K-CAP 2007: Call for Workshop Proposals
*The submission deadline for workshop proposals has been recently postponed to April 20, 2007.*
The K-CAP 2007 Program Committee invites proposals for the Workshop
Program for K-CAP 2007. Workshops will be held on Sunday, October 28th,

aim for the workshop program is to promote and collect
multidisciplinary research directions that contribute to knowledge capture from a variety of
sources. Members from all research areas related to knowledge capture
are invited to submit workshop proposals.
We particularly welcome workshops at discipline boundaries.
To encourage interaction and a broad exchange of ideas, each workshop
will be limited to 30 participants and ample time will be allotted for
