The Knowledge Extraction and Management Conference

Date(s) - 21/01/2019 - 25/01/2019



This year the 19th edition of the EGC conference will take place in Metz from January 21 to 25, 2019 on the CentraleSupélec Metz Campus.

The Knowledge Extraction and Management Conference is an annual event bringing together researchers and practitioners from disciplines in the field of data and knowledge science. These disciplines include machine learning, engineering and knowledge representation, data and knowledge reasoning, data mining and analysis, information systems, databases, the semantic web and open data, etc.

The processing and integration of data and knowledge sources constantly raises new needs and challenges in terms of methods, techniques and tools for acquiring data, classifying them, integrating them, representing them, storing them, indexing them, visualizing them, interacting with them, protecting them and especially to transform them into useful, relevant knowledge respectful of our rights.

In addition to the scalability needs of large data collections, there is the need for heterogeneous, variable quality and sometimes very dynamic data processing, ranging from online newspaper articles, to connected sensors, from photo or viral video to the geographical position of our cars, short messages from a microblog to related data from a genomics database, etc.

A major challenge is the development of more transparent data analysis and reasoning algorithms that are able to identify data biases, explain the source of their results, and ensure privacy and equity.

The EGC conference is an opportunity to meet academic and industrial to confront theoretical work and practical applications on real data and to communicate high quality works, exchange and promote the cross fertilization of ideas, through the presentation of recent research, industrial developments and original applications.

EGC 2019’s proceedings, including articles from oral communications as well as those associated with posters, will appear in an issue of the journal RNTI. The authors of the best articles will be invited to submit an extended version of their articles for publication in international post-editions published by Springer.
