		        REVISED CALL FOR PAPERS
		(submission deadline November 1, 2001)

	          Eighth International Conference on 
	 Principles of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning 
		             (KR2002)

April 22-25, 2002; Toulouse, France
Colocated with AIPS'02, NMR'2002, and DL-2002.
Sponsored by KR, Inc.
For up-to-date information on KR2002, see http://www.kr.org/kr/kr02/


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

We intend KR2002 to be a place 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 that present substantial new results
in the principles of KR&R systems while clearly showing the applicability
of those results to implemented or 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.

KR2002 will colocate with the Sixth International Conference on Artificial
Intelligence Planning and Scheduling Systems (AIPS2002), with one day in
common. We strongly encourage papers which would be of interest to both
communities.


Paper Format:

The Program Committee will review extended abstracts rather than complete
papers. Submissions must be at most twelve (12) pages, excluding the title
page and 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). Overlength submissions will be rejected without
review.

The deadline for submissions is November 1, 2001. Acknowledgement of
extended abstracts will be made by email no later than November 12,
2001. Acceptance or rejection information will be sent by December 21,
2001.

Authors of accepted papers will be expected to submit substantially longer
full papers for the conference proceedings. Final camera-ready copies of
the full papers will be due February 8, 2002.

Electronic Submission of Papers:

Authors must submit a title page and an electronic version of their paper
in pdf format only, using the process described below.  Authors completely
unable to submit their papers using this electronic submission process must
contact the program chairs no later than October 15, 2001 to arrange an
alternative submission process.  Electronic papers not in pdf format will
be rejected without review.  Papers cannot be submitted by email or FAX!

To submit your title page and paper use a World Wide Web (WWW) browser such
as Netscape to connect to http://cafe.newcastle.edu.au/krconfman/REG-paper/.  
Papers will be given a unique identification number, and the abstract
should be less than 300 words.

After the author has submitted their title page, an acknowledgement will be
displayed (and simultaneously emailed to the contact author).  At the
bottom of the acknowledgement page will be a link to "Upload Paper>" where
authors will be requested to divulge the name of the pdf file to be
uploaded. Note: When a title page is submitted directions on how to upload
the electronic paper in pdf format will also will be emailed to the contact
author.  Authors should note their tracking number, and only upload their
pdf file only once!

Topics:

  Representational Formalisms: Representations of Belief, Concepts,
       Intention, Time, Space, Action, Events; Nonmonotonic Logics; Description
       Logics; Knowledge and Concept Structures for the Semantic Web.
  Reasoning Techniques: Deduction, Induction, Abduction, Reasoning under
       Uncertainty, Reasoning in Heterogeneous Environments, Efficiency Measures,
       Complexity, Parallel and Distributed Implementations.
