EKAW 2008 - Second Call for Papers

16th International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge  
Management
"Knowledge Patterns"
29th September-3rd October 2008 - Acitrezza, Catania (Italy)
http://ekaw2008.inrialpes.fr

Knowledge is considered as the most important asset in our modern  
society. It has now penetrated all facets of computing practice: from  
the rise of knowledge management to the semantic web and from the  
blog culture to the knowledge economy. This penetration has made  
proper knowledge engineering a most required feature.

The 16th International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and  
Knowledge Management is concerned with all aspects of eliciting,  
acquiring, modelling and managing knowledge, and their role in the  
construction of knowledge-intensive systems and services for the  
semantic web, knowledge management, e-business, natural language  
processing, intelligent integration information, etc.

This year we will also pay special attention to the topic of  
"knowledge patterns" that can be considered as good practices or  
models that are applied or reused throughout the knowledge  
engineering lifecycle. Hence, beyond traditional topics of EKAW, we  
solicit papers that cover research on how to describe, classify,  
model, extract, and apply knowledge patterns in the design of  
ontologies, applications and products. We regard highly the  
description of experiences that involve the application and  
identification of knowledge patterns in social network analysis,  
natural language processing, multimedia analysis, pattern  
recognition, etc.

This call is for regular and student research papers. EKAW 2008 will  
also feature a tutorial program, posters and demos track, and an  
Industry Panel. The calls for these events are separate and can be  
found on the conference Web site.

Student Papers Tracks

Student track will select the four best papers for presentation,  
which will be awarded with a scholarship sponsored by the EU NeOn  
Project - http://www.neon-project.org

Best Research Paper Award

An award will be given to the best paper (or papers) submitted to the  
conference as judged by the Program Chairs in collaboration with the  
Program Committee.

Conference Topics of Interest and Area Keywords

EKAW 2008 welcomes the submission of original research and  
application papers dealing with theoretical, methodological,  
experimental, and application aspects. In particular, but not  
exclusively, we solicit papers about methodologies, models, and tools  
for the following topics:

ONTOLOGY DESIGN

Ontology design patterns
Collaborative ontology design
Ontology dynamics
Ontology modularization
Ontology evaluation and selection
Automatic ontology construction

NETWORKED ONTOLOGIES

Ontology matching
Web semantics
Semantic social networks
Semantics and Web2.0
Semantics in multimedia technologies
Contextual reasoning

KNOWLEDGE REENGINEERING

Ontology learning
Knowledge-based information extraction
Reengineering conceptual models and schemas
Reengineering folksonomies, lexicons, thesauri
Hybridating Ontology Engineering and NLP techniques

PROCESS KNOWLEDGE AND SEMANTIC SERVICES

Ontologies and agents
Semantic web services
Semantic portals and intrawebs
Semantic mashup
Semantic grid services
Knowledge Services for e-Science
Problem solving methods and semantic web services
Peer to Peer communication between semantic systems
Brokering systems

SOCIAL AND COGNITIVE ASPECTS OF KNOWLEDGE ENGINEERING

Human factors in knowledge management
Sustainability and cost analysis of knowledge engineering
Human-ontology interaction
Cognitive systems and knowledge engineering

Important Dates

Abstract Submission: April 14th, 2008
Full Paper Submission: April 21st, 2008
Notification: June 9th, 2008
Camera Ready: June 30th, 2008
Conference: Sept 29 - Oct 3, 2008

Submissions

Paper submission and reviewing for EKAW 2008 will be electronic via  
the conference submissions site available at http://www.easychair.org/ 
conferences/?conf=ekaw2008. Full papers should not exceed sixteen  
(16) pages for regular âs and six (6) pages for student papers in  
length and must be formatted according to the information for LNCS  
authors. The submission of a short abstract (using the online  
submission facility) will ease the reviewer assignment for research  
papers. Note that submission of posters and demos will only be  
possible from June 10th, 2008.

Papers must be submitted in PDF (Adobe's Portable Document Format)  
format and will *not* be accepted in any other format. Papers that  
exceed the maximum number of pages or do not follow the LNCS  
guidelines risk being rejected automatically without a review.  
Authors of accepted papers will be required to provide semantic  
annotations for the abstract of their submission -- details of this  
process will be provided on the conference web page at the time of  
acceptance. At least one author of each accepted paper must register  
for the conference.

Conference Proceedings

The proceedings of EKAW 2008 will be published by Springer Verlag in  
the LNCS/LNAI  Lecture Notes in Computer Science/Lecture Notes in  
Artificial Intelligence series (http://www.springer.com/lncs).
