International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge  
Management - EKAW

Lisbon, Portugal

Call for Posters and Demonstrations

The poster and demonstration session of EKAW 2010 is an opportunity  
for researchers and practitioners to present their innovative  
prototypes, ongoing projects, lessons learned and late-breaking  
results, to discuss with other conference participants and to  
establish new collaborations. We also encourage contributions that are  
likely to stipulate critical or controversial discussions about any of  
the areas of the EKAW conference series (knowledge management,  
knowledge engineering and acquisition, and knowledge in use), and with  
a special focus on knowledge management and engineering by the masses,  
which is this year’s special topic.

Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to the following  
areas (from those of the main conference):
1) Knowledge Management
     * Methodologies and tools for knowledge management
     * Aspects of collaboration, distribution and evolution of  
knowledge in KM
     * Advanced knowledge modeling languages and tools
     * Best practices / experiences in KM
     * Foundations of KM
     * Entity-oriented approaches to KM
     * Layered intelligence in knowledge management
     * Provenance, reliability and trust in knowledge management
     * Knowledge management for collaboration and decision support
     * Methods for accelerating take-up of KM technologies
     * Corporate memories for KM
     * Case-based reasoning for KM
     * Large-scale distributed reasoning

2) Knowledge Engineering and Acquisition
     * Methodologies for knowledge engineering
     * Knowledge acquisition, ontology learning
     * Knowledge sharing
     * Knowledge evolution
     * Collaborative knowledge engineering
     * Design patterns
     * Techniques for knowledge acquisition based on machine learning,  
NLP etc.
     * Uncertainty and vagueness in knowledge modeling
     * Knowledge engineering and software engineering
     * Ontology localization
     * Ontology alignment
     * Evolution of knowledge (including ontology evolution)
     * Knowledge acquisition from non-ontological resources (thesauri,  
folksonomies, lexica etc.)
     * Knowledge acquisition and knowledge integration from  
heterogeneous sources (multimedia and 3D data, databases, sensor data  
streams, social interaction data)
     * Knowledge authoring and knowledge markup languages
     * Ontology evaluation
     * Dynamic, distributed and process knowledge (including web  
services, grid services, P2P systems, rules and business processes,  
problem solving methods, procedural knowledge)
     * Agent-based approaches to knowledge management
     * Knowledge mashups

3) Knowledge In Use: knowledge management and engineering for
     * Retrieval and proactive delivery of pertinent knowledge
     * Multimedia applications
     * Life and E-sciences
     * E-Government and public administration
     * Health and medicine
     * Automotive and manufacturing industry
     * Semantic desktop applications
     * The legal domain
     * Cultural heritage applications
     * Digital broadcasting and film, game and 3D media content  
production and sharing
     * Digital libraries
     * Virtual worlds
     * Storytelling
     * Management in critical applications
     * Organizing user-contributed content
     * Transition across organizations

4) Social and Cognitive Aspects of Knowledge Engineering
     * Sustainability and cost analysis of knowledge engineering
     * Human-knowledge interaction
     * Cognitive systems and knowledge engineering
     * Knowledge ecosystems
     * Knowledge and social network analysis & modeling
     * Knowledge in trust networks
     * Personal sphere in knowledge engineering and management
     * Collaborative and social approaches to knowledge management and  

5) Special focus knowledge management and engineering by the masses
     * Human-machine synergy in knowledge acquisition
     * Incentives for knowledge creation and semantic annotation
     * Enhancing human productivity (e.g. knowledge workers)
     * Social and human factors in knowledge management
     * Collective and collaborative intelligence in knowledge management
     * Social tagging and folksonomies, social networks
     * Web2.0 approaches to KM (including semantic wikis,  
folksonomies, etc.)
     * Games with a Purpose and KM
     * Linked Open Data / Web of Data

Authors must submit a 2-page paper in PDF format (ACM style - http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates 
  -, double column), which describes the planned contents of the  
poster or demo to be presented. The paper should clearly indicate the  
type of presentation (i.e. poster, demo or both) and an informative  
abstract motivating its relevance with respect to the topics of  
interest of EKAW 2010. Each paper will be reviewed by members of the  
poster/demonstration program committee, who will judge the  
originality, topicality and clarity of the proposed contents.
