“Software Knowledge” – in short SKY – means that software in its higher abstraction levels is a new kind of knowledge, Runnable knowledge. Thus, the classes and relationships of a software UML diagram are easily viewed as the classes and relationships of a knowledge ontology. 

The main theme of the SKY2013 Workshop is Software Systems Knowledge. We mean that time is ripe to investigate the promising implications of Software Knowledge ideas to real life and large software systems. 

The Workshop main objective is to discuss and propose practical tools to deal not only with experimental and laboratory research, but to actually facilitate transition into industrial grade and production software systems.
