The 15th International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge
Management is concerned with all aspects of eliciting, acquiring,
modelling, managing and exploiting knowledge, and the role of these
aspects in the construction of knowledge-intensive systems and services.

In particular, but not exclusively, we solicit papers about the following
topics:
A) ONTOLOGIES AND THE SEMANTIC WEB

    * Languages for ontologies and the semantic web
    * Methods and tools for collaborative building, evolution and
evaluation of ontologies
    * Knowledge modelling, knowledge management and knowledge evolution on
the semantic web
    * Ontology learning
    * Ontology reengineering, reuse, merging, alignment, integration and
certification
    * Ontologies for information sharing and intelligent information
integration
    * Ontology-based annotation
    * Multimedia technologies and the semantic web
    * Semantic Wikis, Semantic Bloggs


B) SEMANTICS FOR GRID AND WEB SERVICES

    * Semantic web services: Theory, Tools and Applications
    * Semantic grid services: Theory, infrastructure and Applications
    * Knowledge Services for e-Science
    * Problem solving methods and semantic web services
    * Peer to Peer communication between semantic systems
    * Brokering systems
    * Ontologies and agents
    * Semantic Portals


C) KNOWLEDGE AND SOCIAL NETWORKS

    * Social and human factors dimensions of knowledge management
    * Knowledge and social network analysis & modelling
    * Knowledge in trust networks
    * Social Tagging and Folksonomies


D) KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT

    * Methodologies and tools for Knowledge Management
    * Methodologies and tools for (possibly distributed) corporate memory
construction, evaluation and evolution
    * Knowledge modelling and enterprise modelling
    * Human language technologies and Knowledge Management


E) KNOWLEDGE ACQUISITION and MODELLING

    * Advanced Knowledge modelling languages and tools
    * Knowledge capture through machine learning and knowledge discovery
in data bases
    * Specific knowledge modelling issues for CBR systems, cooperative
KBS, training applications
    * Knowledge Acquisition from texts and WWW
    * Evaluation of methods, techniques and tools for Knowledge Acquisition
    * Knowledge engineering and software engineering
    * Uncertainty and vagueness aspects of knowledge modelling

Besides the scientific and industrial paper track, EKAW asks for poster
and demonstration contribution that will be presented in a special session
during the conference.

Requested Contributions

We are looking for contributions whose nature make them less suited for
submission to the official paper track. We would like to emphasize this
point and make clear that the poster and demo session is more than a
second chance for a rejected paper. In particular, we ask for
contributions of the following kind.

Late-breaking and Speculative Results:

Significant and original ideas with promising approaches to resolve open
problems in research that are in an early stage and have not been verified
and tested sufficiently to meet the requirements of a scientific
publication. Submissions in this area will be evaluated like a scientific
paper but limited to the aspects of originality, relevance and
significance.

Descriptions of System Demonstrations:

Descriptions (preferably accompanied by demonstration) of new systems that
use Semantic Web technology to solve important real world problems. We are
also looking for software infrastructure supporting the development of
systems that use Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management
technologies. Systems will be evaluated based on novelty and significance
of the application as well as the use of KE&KM technologies for solving
the problem. The main criteria for contributions on infrastructure is
successful use in existing applications as well as uniqueness of the
provided services.

Projects and Initiatives:

Descriptions of the objectives and results of ongoing projects and
initiatives. The aim is to provide an overview of ongoing work in the area
of the KE&KM. Contributions in this area will be evaluated based on the
importance and uniqueness of the objectives. Further criteria for project
descriptions are the significance of results. Descriptions of initiatives
will also be evaluated with respect to the expected impact on the
community.

Submissions

EKAW 2006 welcomes your submission to the poster and demo session.
Descriptions of the poster and/or demonstration is due June 22nd, 2006 and
should not exceed two (2) pages in the ACM SIG format
(http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html)

Please submit your contribution at:
http://ekaw2006.confmaster.net

We accept only submissions in the PDF format. Your submission will be
reviewed at least by two reviewers according to the criteria specified
above; so please label your submission as either a demo or poster.

Please note: Demo and poster submissions will be published in a separate
proceedings and will be handed out to participants of EKAW.
