Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KR&R) is a vibrant and exciting field of human endeavour. KR&R techniques are key drivers of innovation in computer science, and they have led to significant advances in practical applications in a wide range of areas from Artificial Intelligence to Software Engineering. Explicit representations of knowledge manipulated by reasoning engines are an integral and crucial component of intelligent systems. Semantic Web technologies, the design of software agents and Bio-Informatics technologies, in particular, provide significant challenges for KR&R.

The KR conference series is a leading forum for timely in-depth presentation of progress in the theory and principles underlying the representation and computational management of knowledge. We intend KR2008 to be a forum for the exchange of new ideas, issues, and results among the community of researchers in the principles and practices of KR&R systems.
