Knowledge Discovery and Management Research Group brings together a group of researchers and research students working on a range of problems related to discovering, codifying, structuring, sharing and utilizing knowledge in contemporary organisational settings. Our research is both theoretical as well as applied and draws on emerging developments in areas such as knowledge discovery and data/text/web mining, ontologies and semantic web, social network analysis, and Economics of Information Technologies. Much of the research is at the intersection of Computer Science and Information Systems. The primary research themes are:
We also work with the centre for Distributed and High Performance Computing, http://sydney.edu.au/distributed_computing/, on the theme, "Service Computing".
Pascal Hitzler is Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio, U.S.A.

Information Technology is a fundamental enabler of today’s service economy. There is also a growing recognition of the critical role of digital service innovation in improving productivity levels and quality of life. Further technological paradigms such as web services, the internet of things, cloud computing, social computing, and engagement platforms are redefining the landscape of service. This has brought increased policy and research focus to the conceptualisation, design, delivery, and evaluation of service systems.
The fifth Australasian Symposium on Service Research and Innovation will bring together a cross-disciplinary group of researchers and practitioners who are engaged in research and development in the area of service, broadly defined. It will feature keynote addresses and invited lectures by prominent researchers in the field. There will also be paper sessions to which researchers are invited to submit their recent work. A public sector and industry forum featuring some of the academic researchers and practitioners in industry and government will also be a part of the symposium. The symposium is expected to provide a forum for analyzing and assessing the progress achieved in pursuit of this goal and to explore the foundations of and emerging directions in service research.
The symposium is sponsored by the Service Science Society of Australia. This is the apex national body representing the services research community of Australia. It seeks to promote the understanding and use of service science in government, industry and academia. The Australasian Symposium on Service Research and Innovation series also serves as its annual meeting.
PAPER SUBMISSION, SYMPOSIUM PUBLICATIONS, AND BEST PAPER AWARDS
Paper submissions should be limited to a maximum of 15 pages in the Springer LNBIP format (see link), and will be reviewed by the Program Committee on the basis of overall quality, relevance to service research, originality, significance, and clarity. Please submit papers through EasyChair. The proceedings will be published by Springer under the Business Information Processing (LNBIP) series. Selected papers will be fast-tracked for publication in a services research journal of good standing (in revised and expanded form).
Two best paper awards will be presented to the authors of (1) the best research paper and (2) the best student paper. The selection of the best papers will be made by the Program Committee Chairs in consultation with the Program Committee members based on the overall quality and contribution.

The relentless growth in Internet functionality and broadband access has enabled a new wave of innovations that are transforming the way people and organisations interact, communicate, and collaborate. The third Australasian Web Conference (AWC) is part of the Australasian Computer Science Week (ACSW) and focuses on presenting original contributions on research, development, and applications, related to all fields of Web research. AWC 2015 invites submissions dealing with all areas of Web research, including but not limited to the following:
Prof. Joseph Davis will serve as the conference chair.

With the increasingly dominant role that the service sector plays in both developed and emerging economies, the conceptualisation, design, delivery, and evaluation of service systems have attracted significant research attention and policy focus. There is also a growing recognition of the critical role of service innovation in improving productivity levels and quality of life. The transition from the manufacturing and goods-based orientation to more of a service-dominant logic has gathered momentum in recent years. Information and communication technologies (ICT) play a central role in the design and delivery of service systems. Internet and World Wide Web-related developments such as web 2.0, semantic web, cloud infrastructure, and service-oriented computing and web services, social computing, and (internet-based) human computation are just a few of the technological advances that are helping to redefine the landscape of service systems.
The Service Science Society of Australia is the apex national body representing the services research community of Australia. It seeks to promote the understanding and use of service science in government, industry and academia. The Australasian Symposium on Service Research and Innovation series serves as its annual meeting.
The second Australasian Symposium on Service Research and Innovation will bring together a cross-disciplinary group of researchers and practitioners who are engaged in research and development in the area of services, broadly defined. It will feature keynote addresses and invited lectures by prominent researchers in the field. There will also be contributed paper sessions as well as a forum for PhD students to present their service-related thesis research. An industry forum featuring a few of the key players in industry and government will also be a part of the symposium.
Researchers and research students who work on service-related topics are invited to submit a two-page abstract of their paper to both program chairs (see contact details in next section). The deadline for submission will be 19 October 2012. Notification regarding presentation at the symposium or the PhD forum will be sent out by 2 November 2012.
