Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 4183)


Efficient and effective Knowledge Acquisition and Sharing are of vital importance for large organizations. Complex human and technical aspects make them a complex issue. In this talk I will describe and discuss requirements, tools and methodologies for Knowledge Acquisition and Sharing in large organizations. I will use examples from the aerospace and automotive domain to describe and discuss real world requirements, including those related to human factors and technical issues. Then I will describe techniques from the field of Human Language Technologies and the Semantic Web that can be used for addressing those requirements. I will then present examples of real world applications developed in the aerospace domain. Finally, I will discuss some future trends.
