CFP: IUI-2008 Workshop on Common Sense Knowledge and Goal-Oriented Interfaces (CSKGOI 2008)

	Common Sense Knowledge and Goal-Oriented Interfaces (CSKGOI 2008)
	A workshop at Intelligent User Interfaces (IUI 2008)
	January 13, 2008
	Canary Islands, Spain

  When interacting with user interfaces, users have to bridge the gap between their goals expressed in mental terms and the interface's structures and functions expressed in physical terms. This gap has been characterized as the "Gulf of Execution", and it may imply significant cognitive processing on the users' side in order for them to successfully accomplish their goals.
  If user interfaces could understand, at a high-level, our goals, our problems, and our social procedures, users could have cognitively accessible, dynamic interfaces accommodating their unique needs, beyond the range of applications anticipated by the designers.
  For computers to realize such a goal-oriented paradigm,
 * They must have access to information about the world that human users take for granted. This information, which forms the basis for goal-directed computer interactions, is common sense knowledge.
 * They must provide for algorithms and techniques that are capable of acquiring and structuring knowledge about user goals.
 * They must have adequate means to represent knowledge about user goals in a way that allows for reasoning and inference about them.
 * They must provide for user interfaces that effectively map users' goals on the computer's functionalities and structures.
  This workshop has the goal of bringing together researchers from different domains that share an interest in common sense knowledge and goal-oriented knowledge representations in the context of intelligent user interfaces.

Important Dates:

    Workshop Paper submissions: Sunday, 11 November, 2007, 5pm US EDT (2100 UTC)
    Workshop Paper notification: Saturday, 1 December, 2007
    Camera-ready Paper due: Sunday, 9 December, 2007, 5pm US EDT (2100 UTC)
    Workshop: Sunday, 13 January, 2008

Paper Submission:

  We encourage submissions from researchers with a variety of backgrounds, including common sense reasoning, natural language processing, automatic classification, ontology, semantic web, requirements engineering, knowledge management and information sciences.

  Topics include, but are not limited to:

  Knowledge Acquisition:
    Mining of common sense knowledge and goals from different corpora
    Algorithms and techniques for collaborative knowledge acquisition
    Methods for knowledge validation
  Knowledge Representation
    Representational theories of commonsense knowledge
    Distributed forms of knowledge representation, such as goal-oriented ontologies and metadata
    Goal-oriented modeling languages and frameworks
    Algorithms for goal-centered reasoning and inference
  User Interfaces
    Integrating commonsense knowledge and inference into user interfaces
    Observational and interactive techniques for goal elicitation and recognition
    Evaluation of goal-oriented user interfaces
    Goal-oriented software configuration

 We are accepting full papers and demos. Full papers should be between 6 and 10 pages. Demo submissions should consist of a brief description (1-4 pages) and (a link to) a screencast showing the prototype in action (( 5 minutes, formats: mpeg, flash, avi). Please follow the formatting guidelines of the main IUI conference, which are detailed here. Send your paper submissions in PDF format to: CSKGOI@gmail.com 

While there will not be printed proceedings, all papers will be included in the Conference CD or USB memory stick. The formatting of Workshop papers should therefore follow the IUI format.
