The K-CAP 2007 Program Committee invites proposals for the Workshop 
Program for K-CAP 2007. Workshops will be held on Sunday, October 28th, 
the day before the regular conference technical sessions begin, at the 
conference hotel in Whistler, BC, Canada.

K-CAP workshops provide an informal setting where workshop participants 
have the opportunity to discuss specific technical topics in an 
atmosphere that fosters the active exchange of ideas. Our aim for the 
workshop program is to promote and collect multidisciplinary research 
directions that contribute to knowledge capture from a variety of 
sources. Members from all research areas related to knowledge capture 
are invited to submit workshop proposals. We particularly welcome 
workshops at discipline boundaries.

To encourage interaction and a broad exchange of ideas, each workshop 
will be limited to 30 participants and ample time will be allotted for 
general discussion.
