Information modeling and knowledge bases have become crucial in recent decades, not only in relation to information systems and computer science for the academic community, but also for the world of business in any area where information technology is applied.

This book presents 15 full papers and 10 short papers edited following presentation and discussion at the 20th European Japanese Conference on Information Modeling and Knowledge Bases (EJC2010). This annual conference constitutes a worldwide forum, drawing together both researchers and practitioners for the exchange of scientific results and experiences in computer science and other related disciplines using innovative methods and progressive approaches.

These papers, selected after a rigorous review process from 34 submissions, cover a wide variety of topics including: the theory of concepts; database semantics; knowledge representation; software engineering; context-based information retrieval; ontological technology; cultural modeling; the management of WWW information, document data and processes; image, temporal and spatial databases, and many others. The book provides a valuable insight into the latest developments in the field, and will be of interest to all those involved in the application of information technology.
