FoIKS 2020: Eleventh International Symposium on Foundations of

Information and Knowledge Systems

University of Dortmund, Germany, Feb. 17-21, 2020

Conference website: https://foiks2020.cs.tu-dortmund.de/

Submission link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=foiks2020

Submission deadlines: September 11, 2019 (abstract), September 18, 2019


The FoIKS symposia provide a biennial forum for presenting and

discussing theoretical and applied research on information and knowledge

systems. The goal is to bring together researchers with an interest in

this subject, share research experiences, promote collaboration and

identify new issues and directions for future research.

FoIKS 2020 solicits original contributions dealing with any foundational

aspect of information and knowledge systems. This includes submissions

that apply ideas, theories or methods from specific disciplines to

information and knowledge systems. Examples of such disciplines are

discrete mathematics, logic and algebra, model theory, information

theory, complexity theory, algorithmics and computation, statistics and


The FoIKS symposia are a forum for intense discussions. Speakers will be

given sufficient time to present their ideas and results within the

larger context of their research; furthermore, participants will be

asked to prepare a first response to another contribution in order to

initiate discussion.

*** Suggested topics

The suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

* Database Design: Formal models, dependencies and independencies

* Big Data: Models for data in the Cloud, programming languages for big

data, query processing

updates, consistency preservation, belief revision

* Information Fusion: Heterogeneity, views, schema dominance, multiple

source information merging, reasoning under inconsistency

* Integrity and Constraint Management: Verification, validation,

consistent query answering, information cleaning

foundations of software agents, cooperative agents, formal models of

interactions, negotiations and dialogue, logical models of emotions

* Knowledge Discovery and Information Retrieval: Machine learning, data

mining, formal concept analysis and association rules, text mining,

information extraction

* Knowledge Representation, Reasoning and Planning: Non-monotonic

formalisms, probabilistic and non-probabilistic models of uncertainty,

graphical models and independence, similarity-based reasoning,

* Logics in Databases and AI: Classical and non-classical logics, logic

programming, description logics, spatial and temporal logics,

probability logic, fuzzy logic

* Mathematical Foundations: Discrete structures and algorithms, graphs,

grammars, automata, abstract machines, finite model theory, information

theory, coding theory, complexity theory, randomness

* Security in Information and Knowledge Systems: Identity theft,

privacy, trust, intrusion detection, access control, inference control,

* Semi-Structured Data and XML: Data modelling, data processing, data

compression, data exchange

* Social Computing: Collective intelligence and self-organizing

knowledge, collaborative filtering, computational social choice, Boolean

games, coalition formation, reputation systems

*The Semantic Web and Knowledge Management: Languages, ontologies,

agents, adaption, intelligent algorithms, ontology-based data access

* The WWW: Models of Web databases, Web dynamics, Web services, Web

transactions and negotiations, Social Networks, Web Mining

*** Submission Guidelines

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another

journal or conference. Papers must be typeset using the Springer LaTeX2e

style llncs for Lecture Notes in Computer Science. The suggested number

of pages is 16, and the maximum number of pages is 18. Submissions which

deviate substantially from these guidelines may be rejected without

review. Initial submissions must be in PDF format, but authors should

keep in mind that the LaTeX2e source must be submitted for the final

versions of accepted papers. Submissions in alternate formats, such as

Microsoft Word, cannot be accepted for either initial or final versions.

The submissions will be judged for scientific quality and for

suitability as a basis for broader discussion. Submission is via EasyChair.

Author notification: November 19, 2019

Camera-ready paper due: December 05, 2019
