International Workshop on Reactive Concepts in Knowledge Representation

Collocated with the
21st European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI 2014)
Prague, Czech Republic
August 18-22, 2014


In the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI), the subdomain of
Knowledge Representation (KR) has the aim to represent, integrate, and
exchange knowledge in order to provide reasoning about given and
potentially incomplete information. While most traditional KR formalisms
are concerned with knowledge bases that do not change over time or are
only subject to occasional revisions, the advent of smart devices and
recent advances in Internet technology - guided by the visions of a
Semantic Web and the Internet of Things - has increased the interest in
online applications that are able to directly react on a possibly
infinite stream of external information such as sensor or network data.
While current approaches for handling continuous stream data focus on
rapid data processing, they lack complex reasoning capacities. Recent
endeavours try to combine KR formalisms such as answer-set programming,
Semantic Web ontologies, and multi-context systems with stream
processing for providing knowledge-intense stream reasoning capabilities
of various application areas such as urban computing, ambient assisted
living, robotics, or dynamic scheduling. The goal of making
sophisticated KR techniques accessible in the reactive setting poses
many scientific challenges how to deal with emerging as well as expiring
data in a seamless way.

The International Workshop on Reactive Concepts in Knowledge
Representation (ReactKnow) aims to provide an international forum for
researchers in the AI and KR community to discuss and present advances
in theories, formalisms, and applications to get closer to the vision of
an artificial intelligence system which may react according to changing

We solicit the submission of papers broadly centered on issues and
research related to reactive concepts in KR. We welcome papers of either
theoretical or practical nature including reports on applications,
experiments, and work in progress.

* Paper submission deadline: May 25, 2014

- Online Commonsense Reasoning
- Reactive Cloud Computing
- Complexity Aspects
* Modelling and Systems:
- Software Engineering and Modelling for Reactive Formalisms
- Reactive Concepts in the Semantic Web
- Implementations
- Visualisations
* Applications:
- Applications in AI (Agents, Robotics, Dynamic Scheduling, ...)
- Ambient Intelligence
- Web 3.0
- Bioinformatics
- Industrial Applications

Paper format:
Submitted papers must be formatted according to the camera-ready style
for ECAI'14 ( using the
LaTeX-template and submitted electronically in PDF format through
easychair. Authorship is not anonymous. Papers must not exceed six (6)
pages excluding references and appendices. Note that reviewers are not
obliged to take the appendices into account.

The submission page is available at

Papers already published at other conferences and that can be of
interest for the workshop audience are welcomed to ReactKnow 2014,
provided that the initial publication is mentioned in a footnote on the
first page.

There are no formal proceedings for ReactKnow 2014. The accepted papers
will be published as a technical report and will be made available in
the CoRR Computing Research Repository.

The copyright of the papers lies with the authors, and as far as
ReactKnow 2014 is concerned, they are free to submit to other
conferences and workshops as well. Similarly, papers already published
can be submitted (but this has to be indicated in the submission).
