‘The 11th International Workshop on Knowledge Management and Acquisition for Smart Systems and Services (PKAW 2010)’ has provided a forum for the past two decades for researchers and practitioners working in the area of machine intelligence. PKAW covers a spectrum of techniques and approaches to implement smartness in IT applications. With the growing recognition of the pivotal role that smartness plays in the sustainability, competitiveness and growth of an organisation, together with the difficulties associated with effectively managing knowledge, finding solutions to address the knowledge acquisition bottleneck is even more important in today’s society than in the early beginnings of this field. This workshop will explore and disseminate the latest solutions.

Machine intelligence solutions incorporating other areas of AI such as ontological engineering, agent-based technology, robotics, image recognition and the Semantic Web are common, as are knowledge acquisition methods related to other fields of computing such as software engineering, security, databases, the Internet, information retrieval, language technology and game technology. Many solutions are application focussed addressing real world problems such as knowledge reuse, sharing, merging and reconciliation within a wide range of problem domains.


Papers are invited for consideration in all aspects of machine intelligence, including (but not restricted to):

  • Fundamental views on machine intelligence
    o Knowledge learning
    o Knowledge management
    o Knowledge representation
    o Ontology Engineering
  • Algorithmic approaches to machine intelligence
    o Automated and manual knowledge management and learning
  • Tools and techniques for machine intelligence
    o Business intelligence applications / Business rule systems
    o Biometrics and bioinformatics
    o Web intelligence / Web 2.0 & Web 3.0
    o Ubiquitous Environments
