6th International Conference on Knowledge Capture (KCAP2011)

-- Celebrating 25 years of Knowledge Acquisition Research --

June 25-29, 2011

Banff, Alberta, Canada



In today's knowledge-driven society, effective access to and use of
information is a key enabler for progress. Modern technologies not only are
themselves knowledge intensive, but also they produce enormous amounts of
new information that we must process and aggregate. These technologies
require knowledge capture, which involves the extraction of useful knowledge
from vast and diverse online sources as well as its acquisition directly
from human experts. Driven by the demands for knowledge-based applications
and the unprecedented availability of information on the Web, the study of
knowledge capture has a renewed importance.

Researchers who work in the area of knowledge capture traditionally
participate in several distinct research communities, including knowledge
engineering, machine learning, natural language processing, human–computer
interaction, artificial intelligence, and the Semantic Web. K-CAP 2011 will
provide a forum that brings together members of disparate research
communities who are interested in efficiently capturing knowledge from a
variety of sources and in creating representations that can be useful for
automated reasoning, analysis, and other forms of machine processing.

We solicit high-quality research papers for publication and presentation at
our conference. Our aim is to promote multidisciplinary research that could
lead to a new generation of tools and methodologies for knowledge capture.
K-CAP 2011 follows on the success of five previous conferences in 2009
<http://kcap2009.stanford.edu/>  (California, USA),
<http://www.k-cap.org/kcap07/kcap07/> 2007 (Whistler, Canada), in
<http://www.k-cap.org/kcap05/> 2005 (Banff, Canada), in
CAP2003/index.html> 2003 (Florida, USA), and
CAP2001/index.html> 2001 (Victoria, Canada), and of the series of Knowledge
Acquisition Workshops (KAW), the first of which took place in the same
location (Banff, Canada) in 1986.  K-CAP 2011 is particularly important in
the history of our discipline, as it coincides with the 25th anniversary of
the first Knowledge Acquisition Workshop at the Banff Centre.

The Sixth International Conference on Knowledge Capture, K-CAP 2011 will
feature Invited Talks, Technical Papers, Workshops, Posters and Demos on a
range of topics including: 

*	Knowledge acquisition tools 
*	Knowledge authoring tools 
*	Knowledge extraction systems 
*	Knowledge management environments 
*	Knowledge capture for the Semantic Web and the Web of Linked Data
*	Collaborative and social approaches to knowledge management and
*	Learning apprentices 
*	Mixed-initiative planning and decision-support tools 
*	Acquisition of problem-solving knowledge 
*	Knowledge-based markup techniques 
*	Advice taking systems 
*	Knowledge engineering and modelling methodologies 

There will be also a special session in the conference on “25 years of
Knowledge Acquisition Research”, in which presented papers and invited talks
will review advances in the past 25 years in all the aforementioned areas.
