               K-CAP 2005: CALL FOR PAPERS
     Third International Conference on Knowledge Capture

      October 2-5, 2005, The Banff Centre, Banff, Canada

           Website: http://www.kcap05.org/
           Submission deadline: May 6, 2005
             in cooperation with the AAAI

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 2005 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 2005 follows 
on the success of two previous conferences in 2003 (Florida, USA) 
and 2001 (Victoria, Canada).

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
  * Knowledge capture for the Semantic Web


Paper submission deadline:   May 6, 2005
Review results available:    June 17, 2005
Camera-ready version due:    July 15, 2005
Conference:                  October 2-5, 2005

Papers may be accepted as full papers or as posters. For detailed 
submission information, please consult the conference website at 


Banff is located in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, about 100 km 
west of Calgary. Banff is part of Banff National Park, which 
offers a multitude of outdoor activities. The Banff Centre was the 
traditional venue for the knowledge-acquisition workshops held 
between 1985-1996.
