KSEM 2017 : The 10th International Conference on Knowledge Science, Engineering and Management
Conference Series : Knowledge Science, Engineering and Management
Call For Papers
KSEM 2017 will be co-located with the flagship international AI conference — IJCAI 2017, and be held in Melbourne, Australia on August 19-20, 2017.
KSEM 2017 is the tenth in this series, which builds on the success of nine
events of International Conference on Knowledge Science, Engineering and Management
in Guilin, China (KSEM 2006); Melbourne, Australia (KSEM 2007);
Vienna, Austria (KSEM 2009); Belfast, UK (KSEM 2010); Irvine, USA (KSEM 2011);
Dalian, China (KSEM 2013); Sibiu, Romania (KSEM 2014); Chongqing, China (KSEM2015)
and Passau, Germany (KSEM 2016).
The aim of this interdisciplinary conference is to provide a forum for researchers in
the broad areas of knowledge science, knowledge engineering, and knowledge management
to exchange ideas and to report state of the art research results.
