KSEM is an international conference for research on knowledge science, engineering and management, which attracts high quality,
state-of-the-art research papers from all over the world. The conference provides a forum for researchers, practitioners and developers
to present original work, to share their views, to exchange ideas and to develop new insights into KSEM-related areas.
KSEM2010 will be held in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and is the fourth in the conference series, following three successful
events in Guilin, China (KSEM'06), Melbourne, Australia (KSEM'07) and Vienna, Austria (KSEM09). You are invited to submit papers that are
original and not yet published. The topics of interest include but are not limited to:
*Special sessions
Theory and Practice of Ontology for the Semantic Web
Application of Data Mining to Seismic Data Analysis for Earthquake Study
*Knowledge science
Knowledge representation and reasoning
Logics of knowledge
Formal analysis of knowledge
Knowledge complexity and knowledge metrics
Reasoning about knowledge in the presence of inconsistency, incompleteness, context-dependency
