9th International Conference on Knowledge Science, Engineering and Management was held at the University of Passau
Aspects of knowledge management from the perspectives of technology and business perspectives were the subject of the 9th International Conference on Knowledge Science, Engineering and Management (KSEM), which took place at the University of Passau in early October. This year’s conference, aimed at specialists from academia and the business world, dealt with topics such as text mining, classification systems, semantic technologies and ontologies, the application of neural networks as well as recommender systems.
Welcoming the conference guests from 15 countries on behalf of the University of Passau, Vice President Ursula Reutner stressed the importance of international collaboration in science, for which Passau’s Chair of Information Systems sets a shining example.
‘We were delighted to receive more than 100 submissions from 28 different countries this year’, reported Professor Franz Lehner, who holds the Chair of Information Systems and organised the conference together with Dr Nora Fteimi. Additionally, two leading scientists – Professor Bernd Krieg Brückner from the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) in Bremen and Professor Eric Tsui from Hong Kong Polytechnic University – gave keynote speeches at the conference. These and the conference’s programme were very well received by the conference audience, among them the founder of KSEM, Professor Ruqian Lu from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing.
