Knowledge Engineering and Software Engineering

Workshop at the
29th German Conference on Artificial Intelligence (KI-2006)
14. - 19. June 2006
Bremen, Germany

Workshop venue: As the KI conference the workshop will take place at the Concress Center Bremen (CCB).

Aims and Scope

Intelligent systems have been successfully developed in various domains over the last years. The process of building such systems is based on techniques and tools from the fields of knowledge engineering and software engineering. Thus, declarative software engineering techniques have been established in many areas, such as knowledge systems, logic programming, constraint programming, and lately in the context of the Semantic Web.

The second workshop on Knowledge Engineering and Software Engineering (KESE 2006) wants to bring together researchers and practitioners from both fields of software engineering and artificial intelligence. The intention is to give ample space for exchanging latest research results as well as knowledge about practical experience. The 1st Workshop on Knowledge Engineering and Software Engineering was held at the KI-2005.

Final Versions of Papers: 28. May 2006 (received)
Workshop: 14. June 2006

Submission Details

Papers should be formated according to the Springer LLNCS guidelines. The length of each paper should not exceed 12 pages for regular papers and 6 pages for short papers (including figures and references). All papers must be written in English and submitted in PDF format. The submission process will be electronical. Please email your submission to one of the workshop organizers.


The one-day workshop will be held with presentations of the accepted papers. A comfortable time slot for discussions will be given. The submitted papers will be reviewed by at least two members of the program committee.
The proceedings will be published as a technical report, and it is considered to publish a selection of extended papers after a post-workshop review process.
