i-KNOW 2016

i-KNOW 2016 aims at advancing research at the intersection of disciplines such as Knowledge Discovery, Semantics, Information Visualization, Visual Analytics, Social (Semantic) and Ubiquitous Computing. The goal of integrating these approaches is to create cognitive computing systems that will enable humans to utilize massive amounts of data. Since 2001, i-KNOW has successfully brought together leading researchers and developers from these fields and attracted over 500 international attendees every year. The international conference is held annually in Graz, Austria and organized by the Know-Center and Graz University of Technology.

Call for Papers

This years Conference Theme will be focusing on Cognitive Computing and Data-Driven Business. In our understanding they represent the technological and business-oriented perspectives on the same phenomenon.

i-KNOW 2016 on the one side, aims at advancing research at the intersection of disciplines such as knowledge discovery, semantics, visual analytics, social (semantic) and ubiquitous computing.
The goal of integrating these approaches is to create cognitive computing systems that will interact naturally with humans, learn from their experiences and generate and evaluate evidence-based hypotheses. That is, we interpret cognitive computing as the convergence of various knowledge technologies research fields. We are specifically interested in the integration of data-centric and user-centric approaches and welcome contributions from both ends of the spectrum.

i-KNOW 2016 on the other side, is interested in examining the application of such cognitive computing technologies in different application domains such as Industrie 4.0, Learning 4.0, Computational Life Sciences and (Open) Science 2.0. Here data-driven business represents the business perspective on cognitive computing and takes application specific knowledge (such as semantics) into account.

This was i-KNOW 2015

Once again, i-KNOW 2015 was a huge success! For the 15th time in a row, the International Conference on Knowledge Technologies and Data-driven Business was organized by Know-Center in co-operation with TU Graz.

Our exceptional keynote speakers Luciano Floridi (University of Oxford), Pablo N. Mendes (IBM Research), Klaus Tochtermann (ZBW, Kiel University) and Sebastian Kozerke (University of Zurich) very impressively demonstrated their approach to Big Data, Science 2.0 and Cognitive Computing.
