Not much as far as broad philosophy is concerned,except that Advaita uses more Vedantic methods of self exploration and Kashmir Shavisim uses Tantric methods.For an outsider though,Smartism(Advaita) is not much different than polished vedantic shaivism.Again,Buddhist also have similar(but not same) non-dualistic philosophy and perhaps owing to their geographical and culture proximity have similar methods to becoming (no)self-aware.

I thought so too, I don't really see any differences between the two.

Sb at your service. My father was born and raised in Srinagar (Capital) Kashmir. Althought I don't know much about Kashmiri Shaivism ,I am half kashmiri and I have a Kashmiri last name just like my entire family. I can ask my father if you have any questions I am unable to answer so shoot away.

Cool!

Could you ask him what the difference between Kashmir Shavisim and Advaita Vedanta are?

Well from my understanding the difference between Kashmir Shaivism and Advaita Vendanta is their understanding of the manifest world. Advaita considers the manifest world unreal. The world is a projection of Shiva in KS so therefore the world is real. Advaita states that only Brahman is real so if the world is created by Brahman how can it not be real? Or maybe I'm not fully understanding something here.
