          June 3-6, 2014  -  Kiel, Germany

   Deadline for paper submission: January 12, 2014

The series of European Japanese Conference on Information Modelling and
Knowledge Bases (EJC) originally started as a co-operation initiative
between Japan and Finland in 1982. The practical operations were then
organized by professor Setsuo Ohsuga in Japan and professors Hannu
Kangassalo and Hannu Jaakkola in Finland (Nordic countries).
Geographical scope has expanded to cover Europe and also other countries.
Workshop characteristic - discussion, time enough for presentations and
limited number of participants (50) / papers (30) - is typical to the
conference. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

1. Conceptual modelling: Modelling and specification languages;
Domain-specific conceptual modelling; Concepts, concept theories and
ontologies; Conceptual modelling of large and heterogeneous systems;
Conceptual modelling of spatial, temporal and biological data; Methods
for developing, validating and communicating conceptual models.

2. Knowledge and information modelling and discovery: Knowledge
discovery, knowledge representation and knowledge management; Advanced
data mining and analysis methods; Conceptions of knowledge and
information;Modelling information requirements; Intelligent information
systems; Information recognition and information modelling.

3. Linguistic modelling: Models of HCI; Information delivery to users;

systems;Agent concepts and conceptualisation; Hazard prediction,
prevention and steering systems.

EJC (European Japanese Conference on Information Modelling and Knowledge
Bases) is defined as the selection process of the final journal-paper
publication in "Information Modelling and Knowledge Bases" by the EJC
Organization and Program Committee of "International Conference on
Information Modelling and Knowledge Bases" .

The papers selected as journal papers are published in the Series of
"Frontiers in Artificial Intelligence" by IOS Press (Amsterdam) after
the conference for international distributions. The books
"Information Modelling and Knowledge Bases Vol. n" are edited by the
Editing Committee of the conference. Improved papers must be sent by

Working principles of the conference

The authors must present their papers at the conference. The papers are
included in the conference (local) preprint. Only selected papers will
be published in the final journal publication. The final text of the
papers can be polished for publication after the conference.
The final journal papers will be published by an international
publisher (IOS Press, Amsterdam) after the conference.

The total number of participants is limited to
50. The final text of the full and short papers can be polished as
journal papers for publication after the conference. Each of the
position papers are proposed to improve to take into account the
comments in the conference (if any) and the statement of the reviewers.
Programme committee has right to withdraw the paper from the final
journal publication, if the proposed improvements are not implemented or
if the paper is not technically prepared according to the formatting
