Subject: PKAW02, 2002 Pacific Rim Knowledge Acquisition Workshop, deadline May 31, 2002

PKAW 2002: The 2002 Pacific Rim Knowledge Acquisition Workshop in conjunction with PRICAI 2002

August 18-19, 2002 National Center of Sciences, Tokyo, Japan

The objective of this workshop is to assemble theoreticians and practitioners concerned with developing methods and systems that assist the knowledge acquisition process and assessing the suitability of such methods. Thus, the workshop includes all aspects of eliciting, acquiring, discovering, modeling and managing knowledge, and their role in the construction of knowledge-intensive systems. Knowledge acquisition still remains the bottleneck for building a knowledge-based system. Reuse and sharing of knowledge bases are major issues and no satisfactory solutions have been agreed upon yet. There is a wide range of research. Much of the work in this field has been knowledge acquisition from human experts. The advent of the age of digital information has brought the problem of data overload. Our ability to analyze and understand massive datasets lags far behind our ability to gather and store the data. A new generation of computational techniques and tools are required to support the acquisition of useful knowledge from the rapidly growing volume of data. All of these are to be discussed in this workshop.
