Welcome to the 15th International Conference on Principles of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning to be held in Cape Town, South Africa on April 25-29, 2016.

Co-located with DL 2016 and NMR 2016.

Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KR&R) is an exciting, well-established field of research. In KR&R a fundamental assumption is that an agent's knowledge is explicitly represented in a declatative form, suitable for processing by dedicated reasoning engines. This assumption, that much of what an agent deals with is knowledge-based, is common in many modern intelligent systems. Consequently, KRR has contributed to the theory and practice of various areas in AI, such as automated planning, natural language understanding, among others, as well as to fields beyond AI, including databases, verification, and software engineering. In recent years KRR has contributed to new and emerging fields including the semantic web, computational biology, and the development of software agents.

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. KR 2016 will be a forum for the exchange and discussion of new ideas, issues, and results on the principles and practice of KR&R.

SmartER Europe - Smart Energy Research at the crossroads of Engineering, Economics and Computer Science http://ifip-tc12.digital-ecology.org/events-page/event/35-smarter-europe-smart-energy-research-at-the-crossroads-of-engineering-economics-and-computer-science http://ifip-tc12.digital-ecology.org/events-page/event/35-smarter-europe-smart-energy-research-at-the-crossroads-of-engineering-economics-and-computer-science essen - Есен, Немачка

The transformation process of European energy supply faces a number of severe challenges. Beside technical and economic issues, societal and political demands as well as organizational and juridical aspects have to be addressed. Many proposals on specific topics exist, but comprehensive smart solutions for a sustainable future energy system are still missing. Especially, the complex and manifold interdependencies between involved technologies, multiple and cross-national varying regulations and convincing business cases require particular attention. And both long-term visions and concepts with perceptible benefits in the short- to medium-term are needed.

New solutions have to contribute to maintaining or even increasing the reliability and the security of energy supply in more decentralized systems. Additionally, newly designed energy markets should enable an efficient and transparent matching of supply and demand for energy and ancillary services in large-scale networks. This requires the analysis and handling of much more data and advanced algorithms for forecasting, operation and matching. The resulting overall system is thus going to be significantly more complex and interlinked. Decentralized and autonomous agents may enable here robust high-performance system operation. Yet the interactions between the market level and the technical system operation have to be considered carefully.

Although significant efforts and investments have already been put into the development of Smart Grids and Smart Markets, significant research questions need to be answered before Smart Grids will become reality. This, especially, also includes hybrid energy infrastructures where not only electricity is considered but also other grid-based energy carriers like natural gas and heat. Additional flexibility but also additional complexity is gained when these networks interact in order to meet the demands of a decentralized, diversified, secure and stable future energy supply.

Regardless of whether and how the energy supply will be designed and operated in the future, it is obvious that a key enabler for a successful transformation of the energy supply will be a purposefully designed and used ICT infrastructure. New solutions will consolidate and represent the combined knowledge and experience of different disciplines as engineering, business management and economics and computer science and, thus, contribute significantly to an efficient energy supply and to the success of involved companies. The IT backbone for such solutions are likely to be distributed, collaborative, autonomous and intelligent software packages for simulation, monitoring, control and optimization as well as appropriate data and business models, reporting systems and maybe also mobile solutions.


The SmartER-EUROPE Conference aims at providing an interdisciplinary forum for presenting and discussing recent advances and experiences in building and using new IT-based solutions for Smart Grids and Smart Markets. For this, the conference provides a forum for different scientific disciplines. Furthermore, it will enable an industrially relevant exchange of knowledge and experience. In particular, it includes (but is not limited to) the following areas and topics of interest:

Smart Grid, Smart Home and Network Automation

  • Decentralized control systems
  • Stability in Energy Grids
  • Distributed Optimization in Energy Networks
  • Multi-Agent Systems and Multi-Agent based simulations
  • Self-aware, self-configuring or self-healing energy systems
