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: April 28th, 2003
Submission format: 8 pages, 10-point font, double column.
Complete formatting information, including templates, to be available 
from the web page.
