Knowledge Engineering refers to all technical, scientific and social aspects involved in building, maintaining and using knowledge-based systems. Knowledge Engineering is a multidisciplinary field, bringing in concepts and methods from several computer science domains such as artificial intelligence, databases, expert systems, decision support systems and geographic information systems. From the software development point of view, knowledge engineering uses principles that are strongly related to software engineering. Knowledge engineering is also related to mathematical logic, as well as strongly involved in cognitive science and socio-cognitive engineering where the knowledge is produced by socio-cognitive aggregates (mainly humans) and is structured according to our understanding of how human reasoning and logic works. Currently, a major concern in knowledge engineering is the construction of knowledge bases or conceptual frameworks, often designated as ontologies. ICKE aims at becoming a major meeting point for researchers and practitioners interested in Knowledge Engineering.

ICKE 2009 will have several invited Keynote Speakers, who are internationally recognized experts in their areas. Their names are not yet confirmed.


Authors should submit an original paper in English, carefully checked for correct grammar and spelling, using the on-line submission procedure. Please check the paper formats so you may be aware of the accepted paper page limits. The guidelines for paper formatting provided at the conference web site must be strictly used for all submitted papers. The submission format is the same as the camera-ready format. Please check and carefully follow the instructions and templates provided. Each paper should clearly indicate the nature of its technical/scientific contribution, and the problems, domains or environments to which it is applicable. Papers that are out of the conference scope or contain any form of plagiarism will be rejected without reviews.

Remarks about the on-line submission procedure: 1. A "double-blind" paper evaluation method will be used. To facilitate that, the authors are kindly requested to produce and provide the paper, WITHOUT any reference to any of the authors. This means that is necessary to remove the authors personal details, the acknowledgements section and any reference that may disclose the authors identity. LaTeX/PS/PDF/DOC/DOCX/RTF format are accepted. 2. The web submission procedure automatically sends an acknowledgement, by e-mail, to the contact author.

Paper submission types: Regular Paper Submission A regular paper presents a work where the research is completed or almost finished. It may be accepted as a ??full paper?? (30 min. oral presentation), a ??short paper?? (20 min. oral presentation) or a ??poster??.

Position Paper Submission A position paper presents an arguable opinion about an issue. The goal of a position paper is to convince the audience that your opinion is valid and worth listening to, without the need to present completed research work and/or validated results. It is, nevertheless, important to support your argument with evidence to ensure the validity of your claims. A position paper may be a short report and discussion of ideas, facts, situations, methods, procedures or results of scientific research (bibliographic, experimental, theoretical, or other) focused on one of the conference topic areas. The acceptance of a position paper is restricted to the categories of "short paper" or "poster", i.e. a position paper is not a candidate to acceptance as "full paper".

Camera-ready: After the reviewing process is completed, the contact author (the author who submits the paper) of each paper will be notified of the result, by e-mail. The authors are required to follow the reviews in order to improve their paper before the camera-ready submission.

All accepted papers will be published in the proceedings, under an ISBN reference, in paper and in CD-ROM support.

The short answer is yes. There are nlapiapces out there that will allow you to edit video without a pc. You probably could find some equipment on E-bay if you type in Linear editing equipment, Lanc edit controlers, etc.The problem is you will need a controller two monitors and two decks. (One being a player and one being the record deck.) In addition you will probably need a stand alone DVD burner. I have not done a price check on that recently, but I know at one point you were looking at around two grand for that type of equipment used. (That was amatuer equipment, for professional equipment you were looking at a lot more money.) For about the same amount of money you can purchase a nonlinear system like a casablanca. My only issue with an appliance like that is they are difficult to upgrade and don't play well with other things like photo editing software.I think you would be better off buying a MAc Mini for $600 with extra memory, and a Super Drive DVD burner. It comes with I-movie and I-DVD which are great stand alone editing and authoring programs for beginers. The CPU is small and with a KVM Swicth you can use the same Keyboard mouse and monitor as your PC. Less money than a linear system, More controlable than a linear system, Less space than an editing appliance like a casablanca, and upgradeable. Whats to loose?TonyPS. Linear systems are faster than non-linear systems for event style videography like weddings or church services. especially if you only want to add titles.
