Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KR&R) is a vibrant and  
exciting field
of human endeavour. KR&R techniques are key drivers of innovation in  
science, and they have led to significant advances in practical  
applications in a
wide range of areas from Artificial Intelligence to Software  

Explicit representations of knowledge manipulated by reasoning engines  
are an
integral and crucial component of intelligent systems. Semantic Web  
the design of software agents and Bio-Informatics technologies, in  
particular, provide
significant challenges for KR&R.

KR2008 will be a forum for the exchange of new ideas, issues, and  
results among
the community of researchers in the principles and practices of KR&R
