8th International Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Information Retrieval - KDIR 2016, Porto, Portugal

Knowledge Discovery is an interdisciplinary area focusing upon methodologies for identifying valid, novel, potentially useful and meaningful patterns from data, often based on underlying large data sets. A major aspect of Knowledge Discovery is data mining, i.e. applying data analysis and discovery algorithms that produce a particular enumeration of patterns (or models) over the data. Knowledge Discovery also includes the evaluation of patterns and identification of which add to knowledge.

Information retrieval (IR) is concerned with gathering relevant information from unstructured and semantically fuzzy data in texts and other media, searching for information within documents and for metadata about documents, as well as searching relational databases and the Web. Automation of information retrieval enables the reduction of what has been called "information overload".

Information retrieval can be combined with knowledge discovery to create software tools that empower users of decision support systems to better understand and use the knowledge underlying large data sets.

Conference topics include:

  • BioInformatics & Pattern Discovery
  • Business Intelligence Applications
  • Clustering and Classification Methods
  • Collaborative Filtering
  • Concept Mining
  • Context Discovery
  • Data Analytics
  • Data Mining in Electronic Commerce

8th International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Ontology Development – KEOD 2016, Porto, Portugal

Knowledge Engineering (KE) refers to all technical, scientific and social as-pects involved in building, maintaining and using knowledge-based systems. KE is a multidisciplinary field, bringing in concepts and methods from several computer science domains such as artificial intelligence, databases, expert systems, decision support systems and geographic information systems.

Ontology Development (OD) aims at building reusable semantic structures that can be informal vocabularies, catalogues, glossaries as well as more complex finite formal structures representing the entities within a domain and the relationships between those entities. Ontologies, have been gaining interest and acceptance in computational audiences: formal ontologies are a form of software, thus software development methodologies can be adapted to serve ontology development. A wide range of applications is emerging, especially given the current web emphasis, including library science, ontology-enhanced search, e-commerce and business process design.

Conference topics include:

  • Decision Support Systems
  • Domain Analysis and Modelling
  • Enterprise Ontology
  • Expert Systems
  • Human-Machine Cooperation

8th International Conference on Knowledge Management and Information Sharing - KMIS 2016, Porto, Portugal

Knowledge Management (KM) is a discipline concerned with the analysis and technical support of practices used in an organization to identify, create, represent, distribute and enable the adoption and leveraging of good practices embedded in collaborative settings and, in particular, in organisational processes. Effective knowledge management is an increasingly important source of competitive advantage, and a key to the success of contemporary organisations, bolstering the collective expertise of its employees and partners.

Information Sharing (IS) is a term used for a long time in the information technology (IT) lexicon, related to data exchange, communication protocols and technological infrastructures. Although standardization is indeed an essential element for sharing information, IS effectiveness requires going beyond the syntactic nature of IT and delve into the human functions involved in the semantic, pragmatic and social levels of organisational semiotics. The two areas are intertwined as information sharing is the foundation for knowledge management.

Conference topics include:

  • Best Practices & Communities of Practice
  • Business intelligence & CRM
  • Business Process Management
  • Communication, Collaboration and Information Sharing
  • Digital Libraries
  • e-Government
  • E-Learning
  • Enterprise Information Systems
  • Impact Measurement of Knowledge Management

Seafood Safety: New Findings & Innovation Challenges - ECsafeSEAFOOD Final Event, Brussels, Belgium

This is a unique event that marks the end of the ECsafeSEAFOOD project which has assessed food safety issues related to non-regulated contaminants present in seafood as a result of environmental contamination and evaluated their impact on public health.

Seafood has been recognised as a high-quality, healthy and safe food type and is one of the most important food commodities consumed worldwide. However, seafood, like other types of food, can also be a source of harmful environmental contaminants with potential to impact on human health. To address these issues, ECsafeSEAFOOD provides scientific evidence to serve as a basis for further development of seafood safety, public health and environmental policies and measures, by seeking to establish a quantitative link between the contamination of the marine environment and that of seafood.

Conference participants will have the opportunity to exchange knowledge on seafood safety, identify the key issues associated with seafood safety in Europe and discuss strategies to mitigate these risks, debate seafood safety risks and challenges, and network with food safety experts.

Workshop on Clusters, Clouds and Grids for Life Sciences, Madrid, Spain

Today, biomedicine and bioinformatics rely heavily on large scale computational resources, as they typically employ data- and compute-intensive methods. Omics, biomedical imaging and computational models quickly reach data volumes of terabytes and petabytes, data analysis may need teraflops or petaflops of computing power. New challenges arise from complex analysis of distributed heterogeneous data, for example in translational medicine.

Distributed IT-systems such as Grids, Clouds and recently Big Data environments are used for to speed-up large experiments and development time for new algorithms. Distributed systems also allow for better availability of new computational methods for supporting large-scale multi-centric collaborations. However, specific challenges in the employment of such systems for biomedical applications, such as security, reliability and user-friendliness, often impede wide-range adoption of prototype solutions.

This workshop aims at bringing together developers of bioinformatics and biomedical applications and researchers in the field of distributed IT systems. The goals of the workshop are to exchange and discuss existing solutions and latest developments in both fields, in particular for identified gaps and roadblocks. The workshop further intends to collaboratively explore new approaches to successfully apply distributed IT-systems in translational research, clinical intervention, and decision-making.

Contributions are expected but not restricted to the following topics:

  • Detailed application use-cases highlighting achievements and roadblocks
  • Exploitation of distributed IT resources for Life Sciences, health care and research applications, for example medical imaging, disease modelling, bioinformatics, public health informatics, drug discovery, clinical trials
  • Service and/or algorithm design and implementation applicable to medical and bioinformatics applications
