SIXTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON PRINCIPLES OF KNOWLEDGE
REPRESENTATION AND REASONING (KR'98)

Call for Participation

TRENTO, ITALY, JUNE 2-5, 1998

Explicit representations of knowledge manipulated by inference
algorithms provide an important foundation for much work in Artificial
Intelligence, including natural language dialogue systems, high level
vision, robotics and other knowledge based systems.
The KR conferences have established themselves as the leading forum
for timely, in-depth presentation of progress in the theory and
principles underlying the representation and computational
manipulation of knowledge. The traditional very high standard of
papers has been maintained at KR98; to acknowledge this, a best paper
award will be made, based primarily on paper content but also on the
presentation of the paper at the conference.
Expanding on that role, KR'98 will be a place for the exchange of
news, issues, and results among the entire community of researchers in
the principles and practices of knowledge representation and reasoning
systems.

We look forward to meeting you in Trento.

Tony Cohn, Len Schubert, and Stuart Shapiro
