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.

Topics of Interest
