2nd Deep Knowledge Representation Challenge (DKRC2012)

Co-located with QR 2012

Date: July 17, 2012
Location: Playa Vista, California, USA
Format: Half-Day Workshop

Call for participation

The Deep Knowledge Representation Challenge (DKRC) Workshop provides a forum to discuss difficult problems in representing complex knowledge needed to support deep reasoning, argumentation and dialogue systems. The goals of the challenge workshops are: (1) to create a comprehensive set of knowledge representation challenge problems suitable for recurring competition, and (2) to develop knowledge representation and reasoning techniques to meet those challenges. The first workshop (DKRC2011) of this kind was co-located with K-Cap in 2011. The second workshop will be co-located with International workshop on Qualitative Reasoning (QR), held July 16-18, 2012 in Playa Vista, CA, hosted by ICT.

To submit a contribution to the challenge workshop, the participants should develop a representation for addressing the challenge problems (or parts of it) and use that representation in a problem-solving task (typically, handling dialogue relevant aspects such question answering, explanation, justification, etc.). The workshop will be a highly interactive event with brief presentations of problems and solutions followed by group discussion. Participants are free to augment the challenge, for example, by including additional mechanisms from other domains, or within the spirit of their own projects and experience. However, the focus challenge as described in the call should be addressed as the primary objective.

Solutions are at least discussed in a paper, but preferably also implemented (e.g. as a demo) using existing tools or newly created code (see elsewhere in the call for details). Cash prizes will be awarded by Allen Institute of Artificial Intelligence for the most creative and comprehensive solutions to the challenge!
