IIKE 2018 - The 1st International Workshop on Intelligence & Interaction in Knowledge Engineering
October 1-3, 2018 - Laguna Hills, California, USA

In conjunction with the 1st IEEE International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Knowledge Engineering (AIKE 2018)

Approaching submissions deadlines: August 19, 2018 (23:59 Hawaii Time)

Recent efforts in knowledge engineering and machine learning have largely focused on improving the accuracy and efficiency of reasoning and learning algorithms, where many automated techniques are perceived as a black box to the human with little justification or means to intervene in various stages of the recommendation and decision-making process such as pre- and post-processing. 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 human computer interaction (HCI) techniques lie at the center of knowledge-based systems, where interactive data visualization and analytical techniques may provide a necessary semantically meaningful platform for humans to better understand, explore, correct and modify intelligent models in the decision-making process. 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 that facilitate and accelerate research in all aspects of knowledge engineering for intelligent systems to exchange ideas, approaches, results, and cross-disciplinary collaboration.


Themes of interest include, but are not limited to, the following areas:

	• Interaction in knowledge discovery, representation, acquisition, and integration
	• Human-centered knowledge systems
	• Explanation of reasoning strategies & interactive debugging techniques
	• Knowledge-driven AI Governance
	• Human-centered knowledge discovery, representation, acquisition, and integration
	• Collaborative technologies
	• Policy Models
	• Explainability measures of learning models
	• Transparency and feedback in ML
	• Trust assessment in intelligent system
	• Interactive clustering
	• Applications of deep learning
	• Natural language processing
	• Visual recognition and detection
	• Computational neuroscience
	• Evaluation strategies, models, and approaches
	• Interactive techniques
	• Data and knowledge visualization & visual analytics
	• Cognitive modeling

	• Submission deadline: August 19, 2018 – 23:59 Hawaii Time
	• Notification of acceptance: August 31, 2018 – 23:59 Hawaii Time
	• Camera-ready version due: September 7, 2018 - 23:59 Hawaii Time

We solicit submissions of regular, short, workshop, and poster papers from diverse backgrounds, with the aim of promoting the exchange of ideas between researchers working in the above-mentioned areas.

All submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression. All papers will be refereed by at least three members of the program committee. All submissions must be in English.

All submitted papers must occupy no more than 6 pages for long papers, 4 pages for short papers, or 2 pages for demo/poster papers including the abstract, appendices, and references. Submissions must be laid out according to the final camera-ready formatting instructions and must be submitted in PDF format.

For full details on the submission format and procedure, please refer to the Submission Instructions on http://www.iike.science/ <http://www.iike.science/> 

Accepted papers will be included in the workshops section of the AIKE proceedings.

	• Failure to comply with the formatting instructions for submitted papers will lead to the outright rejection of the paper without review.
	• Failure to commit to registration and presentation at the conference automatically excludes a paper from the proceedings.
