EKAW 2012 PhD Symposium

October 12th 2012, Galway (Ireland)


CALL for papers

The Symposium is open to all PhD students. Its aim is to provide
PhD students with an opportunity to have their work -- even in
its early stages -- presented to an international audience.
Moreover, their work will be reviewed by experienced researchers
one of which will play the role of a privileged advisor (a

PhD students at the beginning of their work should have at least
a defined problem statement and some ideas about the solution
that they want to discuss. More advanced students will have to
present their research plan, their evaluation protocol and their
preliminary results.

Important Dates:

 Paper Submission: April 25th, 2012

 Notification: June 12th, 2012

 Camera-Ready paper: July 6th , 2012

Paper outline

Submissions should be structured around the following items which
are the key methodological components required for a sound
research narrative:

 Problem: describe the core problem of the PhD and motivate its
relevance for the knowledge management, knowledge acquisition and
knowledge representation areas.

 State of the art: describe relevant related work and point out
areas that need to be improved;

 Proposed Approach: present the approach taken and motivate how
this is novel with respect to existing work;

 Methodology: sketch the methodology that is (or will be)

 Evaluation protocol: the approach to be taken for evaluating
the results of the work;

 Results: describe the current status of the work and any
results that have been reached so far;

 Conclusions and future work: conclude and specify the major
items of future work.

Submissions should be formatted according to Springer Verlag LNCS
guidelines. They should be between 5 and 7 pages long. Accepted
papers will be published online as a CEUR doctoral symposium
proceedings volume.

The symposium is intended for students doing their PhD in the
same area as the EKAW 2012 conference (knowledge management,
knowledge acquisition and knowledge representation) and in
particular the following topics:

    Knowledge Management Methodologies and tools for knowledge
    management Knowledge sharing and distribution, collaboration
    Best practices and lessons learned from case studies
    Provenance and trust in knowledge management Methods for
    accelerating take-up of knowledge management technologies
    Corporate memories for knowledge management Evolution,
    maintenance and preservation of knowledge Web 2.0
    technologies for knowledge management Incentives for human
    knowledge acquisition (e.g. games with a purpose)

    Knowledge Engineering and Acquisition Tools and methodologies
    for ontology engineering Ontology design patterns Ontology
    localization Ontology alignment Knowledge authoring and
    semantic annotation Knowledge acquisition from
    non-ontological resources (thesauri, folksonomies etc.)
    Semi-automatic knowledge acquisition, e.g., ontology learning
    Mining the Semantic Web and the Web of Data Ontology
    evaluation and metrics Uncertainty and vagueness in knowledge
    representation Dealing with dynamic, distributed and emerging

    Social and Cognitive Aspects of Knowledge Representation
    Knowledge representation inspired by cognitive science
    Synergies between humans and machines Knowledge emerging from
    user interaction and networks Knowledge ecosystems Expert
    finding, e.g., by social network analysis Trust and privacy
    in knowledge representation Collaborative and social
    approaches to knowledge management and acquisition
    Crowdsourcing in knowledge management
