  		    Second International Symposium on Knowledge  
       		Acquisition, Representation and Processing (KARP-95)

			 September 27 - September 30, 1995

			Auburn University Conference Center
				Auburn, Alabama

   Sponsored by: Auburn University, Pennsylvania State University, University 
   of Technology (Rzeszow, Poland), Polish National Academy of Sciences
   (Committee for Scientific Research), ORNL (Oak Ridge)-pending, U.S. Bureau
   of Mines (Tuscaloosa)-pending, in pending cooperation with: Association for
   Computing Machinery (ACM), American Chemical Society (ACS), Institute for 
   Electronic and Electrical Engineering (IEEE), and International Society 
   for Computer Applications (ISCA).
				The Symposium
  KARP is an international forum for presentation and discussion of inter-
  disciplinary research on knowledge acquisition, representation, and
  processing, as well as recent advances on discipline independent tools 
  for realizing large-scale applications of knowledge based systems. The 
  purpose of the symposium is to identify challenging problems common to 
  many disciplines that must be solved to realize future knowledge and 
  information systems, and to shape future directions of research by 
  soliciting and reviewing high quality, applied and theoretical research 
  findings. An important part of the symposium is the provision for one-on-
  one interactions provided by an intimate setting, poster sessions and 
  demonstrations of operational systems.

  The topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following 
  areas. Papers should be focused on particular aspects of the symposium 
  theme (KARP) and demonstrate how the particular topic(s) of choice 
  relates to the symposium.

    - Business Applications

  			Paper and Poster Submission 
  The Symposium Proceedings will contain extended abstracts (two to 
  three single space pages) of accepted papers and posters. Presentations 
  will be selected on the basis of the extended abstracts. Camera ready 
  complete papers, not to exceed 5,000 words, will be due on the first
  day of the symposium and then judged by the program committee for
  inclusion in a special issue of an appropriate international journal. 
  Authors are invited to submit extended abstracts to the Program Chair 
  at the following address:
 		        Chuck Karr
        		U.S. Bureau of Mines
          		The University of Alabama Campus

        	  	Tel: +1 (205) 759-9432
          		FAX: +1 (205) 759-9440
  Extended abstracts for papers and posters should reach the program 
  chair by December 1, 1994. Authors must send either six (6) copies 
  of each extended abstract, or an email copy, accompanied by a cover 
  letter containing a list of all authors, their affiliations, 
  telephone numbers, electronic mail addresses, and fax numbers. All 
  submissions will be reviewed and judged with respect to quality and 
               			Important Dates
