Conference Scope

The 12th International Conference on Knowledge Science, Engineering and Management (KSEM 2019) will be held in Athens, Greece on August 28-30, 2019.

KSEM 2019 is the twelfth in this series, which builds on the success of eleven previous events of the International Conference on Knowledge Science, Engineering and Management in Guilin, China (2006); Melbourne, Australia (2007); Vienna, Austria (2009); Belfast, UK (2010); Irvine, USA (2011); Dalian, China (2013); Sibiu, Romania (2014); Chongqing, China (2015); Passau, Germany (2016); Melbourne, Australia (2017); and Changchun, China (2018).

The aim of this interdisciplinary conference is to provide a forum for researchers in the broad areas of knowledge science, knowledge engineering, and knowledge management to exchange ideas and to report state-of-the-art research results.

*** Scholarships will be provided by EurAI and the Hellenic AI Society (EETN)!  ***

ACAI provides a wide range of state-of-the-art courses given by some of the most prominent researchers in the area.

A typical course is broad enough to provide a general introduction to the chosen topic, whilst also students can learn the most relevant contributions in depth. This year, the School offers a well-balanced tutorial curriculum, 

which covers many important AI topics with application in multi-agent worldssuch as AI Ethics, Machine Learning/Deep Learning, Logic, Robotics, Game Theory, AI for Digital Games, and more.


ACAI-2019 is co-organized by:
