Thank You!

K-CAP 2007 was a great success, with 71 people attending the main conference, and 56 attending the workshops. A big thank you to all of those who attended the conference, and to those who presented their work, for helping make K-CAP 2007 one of the best yet!

Also a big thank you to all those involved in the organisation of K-CAP 2007, both the main conference and the four workshops, without your hard work K-CAP 2007 would not have been such a success! Similarly, we would like to thank all those on the program committee for all their efforts.

Finally, we would also like to thank our sponsors: ACM SIGART, AAAI, Boeing, Vulcan Inc. and Knowledge Web.

We look forward to seeing you all again at K-CAP 2009!
