Featuring the latest advances in theoretical and applied research, KEPT topics include recent knowledge processing and discovery challenges. KEPT aims to stimulate the interaction among the scientific communities of knowledge engineering, with the purpose of exhibiting interesting applications of these areas both in theory and in practice. In 2009, the event will take place in Cluj Napoca, a traditional academic city in Romania, situated on the middle of Transylvania. KEPT 2009 will be hosted at Babes-Bolyai University in Cluj Napoca, one of the oldest universities in Romania.
