Call to Host the 18th Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning in 2021

The KR Steering Committee is seeking statements of interest from individuals or consortia interested in hosting the 18th International Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning, (KR2021). We are accepting bids from all locations; however, for 2021 we particularly encourage bids from outside Europe and North America. The conference will take place between September and November 2021.

The process comprises two stages. During the first stage, KR Inc solicits statements of interest through an open call. They should be submitted using the letter-of-interest form. Once the first phase is complete, KR Inc will shortlist a number of applications, which will be then invited to submit a full proposal.

The important dates for applying to host the KR2021 Conference are:

April 30, 2019: Deadline for receiving statements of interest
May 31, 2019: Notifications to shortlisted bids are sent out
July 15, 2019: Formal applications received from the shortlisted bids
August 31, 2019: Selection decision announced
