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 twelve-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. 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 honored to announce that the following keynote speakers will bring us exciting insights into several research areas at SKG 2017.

Keynotes (in order of confirmation):

  • Geoffrey Fox, ACM Fellow, Indiana University
    Title: Next Generation IoT and Data-based Grid

  • Jiming Liu, IEEE Fellow, Hong Kong Baptist University, Hong Kong
    Title: Autonomy-Oriented Data Analytics for Comprehending Real-World Complex Systems.

  • Marian Bubak, AGH University of Science and Technology in Poland & University of Amsterdam in The Netherlands
    Title: TBA

  • Xizhao Wang, IEEE Fellow, Shenzhen University
    Title: Learning from big data with uncertainty.

  • Keith W Ross, ACM Fellow, IEEE Fellow, New York University
    Title: Internet Data, Privacy, and Anonymity.

  • Yanchun Zhang, Victoria University
    Title: Smart Medicine: towards computer aided diagnosis via pattern mining on biomedical images.
