KARE 2016
9th International Workshop on Knowledge Acquisition Reuse & Evaluation

Collocated with:
SITIS 2016 - The 12h International Conference on Signal Image Technology & Internet based Systems
November 27 - December 1, 2016 - Naples, Italy
Scope of the Workshop
The International Workshop on Knowledge Acquisition, Reuse and Evaluation aims to bring together researchers, scientists, engineers, and scholar students to exchange and share their experiences, new ideas, and research results about all aspects of Knowledge, Ontology, Sermantic Web or Knowledge Engineering. We will discuss the practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted.

This workshop will focus on the theoreticians and practitioners concerned with developing methods and systems that assist the knowledge management process and assessing the suitability of such methods. Thus, the workshop includes all aspects of acquiring, modeling and managing knowledge, and their role in the construction of knowledge-based systems. Knowledge acquisition still remains the bottleneck for building a knowledge based system. Reuse and sharing of knowledge bases are major issues and no satisfactory solutions have been agreed upon yet.
There is a wide range of research. Much of the work in this field has been knowledge acquisition. The advent of the age of digital information has brought the problem of knowledge reuse and knowledge evaluation. Our ability to analyze, evaluate and assist user in reusing knowledge present a great challenge of the next years. A new generation of computational techniques and tools is required to support the acquisition, the reuse and the evaluation of useful knowledge from the rapidly growing volume of information. All of these are to be discussed in this workshop.

Topics for the workshop include, but are not limited to:

Tools and techniques for knowledge acquisition, knowledge update and knowledge validation
knowledge portals
Web-based approaches for knowledge management
Agent-based approaches for knowledge management
Software agents for semantic web
Semantic web-based knowledge management
Tools, languages, and techniques for semantic annotation
Semantic searching
Semantic brokering
CSCW and cooperative approaches for knowledge management
Agent-based approaches for knowledge management
Evaluation of knowledge acquisition techniques`
Information and knowledge structures
Languages and frameworks for knowledge and knowledge modeling
Ontology creation, evolution, reconciliation, and mediation
Ontology-based approaches for knowledge management
Knowledge delivery methods
Knowledge life cycle
Knowledge and information extraction and discovery techniques
Corporate Semantic Webs for knowledge management
Peer-to-peer approaches for knowledge management
Knowledge extraction from images/pictures
Intelligent knowledge-based systems
Decision support and expert systems
Re-usability of software/knowledge/information
Semantic web inference methodologies

Important dates
Submission deadline: September 6, 2016
Acceptance/Reject notification: October 7, 2016
Camera-ready: October 20, 2016
Author Registration: October 20, 2016
Each submission should be at most 8 pages in total including bibliography and well-marked appendices, and must follow the IEEE double columns publication format available at:
Microsoft Word DOC
LaTex Formatting Macros

Paper submission will only be online via: Easy Chair.
Only pdf files will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. All submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression by at least two reviewers. The organizers will examine the reviews and make final paper selections.

All the papers accepted for the workshop will be included in the conference proceedings. The proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society and referenced in IEEE Xplore Digital Library and major indexes. They will be available at the conference.

At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the workshop. Workshop registration fee is determined by SITIS. A single registration for the workshop or the conference allows attending both events.
