The ninth edition of the IC3K (International Joint Conference on Knowledge Discovery, Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management) organized by INSTICC (Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication) will take place from 1 to 3 of November 2017 in Funchal, Madeira in Portugal.

The purpose of the IC3K is to bring together researchers, engineers and practitioners on the areas of Knowledge Discovery, Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management. IC3K is composed of three co-located conferences, each specialized in at least one of the aforementioned main knowledge areas.

-          KDIR - 9th International Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Information Retrieval -

-          KEOD - 9th International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Ontology Development -

-          KMIS - 9th International Conference on Knowledge Management and Information Sharing -

One of the most important contributions that IC3K brings about is the creation of a high-level forum in collaboration with the most prestigious internationally recognized experts who are internationally recognized experts in Knowledge Discovery, Engineering and Management including names such as Prof. Joaquim Filipe from the Polytechnic Institute of Setúbal / INSTICC, Portugal as Conference Chair, Ana Fred (Instituto de Telecomunicações / IST, Portugal) as KDIR Program Chair, David Aveiro  (University of Madeira / Madeira-ITI, Portugal) and Jan Dietz (Delft University of Technology, Netherlands) as KEOD Program Co-chairs and also KMIS Program Co-chairs Kecheng Liu (University of Reading, United Kingdom), Jorge Bernardino (Polytechnic Institute of Coimbra - ISEC, Portugal) and Ana Carolina Salgado (Federal University of Pernambuco, Brazil).

To achieve these goals, INSTICC is committed to integrate and support many activities relevant for the international scientific community, including:

§   Promotion of the mobility of renowned researchers, usually involved as keynote speakers at INSTICC events, so that they can share their knowledge with conference delegates;

§   Providing grants to support the presence of many young researchers from all over the world, especially from regions facing economic difficulties, who wish to attend INSTICC conferences;

§   Publication of proceedings, books and journals - some of them in cooperation with distinguished international publishers - widely indexed and made available at appropriate digital libraries;

§   Sponsorship of research projects, proposed by universities and R&D institutes, related to INSTICC main interest areas;

§   Collaboration with international associations, who may technically co-sponsor INSTICC events, as well as with companies involved in R&D or supporting of the international academic community. 

Over the years, these initiatives have brought together a large and very diversified international community spread over more than 141 countries, including more than 500 high profile keynote speakers, over 15600 specialized reviewers and about 46000 authors.
