Znalosti 2004 (i.e.
Knowledge 2004) is the third in the series of
Czech-Slovak conferences devoted to knowledge acquisition,
representation and exploitation. It will be held on
25-27 February 2004,
Santon Hotel, Brno, Czech Republic.
The conception of conferences was a response to
increasing interest in knowledge technologies in the Czech Republic
and Slovakia, in the last few years. Theoreticians and
practitioners from originally disparate professional communities
start to recognise conference as an opportunity for exchanging
opinions and experience, and for establishing scientific and
business links. An important point is the interdisciplinary nature
of key topics of the conference:
- Knowledge discovery in databases binds the
domain of Database Information Systems with those of Decision
Support and Scientific Discovery
- Methods of intelligent access to textual
information combine the mathematical background of
Information Retrieval with sophisticated methods of data
representation (e.g. using mark--up languages) and semantic
- Knowledge Engineering is well on its way
towards systematic application of computational logics on
knowledge expressed in web-oriented languages ( XML, RDF)
- An important role of the abovementioned disciplines is to
provide technological support to the Knowledge
Management in organisations.
The program of conference will consist of invited
lectures, tutorials, panel discussion, contributed talks and
company presentations. Further information can be obtained from the
Program Chair of conference Vaclav Snasel.
