Call For Papers

International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management
EKAW 2010

Lisbon, Portugal,
http://ekaw2010.inesc-id.pt

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.

The focus of the 17th edition of EKAW will be on "Knowledge Management
and Engineering by the Masses".

* Layered intelligence in knowledge management
* Provenance, reliability and trust in knowledge management
* Knowledge management for collaboration and decision support
* Methods for accelerating take-up of KM technologies
* Corporate memories for KM
* Case-based reasoning for KM

2) Knowledge Engineering and Acquisition

* Methodologies for knowledge engineering
* Knowledge acquisition, ontology learning
* Knowledge sharing
* Knowledge evolution

* Design patterns
* Techniques for knowledge acquisition based on machine learning, NLP etc.
* Uncertainty and vagueness in knowledge modeling
* Knowledge engineering and software engineering
* Ontology localization
* Ontology alignment
* Evolution of knowledge (including ontology evolution)
* Knowledge acquisition from non-ontological resources (thesauri,
folksonomies, lexica etc.)
* Knowledge acquisition and knowledge integration from heterogeneous
sources (multimedia and 3D data, databases, sensor data streams, social
interaction data)
* Knowledge authoring and knowledge markup languages
* Ontology evaluation
* Dynamic, distributed and process knowledge (including web services,
grid services, P2P systems, rules and business processes, problem
solving methods, procedural knowledge)
* Agent-based approaches to knowledge management
* Knowledge mashups

3) Knowledge In Use:
knowledge management and engineering for

* Social tagging and folksonomies, social networks
* Web2.0 approaches to KM (including semantic wikis, folksonomies, etc.)
* Games with a Purpose and KM
* Linked Open Data / Web of Data

As an important difference to earlier conferences, EKAW will accept
different types of papers. The papers will all have the same status and
follow the same formatting guidelines in the proceedings but will
receive special treatment during the reviewing phase. In particular,
each paper type will be subject to own evaluation criteria. The PC will
also make sure that there is a reasonable balance of the paper types
accepted. At submission time the paper has to be clearly identified as
belonging to one of the following categories.

A) Standard research papers

These are "standard" papers presenting a novel method, technique or
analysis with appropriate empirical or other types of evaluation as
proof-of concept. The main evaluation criteria here will be originality,
technical soundness and validation.

B) In-use papers

Here we are expecting papers describing applications of knowledge
management and engineering in real environments. Applications need to
address a sufficiently interesting and challenging problem on real and
large datasets, involving many users etc. The focus is less on the
originality of the approach and more on presenting real, large-scale and
complex systems that solve a significant problem. Technical details to
understand how the problem is solved are required. Evaluations should
involve real users of a system rather than representing a pure academic
exercise.
The papers will be evaluated according to the significance and practical
relevance of the described research as well as with respect to the
technical soundness of the described solution and accompanying evaluation.

C) Problem Analysis papers

We invite researchers to also publish problem analysis papers which do
not present any novel method, technique or approach to solving a
problem, but help to understand the problem itself. Understanding the
characteristics of a problem itself is an important task in research and
can benefit many people working on the same or at least similar
problems. We expect in-depth discussions and analysis of a certain
phenomenon or problem, with
clear definitions as well as qualitative and quantitative analyzes of
the main characteristics of the problem. We also expect a reasonable
review of the state-of-the-art stating in how far current solutions fall
short. Papers will mainly be evaluated with respect to how general and
technically sound their problem analysis is and how useful it will be
for other researchers working on the same problem. We expect that such
papers will guide future research by highlighting critical assumptions,
motivating the difficulty of a subproblem or explaining why current
techniques are not sufficient, all corroborated by quantitative and
qualitative arguments. Evaluation criteria will also include appropriate
categorization of the problem area and description of present solutions
and approaches; and appropriate description of the limitations of the
present solutions and approaches.

D) Validation papers

A fundamental characteristic of research is that it should be
reproducible. In some disciplines, reproduction of results by others is
a basic research activity. We would like to encourage researchers to
reproduce and validate methods, results and experiments etc. proposed by
others before in a new context or application, on new datasets, under
new assumptions etc. The goal is clearly to reach interesting and
significant new conclusions about the method/approach in question that
warrant a stand-alone publication. The reproduction of results should
thus lead to new knowledge about the method in question or reveal
inherent problems in the assumptions of the original research or
limitations of previous solutions. Papers will be evaluated with respect
to the soundness of the rationale for reproducing a certain approach as
well as with respect to the new knowledge that is generated by
reproducing the approach in question. A clear comparison between the
results obtained through the reproduction and the original results are
mandatory.
