Call For Papers

Call for workshops and tutorials
In conjunction with EKAW 2018
November 12 - 16 Nancy, France

The International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management (EKAW) is concerned with all aspects of eliciting, acquiring, modelling and managing knowledge, as well 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. This year, EKAW will pay special attention to topics related to knowledge and artificial intelligence.

Besides the regular conference tracks, EKAW will host a number of workshops and tutorials on topics related to the theme of the conference. We hope our workshops to provide an informal setting where participants have the opportunity to discuss specific technical topics in an atmosphere that fosters the active exchange of ideas; and tutorials to enable attendees to fully appreciate current issues, main schools of thought, and possible application areas.

Topics of Interest
In order to meet these goals, workshop/tutorial proposals should address topics that satisfy the following criteria:
the falls in the general scope of EKAW 2018;
there is a clear focus on a specific technology, problem or application;
there is a sufficiently large community interested in the topic.
