MoKMaSD 2014 aims at bringing 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 such as ecology, biology, medicine, climate, governance, education and social software engineering.
Papers that present a synergistic approach that integrates modelling and
knowledge management/discovery or exploit knowledge management/discovery
to develop/syntesise system models are especially welcome.
Topics of Interest
Methodologies and notations include:
Big Data Analytics
Network Theory and Analysis
Spatio-temporal Data Analysis/Mining
Application domains include:
Business Process Management
Environmental Risk Assessment and Management
Social Software Engineering
Urban Ecology and Smart Cities
Synergistic approaches include:
use of modelling methods and notations in a Knowledge Management context
development and use of common modelling and Knowledge Management frameworks to explore and understand complex systems from the application domains of interest
Paper are expected to be of one of the following two kinds:
SYSTEMS, aiming at illustrating realistic applications of modelling and/or knowledge management and discovery techniques such as simulation, visualisation, animation, nonlinear systems analysis, model-checking, inferential statistics, data/text/process mining;
DOMAINS, aiming at presenting ideas, conceptual results, case studies and tools in one of the domain areas listed above in relation to the possible use of modelling and/or knowledge management/discovery methodologies.
Moreover, papers (of both SYSTEMS and DOMAINS kinds) can take one of the following two forms:
Regular (research or position) paper, between 12 and 16 pages
Short (research or position) paper, up to 6 pages
Short papers can discuss new ideas which are at an early stage of development and which have not yet been thoroughly evaluated.
Each paper will be reviewed by three Program Committee members. Notification and reviews will be communicated via email through the Easychair platform.
Accepted papers will be included in the Symposium programme and will appear in the symposium pre-proceedings. Pre-proceedings will be available online before the Symposium.
Revised versions of accepted regular papers and of a selection of accepted short papers will be published after the Symposium by Springer in a volume of Lecture Notes in Computer Science ( http://www.springer.com/lncs ), which will collect contributions to some workshops and symposia co-located with SEFM 2014. Condition for inclusion in the post-proceedings is that at least one of the co-authors has presented the paper at the Symposium.
A special issue of some international journal with selected papers may be planned, depending on the number and quality of submissions.
