KEOD 2010 : 2nd International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Ontology Development
Conference Series : International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Ontology Development
Call For Papers
KEOD 2010 (International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Ontology Development - http://www.keod.ic3k.org/) has currently an open call for papers, whose deadline is on May 20, 2010. We hope you can participate in this prestigious conference by submitting a paper reflecting your current research.
Organized by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC), KEOD 2010 will be held in Valencia, Spain, next October 25 - 28, and it aims at becoming a top reference for researchers and practitioners in its area.
Knowledge Engineering (KE) refers to all technical, scientific and social aspects involved in building, maintaining and using knowledge-based systems. KE is a multidisciplinary field, bringing in concepts and methods from several computer science domains such as artificial intelligence, databases, expert systems, decision support systems and geographic information systems. From the software development point of view, KE uses principles that are strongly related to software engineering. KE is also related to mathematical logic, as well as strongly involved in cognitive science and socio-cognitive engineering where the knowledge is produced by socio-cognitive aggregates (mainly humans) and is structured according to our understanding of how human reasoning and logic works. Currently, KE is strongly related to the construction of shared knowledge bases or conceptual frameworks, often designated as ontologies.
Ontology Development aims at building reusable semantic structures that can be informal vocabularies, catalogs, glossaries as well as more complex finite formal structures representing the entities within a domain and the relationships between those entities. Ontologies, have been gaining interest and acceptance in computational audiences: formal ontologies are a form of software, thus software development methodologies can be adapted to serve ontology development. A wide range of applications is emerging, especially given the current web emphasis, including library science, ontology-enhanced search, e-commerce and configuration.
This meeting will take place yearly, bringing together top researchers and practitioners in knowledge technologies, especially those related to KEOD main topic areas. The conference is co-located with two related conferences in a joint conference format, namely:
- Knowledge Discovery and Information Retrieval (http://www.kdir.ic3k.org/)
- Knowledge Management and Information Sharing (http://www.kmis.ic3k.org/)
Registration to one conference allows free access to all conferences.
The conference program will include a number of Keynote Lectures delivered by distinguished world-class researchers. Their names will be announced soon at the conference website (http://www.keod.ic3k.org).
Submitted papers will be subject to a double-blind review process. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support.
A short list of presented papers will be selected so that revised and extended versions of these papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in a CCIS Series book.
The proceedings will be indexed by several major international indexes. We are awaiting confirmation of Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index, INSPEC, DBLP and EI.
Best paper awards will be distributed during the conference closing session.
All published papers will be also available at the SciTePress' Digital Library, which will be made available shortly.
Should you have any question please don't hesitate contacting me.
