Submission Requirements for Tutorial Proposals
KR tutorials are half-day or (exceptionally) full-day events that
introduce general or special topics in KR and relevant neighboring
areas. They can be first introductions to an established area or an
emerging field, but also advanced courses on specialized methods or new
approaches. The content should be adequately established and balanced,
and not be limited to advertising an individual research work or
product. A focus on specific tools and methodologies can still be useful
to offer concrete examples and hands-on activities to participants.
Each accepted tutorial will entitle a discount on the KR registration
fee for one tutorial presenter.
Each tutorial proposal should contain the following information:
* Title, presenters and proposed length of the tutorial (half-day is
recommended, but an argument can be made for a full-day tutorial)
* A half-page introduction to the tutorial's subject and relevance to
* A half-page on the target audience, prerequisite knowledge, and
* One page outline of the tutorial contents and intended structure
* A brief resume of each presenter including name, affiliation, email
address, and evidence of scholarship in the area, mentioning relevant
publications or professional experience.
The main duties of tutorial organizers are:
* Setup a web-page for the tutorial, which should at least include the
information from the proposal, tutorial material and related references.
* Deliver the tutorial at KR 2023. A future call will provide details
on the presentation options.
Submission Requirements for Workshop Proposals

research and application. They can take many forms, including
mini-conferences (with peer-reviewed publications), competitions and
shared tasks, working sessions (discussions, hackathons, etc.), line-ups

welcome, but organizers must provide means of estimating attendance and
required length up-front (by number of submissions, invited speakers, or
early registered participants).
