Second International Conference on Knowledge Capture

Sponsored by ACM SigArt

Oct 23-25th, 2003
Sundial Resort, Sanibel Island, Florida, USA

##########################################

Information in all forms is increasingly available, but using it 
effectively requires a range of technologies for representing, 
manipulating, and reasoning with information. These technologies 
comprise knowledge capture, the extraction of useful knowledge from vast 
and diverse sources of information and raw data. Driven by the demands 
for knowledge-based applications, and the unprecedented availability of 
information on the Internet, the study of knowledge capture has a 
renewed importance.

Although there has been considerable work in the area of knowledge 
capture, activities have been distributed across several distinct 
research communities, principally knowledge engineering, machine 
learning, and natural-language processing. However, other fields study 
knowledge capture, too. For example, in planning and process management, 
mixed-initiative systems acquire knowledge about a user's goals by 
taking commands or accepting advice regarding a task. In addition, 
recent research with the Semantic Web includes work that tries to 
capture the knowledge associated with appropriately annotated web pages. 
All of these approaches are related in that they acquire information and 
organize it in knowledge structures that can be used for reasoning. They 
are complementary in that they use different techniques and approaches 
to capture different forms of knowledge.

K-CAP 2003 will provide a forum in which to bring together disparate 
research communities whose members are interested in efficiently 
capturing knowledge from a variety of sources and in creating 
representations that can be useful for reasoning. We solicit 
high-quality research papers for publication and presentation at our 
conference. Our aim is to promote multidisciplinary research that could 
lead to a new generation of tools and methodologies for knowledge capture.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

** Knowledge acquisition tools
** Advice taking systems
** Authoring tools
** Learning apprentices
** Knowledge engineering and modeling methodologies
** Knowledge extraction systems
** Knowledge management environments
** Mixed-initiative decision-support tools
** Knowledge-based markup techniques
** Acquisition of problem-solving knowledge

Submission deadline: May 2nd, 2003
Please email submissions (in PDF format only) to: kcap@cs.utexas.edu and 
gennari@u.washington.edu 
<mailto:kcap@cs.utexas.edu,gennari@u.washington.edu> with subject 
"K-CAP03 submission". (Sending to both addresses will provide insurance 
against catastrophic email or computer problems.)
We are aiming for a quick reviewing turn-around and therefore late 
submissions will not be considered for review.

Submission format: Please see the Word template at 
http://sern.ucalgary.ca/ksi/K-CAP/K-CAP2003/templates/KCAP-Examp03.doc. 
This template is based on the official ACM templates for conference 
proceedings. Latex style sheets are not yet availablewe will post these 
to the web pages when ready.
In concordance with requirements of the ACM digital library, please 
include categories and subject descriptors that best describe your 
submission. The hierarchy of descriptors can be found at 
http://www.acm.org/class/1998/overview.html (For example, some 
submissions may fall under the category "I.2.4: Knowledge Representation 
Formalisms and Methods".) You may include optional keywords. Note that 
reviewer assignments will be based on the contents of the abstract, as 
well as these descriptors and keywords.

Our apologies if you receive duplicate copies of this announcement. 
Please forward this announcement to friends and collegues who may be 
interested.
