============================

*K-CAP 2007: Call for Papers*

*The Fourth International Conference on Knowledge Capture*

*28-31 October 2007, Whistler, BC*

*Website: http://www.csd.abdn.ac.uk/kcap07/*

Information in all forms is increasingly available, but using it 
effectively requires a range of technologies for acquiring and 
representing that information. These technologies constitute knowledge 
capture, and involve the extraction of useful knowledge from vast and 
diverse sources of information as well as its acquisition directly from 
users. 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, including knowledge engineering, machine learning, 
natural language processing, and the Semantic Web community. K-CAP 2007 
will provide a forum that brings together disparate research communities 
such as these, 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. K-CAP 2007 follows on the 
success of three previous conferences in 2005 (Banff, Canada), in 2003 
(Florida, USA), and 2001 (Victoria, Canada).

The Fourth International Conference on Knowledge Capture, K-CAP 2007 
will feature invited Talks, Technical Papers, Posters and Demos on a 
range of topics including:

 * Knowledge Engineering & modelling methodologies
 * Knowledge Engineering & the Semantic Web
 * Mixed-initiative planning & decision-support tools
 * Acquisition of problem-solving knowledge
 * Knowledge-based markup techniques
 * Knowledge extraction systems
 * Knowledge acquisition tools
 * Advice taking systems

*IMPORTANT DATES*
Workshops / Tutorials proposals due    7 February 2007
Technical papers due                   6 May 2007
Posters due                            1 July 2007
Workshops / Tutorials                  28 October 2007
Conference                             29-31 October 2007

*ABOUT THE VENUE*
The conference will be held at The Fairmont Chateau Whistler (K-CAP 2007 
has negotiated a Conference rate). Whistler is on the west side of the 
Rocky Mountains, and is easily reachable from Vancouver in less than 2 
hours by road (~75 miles). Van services operate from Vancouver airport. 
Whistler is to be the site of the 2010 Winter Olympics.
