Proceedings of the 6th International Conference on Knowledge Capture (K-CAP 2011)

Research Areas

It is our pleasure to welcome you to the Sixth International Conference on Knowledge Capture (K-CAP2011). The K-CAP conference series provides a forum that brings together members of several research communities who are interested in efficiently capturing knowledge from a variety of sources and in creating representations that can be useful for automated reasoning, analysis, and other forms of machine processing. Therefore, research interests in knowledge capture are at the intersection of areas such as knowledge engineering, machine learning, natural-language processing, human-computer interaction, Artificial Intelligence, and the Semantic Web. K-CAP 2011 follows on the success of five previous conferences in 2009 (Los Angeles, California, USA), 2007 (Whistler, British Columbia, Canada), in 2005 (Banff, Alberta, Canada), in 2003 (Sanibel Island, Florida, USA), and 2001 (Victoria, British Columbia, Canada), and of the series of Knowledge Acquisition Workshops (KAW), the first of which took place in the same location (Banff, Alberta, Canada) in 1986. K-CAP 2011 is particularly important in the history of this discipline, as it coincides with the 25th anniversary of the first Knowledge Acquisition Workshop held in Banff. The call for papers attracted 80 submissions from Europe, America, Asia, and Oceania. The program committee accepted 19 full papers that cover a variety of topics, including ontology engineering, ontology learning, evaluation and quality assessment of ontologies and knowledge bases, information extraction for knowledge capture, and knowledge capture from online textual and multimedia resources. In addition, this volume includes descriptions of 19 posters and demos presented at the conference. To celebrate this 25th anniversary, the K-CAP 2011 program includes six invited talks, many of which reflect on the evolution of knowledge capture in this period. Some of them are from researchers who were present at the first knowledge acquisition workshop in 1986. The keynote by Brian R. Gaines is entitled "Knowledge Capture through the Millennia: From Cuneiform to the Semantic Web"; a presentation by Richard Benjamins is entitled "Has 'Knowledge' Been the Driver?"; James Fan and Aditya Kalyanpur offer "Building Watson -- A Brief Overview of DeepQA and the Jeopardy! Challenge"; Tom Gruber's talk is entitled "Design for Intelligence: AI and UI and the Intelligent Use"; Bill Swartout's talk is called "Let Me Tell You a Story....", and finally Bob Wielinga sums up his experiences "In Pursuit of Knowledge: 25 Years of Knowledge Acquisition."
