An important note about the JOURNAL NAME

The original journal's name was "Frontiers of Knowledge Representation," unfortunately, another journal uses the label "Frontiers of..." in its publication. Then, we maintained our journal's name in the first phase - until 2024, vol.1 - and from 2024, vol.2, the journal was renamed to Advances in Knowledge Representation.
The Editors.


The Advances of Knowledge Representation (AKR) is an international forum for peer-reviewed research in knowledge representation. AKR aims to publish original research dedicated to representing information and knowledge about the world in a form that a computer system can use to solve complex tasks, focusing on ontologies. AKR is hosted in the Journal Portal of the Federal University of Minas Gerais using OJS.
