Announcement

In today's information-centric world, effective access to and use of 
knowledge
is a key enabler for progress. Driven by the demands for intelligent
applications and the explosion of information on the Web, the study of 
Knowledge
Capture is crucially important. Knowledge Capture is the extraction of 
useful
knowledge from diverse sources: unstructured information sources,
semi-structured and structured data sources, knowledge graphs and 
directly from
crowds and individuals, either through observation or implicit or explicit
elicitation.
The wealth of information available from such a variety of sources calls 
for new
methods of Knowledge Capture that draw both from traditional knowledge
acquisition techniques and from more data-driven techniques such as 
large-scale
data mining, statistical analysis and data analytics.
Researchers and practitioners who work in the area of Knowledge Capture
traditionally participate in several distinct communities, including 
Knowledge
Engineering, Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, Human-Computer
Interaction, Artificial Inteligence and the Semantic Web. K-CAP 2015 will
provide a forum to bring together members of disparate research 
communities who
are interested in all aspects of capturing knowledge from a variety of 
sources,
as well as those interested in creating representations that can be 
useful for
reasoning, analysis, and other forms of machine processing.


Venue

This year's K-CAP conference will be held at the Dolce Palisades Hotel and
Conference Center, just outside New York City. The Dolce Palisades is 
within 30
miles of the NYC airports: John F. Kennedy (JFK), LaGuardia (LGA), 
Newark (EWR)
and Westchester (HPN). The venue is minutes by car to Tarrytown Station, 
with
service to Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan.
K-CAP 2015 is also conveniently close in time and space to this year's
International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2015) at Lehigh University in
Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Although the two conferences are not quite
"co-located", those at K-CAP 2015 can easily attend the last K-CAP plenary
session, have their free K-CAP lunch and make it to Bethlehem to check 
in prior
to the first day of ISWC activities.
