MoKMaSD 2015

MoKMaSD 2015 aims at bringing together practitioners and researchers from academia, industry and research institutions to present research results and exchange experience, ideas, and solutions for modelling and analysing complex systems and using knowledge management and discovery methodologies in various domain areas such as social systems, ecology, biology, medicine, smart cities, governance, education and social software engineering.

Papers that present a synergistic approach that integrates modelling and knowledge management/discovery or exploit knowledge management and discovery to develop/syntesise system models are especially welcome.

Authors are invited to submit original research or tool papers on any relevant topic. These can either be normal 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.


Methodologies and notations include:
Agent-based Methodologies
Automata-based Notations
Big Data Analytics
Cellular Automata
Conformance Analysis
Constraint Programming
Data Mining
Differential Equations
Empirical Modelling
Game Theory
Machine Learning
Membrane Systems
Network Theory and Analysis
Optimisation Modelling
Petri Nets
Process Calculi
Process Mining
Rewriting Systems
Spatio-temporal Data Analysis/Mining
System Dynamics
Text Mining
Application domains include:
Business Process Management
Climate Change
Environmental Risk Assessment and Management
Enterprise Architectures
Open Source Software Development and Communities
Social Software Engineering
Social Systems
Sustainable Development
Urban Ecology and Smart Cities
Synergistic approaches include:

use of modelling methods and notations in a Knowledge Management context
development and use of common modelling and Knowledge Management frameworks to explore and understand complex systems from the application domains of interest

Abstract submission Deadline: 15 May 2015
Paper submission Deadline: 22 May 2015
Notification to Authors: 19 June 2015
Pre-proceedings Final Version due: 3 July 2015
Symposium: 8 September 2015
Post-Proceedings Final Version due: 25 September 2015


Papers can take one of the following two forms:

Regular (research, tool or position) paper, up to 15 pages
Short (research, tool or position) paper, up to 6 pages
Short papers can discuss new ideas which are at an early stage of development and which have not yet been thoroughly evaluated.

Authors are invited to submit their contributions via Easychair. All papers should be written in English and prepared using the specific LNCS templates available at

The Easychair submission webpage is available at

Each paper will be reviewed by three Program Committee members. Notification and reviews will be communicated via email through the Easychair platform.


Accepted papers will be included in the Symposium programme and will appear in the symposium pre-proceedings. Pre-proceedings will be available online before the Symposium.

Revised versions of accepted papers will be published after the Symposium by Springer in a volume of Lecture Notes in Computer Science ( ), which will collect contributions to some workshops and symposia co-located with SEFM 2015. Condition for inclusion in the post-proceedings is that at least one of the co-authors has presented the paper at the Symposium.

A special issue of some international journal with selected papers is under consideration.
