Bringing the results of Artificial Intelligence research into applications in information technology and industry is one of the key aims of the Knowledge Technology. This wide research discipline refers to a collection of tools including methods and softwares enabling better representation, organization and exchange of three concepts such as data, information and knowledge. Knowledge technology is related to many research areas including knowledge representation, knowledge acquisition and discovery from data, information retrieval, agent technology, semantic webs, among others.
Many efforts of researchers have been made to intensively investigate and develop efficient methods for knowledge technology. In this Workshop, more focus will be put on soft computing techniques and methods for knowledge technology, which would include main constituents of fuzzy logic, rough set theory, probabilistic and evidential reasoning, neural networks, and evolutionary algorithms as well as their hybrids. The Workshop aims at providing a forum for exchanges of ideas and research results as well as for fostering interaction and discussion among all participants on related fields of research and their practical applications.
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
Concept Formation and Learning
Formal Concept Analysis
Molecular and Quantum Computing

Potential authors are invited to submit their abstract by August 20, 2008 and the full papers by October 1, 2008. The submission shall be made by email to the workshop organizers (see Contact information). The submissions will be evaluated by Workshop PC members for scientific quality and for relevance to the Workshop.
Submissions should include abstract, 5-10 keywords, the e-mail address of the corresponding author, and must not exceed 15 pages, including tables and figures, in PDF format. Submission of a paper should be regarded as an undertaking that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors must attend the conference to present the work. The final version of an accepted paper will be restricted to be around 12 pages with Springer's Lecture Notes format.
All accepted papers will be available online for free download. After the Workshop, the authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their works for consideration in a special issue of an international journal (pending).
Deadline for abstract submission:
Deadline for full paper submission:
October 1, 2008 October 12(extended).
Notification of acceptance/rejection:
October 25, 2008 November 10(extended).
Deadline for the final camera-ready:
2008 November 20, 2008.
