About IIKE

The 1st International Workshop on Intelligence & Interaction in Knowledge Engineering (IIKE 2019) will take place in Jan 30 - Feb 1, 2019 - Newport Beach, in conjunction with the 13th IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing (ICSC 2019).

Motivation


Recent efforts in AI driven knowledge engineering and machine learning have largely focused on improving the accuracy and efficiency, and many automated techniques are perceived as a black box to the human with little justification or means to intervene in various modelling and training processes. This lack of ability to explain to the human why a certain output was generated has potentially limited the effectiveness and reliability of knowledge-based systems. This is echoed by DARPA’s recent initiative on Explainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI) as well as the growing area of Interactive Machine Learning (IML), which call for a new generation of intelligent systems that are human-centered with explainable models and interactive interfaces enabling the human to understand, engage with, and influence the underlying algorithms. As such, appropriate integrations of user interaction techniques lie at the center of knowledge-based systems, where interactive data representation, data flows, and analytical techniques may provide a necessary meaningful platform for humans to better understand, explore, correct and modify intelligent models. The 1st International Workshop on Intelligence & Interaction in Knowledge Engineering (IIKE) aims to bring researchers interested in interactive and explainable intelligent models, theories, and techniques. IIKE’s goal is to facilitate and accelerate research in all aspects of knowledge engineering for intelligent systems by exchanging ideas, approaches, results, and cross-disciplinary collaboration.

Important dates


Submissions


We solicit submissions of regular, short, demo, and poster papers from diverse backgrounds, with the aim of promoting the exchange of ideas between researchers working in the above-mentioned areas. For full details on the submission format and procedure, please refer to the Submission Instructions page. Papers will be selected based on originality, quality, and ability to promote discussion.

Papers will be submitted to the workshop using EasyChair. All paper submissions will be carefully reviewed by at least three members of the workshop program committee (PC) and reviews will be returned to the author(s) with comments to ensure the high quality of the accepted papers. The authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the workshop. The submissions recommended for acceptance by the PC will be discussed by the organizing committee for final selection.

Accepted papers will be included in the workshops section of the ICSC proceedings. Submissions should contain only original material where copyright of all parts is owned by the authors declared and is not currently under review elsewhere, governed by the IEEE policies. In addition, every paper accepted for publication in the workshops section of the proceedings of ICSC 2019 MUST be presented during the conference. Every paper accepted for IIKE 2019 MUST have attached to it at least one registration at the full member/nonmember rate. Thus, for a paper for which all authors are students, one student author will be required to register at the full registration rate. Failure to do so will result in removal of your paper from the proceedings. The page numbers for regular, concise, industry, and demo/poster papers are limited to 8, 4, 4, and 2, respectively, including all figures, tables, and references. Regular and concise papers allow up to 2 extra pages and short papers up to 1 extra page with $150 per extra page.
