Management - EKAW

Lisbon, Portugal

Call for Workshop Proposals

Important Dates

Submission of Workshop Proposals:	April 2nd 2010
Acceptance Notification:		April 16th 2010
Camera-Ready Workshop Notes:	September 1st 2010
Conference:			October 11th-15th 2010

The 17th International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and  
Knowledge Management is concerned with
all aspects of eliciting, acquiring, modeling and managing knowledge,  
and its role in the construction of
knowledge-intensive systems and services for the semantic web,  
knowledge management, e-business,
natural language processing, intelligent information integration, etc.

We seek high quality proposals for workshops about topics related to  
the conference. Of particular interest are
proposals that address one of the following areas:

1) Knowledge Management
2) Knowledge Engineering and Acquisition
3) Knowledge In Use
4) Social and Cognitive Aspects of Knowledge Engineering
5) Special focus knowledge management and engineering by the masses
    * Human-machine synergy in knowledge acquisition
    * Incentives for knowledge creation and semantic annotation
    * Enhancing human productivity (e.g. knowledge workers)
    * Social and human factors in knowledge management
    * Collective and collaborative intelligence in knowledge management
    * Social tagging and folksonomies, social networks
    * Web2.0 approaches to KM (including semantic wikis, folksonomies,  
    * Games with a Purpose and KM
    * Linked Open Data / Web of Data

Proposals should be sent to the following three people:

Siegfried Handschuh	<>
H. Sofia Pinto		<>
Philipp Cimiano		<>

by April 2nd 2010 and contain a concise description of the proposed  
workshop covering the following aspects on
no more than 5 pages.

- Title and description of the workshop topic specifying the workshop  
goals and the technical issues that will be its focus.

EKAW workshops provide an informal setting where the participants have  
the opportunity to discuss specific
technical topics in an atmosphere that fosters the active exchange of  
ideas. Our aim for the workshop program
is to promote and collect multidisciplinary research directions that  
contribute to knowledge management and
engineering. Members from all research areas related to knowledge are  
invited to submit workshop proposals
