[PVS] CfP: Modelling and KM for Sustainable Development (MoKMaSD 2012)



MoKMaSD 2012 - Call for Short Papers
-----------------------------------------------------------------
1st International Symposium on
Modelling and Knowledge Management for Sustainable Development
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Thessaloniki, Greece, 2 October 2012 - Co-located with SEFM 2012
http://mokmasd.iist.unu.edu/

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Short Paper Submission Deadline: 4 July 2012
----------------------------------------------------------------------


CONTEXT & OBJECTIVES

The aim of the Symposium is to bring together practitioners and
researchers from academia, industry, government and non-government
organisations to present research results and exchange experience,
ideas, and solutions for modelling and analysing complex systems
and using knowledge management strategies, technology and systems
in various domain areas, including economy, governance, health,
biology, ecology, climate and poverty reduction, that address
problems of sustainable development.
Papers that present a synergistic approach that integrates
modelling and knowledge management and/or illustrate realistic
applications to sustainable development and make use of techniques
such as simulation, visualisation, animation, nonlinear systems
analysis, model-checking and inferential statistics are especially
welcome.
Authors are invited to submit original research or tool papers on
any relevant topic.  These can either be regular or short papers.
Short papers can discuss new ideas which are at an early stage of
development and which have not yet been thoroughly evaluated.


TOPICS

Modelling methodologies and notations include:
* Systems Dynamics,
* Systems of Differential Equations,
* Game Theory,
* Machine Learning,
* Agent-based Methodologies,
* Process Calculi and Petri Nets,
* Automata-based Notations,
* Rewriting Systems,
* Membrane Systems,
* Cellular Automata,
* Discrete Optimisation Modelling,
* Continuous Optimisation
* Modelling,
* Empirical Modelling,
* Taxonomies and Ontologies.

Application domains include:
* Sustainability Science,
* Integrated Development Planning,
* Evidence-based Policy,
* Governance,
* Enterprise Architecture,
* Ecosystem Science,
* Epidemiology,
* Genetics,
* Population and Reintroduction Biology,
* Climate Change,
* Environmental Risk Assessment and Management,
* Urban Ecology and Smart Cities,
* Agricultural Systems,
* Poverty Reduction.

Synergistic approaches include:

(1) use of modelling methods and notations in a KM context
   to support
   - Knowledge Sharing,
   - System Thinking,
   - Modelling of Products and Services,
   - Population Dynamics,
   - Adaptivity;

(2) development and use of common modelling and KM frameworks
   to explore and understand complex biological, social and
   economic processes and systems such as
   - Ecosystems,
   - Organisations,
   - Individual Capabilities,
   - Business Processes,
   - Evolving City Systems,
   - Information and Knowledge Management Infrastructures,
   - Networks and Networking.


SYMPOSIUM FORMAT, SUBMISSION & PUBLICATION

The one day symposium will feature one invited talk and contributed
paper presentations.
Submission of regular papers, between 12 and 16 pages, is closed.
Submission deadline for short papers, up to 6 pages, is 4 July 2012.
All contributions will undergo a peer-review process.  All papers should
be written in English and be in LNCS format.  Detailed information on
the submission procedure are available at http://mokmasd.iist.unu.edu.

Accepted regular papers and a selection of accepted short papers
will be published after the Symposium by Springer in a volume of
Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS), which will collect
contributions to all workshops and symposia co-located with
SEFM 2012 (http://www.springer.com/lncs).  Authors of short
papers will be informed at the notification date (18 July 2012)
on whether their paper has been selected for inclusion in the 
LNCS proceedings. Condition for inclusion in the Post-proceedings
is that at least one of the co-authors has presented the paper
at the Symposium.  Pre-proceedings will be available online before
the Symposium.

A special issue with selected papers may be planned, depending on
the number and quality of submissions.
