eKNOW 2018 conference tracks:

Knowledge fundamentals

Knowledge acquisition, processing, and management; Linguistic knowledge representation; Knowledge modeling and virtualization; Types of knowledge: structural, behavioral, relationships, etc.; Knowledge representation: visual-picture, connectionist model, semi-structured [a la workflow], structured/formal; Knowledge acquisition status: potential new knowledge, guessed semantics, confirmed semantics, auditing confirmed semantics, etc.; Knowledge update: probable insertion, validated insertion, auditing the insertion periodically based on new knowledge, etc.

Trends on annotation and extraction

Natural Languages-based features and systems; Annotation handling (multilingual, semantic, shared, open, prosody, etc.); Annotation as a Service (AaaS); Handling argument-based knowledge; Event-based knowledge; Tagging and supertagging; Extraction patterns; Uncertain reasoning; Visual error analysis; Domain-specific paraphrase extraction; Tweets and sentence compression; Role labeling semantic; Heterogeneous annotations

Trends on news and social media

New events-based knowledge;In-context news creation; Superlative expressions; News highlights generation systems; News special summarization systems (e.g, for blind and/or visually impaired people); Sentiment classification (emotion, irony, sarcasm, rhetorical questions, opinion, etc.); Rumor dynamics and social media; Contextual pragmatic models;; Social prediction; Prediction semantic analysis; Predictability of distrust; Aspect-based sentiment analysis; Argument generation systems; Relevance of citation recommendation; Retrieval bias and retrieval performance; High-speed captioning images; Language models for images; Participative KM platforms

Trends on knowledge processing support and mechanisms

Open knowledge bases; Structured knowledge bases; Big knowledge applications; Linked knowledge objects; Knowledge datasets; Machine translation systems; Convolution neural networks; Hybrid representations and equivalent semantics; Processing bilingual information; Topic trends and temporal signatures; Cross-view features; Pattern-based knowledge; Ranking optimization in context; Concept-based classification and ranking; KM design for life long learning and long term uses

Knowledge identification and discovery

Mining for knowledge; Knowledge identification: semantic-ID, etc.; Knowledge discovery: how to express knowledge requests?, how to find knowledge?, etc.; Knowledge refinement: after many acquisitions, former knowledge can change semantically or structurally, etc.; Knowledge clustering

Knowledge management systems

Knowledge data systems; Industrial systems; Context-aware and self-management systems; Imprecision/Uncertainty/Incompleteness in databases; Cognitive science and knowledge agent-based systems; Databases and mobility in databases; Zero-knowledge systems; Expert systems; Tutoring systems; Digital libraries

Knowledge management (KM) and event processing (EP)
