Workshop and Top.css[edit]

DEIS focuses on the aspects of dynam.css and evolution in knowledge-based systems and technologies. World changes – so the reflections of the world in information and knowledge representations have to change adequately. Currently the correct and timely changes in knowledge representations and in intelligent knowledge-based systems become increasingly important. Indeed, intelligent systems are used more and more often in different domains, for example in those where intelligent integration of information is an essential requirement – ranging from heterogeneous sensor network data processing through the Web of things to linked data management and use. In those domains the environments of software systems and distributed information artifacts change sporadically and intensively. However, the software components are not adapted and knowledge descriptions are not changed in line with the changes in the World. Typically intelligent software systems and their knowledge are adapted or refined semi-automatically or manually and are available in a sequence of discrete revisions, which results in expanding and amplified distortion between the World and its reflection in intelligent software and knowledge representations. DEIS solicits contributions aiming at bridging the outlined gap – i.e. the solutions that help adapting and refining intelligent systems and their knowledge representations in dynam.css, facilitating to their evolution and resulting in the artifacts that better and more adequately reflect the changes in the World.

Papers accepted by DEIS will be published in a CEUR-WS proceedings volume. This publication channel is chosen to ensure short publication cycle and conformance with the ICTERI preparation schedule.

The workshop aims at bringing together the researchers from different research groups, both academ.css and practitioners, working on the aspects of dynam.css, change, and evolution in software systems and infrastructures built of intelligent components and based on the use of knowledge in its formal representation.

DEIS focuses on dynam.css and change in:

  • Dynamic or Evolving Intelligent Software Components and Systems; and
  • Engineering, Representing, and Managing Dynamic or Evolving Knowledge for Intelligent Software

Keynote Talk[edit]

DEIS will be opened by the keynote talk given by a prominent expert in the community - Prof. Grigoris Antoniou. Grigoris is a Professor at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Crete, Greece, and the Head of the Information Systems Laboratory at the Institute of Computer Science of FORTH in Greece. Prof. Antoniou is an ECCAI Fellow and an active member of the Ontology Dynam.css initiative. He is the co-author of the book “A Semantic Web Primer” . Research interests of Prof. Antoniou are in the field of knowledge and semantic technologies, in particular: how to represent knowledge using logic; and how to automatically deduce conclusions from knowledge. His specialisation is nonmonotonic reasoning, dealing with incomplete and inconsistent information. He is also interested in applying knowledge systems to practical problems, in particular in Electronic Commerce, the World Wide Web (the Semantic Web), and Ambient Intelligence.

Top.css of Interest[edit]

Within Dynamic or Evolving Intelligent Software Components and Systems DEIS invites papers reporting on approaches, concepts, frameworks, solutions for coping with dynam.css and adaptability in intelligent software, in particular for autonomous and decentralized settings. The following top.css are of relevance:

  • Adaptability and dynam.css in (intelligent) grid infrastructures
  • Adaptable or reconfigurable agent-based systems and their interoperability in dynamic environments
  • Dynamically reconfigurable processes and services, their runtime composition and orchestration
  • Dynamic aspects in data warehousing and business intelligence
  • Dynam.css and evolution in cloud computing infrastructures

Within Engineering, Representing, and Managing Dynamic or Evolving Knowledge for Intelligent Software DEIS focuses on the dynam.css and evolution of knowledge representations particularly in, but not limited to, the form of ontologies. The following top.css related to this scope category are of interest:

  • Knowledge evolution frameworks
  • Methodologies for KE and KM with a focus on change, refinement, and lifecycle
  • Knowledge based collaboration, knowledge distribution, and evolution of knowledge
  • Advanced knowledge modeling languages and tools with a focus on representing and reasoning about change
  • Distributed AI, intelligent agents, multi-agent systems for ontology refinement in KE and change management in KM
  • Biologically and socially inspired approaches for coping with the aspects of change and adaptability in machine intelligence

Submission Types and Publication[edit]

Four types of submissions are solicited:

  • Full research papers (up to 15 pages)

The papers in this category are the reports on the accomplished research work. They present a novel method, technique or analysis with appropriate empirical or other type of evaluation as a proof of validity. The main evaluation criteria for this category are originality, technical soundness and the soundness of evaluation.

  • Short research papers (up to 8 pages)

The papers in this category are the short reports of the preliminary results or describing the work in progress. The main evaluation criteria for this category are originality, technical correctness and potential value of the results in a short to mid-term perspective.

  • Discussion, survey, or problem analysis papers (up to 15 pages)

The papers solicited in this category will not present any novel method, technique or approach to solving a problem, but help understand the problem itself. Within the genre we expect receiving reasonable reviews placing a problem onto the state-of-the-art landscape and analyzing how far current solutions fall short. We also expect in-depth discussions and analysis of a certain problem, with clear definitions and argumentation in terms of qualitative or quantitative representation of the main characterist.css of the problem. Papers will be evaluated with respect to how general and technically sound their problem analysis is and how useful it will be for other researchers working on the same problem.

  • Industry experience reports or case studies (up to 15 pages)

The papers reporting on industrial deployments or case studies are solicited in this category. The papers will be evaluated according to the significance and practical relevance of the results as well as with respect to the technical soundness of the described solution and accompanying evaluation or industrial validation.

The papers in all the categories should describe original results that have not been accepted or submitted for publication elsewhere.

All submissions shall be annotated by providing two alternative sets of key phrases:

At least three items have to be provided in each set.

All submissions shall be annotated by providing two alternative sets of key phrases:

At least three have to be provided in each set.

All draft submissions must comply with the Springer LNCS format guidelines: A submission template for MS Word 2003 is also provided at the ICTERI web site for your convenience:

All submissions will be evaluated by at least three members of the international program committee. Accepted papers will be published as CEUR-WS proceedings ( Depending on the quality of submissions, the best selected papers will be invited to be published in extended versions in a Special Issue of an International Journal.
