Call for Workshop Proposals

The K-CAP 2009 Program Committee invites proposals for the Workshop Program at K-CAP 2009. Workshops and Tutorials will be held on Tuesday, September 1st, the day before the regular conference technical sessions begin, at the conference hotel in Redondo Beach, CA, USA.

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. 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.
