[Apologies for multiple copies.] ---------------------------------------------------------- 2nd CALL FOR PAPERS: KARE 2008 ---------------------------------------------------------- First International Workshop on Knowledge Acquisition, Reuse and Evaluation (KARE2008) http://set.utbm.fr/index.php?pge=395&lang=fr In conjunction with the fourth IEEE international conference on Signal-Image Technology & Internet Based Systems (SITIS 2008) http://www.u-bourgogne.fr/SITIS/08/ Nov 30 - Dec 3rd 2008, Bali, Indonesia ++ Deadline for submission: Sept 15, 2008 ++ ++ Full papers and position papers invited ++ =================================================================== Description ------------ In recent years, organisations have used multiple methods and approaches to design their strategic and action plans. In this context, knowledge-based systems have received increased attention as being instrumental to strategy formulation. The synergy of these approaches with knowledge management initiatives is intuitive and their use in a common framework is discussed in this workshop to show the importance of methods and instruments to mapping and assessing the knowledge assets of an organisation. 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. Important dates ----------------- ++ Submission deadline : September, 20 ++ Notification : October, 20 ++ Final date for camera-ready copy : November 10 Topics of interest ------------------ * Tools and techniques for knowledge acquisition, knowledge update and knowledge validation * Web-based approaches for knowledge management * CSCW and cooperative approaches for knowledge management * Agent-based approaches for knowledge management * Evaluation of knowledge acquisition techniques * Knowledge acquisition, machine learning and knowledge discovery * Languages and frameworks for knowledge and knowledge modeling * Ontology-based approaches for knowledge management * Integration of knowledge acquisition techniques with decision support systems * Methods and techniques for sharing and reusing knowledge * Knowledge-based approaches for knowledge management * Corporate Semantic Webs for knowledge management * Peer-to-peer approaches for knowledge management ... Submissions ----------- You are invited to submit full length papers, not exceeding 6 pages in length, in two-column format including diagrams and references, following IEEE publication guidelines. Papers that do not follow these guidelines may be rejected without consideration of their merits. Papers must be submitted electronically to the contact point in PDF format. All workshops will be published by IEEE in a single total conference volume and fully indexed by IEEE Xplore. Selected papers after extension will be published in the following journals: - International Journal of Computer Aided Engineering (ICAE) - Journal of Digital Information Management (JDIM) (ISSN 0972-7272) - International Journal of Computanional Intelligence Research (ISSN 0973-1873) All papers will be reviewed by at least three Program Committee members on the basis of technical quality, originality, clarity, and relevance to the track topics listed below. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings. At least one author of each paper must attend the workshop to present the paper.
