Welcome to the
K-CAP'2003 Workshop on
Knowledge Management and Semantic Web
Sanibel, Florida, October 25, 2003
Call for papers:
The next generation of the Web will be the semantic Web where semantic
contents of the Web resources will be interpretable not only by human
but also by machine. One popular approach for Semantic Web consists of
describing this semantic contents through metadata.
Knowledge Management (KM) is one of the key progress factors in
organizations. It involves explicit and persistent representation of
knowledge of (geographically) dispersed groups of people in the
organization, so as to improve the activities of the organization.
When the organization knowledge is distributed among several experts
and documents, the Internet or an Intranet inside the organization and
Web technologies can be a privileged means for acquisition, modelling,
management of this distributed knowledge.
One promising approach relies on the analogy between the resources
constituting a corporate memory and the resources accessible through the
A corporate memory can thus be materialised in a "corporate semantic
Web" made up of documents, ontologies and semantic annotations on these
documents by using the conceptual vocabulary of ontologies.
The objective of the workshop is to enable fruitful discussions
between "Semantic Web" and "Knowledge Management" communities, about
possible approaches of knowledge management based on such corporate
Long papers or position papers are welcome in any area concerning
knowledge management through corporate semantic Webs.
We specially expect papers discussing about the following issues:
- Role of enterprise models in corporate semantic Webs ?
- What kind of ontologies can be useful for such corporate semantic
- How to build such ontologies ?
- Techniques for (semi-)automatic building of such ontologies or
annotations from the corporate information sources (such as textual or
multimedia documents or databases)?
- Possible role of indexing techniques and of thesaurus in a
corporate semantic Web approach?
- Ontology representation languages for a corporate semantic Web?
- How to tackle multiple viewpoints in a corporate semantic Web?
- Interoperability between ontologies or integration of multiple
- Cooperative building, adaptation and evolution of a corporate
- Query languages for a corporate semantic Web, (Intelligent)
Information retrieval from a corporate semantic Web ?
- Agent-based approaches for building and management of a corporate
semantic Web and for information retrieval from a corporate semantic Web
- Users interfaces for building and using a corporate semantic Web?
- Features specific to corporate semantic Web w.r.t. open Semantic
- Concrete applications of corporate semantic Webs ?
- Techniques for optimising metadata storage and query processing
for a corporate semantic Web?
- Management of multilinguism in a corporate semantic Web.
