Seventh International Workshop on Semantic Computing and Knowledge Creation based on Needs Engineering (SCKNE 2022)


In conjunction with


The 16th  IEEE International Conference on Semantic Computing

January 26-28, 2022 / Hybrid Meeting (personal and remote)





Semantic interoperability, ubiquitous computing, enterprise integration and business convergence by competence sharing are some of the main problems faced in industry today.  All the topics have been addressed in a mono-disciplinary approach, which has the advantage of leading to focused disciplinary progress. However, it also leaves unexplored solutions that can only be achieved upon by collaborators with diverse expertise, coming together in a multi and interdisciplinary approaches. In such a context, this workshop is intended to bring together researchers, practitioners and domain experts, i.e., to share the latest advances in the state of the art and practice for transdisciplinary problem solving with multi-criteria measurement, to address the challenges in needs engineering.  It will provide a unique forum for discussion on integrated frameworks considering business ontologies, IoT understanding, value-based process technologies, big data analysis and architectures, machine learning, deep learning and all legacy dependent systems.
