                                                 Workshop on
                          Knowledge Markup and Semantic Annotation
                           October 25-26, 2003 at Sanibel, Florida, USA 
                                               Workshop at the 
                    Second International Conference for Knowledge Capture
                          K-CAP'2003 is held in conjunction with the 
                 2nd International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC2003) 
                                         --- Call for Papers ---
    Capturing knowledge by using markup techniques and by supporting semantic
    annotations is a major technique for creating metadata. It is beneficial
    in a wide range of content-oriented intelligent applications.  One
    important application, for instance, is the Semantic Web. Here, knowledge
    markup is a major challenge, i.e. the problem is the providing of knowledge
    structures for existing syntactic or multimedia resources.  The workshops
    intend to bring together researchers and practitioners from such communities
    as W3C, MPEG-7, AI, Natural Language technologies and KR to discuss various
    aspects of knowledge markup and semantic annotation.
    Submission Papers:
    Practitioners and researchers interested in participating should submit 
    either a full paper (less than 6000 words) or a position paper (less than 1500 
    words) addressing relevant issues. Submit before July 21, 2003
    in electronic form (pdf) to: [email protected].
    Topics of Interest includes, but are not limited to:
    * authoring/annotation tools
    * web page annotation
    * collaborative, shared annotation
    * knowledge markup in the Semantic Web
    * ontology-based markup
    * using semantic annotations to define knowledge tools for supporting 
    knowledge markup
    * integrated software architecture based on semantic annotation
    * multimedia annotation (e.g. by using MPEG-7)
    * image/picture annotation
    * linguistic aspects of semantic annotation
    * capturing knowledge through Information Extraction and NLP
    * text mining for creating knowledge markup
    * evaluation of manual annotation
    * Usage of Annotations, e.g. learning resource metadata
    Although not required for the initial submission, we recommend to follow 
    the format guidlines of K-Cap 2001
    as this will be the required format for accepted papers.
