Information modeling has become an increasingly important topic for researchers, designers and users of information systems. In the course of the last three decades, information modeling and knowledge bases have become essential, not only with regard to information systems and computer science in an academic context, but also with the use of information technology for business purposes.
This book presents 29 papers selected and upgraded from those delivered at the 25th International Conference on Information Modelling and Knowledge Bases (EJC 2015), held in Maribor, Slovenia, in June 2015. The aim of the conference is to bring together experts from different areas of computer science and other disciplines, including philosophy and logic, cognitive science, knowledge management, linguistics, and management science, with a view to understanding and solving problems and applying research results to practice. Areas covered by the papers include: conceptual modeling; knowledge and information modeling and discovery; linguistic modeling; cross-cultural communication and social computing; environmental modeling and engineering; and multimedia data modeling and systems.
The book will be of interest to all those whose work involves the development or use of information modeling and knowledge bases.
