop at a glance

New challenges, problems, and issues have emerged in the context of
knowledge representation in Artificial Intelligence (AI), involving
the logical manipulation of increasingly large information sets (see
for example Semantic Web, BioInformatics and so on). Improvements in
storage capacity and performance of computing infrastructure have also
affected the nature of KRR systems, shifting their focus towards
representational power and execution performance. Therefore, KRR
research is faced with a challenge of developing knowledge
representation structures optimized for large scale reasoning. This
new generation of KRR systems includes graph-based knowledge
representation formalisms such as Bayesian Networks (BNs), Semantic
Networks (SNs), Conceptual Graphs (CGs), Formal Concept Analysis
(FCA), CP-nets, GAI-nets, all of which have been successfully used in
a number of applications. The goal of this workshop is to bring
together the researchers involved in the development and application
of graph-based knowledge representation formalisms and reasoning

2 Relevant topics
The workshop welcomes contributions that address graph-based
representation and reasoning paradigms from a theoretical, algorithmic
or application viewpoint. Such formalisms include but are not limited

 * Bayesian Networks,
 * Graphical Models for Preferences (CP-Nets, GAI-Nets),
 * Conceptual Graphs,
 * Graph-based KR Languages for the Semantic Web,
 * Semantic Networks,
 * Formal Concept Analysis,
 * Existential Graphs,
 * Euler Diagrams, etc.

Examples of application domains for using graph based knowledge
representation and reasoning include, but are not limited to: Semantic
Web, Bioinformatics, Multi Agent Systems, Recommender Systems etc..
