The International Workshop on Knowledge Acquisition, Reuse and Evaluation aims to bring together researchers, scientists, engineers, and scholar students to exchange and share their experiences, new ideas, and research results about all aspects of Knowledge, Ontology, Sermantic Web or Knowledge Engineering. We will discuss the practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted.

This workshop will focus on the theoreticians and practitioners concerned with developing methods and systems that assist the knowledge management process and assessing the suitability of such methods. Thus, the workshop includes all aspects of acquiring, modeling and managing knowledge, and their role in the construction of knowledge-based 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. The advent of the age of digital information has brought the problem of knowledge reuse and knowledge evaluation. Our ability to analyze, evaluate and assist user in reusing knowledge present a great challenge of the next years. A new generation of computational techniques and tools is required to support the acquisition, the reuse and the evaluation of useful knowledge from the rapidly growing volume of information. All of these are to be discussed in this workshop.

A non-exhaustive list of topics for the workshop includes the following:

 • Tools and techniques for knowledge acquisition, knowledge update and knowledge validation
• knowledge portals
 • Web-based approaches for knowledge management
 • Agent-based approaches for knowledge management
 • Software agents for semantic web
 • Semantic web-based knowledge management
 • Tools, languages, and techniques for semantic annotation
 • Semantic searching
 • Semantic brokering
 • CSCW and cooperative approaches for knowledge management
 • Agent-based approaches for knowledge management
 • Evaluation of knowledge acquisition techniques
 • Information and knowledge structures
 • Languages and frameworks for knowledge and knowledge modeling
 • Ontology creation, evolution, reconciliation, and mediation
 • Ontology-based approaches for knowledge management
 • Knowledge delivery methods
 • Knowledge life cycle
 • Knowledge and information extraction and discovery techniques
 • Corporate Semantic Webs for knowledge management
 • Peer-to-peer approaches for knowledge management
 • Knowledge extraction from images/pictures
 • Intelligent knowledge-based systems
 • Decision support and expert systems
 • Re-usability of software/knowledge/information
• Semantic web inference methodologies
