Call for Workshop Proposals

ICBK 2017 will feature a number of co-located workshops that are intended to provide an opportunity for participants from academia, industry and other related parties to discuss and exchange positions on current and emergent knowledge topics. 


We now call for prospective workshop organizers to submit proposals for interactive workshops (full-day or half-day) on all the relevant topics to ICBK 2017. The theme of ICBK 2017 is ¡°dealing with fragmented knowledge¡±. Therefore, we particularly encourage workshop proposals on relevant topics, especially those emerging topics of ¡°knowledge technologies¡± and interdisciplinary application areas such as fragmented knowledge discovery, representation and evolution, personalized knowledge navigation, knowledge visualization, social, semantic and ubiquitous computing, to help make the conference more relevant and appealing to both academia and industry.

Workshop attendants will exchange ideas and experience, establish common ground in research areas or practical problems, and hopefully identify new opportunities for collaboration and new directions for future activity. Preference will be given to timely topics that will favor highly interactive discussions.

All accepted workshop papers will be published in the main conference proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society.
