(First Call for Papers)

IMCW2014: The "5th International Symposium on Information Management in a Changing World" will take place at the Club Hotel Sera (http://www.clubhotelsera.com.tr/) in Antalya, Turkey, from November 24-26, 2014 (http://imcw2014.bilgiyonetimi.net/).  To commemorate the 2014 Turkish-German Science Year, IMCW2014 is organized in cooperation with Hacettepe University and the Goethe-Institutes in Turkey.

IMCW2014 will be held jointly with the 10th International Conference on Knowledge Management (ICKM2014) at the same venue so that participants will have a chance to attend both events.


The main theme of the Symposium is “Research Data Management and Knowledge Discovery”. It aims to bring together researchers, data scientists, computer engineers, data repository managers, information scientists and information professionals, data librarians and archivists to discuss the issues pertinent to research data management and open data repositories, and to contemplate on how to design and develop innovative and collaborative knowledge discovery and mining services over the research data.


Contributions can be theoretical as well as technical and practical.  Informative case studies are also welcome.

We accept extended abstracts (no less than 750 words) for full papers; short communications, Research in Progress reports, visual presentations (“pecha kuchas”) and posters on all aspects of innovative and collaborative research data management and knowledge discovery. Extended abstracts for student papers and posters are also welcome.  Extended abstracts of PhD students to present the interim findings of their ongoing research will also be considered. Please use the template available on the Symposium web site to prepare your contributions and send them to us using the Conference Management Software (openconf) byMarch 16, 2014.

We also accept proposals to organize workshops.  Proposals should include a title, a short abstract, proposal type, the name and contact information of the convener and be addressed to imcw2014 at gmail.com<mailto:imcw2014 at gmail.com> by March 16, 2014.

We also encourage session proposals. The coordinator of a special session will be responsible for the selection of papers (4-6 papers) and will chair the session.  For session coordinators, registration fee will be waived.

Accepted extended abstracts may be developed as full papers.  A short list of papers will be selected so that the revised and extended versions of these papers and posters will appear in the proceedings book to be published by Springer under its Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) series (decision pending) and the Symposium web site.  Papers that appear in Springer’s CCIS series are indexed in Thomson Reuter’s Conference Proceedings Citation Index.
