Call for Workshops Proposal in PDF

Background and Motivation

Workshops provide members of a community a forum to discuss common interests in a focused way. If you are working in an emerging area in Knowledge Acquisition, Knowledge Engineering and/or Knowledge Management, consider organizing a workshop. They are a chance to meet mind-alike researchers and discover what others are doing. A workshop offers a good opportunity for young researchers to present their work and to obtain feedback from an interested community. Successful workshops may result in edited books or special issues in international journals.

EKAW 2010 is looking for exciting proposals for half-day or full-day workshops to be held. Each workshop should generate discussions that give the EKAW community a new, organized way of thinking about the topic, or ideas that suggest promising directions for future research. A successful workshop can move the field forward and help in building community.

EKAW workshops provide an informal setting where the participants have the opportunity to discuss specific technical topics in an atmosphere that fosters the active exchange of ideas. Our aim for the workshop program is to promote and collect multidisciplinary research directions that contribute to knowledge management and engineering. Members from all research areas related to knowledge are invited to submit workshop proposals.

Workshop @ EKAW 2010

The 17th International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management is concerned with all aspects of eliciting, acquiring, modelling and managing knowledge, and its role in the construction of knowledge-intensive systems and services for the semantic web, knowledge management, e-business, natural language processing, intelligent information integration, etc.
