The papers in this volume focus on the contributions of the second phase of the ESPRIT programme to the area of knowledge engineering, and more specifically, on the trend towards more disciplined knowledge engineering methodologies. A small number of projects and topics are highlighted, with contributions sourced primarily from those that have established a significant advance in respect of the international state of the art, without losing sight of practical realisability and industrial acceptance. Work on knowledge-level modelling and its use in the following areas is described: (i) structuring the complete life-cycle; (ii) validating expert systems; (iii) knowledge acquisition; (iv) enhancing capabilities; (v) achieving genericity and re-use. The importance and quality of current research is discussed and the need for further advances, if Europe is to increase its share in the information technology market, is outlined.
