This workshop will provide a forum to discuss
difficult problems in representing complex knowledge needed
to support deep reasoning,
question answering, explanation and justification systems.
The goals of the workshop are: (1) to create a comprehensive
knowledge representation (KR) challenge problems suitable
for a recurring competition, and (2) begin to develop KR
techniques to meet
those challenges. A set of difficult to represent sentences
from a biology textbook are included as an initial
set of KR challenges.
Cash prizes will be awarded for the most creative and
comprehensive solutions to the selected challenges.
The workshop will
be a highly interactive event with brief presentations of
problems and solutions followed by group discussion.
To submit a paper to the workshops, the participants should
select a subset of the challenge sentences and present
for representing them along with an approach to use that
representation in a problem solving task (question answering
or decision support).
Participants are free to add to the list of challenge
sentences, for example, from other chapters of the textbook,
or within the spirit of
their own projects and experience but should base their
suggestions on concrete examples, if possible, from real
