The 2016 Pacific Rim Knowledge Acquisition Workshop (PKAW 2016)
Welcome to the 2016 Pacific Rim Knowledge Acquisition Workshop (PKAW 2016) to be held at Phuket, Thailand on August 22-23, 2016. Over the past two decades, PKAW has provided a forum for researchers and practitioners working in the area of knowledge acquisition and machine intelligence. In 2016, PKAW 2016 will be held as part of the 14th Pacific Rim International Conference on Artificial Intelligence (PRICAI 2016). The purpose of this workshop is to provide a chance for intensive discussion on the aspects of knowledge acquisition.
In recent years, unprecedented data, called big data, has become available and knowledge acquisition and learning from big data is increasing in importance. Various knowledge can be acquired not only from human experts but also from diverse data. Simultaneous acquisition from both data and human experts increases its importance. Multidisciplinary research including knowledge engineering, machine learning, natural language processing, human computer interaction, and artificial intelligence are required. We invite authors to submit papers on all aspects of these area.
Another important and related area is applications. Not only in the engineering field but also in the social science field (e.g., economics, social networks, and sociology), recent progress of knowledge acquisition and data engineering techniques is realizing interesting applications. We also invite submissions that present applications tested and deployed in real-life settings. Those papers should address lessons learned from application development and deployment.
All papers will be peer reviewed, and those accepted for the workshop will be included in the Springer LNAI proceedings.
Paper format and length
Papers must follow the Springer Lecture Notes format. The paper
should be between 10 to 15 pages long. For format templates, please
see the Springer.
