The biennial International Conference On Knowledge Capture (K-CAP), formerly the Knowledge Acquisition Workshop (KAW) series 1), is providing a forum that brings together members of disparate research communities that are interested in efficiently capturing knowledge from a variety of sources and in creating representations that can be useful for reasoning, analysis, and other forms of machine processing.

K-CAP is sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery, Special Interest Group on Artificial (ACM SIGAI) among others.

K-CAP is held alternately with EKAW – the International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management.

Of special “Knowledge Management” interest:

  • Workshops
    • 2007: Knowledge Management and Semantic Web for Engineering Design
    • 2003: Knowledge Management and the Semantic Web
  • Sessions:
    • 1999: Knowledge Management and Knowledge Distribution throughout the Internet (plenary); Knowledge Management (parallel)
    • 1998: Knowledge management and knowledge distribution through the Internet (parallel)
