25-29, November 2012 - Sorrento - Naples, Italy

Important Dates
Submission deadline : September 30, 2012

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, Sermantic Web or Knowledge 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
• 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
• Semantic web inference methodologies

KARE 2012 invites submission of high quality and original papers on the topics of the major tracks described below. All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers for technical merit, originality, significance and relevance to the topics of the corresponding track. Papers must be up to 8 pages long and follow IEEE double columns publication format.
Paper submission will only be online via: SITIS 2012 submission site(http://www.sitis-conf.org/). The online system will be used to handle and process all papers and to prepare for the final proceedings.
Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings and published IEEE Computer Society and referenced in IEEE explore and major indexes. The proceedings will be available at the conference. Extended version of selected accepted papers will be considered for publication in major journals.
Selected papers after extension will be published in the following journals:
- Journal of Digital Information Management (JDIM) (ISSN 0972-7272)
- Journal of Information Assurance and Security (JIAS) (ISSN 1554-1010)
- International Journal of Computanional Intelligence Research (ISSN 0973-1873)
- International Journal for Infonomics (IJI) (ISSN 1742-4712)
- International Journal of Internet Technology and Secured Transactions (IJITST) (ISSN 1748-569X)
