K-CAP 2007: Call for Workshop Proposals

*Deadline Postponed*

*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, the day before the regular conference technical sessions begin, at the conference hotel in Whistler, BC, Canada.

K-CAP workshops provide an informal setting where workshop 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. 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 general discussion.
