KDCloudApps 2017

Third International Workshop on Knowledge Discovery and Cloud Computing Applications

Collocated with DATA 2017

July 24th, 25th and 26th, Madrid, Spain

The objective of the Third International Workshop on Knowledge Discovery and Cloud Computing Applications (KDCloudApps 2017) is to provide a forum to exchange and discuss recent advances, results, experiences and lessons learned from the development of applications that apply tools, techniques, methods, and models supported by Knowledge Discovery (KD) and Cloud Computing (CC) technologies. Additionally, KDCloudApps also provides a forum to discuss how KD and CC technologies interact in order to provide more scalable and flexible intelligent information systems.


The topics of interest for KDCloudApps 2017 workshop are related with applications that incorpo-rate current advances of: natural language processing techniques for knowledge discovery, senti-ment analysis, opinion mining, social network analysis, news mining, semantic enrichment, semantic Web, cloud resource monitoring, cloud computing, ontologies to support knowledge discovery, reasoning on ontologies for knowledge discovery, service-oriented applications, ambient intelli-gence, pervasive systems and ubiquitous computing. The central themes of this conference incor-porate current innovations and advances in the areas of: artificial intelligence, natural language processing, soft computing, databases, information retrieval, social networks, distributed computing, Web engineering, among others.


The organizers of the Third International Workshop on Knowledge Discovery and Cloud Computing Applications (KDCloudApps 2017) cordially invite researchers, graduate students, professionals and entrepreneurs to participate submitting research papers related with one or more of the themes proposed for the Workshop:

  • Advances in cloud computing applications
  • Cloud computing and the Semantic Web

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research and application papers that are not being considered in another forum. All submitted papers will be peer review by at least three mem-bers of the technical committee, and carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, clarity and scientific-technical rigor reported.

It is recommended that Regular Papers are submitted for review with around 8 to 10 pages, including references, tables, graphs, images and appen-dices. Submissions with less than 4 pages or more than 13 pages will be automatically rejected. Please follow Proceedings Author Guidelines to prepare your papers. The guidelines for authors can be found at

All papers must be submitted through the online submission platform PRIMORIS and should follow the instructions and templates provided in, which are also the templates for the camera-ready submission. After the paper submission has been successfully completed, authors will receive an automatic confirmation e-mail.

After a double-blind peer review, qualifying papers may be accepted as either Full Papers or Short Papers.

Papers classified as Full Papers are awarded a 30’ minutes slot for an oral presentation at the conference. Papers classified as Short Papers are given either a 20’ minutes slot for an oral presen-tation or assigned to present at a Poster Session. Authors who have been assigned an oral presentation, either Full or Short, may however also choose to present at a Poster Session instead, should they prefer it.


Paper Submission (EXTENDED): May 15, 2017
Author Notification: May 29, 2017
Camera-ready and Registration: June 6, 2017
Workshop: July 24-26, 2017


All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef ( and every paper on this digital library is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier).

It is planned to publish a short list of revised and extended versions of presented papers with Springer in a CCIS Series book,, (final ap-proval pending).


The proceedings will be submitted to Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP, EI (Elsevier Index) and Scopus for indexation.


Regarding post-publications and best paper awards, only the papers that had additional reviews performed by independent members of the workshop program committee are candidates either to post-publications or to best paper awards, prior to consider the possibility of their actual inclusion in the selection lot.
