K-CAP 2001 Workshop October 21, 2001, Victoria B.C., Canada
Capturing knowledge by using markup techniques and by supporting semantic annotations is a major technique for creating metadata. It is beneficial in a wide range of content-oriented intelligent applications.
One important Application for instance is the Semantic Web. The research about the WWW currently strives to augment syntactic information already present in the Web by semantic metadata in order to achieve a Semantic Web that human and software agents can understand. Here, one of the most urgent challenges now is a knowledge-capturing problem, i.e. how one may turn existing syntactic resources into knowledge structures. A solution is to markup web document in order to create metadata on the web.
Another application is the indexing and searching of multimedia (and multilingual) data. It is difficult to completely process the content of multimedia data, even with technologies based on natural language processing, image processing, machine vision and speech recognition. Therefore, Semantic annotation is one of the promising methodologies to define semantic structures on the content.
The workshop intends to
bring together researchers and practitioners from such research areas
as the Semantic Web, knowledge acquisition, computational linguistics,
document processing, terminology, information science, and multimedia
content, among others, to discuss various aspects of knowledge markup
and semantic annotation in an interdisciplinary way.
Topics of Interest includes, but not limited to:
Practitioners and researchers interested
in participating should submit either a full paper (less than 6000
words) or a position paper (less than 1500 words). Submit before July
15, 2001 in electronic form in postscript or pdf to:
Although not required for the initial submission, we recommend to follow the format guidlines of K-Cap 2001, as this will be the required format for accepted papers.
