K-CAP 2003 Workshop October 26, 2003 at Sanibel, Florida, USA
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 Programsoftware 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.
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.
workshop continues the discussion started at the Workshop of
Knowledge Markup and Semantic Annotation (SemAnnot2001), which was
held at Victoria, B.C, Canada, October 21-23, 2001 as a wokshop of the
1st Intl. Conference on Knowledge Capture(K-Cap 2001).
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 21, 2003 in electronic form in 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.
