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

1st Workshop KG4SDSE at CAiSE2023

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

Organizer: CAiSE2023
Date/Time: June 12 - 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.

Relevant topics

  • Information Systems engineering methods based on Knowledge Graphs
  • Application scenarios for Knowledge Graphs
  • Knowledge Graphs as mediators between data, stakeholders and software
  • Knowledge Graphs for model-driven engineering
  • Linking, transforming or augmenting domain-specific models with Knowledge Graphs
  • Knowledge Graphs informed by system theories and system engineering conceptualizations
  • Machine reasoning for Information Systems engineering
  • The convergence of Deep Learning, Knowledge Graphs and systems engineering
  • Knowledge Graph embeddings and graph neural networks
  • Requirements engineering based on Knowledge Graphs
  • System design and analysis augmented by Knowledge Graphs
  • Knowledge Graphs for Digital Twins and digital-first artifacts

  • Submission Guidelines

    Submission link (pick the KG4SDSE workshop from the tracks listed there):

    We invite two types of paper contributions:
  • Full papers which can be regular research or experience papers (12 pages)
  • Short papers which can be position or vision papers (6 pages)

  • Since we plan have the accepted papers in CAiSE’s LNBIP volume for workshops, formatting must comply with the Springer proceedings guidelines available at (both Word and Latex templates are available there).

    All accepted papers will have to be presented in person by one registered author. Accepted papers that will not presented will be removed from the workshop proceedings.
