The 10th International Conference on Software, Knowledge, Information Management and Application (SKIMA 2016) is going to be held from 15 to 17 December 2016 in Chengdu, China. The conference aims to bring together researchers and experts in Knowledge Management, Software Engineering and Information Systems to share their ideas, experiences and insights.

This conference series was started in an international collaboration context between research professionals in Western and Asian countries in Chiang Mai, Thailand 2006. Subsequently, the next SKIMA conferences were organized in Kathmandu, Nepal in 2008; Fez, Morocco in 2009; Paro, Bhutan in 2010; Benevento, Italy in 2011, Chengdu, China in 2012, Chiang Mai, Thailand in 2013, Dhaka, Bangladesh in 2014, Kathmandu, Nepal 2015. With the technical co-sponsorship of IEEE  Chengdu Section, all the accepted conference papers will be submitted for acceptanc into IEEE Xplore so EI indexed.

We welcome researchers and practitioners from research institutions, R&D enterprise services and governmental organizations to exchange innovative contributions around the conference topics. It will feature plenary speeches, industrial panel sessions, funding agency panel sessions, interactive sessions, and invited special sessions. Contributions are expected from academia, industry and government funding councils.

The conference is sponsored by the following EU projects.
