Conference Information

KSCO - Knowledge Systems for Coalition Operations is an international community of interest exploring research in Knowledge Systems for Coalition Operations. KSCO regularly organizes a technical conference where practitioners and key decision makers in coalition operations meet and discuss with researchers from areas of knowledge-based systems, planning and multi-agent systems, exchange experience and ideas, share inspiration and suggest novel concepts. It can also lead to joint project proposals.

After successful events in Edinburgh UK, Toulouse France, Prague Czech Republic, Waltham MA USA and Southampton UK, the KSCO conference in 2010 washeld at Simon Fraser University, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

KSCO-2010 welcomed submission of original research and application papers related to coalition operations management. A coalition includes, but not limited to, military, inter-agency and cross organization alliances engaged in a cooperative endeavour and joining forces together for a common cause.

Topics were related to knowledge systems requirements and knowledge systems potential or actual use for coalition and inter-agencies operations (i.e., multi-national and multi-agency, civil authorities, home land safety and security, expeditionary or domestic operations). Both full-length (10 page) and poster session (4 page) submissions are welcome. We will review theoretical, experimental, methodological papers, but we are especially interested in case studies, prototype evaluations and application reports. KSCO organizers particularly encouraged submission of reports presenting larger coalition and inter-agencies related national and international projects and programs. Authors wishing to present emerging efforts, especially student projects, were encouraged to submit papers for the poster session.

Key KSCO topics include:
