This volume contains the proceedings of the eighth International Joint Conference on Knowledge Discovery, Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management (IC3K 2016) which was sponsored by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC) and held in Porto, Portugal and co-organized by Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (FCT).
IC3K was organized in cooperation with the ACM SIGMIS - ACM Special Interest Group on Management Information Systems, ACM SIGAI - ACM Special Interest Group on Artificial Intelligence, APPIA - Portuguese Association for Artificial Intelligence, APRP – Associação Portuguesa de Reconhecimento de Padrões, Associazione Italiana per l’Intelligenza Artificiale, ERCIM - European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics, AAAI – Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence and the German Society for Computer Science – Special Interest Group on Knowledge Management.
The main objective of IC3K is
to provide a point of contact for scientists, engineers and practitioners interested on the areas of Knowledge Discovery, Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management.
IC3K is composed of three co-located complementary conferences, each specialized in one of the aforementioned main knowledge areas. Namely:
- International Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Information Retrieval (KDIR)
- International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Ontology Development (KEOD)
- International Conference on Knowledge Management and Information Sharing (KMIS)
The International Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Information Retrieval (KDIR) aims to provide a major forum for the scientific and technical advancement of knowledge discovery and information retrieval.
The International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Ontology Development (KEOD) provides a point of contact for scientists, engineers and practitioners interested in the scientific and technical advancement of methodologies and technologies for Knowledge Engineering and Ontology Development both theoretically and in a broad range of application fields.
The goal of the International Conference on Knowledge Management and Information Sharing (KMIS) is to provide a major meeting point for researchers and practitioners interested in the study and application of all perspectives of Knowledge Management and Information Sharing.
The joint conference, IC3K received 211 paper submissions from 48 countries in all continents, of which 18% were accepted as full papers. The high quality of the papers received imposed difficult choices in the review process. To evaluate each submission, a double blind paper review was performed by the Program Committee, whose members are highly qualified independent researchers in the three IC3K Conferences topic areas.
Moreover, the conference also featured a number of keynote lectures delivered by internationally well-known experts, namely Dieter A. Fensel (University Innsbruck, Austria), Frans Coenen (University of Liverpool, United Kingdom), Una-May O'Reilly (MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, United States) and Marijn Janssen (Delft University of Technology, Netherlands), thus contributing to increase the overall quality of the conferences and to provide a deeper understanding of the conferences interest fields.
The IC3K program also includes 2 workshops and 1 doctoral consortium.
To recognize the best submissions and the best student contributions, awards based on the best combined marks of paper reviewing, as assessed by the Program Committee, and the quality of the presentation, as assessed by session chairs at the conference venue, were conferred at the closing session of the conference.
All presented papers will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP, EI (Elsevier Engineering Village Index) and Scopus, as well as being made available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. Additionally, a short list of presented papers will be selected to be expanded into a forthcoming book of IC3K Selected Papers to be published by Springer Verlag.
Building an interesting and successful program for the conference required the dedicated effort of many people. We would like to express our thanks, first of all, to all authors including those whose papers were not included in the program. We would also like to express our gratitude to all members of the Program Committee and auxiliary reviewers, who helped us with their expertise and valuable time. Furthermore, we thank the invited speakers for their invaluable contribution and for taking the time to synthesize and prepare their talks.
Moreover, we thank the workshop chairs whose contribution to the diversity of the program was decisive. Finally, we gratefully acknowledge the professional support of the INSTICC team for all organizational processes.
