Call for workshops and tutorials
In conjunction with EKAW 2018
November 12 - 16 Nancy, France

The International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management 
(EKAW) is concerned with all aspects of eliciting, acquiring, modelling and 
managing knowledge, as well its role in the construction of knowledge-intensive 
systems and services for the semantic web, knowledge management, e-business, 
natural language processing, intelligent information integration, etc. This 
year, EKAW will pay special attention to topics related to knowledge and 
artificial intelligence.

Besides the regular conference tracks, EKAW will host a number of workshops and 
tutorials on topics related to the theme of the conference. We hope our 
workshops to provide an informal setting where participants have the 
opportunity to discuss specific technical topics in an atmosphere that fosters
