CFP: E-LKR'2011, 1st International Workshop on Exploiting Large Knowledge Repositories
1st International Workshop on
In conjunction with DEXA 2011
Very large knowledge repositories (LKR) are being created, published and exploited in a wide range of fields, including Bioinformatics, Biomedicine, Geography, e-Government, and many others. Some well known examples of LKRs include the Wikipedia, large scale Bioinformatics databases such as those published by the EBI or the NIH, and government data repositories such as data.gov. These repositories are publicly available and can be used openly. Their exploitation offers many possibilities for improving current information systems, and opens new challenges and research opportunities to the information processing and databases areas.
The main goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers that are working on the creation of new LKRs on any domain, or on their exploitation for specific information processing tasks such as data analysis, text mining, natural language processing and visualization, as well as for knowledge engineering issues, like knowledge acquisition, validation and personalization.
Research, demo and position papers showing the benefits that exploiting LKRs can bring to the information processing area will be especially welcome to this workshop.
The main topics that can be considered relevant to the workshop include, but are not limited to:
Accepted Papers will be published in the DEXA 2011 Workshops Proceedings by the IEEE Press.
Paper Sumission Details
Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research and application papers that are not being considered in another forum. Electronic submission of manuscripts in PDF format is required.
Manuscripts will be limited to 5 two-column pages (IEEE Proceeding style) including figures and references. Please follow the Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines to prepare your papers. Authors of accepted papers will be requested to sign the IEEE copyright form. The author guidelines can be found at the IEEE Conference Publishing Services.
At least one author of each accepted paper is required to attend the conference and present the paper.
