KESE 2009 : 5th Workshop on Knowledge Engineering and Software Engineering at the 32nd German Conference on Artificial Intelligence
Call For Papers
5th Workshop on
Knowledge Engineering and Software Engineering KESE 2009
at the 32nd German Conference on Artificial Intelligence
Aims and Scope
Intelligent systems have been successfully developed in various domains based on techniques and tools from the fields of knowledge engineering and software engineering. Thus, declarative software engineering techniques have been established in many areas, such as knowledge systems, logic programming, constraint programming, and lately in the context of the Semantic Web and business rules.
The fifth workshop on Knowledge Engineering and Software Engineering (KESE 2009) wants to bring together researchers and practitioners from fields of software engineering and artificial intelligence, as well as the Semantic Web community. The intention is to give ample space for exchanging latest research results as well as knowledge about practical experience. The previous KESE Workshops were annually organized at KI conferences.
Topics of Interest
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
Knowledge and software engineering for the Semantic Web
Ontologies in practical knowledge and software engineering
Business Rules design and management
Knowledge representation, reasoning and management
Practical knowledge representation and discovery techniques in software engineering
Agent-oriented software engineering
Database and knowledge base management in AI systems
Evaluation and verification of intelligent systems
Practical tools for intelligent systems
Process models in AI applications
Declarative, logic-based approaches
Constraint programming approaches
We expect researchers and practitioners from the areas of knowledge and software engineering, and the Semantic Web. No limitation on the number of participants is planned.
Papers should be formatted according to the Springer LNCS guidelines. The length of each paper should not exceed 12 pages for regular papers and 6 pages for short papers (including figures and references), see: ftp.springer.de/pub/tex/latex/llncs/latex2e/llncs2e.zip
All papers must be written in English and submitted in PDF format with the A4 paper size explicitly set in LaTeX. Submissions will be made via EasyChair.
Paper submission deadline: June 8, 2009
Notification of paper acceptance: July 8, 2009
Camera ready copy submission: July 27, 2009
Call for Tool Presentations
This year we also strongly encourage the submission of tool presentation papers, i.e., system descriptions that clearly show the interaction between research and practice. Such papers could be shorter, and have to be explicitly identified as tool presentation.
The one-day workshop will be held with presentations of accepted papers. The submitted papers will be reviewed by at least two members of the program committee. A comfortable time slot for discussions will be given. The proceedings will be published as a technical report before the workshop, and as CEUR Workshop Proceedings (CEUR-WS.org) later on.
