*********************************************************************************

Knowledge Capture (KCAP) 2013

*********************************************************************************


The International Conference on Knowledge Capture (K-CAP) provides a 
forum that brings together members of diverse research communities who 
are interested in efficiently capturing knowledge from a vast range of 
sources, including human experts, and in creating representations that 
can be useful for building knowledge-intensive services in a variety of 
fields, such as the semantic web, knowledge management, e-business, 
natural language processing, intelligent information integration, and so 
on. The focus of the 7th edition of K-CAP will be on “Knowledge Capture 
in the Age of Massive Web Data”. Besides a research and an application 
track, K-CAP will host a number of workshops and tutorials on topics 
related to the theme of the conference. K-CAP workshops provide an 
informal setting where the participants have the opportunity to discuss 
specific technical topics in an atmosphere that fosters the active 
exchange of ideas. Our aim for the workshop program is to promote and 
collect multidisciplinary research directions that contribute to 
knowledge capture from a variety of sources. K-CAP Tutorials enable 
attendees to fully appreciate current issues, main schools of thought, 
and possible application areas.


***Topics of Interest***

We encourage the submission of workshops and tutorial proposals on all 
topics that falls in the general scope of K-CAP 2013, from traditional 
knowledge acquisition techniques to more computational approaches. In 
particular, we encourage the submission of workshop and tutorial 
proposals related to the special focus “Knowledge Capture in the Age of 
Massive Web Data”


*** Submission Guidelines for Workshops***

Workshop proposals should be submitted via EasyChair at 
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=kcap2013workshopstut as a
