KARE 2009 : Knowledge Acquisition, Reuse and Evaluation  

Ontology and Semantic Web Services for Knowledge Management
Second International Workshop on
Knowledge Acquisition, Reuse and Evaluation

In conjunction with the fourth IEEE international conference on  
Signal-Image Technology & Internet Based Systems

(SITIS 2009)

November 29th - December 4rd, 2009, Marrakech, Morocco

Important Dates
Submission deadline : July, 15th
Notification : August, 15th
Final date for camera-ready copy : September, 1st

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  
and Sermantic Web Services 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.

A non-exhaustive list of topics for the workshop includes the following:

? Tools and techniques for knowledge acquisition, knowledge update and  
knowledge validation
? Semantic web inference methodologies
? Semantic 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
