KB & KS '93 $@!!(JThe First Announcement
International Conference on Building and Sharing
$@!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(Jof Very Large-Scale Knowledge Bases '93
Dec. 1 (Wed.) - Dec. 2 (Thur.) , 1993
Workshop on Technical Issues (closedd): Building and Sharing
$@!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(Jof Very Large-Scale Knowledge Bases
Dec. 3 (Fri.) - Dec. 4 (Sat.) ,1993
Now is the time for us to make serious efforts to start preparing information
or knowledge infrastructures, which will serve as the foundation for an
advanced and global-scale information-oriented society in the 21st century.
Very Large-Scale Knowledge Bases (VLKB) are the core technology that will be
used to create such infrastructures effectively and to increase their
intelligence. All that is available from information science & technology,
particularly knowledge science & technology and language science & technology,
will be utilized for building and sharing VLKB.
This theme has to be discussed from many aspects, and worldwide consensus must
be reached on the urgent initial move and on the significance of a broad
international cooperation for research and development. This is what the
KB&KS '93 international conference is all about. It will take the form of
a symposium, and every effort should be made to ensure that conferences
following this one will develop into academic conferences, which will take
place in many different countries in the world.
We strongly believe that this conference will be meaningful and fruitful for
those with particular interest in this field. We look forward to your
participation in KB&KS '93 in Tokyo.
