The 13th International Workshop on Knowledge Acquisition Reuse & Evaluation


The International Workshop on Knowledge Acquisition, Reuse and Evaluation aims to bring together researchers, scientists, engineers, and scholar students to exchange and share their experiences, new ideas, and research results about all aspects of Knowledge, Ontology, Semantic Web or Knowledge Engineering. We will discuss the practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted.

This workshop will focus on the theoreticians and practitioners concerned with developing methods and systems that assist the knowledge management process and assessing the suitability of such methods. Thus, the workshop includes all aspects of acquiring, modelling and managing knowledge and their role in the construction of knowledge-based systems. Knowledge acquisition still remains the bottleneck for building a knowledge-based system. Reuse and sharing of knowledge bases are major issues, and no satisfactory solutions have been agreed upon yet.

There is a wide range of research. Much of the work in this field has been knowledge acquisition. The advent of the digital information age has brought the problem of knowledge reuse and evaluation. Our ability to analyse, evaluate and assist the user in reusing knowledge present a great challenge for the next years. A new generation of computational techniques and tools is required to support the acquisition, reuse and evaluation of useful knowledge from the rapidly growing volume of information. All of these are to be discussed in this workshop.

Topics for the workshop include, but are not limited to:

  • Tools and techniques for knowledge acquisition, knowledge update and knowledge validation
  • Knowledge portals
  • Web-based approaches for knowledge management
  • Agent-based approaches for knowledge management
  • Software agents for semantic web
  • Semantic web-based knowledge management
  • Tools, languages, and techniques for semantic annotation
  • Semantic searching
  • Semantic brokering
  • CSCW and cooperative approaches for knowledge management
  • Agent-based approaches for knowledge management
  • Evaluation of knowledge acquisition techniques
  • Information and knowledge structures
  • Languages and frameworks for knowledge and knowledge modelling
  • Ontology creation, evolution, reconciliation, and mediation
  • Ontology-based approaches for knowledge management
  • Knowledge delivery methods
  • Knowledge life cycle
  • Knowledge and information extraction and discovery techniques
  • Corporate Semantic Webs for knowledge management
  • Peer-to-peer approaches for knowledge management
  • Knowledge extraction from images/pictures
  • Intelligent knowledge-based systems
  • Decision support and expert systems
  • Re-usability of software/knowledge/information
  • Semantic web inference methodologies
  • Big Data Ingestion, Data Catalog and schema matching
  • Big Data storage: data lake, data lake house
  • Big Data Analytics for knowledge management


Each submission should be at most 8 pages in total, including bibliography and well-marked appendices, and must follow the IEEE double columns publication format available at:

Manuscript templates for IEEE conference proceedings

Paper submission will only be online via SITIS 2023 EasyChair submission system.

Only pdf files will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. All submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression by at least two reviewers and then will be checked for plagiarism and self-plagiarism by IEEE. The organizers will examine the reviews and make final paper selections.


All the papers accepted for the workshop will be included in the conference proceedings. The proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society and referenced in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library, Scopus, DBLP and major indexes. The proceedings of the previous editions of SITIS are available here.


At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the workshop. The workshop registration fees are determined by the SITIS organizers. Both in-presence and remote presentations are allowed. Further details are available here. A single registration for the workshop or the conference allows attending both events.
