The Seventh Edition of the International Conference on Knowledge Science, Engineering and Management will be hosted in Sibiu (
Situated in the heart of Transylvania, at the foothills of the Carpathians, Sibiu
is one of the most important cultural centres of Romania and one of the most beautiful medieval towns in Transylvania. Due to its cultural richness along with its history, traditional values, architectural and geographical beauty, Sibiu was designated The
European Capital of Culture for the year 2007 and, according to Forbes, it is one of Europe’s „most idyllic places to live.

Today, “Lucian Blaga” University of Sibiu is proud to offer over 15,000 students a wide range of subjects, going from foreign languages to engineering sciences, and from economics to medical sciences. Our goal is to link and interconnect this impressive range of assets to create surplus value in the fields we promote. We are privileged to encourage the wish of knowledge improvement of the new generations and to assist and guide them through this qualitative process.


In accordance with the previous conferences, the KSEM 2014 proceedings will be published by the Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) series. The page limit is 12 pages in Springer LNCS format, including figures and references. The Author guidelines are available at
