The International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management (EKAW) is concerned with all aspects of eliciting, acquiring, modelling and managing knowledge, as well as its role, in the construction of knowledge-intensive systems and services for the semantic web, knowledge management, e-business, natural language processing, intelligent information integration, etc.

Besides the regular conference tracks, EKAW will host a number of workshops and tutorials. Our workshops provide an informal setting where participants have the opportunity to discuss specific technical topics in an atmosphere that fosters the active exchange of ideas. Tutorials will enable attendees to fully appreciate current issues, main schools of thought, and possible application areas.

Topics of Interest

In order to meet these goals, workshop/tutorial proposals should address topics that satisfy the following criteria:

  • their topic falls within the general scope of EKAW 2022  (see:;
  • there is a clear focus on a specific technology, problem or application;
  • there is a sufficiently large community interested in the topic.

Submission Guidelines

Proposals should be submitted via EasyChair at: 2022

Submissions should be a single PDF file of no more than 5 pages, specifying “Workshop Proposal” or “Tutorial Proposal” as their topic, and should contain the following information.

Workshop Proposals:
