LNCS Transactions on Large-Scale Data- and Knowledge-Centered Systems

ISSN: 1869-1994
The LNCS journal Transactions on Large-Scale Data- and Knowledge-Centered Systems focuses on data management, knowledge discovery, and knowledge processing, which are core and hot topics in computer science.
Since the 1990s, the Internet has become the main driving force behind applicational development in all domains. An increase in the demand for resource sharing across different sites connected through networks has led to an evolvement of data- and knowledge-management systems from centralized systems to decentralized systems enabling large-scale distributed applications providing high scalability.
Current decentralized systems still focus on data and knowledge as their main resource. Feasibility of these systems relies basically on P2P (peer-to-peer) techniques and the support of agent systems with scaling and decentralized control. Synergy between Grids, P2P systems, and agent technologies is the key to data- and knowledge-centered systems in large-scale environments.
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 to serve as 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.
