A hitchhiker’s guide to Ontology
Language Models have brought major breakthroughs in natural language processing. Notwithstanding this success, I will show that certain applications still need symbolic representations. I will then show how different methods (language models and others) can be harnessed to build such symbolic representations. I will also introduce our main project in this direction, the YAGO knowledge base. I will then talk about the incompleteness of knowledge bases. We have developed several techniques to estimate how much data is missing in a knowledge base, as well as rule mining methods to derive that data. I will then present our work on efficient querying of knowledge bases. Finally, I will talk about applications of knowledge bases in the domain of speech analysis and the digital humanities, as well as about our methods for explainable AI.

Call for Papers Deadline Extended!

Full Paper submission deadline: July 05, 2024 July 12, 2024

The full paper submission deadline for for the Call for Papers has been extended to July 12, 2024. However, the Abstract submission deadline has not changed and remains 01/07/2024.. The deadline extension is valid for all tracks (research, in-use, position). Don't miss this opportunity to contribute to our conference! Always check out our Important dates to be updated.

The Conference

EKAW (pronounced /ˈiːkoʊ/) conference serves as a premier gathering for scholars, researchers, and practitioners in the fields of knowledge engineering and knowledge management. The 24th International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management (EKAW-24) will take place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands (in-person conference). The conference will be held at the Amsterdam Science Park campus from November 26th to November 28th 2024. EKAW is renowned for its high-quality research presentations, stimulating discussions, and opportunities for networking, making it an essential event for anyone interested in advancing knowledge engineering and knowledge management practices.

🔔 Check our Important dates page regularly to stay informed about any new or updated deadlines.

EKAW-24's Special Theme: Knowledge in the Age of Language Models

EKAW publishes original, high-quality papers related to eliciting, acquiring, modelling, and managing knowledge. Topics of EKAW24 include, but are not limited to, semantic web, knowledge management, knowledge discovery, information integration, natural language processing, intelligent systems, e-business, e-health, humanities, cultural heritage. In addition, this year's conference invites research articles focusing on algorithms, tools, methodologies, and applications that leverage the interplay between knowledge and Language Models. The contributions should deepen our understanding of how Language Models contribute to the dynamic landscape of knowledge acquisition and engineering and vice versa.


As with past proceedings, the EKAW 2024 proceedings will be published as a Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) volume. Authors are requested to consult the Instructions for Authors and adhere to the provided guidelines to ensure acceptance and a smooth publication process.
