From June 5-7, the ICCS2013 took place in Barcelona at the CCIB, a wonderful part of the city with an amazing architecture very close to the sea. On such a wonderful venue, IE member Jaakko Lappalainen, AgroKnow’s CTO Giannis Stoitsis and NCSR-Demokritos researcher Pythagoras Karampiperis organized a new edition of the KREAM workshop. The IE group has been the organizer for four 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 “Automatic experiment repetition using e-Science research infrastructures, ontologies and linked data”, while Giannis presented a keynote “Using Knowledge Representation Models and Metadata to develop e-science applications for the Agricultural Research Community”, and on behalf of Nikos Manouselis “Layered Evaluation of Multi-Criteria Collaborative Filtering for Scientific Paper Recommendation”. On the other hand, Pythagoras gave another keynote titled “Using a POWDER Triple Store for boosting the real-time performance of global agricultural data infrastructures”.
It was very nice for all of us to meet other presenters at the workshop, and hope to meet them again next year!
