Over the past few years a number of different methodologies and machine learning techniques have been proposed by researchers for the purposes of developing efficient knowledge-based systems to perform a range of different tasks. These systems are based on artificial intelligence methodologies, concepts and theories. There are many such systems  in existence today, which are applied to areas including health care , business, commerce and education.
The objective of this mini track is to bring together researchers engaged in knowledge engineering and knowledge computing methodologies.
This track welcomes theoretical and empirical contributions focusing on, without being limited to, the following topics:

  • Ontological Engineering
  • Knowledge Computing
  • Machine Learning
  • Knowledge-Based Systems
