Proposal for special sessions must include a title, rationale, session outline, contact information for the session chairs(s), a list of authors who have agreed to present paper in the session, and abstract of each paper. If any of these requirements is missing in a proposal, it will not be accepted. Proposals for special sessions should be submitted to the conference secretariat  before September 15, 2007.

Submission Deadlines:
Paper submission: September 15, 2007 
Notification of acceptance: October 15, 2007
Final paper submission and authors’ registration: November 15, 2007
Conference Dates: December 20-22, 2007

Proposal for Organizing a Workshop

We invite proposals for workshops. Workshops are intended to provide a forum for the discussion of a specific topic from the field of Knowledge Systems between an international group of researchers. Each workshop should have at least 8 paper presentations. The workshop organiser will be responsible for advertising the workshop, reviewing and selecting the papers. Financial assistance for the workshop organiser will be limited to one fee waiver for the conference. Papers accepted for Workshops will be published in the ICKS 2007 Proceedings. After the Conference some papers presented at the Workshops will be considered for publication in appropriate journals as Special Issues with the Workshop organiser as the Guest Editor of the journal.

Proposals to organise workshops should include the following information:

title of the workshop
Workshops on any aspect of Knowledge Systems may be proposed.
Of special interest are topics that are just emerging e.g. new application areas.
name, affiliation, mailing address and e-mail address of the proposer(s)
a description of the topic of the session (not exceeding 100 words)
a description of how the workshop will contribute to the field of Knowledge Systems

a short description on how the session will be advertised so as to ensure a sufficiently wide range of authors

The deadline for proposal submission is September 15, 2007.

Papers for workshops should be submitted directly to the Workshop. Deadlines for workshop papers will in principle be the same as for main-track papers. The Workshop organiser will be expected to use the conference paper submission deadline and to review the papers on basis of the same criteria as those in the main track. The list of papers accepted for a workshop should be sent to the Workshops Chair before September 15, 2007.

The final acceptance of a workshop will be based on the quality of these papers, the coherence of the workshop and degree to which a broad audience is addressed.
