Methodological knowledge acquisition and knowledge engineering have achievedincreasing attention in recent years due both to active research projects and to successful practical applications. Both aspects have over the years been reflected in the structure of the European Knowledge
Acquisition Workshops (EKAW), where a users' forum has always been combined with a scientific workshop.
This volume contains the proceedings of EKAW-92. The papers are organized into five thematic sectionson:
- Technology transfer
- General modelling approaches
- Knowledgeformalization and automated methods
- Elicitation and diagnosis of human knowledge
- Practice and experiences of knowledge acquisition.
A total of 65 persons from around the world served as the program committee. Their recommendations and sometimes very detailed comments helped both workshop organizers and individual authors to achieve the high quality reflected in this volume.
