The KESE2009 Workshop
Aims and Scope
Intelligent systems have been successfully developed in various domains based on techniques and tools from the fields of knowledge engineering and software engineering. Thus, declarative software engineering techniques have been established in many areas, such as knowledge systems, logic programming, constraint programming, and lately in the context of the Semantic Web and business rules.
The fifth workshop on Knowledge Engineering and Software Engineering (KESE 2009) is held at the KI-2009 in Paderborn, Germany, and wants to bring together researchers and practitioners from both fields of software engineering and artificial intelligence. The intention is to give ample space for exchanging latest research results as well as knowledge about practical experience. This year we also encourage to submit tool presentations, i.e., system descriptions that clearly show the interaction between knowledge engineering and software engineering research and practice. The previous KESE Workshops were held at the KI-2008, KI-2007, KI-2006, and KI-2005. See the KESE workshop series page for more information.
The proceedings are online published as CEUR Vol-486.

Call for Tool Presentations
This year we also strongly encourage the submission of tool presentation papers, i.e., system descriptions that clearly show the interaction between knowledge engineering and software engineering research and practice. Such papers could be shorter, and have to be explicitly identified as tool presentation.
Papers should be formatted according to the Springer LNCS guidelines. The length should not exceed 12 pages for regular papers and 6 pages for short papers (including figures and references). All papers must be written in English and submitted in PDF format. Please submit your paper via EasyChair (http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=kese2009).
The submitted papers will be reviewed by at least two members of the program committee. A comfortable time slot for discussions will be given. The proceedings will be published as a technical report, and as CEUR Workshop Proceedings (CEUR-WS.org). Selected papers will be invited to submit to the special issue on Knowledge and Software Engineering for Intelligent Systems to be published in the International Journal of Knowledge Engineering and Data Mining (IJKEDM).
The KESE2009 workshop will take place at the 32nd German AI Conference KI-2009. The important dates are as follows:
|Paper submission deadline:||July 03, 2009|
|Notification of paper acceptance:||July 15, 2009|
|1 page abstract (KI-proceedings):||Aug 2, 2009|
|Camera ready copy (CEUR proceedings):||Aug 14, 2009|
|Workshop:||Sept 15, 2009|
Call for Papers
The official KESE2009 CFP: Call for Papers (3rd)
The one-day workshop will be held with presentations of accepted papers.
A comfortable time slot for discussions will be given.
It is planned to publish the proceedings as a technical report before the workshop, and as CEUR Workshop Proceedings (CEUR-WS.org) later on.
Special Issue: Selected papers will be invited to submit to a special issue on Knowledge and Software Engineering for Intelligent Systems to be published in the International Journal of Knowledge Engineering and Data Mining (IJKEDM).
