Welcome to the International Workshop on Knowledge Management and Acquisition for Intelligent Systems (PKAW)

PKAW  is part of the Pacific Rim International Conference on Artificial Intelligence (PRICAI).

The purpose of this workshop is to provide a forum for presentation and discussion of all aspects of knowledge acquisition from both the theoretician’s and practitioner’s points of view. While it is well accepted that knowledge is vital for our individual, organisational and societal survival and growth, the nature of knowledge and how it can be captured, represented, reused, maintained and shared are not fully-understood. This workshop will explore approaches that address these issues. PKAW includes knowledge acquisition research involving manual and automated methods and combinations of both.

We invite authors to submit papers on any aspect of knowledge engineering, management and acquisition research and practice. Research which addresses advanced application issues such as scalability, security, and robustness are particularly welcome. All papers will be peer reviewed, and those accepted for the conference will be included in the Springer LNAI proceedings.
