Symposium Programme now available.


The aim of the Symposium is to bring together practitioners and researchers from academia, industry, government and non-government organisations to present research results and exchange experience, ideas, and solutions for modelling and analysing complex systems and using knowledge management strategies, technology and systems in various domain areas, including economy, governance, health, biology, ecology, climate and poverty reduction, that address problems of sustainable development. Papers that present a synergistic approach that integrates modelling and knowledge management and/or illustrate realistic applications to sustainable development and make use of techniques such as simulation, visualisation, animation, nonlinear systems analysis, model-checking and inferential statistics are especially welcome.

Authors are invited to submit original research or tool papers on any relevant topic. These can either be normal or short papers. Short papers can discuss new ideas which are at an early stage of development and which have not yet been thoroughly evaluated.



Modelling methodologies and notations include:

System Dynamics
Systems of Differential Equations
Game Theory
Machine Learning
Agent-based Methodologies
Process Calculi and Petri Nets
Automata-based Notations
Rewriting Systems
Membrane Systems
Cellular Automata
Discrete Optimisation Modelling
Continuous Optimisation Modelling
Empirical Modelling
Taxonomies and Ontologies

Application domains include:

Sustainability Science
Integrated Development Planning
Evidence-based Policy
Enterprise Architecture
Ecosystem Science
Population and Reintroduction Biology
Climate Change
Environmental Risk Assessment and Management
Urban Ecology and Smart Cities
Agricultural Systems
Poverty Reduction

Synergistic approaches include

(1) use of modelling methods and notations in a KM context to support

Knowledge Sharing                 System Thinking                 Modelling of Products and Services

Population Dynamics                 Adaptivity

(2) development and use of common modelling and KM frameworks to explore and understand
complex biological, social or economic processes and systems such as

Ecosystems                 Organisations                 Individual Capabilities                 Business Processes

Evolving City Systems                 Information and Knowledge Management Infrastructures                 Networks and Networking


Important Dates
Paper Submission deadline:   20 June 2012 (CLOSED)
Accept/Reject Notification:   18 July 2012 (CLOSED)
Pre-proceedings Final version due:   8 September 2012 (CLOSED)
Post-proceedings Final version due:   20 October 2012

Workshop Format and Submission

The one day symposium will feature one invited talk and contributed paper presentations. All contributions in the form of either full technical papers, between 12 and 16 pages, or short position papers, up to 6 pages, will undergo a peer-review process.

All papers should be written in English and prepared using the specific LNCS templates available at http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html.

Papers must be submitted electronically through Easychair



Accepted regular papers and a selection of accepted short papers will be published after the Symposium by Springer in a volume of Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS), which will collect contributions to all workshops and symposia co-located with SEFM 2012 (http://www.springer.com/lncs). Condition for inclusion in the post-proceedings is that at least one of the co-authors has presented the paper at the Symposium. Pre-proceedings will be available online before the Symposium.

A special issue with selected papers may be planned, depending on the number and quality of submissions.
