						16th International Conference on
				Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management
							 "Knowledge Patterns"

						   	Acitrezza, Catania, Italy
					      29th September-3rd October 2008

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 of information, etc.

This year we pay special attention to the topic of "knowledge  
patterns" as good practices or models that are applied or reused  
throughout the knowledge engineering lifecycle.

EKAW 2008 features two tutorials, six regular sessions, a poster  
session, and an Industry Panel.
