23 - 25 September 2019, Second Workshop on INteraction-based Knowledge Sharing (WINKS-2), Graz, Austria

Date: 23 - 25 September 2019
Location: Graz, Austria
Deadline: Saturday 15 June 2019

This Second Workshop on INteraction-based Knowledge Sharing (WINKS-2) collocated with JOWO 2019 is aimed at researchers and practitioners investigating issues related to aspects of (autonomous) knowledge sharing, where the integration of knowledge is inherently interaction-based, irrespective of whether the interaction is machine to machine, or human to machine.

Gradually expanding, distributed systems heighten the need of dynamic interactive knowledge-sharing processes and ever more sophisticated mechanisms are used to acquire and elicit knowledge. A paradigm shift has emerged that views knowledge creation, curation and evolution as a collaborative and interactive process between autonomous entities. As a highly interdisciplinary workshop, WINKS-2 invites submissions that address the fundamental issues and challenges posed by interaction-based approaches to knowledge sharing. At the same time, we are interested in submissions that provide solutions for allowing knowledge sharing interactively, with a particular focus on the processes, mechanisms and protocols underlying the proposed solution.

3 types of submissions are sollicited:
- Full papers: mature work describing original research and its validation (10-12 pages including references)
 - Short papers: research papers describing interesting new open issues and challenges, and opinions on the status of the field (5-6 pages including references)
 - Demonstration notes: research papers describing the development of a system that is to be part of the system demonstration session of the workshop (5-6 pages including references).
Papers should be submitted non-anonymously in PDF format following IOS Press formatting guidelines. All submissions should be double-blind and will receive a minimum of two peer reviews.
