*Much progress has been made in robotics through the introduction of
machine *

*learning, often leading to autonomous systems that are effective but
opaque with *

*inexplicable behaviours.  *

*Many applications, however, require robots to explicitly capture knowledge
and *

*reason with it in order to achieve high-level cognitive skills.  This
special *

*session is devoted to exploring the intersection of Knowledge
Representation *

*and Robotics.*

*Papers are solicited in all areas of this intersection.  In particular, we

*welcome papers that extend knowledge representation techniques to cope
with *

*the challenges posed by interacting with the physical world, such as:*

*- dealing with uncertain, incomplete or contradictory information;*

*- reasoning with time, space and perceptions;*

*- grounding representations in the physical world;*

*- combining discrete and continuous representations; *

*- reasoning with bounded computational resources;*

*- trustworthy and accountable robot behaviours; and*

*- social intelligence for robots in human-centric environments.*

*Robots are the archetypical integrated cognitive systems.  Thus, we also
welcome *

*papers that address the integration of knowledge representation into whole

*robotic systems, such as:*

*- integrating knowledge representation and machine learning;*

*- integrating symbolic and sub-symbolic approaches;*

*- integrating reasoning about actions and control; or*

*- cognitive robot architectures.*

*Finally, we welcome papers that show concrete examples where real*

*robotic systems benefit from knowledge representation, for instance in*

*- sensor interpretation and understanding;*

*- human-robot interaction;*

*- multi-robot planning and coordination; or*

*- dealing with errors and unexpected situations.*


*Information for Authors*


*The Special Session on KR & Robotics will allow contributions of both*

*regular papers (9 pages) and short papers (4 pages), excluding references,

*prepared and submitted according to Authors Guidelines for KR2021.*

*The special session emphasizes KR & Robotics, and welcomes contributions
that *

*extend the state of the art at the intersection of KR & Robotics.
Therefore, *

*KR-only or Robotics-only submissions will not be accepted for evaluation
in *

*this special session.*

*Submissions will be rigorously peer reviewed by PC members who are active
in *

*KR & Robotics.  Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of the overall *

*quality of their technical contribution, including criteria such as
originality, *

*soundness, relevance, significance, quality of presentation, and
understanding *

*of the state of the art.*
