EKAW 2014: Diversity in a Heterogeneous World

19th International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management (EKAW 2014).
November 24-28, 2014, Linköping, Sweden.


The 19th International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management is concerned with all aspects of eliciting, acquiring, modeling and managing knowledge, and its role in the construction of knowledge-intensive systems and services for the Semantic Web, knowledge management, e-business, natural language processing, intelligent information integration, personal digital assistance systems, and so forth.

The special focus of this year's EKAW will be on diversity. In the recent past the amount and ease of availability of data has dramatically increased. While scale and complexity of information has always attracted attention, its heterogeneity in nature and usage are only now being investigated more systematically. Data-driven research is gaining increasing visibility in areas such as in eScience or eHumanities, but such distinct fields require diverse knowledge management and acquisition methods. Knowledge in the Cultural Heritage domain radically differs from what is required to run a global company or support projects in the developing world. The geosciences produce and consume data spanning a wide range of formats, topics, perspectives, and sources, and require the integration of such heterogeneous data to foster data sharing, access, retrieval, and reuse, without restricting semantic heterogeneity. EKAW 2014 will put a special emphasis on this diversity of knowledge and its usage.

In addition to the main research track, EKAW 2014 will feature a Tutorial and Workshop Program, as well as a Poster and Demo Track. Moreover, there will be a Doctoral Consortium giving new PhD students a possibility to present their research proposals, and to get feedback on methodological and practical aspects of their planned dissertation.
