Aim and Scope
Modern intelligent information systems require more and more for advanced knowledge representation, management, and discovery tools and techniques to be implemented within their core layers. This poses new challenges on the issue of devising innovative methodologies and paradigms in the context of a broad umbrella encompassing several research topics ranging from knowledge representation to knowledge integration, from knowledge management to knowledge processing, from knowledge discovery to knowledge delivery, and from knowledge security to privacy preserving knowledge. These argumentations put the basis for a novel class of intelligent systems, the so-called Advanced Knowledge-based Systems, which should be reasonably intended as intelligent information systems where knowledge representation, management, and discovery are emphasized in order to achieve complex functionalities beyond those of traditional information-oriented methodologies.
Advanced Knowledge-based Systems arise in many fields: Advanced Database Management Systems, Advanced Data Warehouse Systems, Complex Data Mining Tools, OLAP Systems, Machine Learning Tools, Data/Information Integration Systems, Enterprise Information Systems, Business Information Systems, Cooperative Information Systems, Collaborative Information Systems, Complex Intelligent Information Systems, Hybrid Information Systems, Workflow Management Systems, Process Mining Systems, Ontology Representation and Management Systems, Web Intelligence Systems, Grid and Web Services Architectures, Data Stream Management Systems, Sensor Network Data Analysis Tools, and so forth.
In all these research fields, despite some recent advancements, various aspects need to be further investigated, among which: formal foundations, knowledge representation methodologies and techniques, knowledge management methodologies and techniques, knowledge integration methodologies and techniques, knowledge processing methodologies and algorithms, knowledge discovery methodologies and algorithms, knowledge pattern extraction methodologies and algorithms, knowledge delivery methodologies and techniques, knowledge security methodologies and techniques, privacy preserving knowledge methodologies and techniques, advanced database management methodologies and algorithms, advanced query languages and techniques, database integration methodologies and techniques, ETL methodologies and algorithms, OLAP data cube computation and query processing techniques, data warehouse integration methodologies and techniques, data mining and machine learning algorithms and techniques, complex data mining techniques (e.g., multi-relational data mining), cooperative information processing methodologies and techniques, collaborative information processing methodologies and techniques, process representation and management methodologies and techniques, ontology representation and management methodologies and techniques, Web/Grid representation and management methodologies and techniques, data stream query languages, data stream information processing methodologies and techniques, and so forth.
Following the success of the (previous) Invited Sessions (i) Advanced Knowledge-based Systems of the 12nd International Conference on Knowledge-based and Intelligent Information & Engineering Systems (KES 2008), held in Zagreb, Croatia, during September 3-5, 2008, (ii) Advanced Knowledge-based Systems of the 13th International Conference on Knowledge-based and Intelligent Information & Engineering Systems (KES 2009), held in Santiago, Chile, during September 28-30, 2009, (iii) Advanced Knowledge-based Systems of the 14th International Conference on Knowledge-based and Intelligent Information & Engineering Systems (KES 2010), held in Cardiff, Wales, UK during September 8-10, 2010, the Invited Session Advanced Knowledge-based Systems of the 15th International Conference on Knowledge-based and Intelligent Information & Engineering Systems (KES 2011), to be held in Kaiserslautern, Germany, during September 12-14, 2011 focuses on these aspects, by posing the emphasis on a theoretical as well as a practical point of view, and provides a forum for researchers and practitioners interested in Advanced Knowledge-based Systems to meet and exchange preliminary ideas and mature results.
