Final Program

The International Conference on Semantics, Knowledge and Grids is a cross-area international forum on semantic computing, knowledge networking, and advanced computing architectures (Grid, Cloud, Web X.0, CPS, Internet of Things, etc.).

The mission of SKG is to promote cross-area research and accelerate the development of relevant areas.

SKG has built its reputation through eleven-year's professional organization. The conference invites well-known experts in diverse areas to present keynotes every year. Submissions come from all over the world. The acceptance rate of regular papers is around 30% every year. In addition to regular papers, the conference will also accept short papers reporting latest research progress or applications.

Semantics, knowledge and Grids represent three streams of understanding humans and the world that humans interact and create. Relevant research concerns all areas of computing, especially web semantics, artificial intelligence, advanced computing infrastructures, and new challenges and technologies (e.g., big data).

We are very honored to announce that the following keynote speakers will bring us exciting insights into several research areas in information and knowledge management at SKG 2016.

  • Professor G. Fox, "Designing and Building an Analytic Library with the Convergence of High Performance Computing and Big Data"

  • Professor D. Talia, "Data Analytics in Clouds"

  • Professor Zhiwei Xu, "Elastic Processors for Deep Learning"

  • Professor H. Zhuge, "Multi-Dimensional Summarisation in Cyber-Physical Society".

We welcome submissions of high quality papers on topics in the general areas of semantic computing, knowledge management, information retrieval, and scalable distributed computing. Inter-disciplinary papers across these areas are of special interest.

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that are not being considered for publication in any other forum. Manuscripts should be submitted electronically, in PDF format and formatted using the CPS camera-ready templates available at: Word Template or Latex template

Papers cannot exceed 8 pages in length. There is also a short paper track. Both short paper and regular paper are invited for presentation.

Please submit papers through
Submission link


Accepted papers including workshop papers, will also be published in the SKG proceedings, together with the main SKG 2016 proceedings. The proceedings will be published by the Conference Publishing Services. Previous proceedings have been indexed in DBLP, IEEE eXplore and in EI Compendex . The conference also will recommend selected papers to SCI-indexed international journals after conference.
