The conference is devoted to theories, methods and applications of knowledge management and engineering, machine learning, data mining and knowledge discovery in databases. EGC aims at providing a forum for researchers, students and professionals to present research results. It brings together experts from both academia and industry to exchange ideas and discuss future challenges in knowledge extraction and management.

As each year, the EGC conference is open to recent research work and industrial developments in the domain of knowledge extraction and management (please see the EGC 2015 topics). Thus, EGC helps present and discuss both theoretical and applied results.

Several kinds of communications are possible: research studies (published as long, 12-page papers, short, 6-page papers or posters with 2-page abstracts, depending on maturity), software demos (presented in 6-page papers). Papers may be submitted either in French or English (for non-French speakers).
EGC 2015 will also host several thematic workshops.

A best academic paper and a best applied paper award will be granted, as well as a PhD award (separate call pending). Accepted research papers and demos will be published in a special issue of the French RNTI journal. Furthermore, selected accepted papers will be invited to submit an extended version for publication in international postproceedings published by Springer Verlag.

  • Industry track on Big Data Analytics

Big Data Analytics will be the topic of the Industry Track of EGC 2015, which will bring together participants from industry and academia. It will be wholly held in English.

Contributions to the Industry Track should emphasize real-world deployment experiences of applications and projects related to the EGC topics (please see the EGC 2015 topics) with a special focus on Big Data scenarios. Success stories from the deployment of analytical technologies in industry, and concrete lessons learned can be presented. Areas where further research is needed, opportunities for Big Data analytics in industry, success stories from the deployment of tools and applications – every aspect of the practical current and future use of knowledge extraction and management technologies in industry can and should be discussed.

We encourage submissions from industry, but also from academia when there is a clear practical relevance, and especially from academic/industrial collaboration projects. The review process for this track will mainly focus on practical relevance. Submissions can be short (6 pages max.) or long (12 page max.) papers in English only. They must follow the format and guidelines of the main conference.

  • Demonstrations

A special session of software demonstrations and research prototypes will take place in the context of the EGC 2015 conference.

As for the research papers, these demonstrations must conform to the conference topics: knowledge extraction and management (fundamentals, methodologies, emerging domain, applications). Please refer to the list of EGC 2015 topics 

The papers (maximum of 6 pages) presenting these applications will be included in the conference proceedings.

Each accepted submission will be the subject of a quick presentation during the plenary session and of a detailed demonstration during an allocated timeslot with the conference participants.

  • Submissions

Submissions must be anonymous and posted only through the conference’s website. They must be sent in PDF format only and comply with the RNTI LaTeX format. Please visit the submission page to prepare your paper.
