The poster and demonstration session of EKAW 2010 is an opportunity for
researchers and practitioners to present their innovative prototypes,
ongoing projects, lessons learned and late-breaking results, to discuss with
other conference participants and to establish new collaborations. We also
encourage contributions that are likely to stipulate critical or
controversial discussions about any of the areas of the EKAW conference
series (knowledge management, knowledge engineering and acquisition, and
knowledge in use), and with a special focus on knowledge management and
engineering by the masses, which is this year’s special topic.


For further information about EKAW 2010, please refer to the conference
homepage:  <http://ekaw2010.inesc-id.pt> http://ekaw2010.inesc-id.pt


Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to the following areas
(from those of the main conference):

1) Knowledge Management

    * Methodologies and tools for knowledge management

    * Aspects of collaboration, distribution and evolution of knowledge in

    * Advanced knowledge modeling languages and tools

    * Collaborative and social approaches to knowledge management and


5) Special focus knowledge management and engineering by the masses

    * Human-machine synergy in knowledge acquisition

    * Incentives for knowledge creation and semantic annotation

    * Enhancing human productivity (e.g. knowledge workers)

    * Social and human factors in knowledge management

    * Collective and collaborative intelligence in knowledge management

    * Social tagging and folksonomies, social networks

Authors must submit a 2-page paper in PDF format (ACM style -
http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates -, double
column), which describes the planned contents of the poster or demo to be
presented. The paper should clearly indicate the type of presentation (i.e.
poster, demo or both) and an informative abstract motivating its relevance
with respect to the topics of interest of EKAW 2010. Each paper will be
reviewed by members of the poster/demonstration program committee, who will
judge the originality, topicality and clarity of the proposed contents.
