KARE08: First International Workshop on Knowledge Acquisition, Reuse and Evaluation

In conjunction with the fourth IEEE international conference on Signal-Image Technology & Internet Based Systems (SITIS 2008)

2 December, 2008, Bali, Indonesia

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.


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

  • 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
