Two weeks ago, IE members Jaakko Lappalainen, Leonardo Lezcano and Miguel Angel Sicilia crossed the ocean and arrived at the Eppley Airfield in Omaha, Nebraska to attend the twelfth edition of the International Conference on Computational Science (ICCS’12). The IE group has been the organizer for three years of the KREAM workshop in the ICCS conference. The Knowledge REpresentation and Applied Models and Metadata in computational science (KREAM) workshop aims at gathering high quality research results about the use of knowledge representations, schemas and models in computational science for concrete applications, the design of e-science infrastructure support or papers dealing with the analysis, development or evaluation of the representations themselves.
As part of the workshop, Jaakko presented a research work titled “Modeling the Semantics of Contextual and Content-specific Research Metadata using Ontology Languages: issues on combining CERIF and OWL” and Leonardo did the same with “Contrasting Knowledge Organization Systems for the description of research products: the case of overlapping in the agricultural domain”
It was a pleasure to meet once again our colleague Nikos Korfiatis, who gave a presentation titled “Computational Science in Perspective: How can we assess a conference based on individual participation”
Also, it was a magnific oportunity for the IE group to visit the operational headquarters of Gallup, Inc.
Below, some photos of the trip:
