MoKMaSD 2015 aims at bringing together practitioners and researchers from academia, industry and research institutions to present research results and exchange experience, ideas, and solutions for modelling and analysing complex systems and using knowledge management and discovery methodologies in various domain areas such as social systems, ecology, biology, medicine, smart cities, governance, education and social software engineering.

Papers that present a synergistic approach that integrates modelling and knowledge management/discovery or exploit knowledge management and discovery to develop/syntesise system models 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.

Topics of Interest

Methodologies and notations include:
  • Agent-based Methodologies
  • Automata-based Notations
  • Big Data Analytics
  • Cellular Automata
  • Conformance Analysis
  • Constraint Programming
  • Data Mining
  • Differential Equations
  • Empirical Modelling
  • Game Theory
  • Machine Learning
  • Membrane Systems
  • Network Theory and Analysis
  • Ontologies
  • Optimisation Modelling
  • Petri Nets
  • Process Calculi
  • Process Mining
  • Rewriting Systems
  • Spatio-temporal Data Analysis/Mining
  • System Dynamics
  • Text Mining

Application domains include:
  • Biology
  • Business Process Management
  • Climate Change
  • Ecology
  • Education
  • Environmental Risk Assessment and Management
  • Enterprise Architectures
  • Epidemiology
  • Genetics
  • Governance
  • Open Source Software Development and Communities
  • Pharmacology
  • Social Software Engineering
  • Social Systems
  • Sustainable Development
  • Urban Ecology and Smart Cities

Synergistic approaches include:

  1. use of modelling methods and notations in a Knowledge Management context
  2. development and use of common modelling and Knowledge Management frameworks to explore and understand complex systems from the application domains of interest

Paper Submission and Publication

Papers can take one of the following two forms:

Short papers can discuss new ideas which are at an early stage of development and which have not yet been thoroughly evaluated.


Authors are invited to submit their contributions via Easychair. All papers should be written in English and prepared using the specific LNCS templates available at http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html.

The Easychair submission webpage is available at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mokmasd2015

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 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 2015. 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 is under consideration.
