Call for Papers KREAM'12

Applied models and knowledge representation in computational science

KREAM is at the
International Conference on Computational Science (ICCS)
Omaha, June 4 - June 6, 2012

The development of ontologies, metadata schemas and other kinds of models that are shared, reused and enriched for computational science tasks is continuously growing. Computational science techniques require, in many cases, models and representations of knowledge for the complex processes supporting research in the different fields, and complex models are also required to capture the research context itself.
The Knowledge representation and applied models and metadata in computational science (KREAM) workshop complements other workshops that are specific to some discipline or technique providing an inter-disciplinary account that emphasizes the role of knowledge representations and ontologies use in computational science contexts, providing opportunities for the transfer of techniques from domains and exposing advanced practices using models that may be reused across different disciplines.
Therefore, suggested topics for the KREAM'12 workshop include, but are not limited to:
- Semantic Sensor Networks for e-science
- Data analysis and models of machine learning from sensor networks
- Analysis & development of knowledge representations.
- Concrete applications of knowledge representations, schemas and models in computational science.
- Design of e-science infrastructure support.
- Evaluation of knowledge representations, models and schemas.

Submissions must be sent through the ICCS system:
A selection of the best papers presented at the workshop will be invited to prepare extended versions for a special issue of the Journal of Universal Computer Science.
