Scope & Topics

Following the tradition of previous conferences on Knowledge, Information and Creativity Support Systems, KICSS 2016 will cover all aspects of knowledge management, knowledge engineering, intelligent information systems, and creativity in an information technology context, including computational creativity and its cognitive and collaborative aspects. Papers reporting original unpublished research results on theoretical foundations, IT implementations of decision support and expert systems, as well as case studies of successful applications of the above-mentioned ideas in various fields are equally solicited.

KICSS 2016 publishes original research papers and review papers, as well as auxiliary materials such as case studies, technical reports, etc.
