Call For Contributions - EKAW 2004 Workshop on the Application of Language and Semantic Technologies to support Knowledge Management Processes

http://kmi.open.ac.uk/people/victoria/ekaw/
 
  
Companies worldwide have access to repositories of millions of documents online via intranets and data-warehouses. These documents are an invaluable resource of information on customers, competitors and technical expertise within the company. However because the knowledge is stored in unstructured text format it is hard to capture, share and reuse. The combination of Human Language and Semantic Web technologies presents an opportunity to improve the capabilities of the next generation of knowledge management tools. This workshop aims to promote discussion of issues and priorities for the utilisation of language technologies in knowledge management and for the integration of language and semantic technologies. 

We are looking for innovative approaches, theoretical frameworks, and practical applications. Position papers and demonstrations are invited on the following list of topics, but work on related topics is also welcome: 

Multi-lingual systems, 
Information Extraction, 
Ontology Learning, 
Document Indexing, Retrieval and Browsing, 
Approaches to Semantic Annotation, 
Smart Browsing, 
Semantic Search, 
Question Answering, 
Enterprise Content Management. 

The Workshop is taking place as part of the 14th International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management (EKAW 2004) 5-8th October 2004 - Whittlebury Hall, Northamptonshire, UK http://kmi.open.ac.uk/events/ekaw/
