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.

KR2008 will 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.
