2 CfP: KCAP 03 Markup and Annotation Workshop

                                             Workshop on

                      Knowledge Markup and Semantic Annotation
                       October 25-26, 2003 at Sanibel, Florida, USA 

                                           Workshop at the 
                Second International Conference for Knowledge Capture
                      K-CAP'2003 is held in conjunction with the 
             2nd International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC2003) 

                                     --- Call for Papers ---

Capturing knowledge by using markup techniques and by supporting semantic
annotations is a major technique for creating metadata. It is beneficial
in a wide range of content-oriented intelligent applications.  One
important application, for instance, is the Semantic Web. Here, knowledge
markup is a major challenge, i.e. the problem is the providing of knowledge
structures for existing syntactic or multimedia resources.  The workshops
intend to bring together researchers and practitioners from such communities
as W3C, MPEG-7, AI, Natural Language technologies and KR to discuss various
aspects of knowledge markup and semantic annotation.

Submission Papers:
Practitioners and researchers interested in participating should submit 
either a full paper (less than 6000 words) or a position paper (less than 1500 
words) addressing relevant issues. Submit before July 21, 2003
in electronic form (pdf) to: handschuh@aifb.uni-karlsruhe.de.

Topics of Interest includes, but are not limited to:

* authoring/annotation tools
* web page annotation
* collaborative, shared annotation
* knowledge markup in the Semantic Web
* ontology-based markup
* using semantic annotations to define knowledge tools for supporting 
knowledge markup
* integrated software architecture based on semantic annotation
* multimedia annotation (e.g. by using MPEG-7)
* image/picture annotation
* linguistic aspects of semantic annotation
* capturing knowledge through Information Extraction and NLP
* text mining for creating knowledge markup
* evaluation of manual annotation
* Usage of Annotations, e.g. learning resource metadata

Although not required for the initial submission, we recommend to follow 
the format guidlines of K-Cap 2001
as this will be the required format for accepted papers.
