Following the tradition of previous conferences on Knowledge, Information and Creativity Support Systems, KICSS 2014 will cover all aspects of knowledge management, knowledge engineering, intelligent information systems, and creativity in an information technology context, including computational creativity and its cognitive and collaborative aspects. Papers reporting original unpublished research results on theoretical foundations, IT implementations of decision support and expert systems, as well as case studies of successful applications of the above- mentioned ideas in various fields are equally solicited.
The list of conference topics includes but is not limited to: Anticipatory networks, systems, and decisions Autonomous creative systems Cognitive foundations of knowledge Cognitive and psychological issues in creativity research Cognitive foundations of knowledge Collaborative activities in Living Labs Collaborative idea generation and creativity Collaborative knowledge creation Collaborative working environments fostering creativity Complex system modelling Computer supported creativity Creative approaches to model technological evolution Creative business models Creative conflict resolution Creative coordination and cooperation mechanisms Creative decision processes Creative interaction techniques Creative model building Creative reasoning and decision making Creative research environments and their performance Creative social computing Creative visualisation of data and knowledge Creativity in finance Creativity in augmented reality Creativity in health care Creativity in mobile applications Creativity in social media Creativity in the Cloud Creativity measurement Creativity support systems Creativity transfer and stimulation Creativity vs. rationality Creativity-enhancing interfaces Creativity-oriented information system architectures Decision sciences Decision support systems (DSS) Discovering opportunities, threats and challenges Foresight support systems (FSS) Future Internet and knowledge-based society Future exploration and modelling Future perspectives of knowledge, information, and creativity support Game-theoretical aspects of knowledge General creative systems (GCS) Group recommendation, and advise Heuristics and general problem solving Identifying real options in complex business environments Information fusion Information quality Intelligent analysis of Big Data Knowledge extraction, creation, and acquisition Knowledge in multi-agent systems Knowledge integration Knowledge management in business, industry, and administration Knowledge representation and reasoning Knowledge verification and validation Living Lab support systems (LLSS) Machine learning and creativity Malicious creativity in the web, its discovery and remedy Mathematical models of creative processes Multi- and interdisciplinary approaches in creativity research Multicriteria decision making Natural language analysis Non-monotonic reasoning Ontology creation and management Open innovation Organizational learning Preference modelling Reasoning about knowledge Recommender systems Scientific information management Search for a compromise in multicriteria decision making and collaborative games Social Computing Social factors of collaborative creativity Software-based stimulation of creativity Supervised and semi-supervised learning Trust modeling Uncertainty modelling Virtual environment design Visual Analytics and Intelligent User Interfaces Web intelligence tools World models
Important Dates Paper Submission Deadline: June 20, 2014 Notification of Acceptance: August 8, 2014 Camera-Ready Version Due: September 8, 2014 Research-in-Progress Report Submission Deadline: September 5, 2014 Research-in-Progress Reports Author Notification Due: September 12, 2014 Research-in-Progress Reports Camera-Ready Versions Due: September 19, 2014
Submission Regular papers on all conference topics should be formatted according to the Springer CS Proceedings (LNCS) format and should not exceed 12 pages. Short and industrial/demo papers as well as research-in-progress reports should not exceed 6 pages according to the above format. Up to 2 additional pages may be allowed at extra charge. The KICSS 2014 papers can be submitted via Easychair. Submissions that overlap substantially with any other papers printed, submitted, or accepted for publication or presentation elsewhere are not allowed. Special session proposals may be submitted by email to the KICSS Organizing Committee. Although there is no formal template for such a proposal, the proposers should nevertheless specify the title of the session, describe briefly its essential content and relation to the conference topics, and specify the expected number of contributions, and titles, if already known.
Proceedings The KICSS 2014 (Post-) Proceedings will be published in the Springer Series: Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing, ISSN 2194-5357, indexed by ISI Proceedings, SCOPUS, Zentralblatt Math, Ulrich's, EI-Compendex, DBLP, MetaPress, Springerlink, see more here. The Post-Proceedings will contain all the revised regular papers and - following an extension - a selection of research-in-progress reports as well as short and demo papers. The authors of the selected best papers presented at the conference will be invited to submit the revised and extended versions of their contributions to special issues of high-rank scientific journals.
