Knowledge Graphs for Semantics-driven Systems Engineering (Workshop@CAiSE23)

Organizer: CAiSE2023
Date/Time: June 13, 2023
Location: Zaragoza, Spain

KG4SDSE Workshop Description

The goal of this workshop is to stimulate research work about how Knowledge Graphs can add context and flexibility to information systems, enabling semantic enrichment and reasoning capabilities for their operation or engineering processes.

Knowledge Graphs have been primarily investigated as engineered artifacts by themselves – from their underlying formalisms (e.g. description logics), enabling technologies (e.g. RDF, LPG) to their knowledge management and semantic enrichment capabilities.

With this workshop we aim to shift focus from what Knowledge Graphs are or how they can be built towards how they can be relevant to Information Systems engineering. We also aim to investigate their place in the Conceptual Modeling paradigm, specifically how Knowledge Graphs can enable new flavors of model-driven engineering or low-code engineering. Research advances on the interplay between Knowledge Graphs and Machine Learning or Natural Language Processing for systems engineering purposes are also welcome.

Various stages of research maturity can be reported in the workshop contributions - from position and vision papers to experience reports and full research papers.
