Knowledge Engineering (KE) refers to all technical, scientific and social as-pects involved in building, maintaining and using knowledge-based systems. KE is a multidisciplinary field, bringing in concepts and methods from several computer science domains such as artificial intelligence, databases, expert systems, decision support systems and geographic information systems.
Ontology Development (OD) aims at building reusable semantic structures that can be informal vocabularies, catalogs, glossaries as well as more complex finite formal structures representing the entities within a domain and the relationships between those entities. Ontologies, have been gaining interest and acceptance in computational audiences: formal ontologies are a form of software, thus software development methodologies can be adapted to serve ontology development. A wide range of applications is emerging, especially given the current web emphasis, including library science, ontology-enhanced search, e-commerce and business process design.

KEOD is interested in promoting high quality research as it can be confirmed by last year acceptance rates, where from 136 submissions, 11% were accepted as full papers. Additionally, 24% were presented as short papers and 22% as posters.

The IC3K program features a number of Keynote Lectures to be delivered by distinguished world-class researchers, namely:
- Daniel O'Leary, University of Southern California, United States
(list not yet complete)

Submitted papers will be subject to a double-blind review process. All accepted papers (full, short and posters) will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support. BCIN
A short list of presented papers will be selected so that revised and extended versions of these papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in a CCIS Series book.
Additionally, a short list of papers presented at the conference, will also be selected for publication in a special issue of the Wiley Journal "Intelligent Systems in Accounting, Finance and Management".

The proceedings will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP and EI (Elsevier Index).
All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SciTePress Digital Library (http://www.scitepress.org/DigitalLibrary/). SciTePress is member of CrossRef (http://www.crossref.org/).

Best paper awards will be distributed during the conference closing session. Please check the website for further information  (http://www.keod.ic3k.org/BestPaperAward.aspx).

Workshops, special sessions, tutorials as well as demonstrations dedicated to other technical/scientific topics are also envisaged: companies interested in presenting their products/methodologies or researchers interested in holding a tutorial are invited to contact the conference secretariat. Workshop Chairs and Special Session Chairs will benefit from logistics support and other types of support, including secretariat and financial support, to facilitate the development of a valid idea.

KEOD 2012 is co-located with two related conferences in a joint conference (IC3K - http://www.ic3k.org/) format, namely:
- Knowledge Discovery and Information Retrieval (http://www.kdir.ic3k.org/)
- Knowledge Management and Information Sharing (http://www.kmis.ic3k.org/)
Registration to one conference allows free access to all conferences.

We hope to welcome you in Barcelona, Spain next October, 2012!
Should you have any question please don't hesitate contacting me.
