This book includes the papers presented in the 12th European-Japanese Conference on Information Modelling and Knowledge Bases. The aim of this series of conferences is to provide research communities in Europe and Japan with a forum for the exchange of scientific results and experiences achieved using innovative methods and approaches in computer science and other disciplines, which have a common interest in understanding and solving problems on information modelling and knowledge bases, as well as applying the results of research to practice.
The topics of research in this conference were mainly concentrating on a variety of themes in the domain of theory and practice of information modelling, conceptual modelling, design and specification of information systems, software engineering, databases and knowledge bases. We also aim to recognize and study new areas on modelling and knowledge bases to which more attention should be paid. Therefore philosophy and logic, cognitive science, knowledge management, linguistics and management science are relevant areas too.
