KES 2014 : Knowledge Engineering Systems
Call For Papers
18th International Conference on Knowledge-Based and Intelligent Information & Engineering Systems
15, 16 and 17 September 2014 in Gdynia, Poland
We are pleased to invite participation in KES2014 organized by Gdynia Maritime University in Poland, in conjunction with KES International. The university in which it will take place is located in the port city Gdynia known for its picturesque seashore with marinas, promenades and yacht clubs. However there is more to enjoy nearby, as Gdynia is a part of the Tricity, which also includes a thousand-year-old Gdańsk, Poland’s cultural gem, and Sopot, a health-resort with its beautiful Landscape Park and splendid sandy beaches. The many attractions of the area are easily reached via Gdansk Lech Walesa International Airport, and all three cities are linked by frequent and comfortable commuter lines. Gdynia Maritime University is a specialized technical university and the largest Polish and European Centre for higher maritime education. The University is actively involved in numerous national and European research projects.
The conference will consist of keynote talks, oral and poster presentations, invited sessions and workshops, on the applications and theory of intelligent systems and related areas. It will provide excellent opportunities for the presentation of interesting new research results and discussion about them, leading to knowledge transfer and generation of new ideas.

CALL FOR CONTRIBUTION
CALL FOR PAPERS Contributions are invited from prospective authors with interests in the indicated conference topics and related areas of application. All contributions must be high quality, original and must not have been previously published elsewhere or intended for publication elsewhere. All papers will be reviewed by members of the International Programme Committee and depending on their level and attributes, may be selected for oral or poster presentation, and publication in the conference proceedings. The accepted paper will be published in Elsevier's Procedia Computer Science open access journal, available in ScienceDirect and indexed/abstracted in CPCi (ISI conferences), Engineering Index, and Scopus. Extended versions of selected papers will be considered for publication in periodicals indexed by Web of Science and in the KES Journal.
CALL FOR TRACK/SUBJECT CHAIRS Experienced researchers in the field are invited to chair wide scope tracks covering the various facets of the Intelligent Systems, taking responsibility for overseeing the paper review process within their domain of expertise. Please contact the Conference Secretariat outlining your experience and area of expertise if you would like to contribute as a Subject Chair.
CALL FOR INVITED SESSIONS AND WORKSHOPS We invite researchers on hot topics and fresh ideas in the field to organize invited sessions, or parallel workshops of a half or full day, gathering a minimum of six papers. Please, contact the Conference Secretariat enclosing the title and content of the proposed session, and tentatively involved research teams. We also welcome suggestions for other activities that will appeal to our delegates.
