|Data management, knowledge discovery as well as knowledge processing are core and hot topics in computer science. They are widely accepted as enabling technologies for modern enterprises enhancing their performance, especially in the decision making process. Since the 1990s the Internet has been the outstanding driving force for application development in all domains.
An increase in the demand of resource sharing (e.g. computing resources, services, metadata, data sources) across different sites connected through networks leads to an evolvement of data and knowledge management systems from centralized systems to decentralized systems enabling large scale distributed applications providing high scalability.
The objective of the international journal on Large Scale Data and Knowledge Centered Systems is to provide an opportunity to disseminate original research contributions and a high quality communication platform for researchers and practitioners. The journal contains sound peer reviewed papers (research, state of the art and technical) of high quality.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
