ECAI 2004  Workshop on 

Agent-Mediated Knowledge Management (AMKM-04)

August 22-27, 2004, Universidad Politécnica de Valencia (Spain)


Knowledge Management (KM) has been a predominant trend in business in the recent years. Not only is Knowledge Management an important field of application for mature AI and related technologies, such as CBR for intelligent lessons-learned systems, or Text Classification for Information Push services; it also provides new challenges to the AI community, like context-aware knowledge delivery. Scaling-up research prototypes to real-world solutions usually requires an application-driven integration of several basic techno­lo­gies, e.g., ontologies for knowledge sharing and reuse, collaboration support like CSCW systems, and personalized information services. Typical characteristics to be dealt with in such an integration are:

Agent approaches have already been successfully employed for many partial solutions within the overall picture: Agent-based workflow, cooperative information gathering, intelligent information integration, or personal information agents, are established techniques in this area. In order to cope with the inherent complexity of a more comprehensive solution, the concept of Agent-mediated Knowledge Management (AMKM) deals with collective aspects of the domain in an attempt to cope with the conflict between desired order and actual behavior in dynamic environments. AMKM introduces a social layer, which structures the society of agents by defining specific roles and possible interactions between them.

In this workshop we invite contributions which illustrate methodological, technical and application aspects of Agent-mediated Knowledge Management. 
Topics of interest include:
