Call for Papers

*Recently Published Research Track* at the
18th Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning 

November 3-12, 2021, Virtual (originally: Hanoi, Vietnam)
Important Dates
Submission deadline: June 27, 2021,
Notification: July 30, 2021
Conference: November 3-12, 2021

The 18th International Conference on Principles of Knowledge 
Representation and
Reasoning, KR 2021, invites submissions of abstracts of papers previously
published in journals and conference proceedings for the Recently Published
Research Track.

The track is designed to provide a forum to discuss recent research on 
related to KR that may not be immediately familiar or easily accessible 
to the
KR community.

The track seeks papers that fall into one or both of the following
two categories:

1) Papers that
-- bridge KR to other areas of AI, computer science, or to other 
disciplines for
which an interface with KR exists (this includes database theory, game 
social choice, logic and philosophy, etc.);
-- bridge KR to areas that make use of KR, such as multi-agent systems,
planning, natural language understanding, machine learning, explainable 
AI; or
-- go beyond the commonly-understood boundaries of KR.

2) Papers that are tightly related to KR and
-- have been published in journals but have not been presented at workshops
or conferences;
-- have been presented at conferences that are not typically attended by 
KR community; or
-- have been accepted at general high-profile AI conferences such as IJCAI,
ECAI, or AAAI, where the time allotted has not allowed for full 
discussion of
all key aspects of the paper.

Submitted papers need only be of interest to a subcommunity in KR (like DL,
argumentation, NMR, etc.). However, they need to be made friendly to a
KR audience.

Submission materials:

— A cover page (single page) listing the title, the authors, a complete
reference to the original paper, and a public or privately accessible 
url from
which the paper can be downloaded. A list of keywords is also expected.
Finally, the cover page must contain a statement that the work the 
is based on has not been already presented to a KR audience in a major 

— A one-page (preferred) and no more than two-page extended abstract of the
paper following the format for regular paper KR 2021 submissions. The 
should present the main contributions of the paper, discuss the 
relevance of
the paper to KR, and explain the significance of the results.

— A single pdf file with the materials should be submitted to the KR 
site at EasyChair. The authors should mark the submission as Recently 

Submissions must meet the following criteria:

a. Candidate papers must have been published in a journal or a conference
proceedings in 2019 or later.
b. Papers that are in press may be submitted as long as the final 
version is available.
c. Extensions of papers that have been previously presented at a KR 
are not eligible for this track.

Extended abstracts of the accepted papers will be linked from the 

Authors of accepted papers will present their work at the KR conference,
focussing on its significance and relevance to KR. Significant time will be
allocated for discussion of the interdisciplinary aspects of the work 
and its
potential impact on future research opportunities for KR.

Note that due to the ongoing global Covid-19 pandemic, KR 2021 will take 
as a fully online event.

For any questions regarding suitability of a submission or any other
aspect of the track, please email the special track program co-chairs:
