Conference Scope

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.

Topics of Interest

The conference committee invites submissions of applied or theoretical research and
application-oriented papers on all topics of KSEM. Topics include, but are not limited
to the following:

** Knowledge Science **

- Knowledge representation and reasoning

- Reasoning about knowledge in the presence of inconsistency, incompleteness, context-dependency, etc.
- Belief revision and update
- Cognitive foundations of knowledge
- Knowledge in complex systems (e.g. economical and quantum systems)
- Game-theoretical aspects of knowledge; knowledge in multi agent systems
- Formal ontology

** Knowledge Engineering **
