Data and Knowledge Management

(versão PT)

Motivation and Goals

Digital data storage is nowadays a common practice. Besides being vital to organizations and individuals, the existing amount of digital data has significantly increased, and even further growth is expected in the near future. Therefore, there is no doubt about the importance of effectively, efficiently, and safely managing all digitally stored information.

This fact has led to the appearance of several scientific research disciplines that concern with problems arising from the need for electronic data management and processing. Similarly to international forums such as the ACM International Conference on Information and Knowledge Management, this track aims at joining, in a single event, several communities, such as those of researchers and professionals in the areas of Databases, Data Mining, Information Retrieval, Knowledge Management, Natural Language Processing and Ontologies, whose scientific work can be complementary in solving currently important problems.

This INForum track aims to present and disseminate research studies coming from different fields related with data and knowledge management.
