Knowledge Acquisition Workshops
Knowledge Acquisition Workshop Series
The first workshop on Knowledge Acquisition for Knowledge-Based Systems
was held in Banff, Alberta, Canada in October 1986. This KAW series has
continued on an annual basis and the 10th KAW was held in Banff November,
1996, and the 11th KAW will be in Banff April 18-23, 1998 (see KAW98 below).
A parallel series of European Knowledge Acquisition Workshops
commenced with EKAW87 in London, England in September 1987. The EKAW series
has continued on an annual basis in various European cities. The
EKAW was held in Nottingham, UK, May 14-17, 1996, the
EKAW in Catelonia, Spain, October 15-18, 1997, and the
EKAW will be at Schloss Dagstuhl in Germany, May 26-29, 1999.
A further series of Knowledge Acquisition Workshops in Pacific Rim
countries commenced with JKAW90 in Kyoto, Japan in October 1990. It was
followed by AKAW91 in Australia in August 1991, and PKAW96 in Australia,
23-25 October 1996. PKAW98 will be held in Singapore, November 22-23, 1998,
in conjunction with
As a spin-off from some of the tracks at KAW96 a AAAI Spring Symposium
on Artificial Intelligence in Knowledge Management
took place at Stanford University, March 24-26, 1997. The proceedings are
