Knowledge Graphs for Semantics-driven Systems Engineering (Workshop@CAiSE24)

Organizer: CAiSE2024
Date/Time: June 04, 2024
Location: Limassol, Cyprus

KG4SDSE Workshop Description

The goal of this workshop is to stimulate research and experience reports on how Knowledge Graphs can add context and flexibility to information systems, compensating for the semantic loss of system design methods or for the logical flaws of large language models, ultimately enabling semantic enrichment and reasoning capabilities in information systems 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 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 enable new flavors of model-driven engineering or low-code engineering -, as well as their interplay with Large Language Models or Machine Learning for systems engineering purposes.

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