CN’13: International Workshop for database development for knowledge/information management of high-complexity networks
Complex networks, such as energy and water supply networks, play a vital role in communities’ day to day life and development. Monitoring, understanding and optimization of these networks and of the processes related to these has a huge potential for society. It is the communities which can improve their health, as well as their environmental, economic and energy efficiency indicators.
Vital parts of such applications are the database systems and application logic layers, used to model the knowledge of the respective domain. Complex networks applications pose specific challenges to both database development and application development.
Topics of interest
The main goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for practitioners and researchers interested in development of database applications for complex networks, and exchange research and implementation ideas and share the most exciting results. It offers for practitioners and researchers with diverse backgrounds, an opportunity to present research papers, share experiences, and participate in open discussions. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:
- Methods, techniques and best practices for data model development of high complexity networks, such as
o Energy Supply Networks
o Water Supply Networks
o Telecommunication Networks
o Topological Networks
o Logistics Networks
o Transportation Networks
- Methods, techniques and best practices for data model implementation of high complexity networks in relational and NoSQL databases
- Enhancing database applications for complex networks with semantic concepts
- IT-Support for design, evaluation and optimization of complex networks
- Paradigms, methods and technologies for domain knowledge modelling in database applications for complex networks, such as object oriented systems, rule-based systems, ontologies etc.
- Methods, tools and best practices for design and development of flexible applications for complex networks
- Technologies and best practices for robust design, development and effective/efficient management of variants of customizable applications for complex networks
- Design and implementation of semantically aware applications for complex networks
- Technologies and best practices for development of robust, widely adaptable applications for complex networks
- Test/validation tools and methods for complex networks
- Technologies and methods for visualization of complex networks
Technologies and methods for visualization of calculation and optimization results of database applications for complex networks
The workshop is aimed at researchers and practitioners from the domain of database development for complex networks. Attendees familiar with development of NoSQL database and of database applications for complex networks have the opportunity to update and deepen their knowledge and expertise in this area. Attendees less familiar have an ideal opportunity to learn about the approach from world experts in the area, and adopt or adapt the many benefits of the approach.

Author Registration Due: July 16, 2013
All submitted papers will be evaluated by at least three members of the program committee, based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression. Submissions must be in English, and may discuss industrial experience and/or academic research. Papers should not exceed 5,000 words (excluding references and appendices), and should not exceed 10 pages in the final camera-ready format (see later). Papers are normally allocated 45 minutes for presentation. Only electronic submissions in Adobe PDF format are acceptable. The paper submission site will be advised later.
Paper Submission site: http://submissions.onthemove-conferences.org/2013/cn
On the original submission, include a cover page with title of paper as well as the authors’ names, affiliations, phones, faxes, and email addresses. The total number of words in the paper (excluding cover page, tables, and references) should be indicated on the cover page. The second page should begin with the title of the paper followed by author names and affiliations and an abstract of no more than 150 words.
The proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag in their LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) series. The final paper (if accepted) should be formatted using the Springer LNCS style, as described at http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html. Failure to commit to presentation at the workshop automatically excludes a paper from the proceedings.
