This conference in the city Kaiserlautern in southwestern Germany has attracted lots of attention from both academia and industry. KM (Knowledge Management) as an important topic for both academic research and industrial applications has raised fruitful discussions. KMi was represented by Jianhan Zhu to make a presentation of ESpotter, an adaptive named entity recognition tool for Web browsing and search, and demo the system in the Workshop on IT Tools for Knowledge Management Systems: Applicability, Usability, and Benefits (KMTOOLS). The presentation was well received and the audience made positive comments and showed lots of interest in further collaboration. A vivid discussion about whether Mozart or a computer can be a better composer was witnessed during a concert taking place in the Fruchthalle, Kaiserslautern's "top location".
