Deep Knowledge Representation Challenge Workshop

Workshop website: https://sites.google.com/site/dkrckcap2011/

Co-located with K-CAP 2011
Date: June 26, 2011
Location: Banff, Alberta, Canada
Format: Full-Day Workshop & Challenge

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 set of 
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 approaches
 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 applications.
