Conf/CfP - 12th International Conference on Flexible Query Answering Systems, UK

Publish Date: Oct 05, 2016

Deadline: Jan 25, 2017

Event Dates: from Jun 21, 2017 12:00 to Jun 23, 2017 12:00


FQAS is the premier conference focusing on the key issue in the information society of providing easy, flexible, and intuitive access to information to everybody. In targeting this issue, the conference draws on several research areas, such as information retrieval, database management, big data, information filtering, knowledge representation, knowledge discovery, analytics, soft computing, management of multimedia information, and human-computer interaction.
The guiding topic of the FQAS conferences are innovative query systems aimed at providing easy, flexible and human-friendly access to information. Such systems are becoming increasingly important also due to the huge and always growing number of users as well as the growing amount of available information. Thus, the works related to the concepts of big data, data streams querying etc. are very welcome The conference provides a unique opportunity for researchers, developers and practitioners to explore new ideas and approaches in a multidisciplinary forum of the representatives of all mentioned research areas.

All accepted papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in their Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) series. Authors are invited to submit original previously unpublished research papers written in English, of up to 12 pages, strictly following the LNCS/LNAI format guidelines. Authors can download the Latex (recommended) or Word templates available at Springer’s web site. Submissions not following the format guidelines will be rejected without review. At least one author of each published paper must register for the conference and present the paper at the conference.
