Information modelling is becoming more and more important topic for researchers, designers, and users of information systems. The amount and complexity of information itself, the number of abstraction levels of information, and the size of databases and knowledge bases are continuously growing. Conceptual modelling is one of the sub-areas of information modelling. The aim of this conference is to bring together experts from different areas of computer science and other disciplines, who have a common interest in understanding and solving problems on information modelling and knowledge bases, as well as applying the results of research to practice. We also aim to recognize and study new areas on modelling and knowledge bases to which more attention should be paid. Therefore philosophy and logic, cognitive science, knowledge management, linguistics and management science are relevant areas, too. In the conference, there will be three categories of presentations, i.e. full papers, short papers and position papers.

The series of International Conference on Information Modelling and Knowledge Bases originally started as a co-operation initiative between Japan and Finland in 1982. The practical operations were then organized by professor Ohsuga in Japan and professors Hannu Kangassalo and Hannu Jaakkola in Finland. Geographical scope has expanded to cover Europe (European Japanese Conference - EJC) and also other countries (International Conference). Workshop characteristic – discussion, time enough for presentations and limited number of participants (50) / papers (30) – is typical to the conference.

All papers (full/short/position) accepted and  presented in the conference are published in conference preprint by local organizers (distributed in the conference) and after the conference in the conference book. After the conference authors have opportunity to improve their papers based on the discussions and comments. The final publication is published in the  Series of “Frontiers in Artificial Intelligence” by IOS Press (Amsterdam). The books “Information Modelling and Knowledge Bases Vol. n” are edited by the Editing Committee. It has right to propose obligatory improvements as a precondition to the publication in the final  conference print and has right to withdraw papers that do not follow the given guidelines and technical style. In all editorial issues please contact the editing committee chairman  (Hannu Jaakkola).
