Subject: KARP-95 Conference Date: Thu, 21 Jul 1994 21:44:03 -0500 C a l l F o r P a p e r s ------------------------------ K A R P - 95 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. Focus ~~~~~ 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. o Application Independent Tools: - Neuromorphic & Evolutionary Systems - Fuzzy Knowledge Systems & Language Interfaces - High-Speed Management Systems - Cognitive Maps - Rule Based Systems - Autonomous Agents - Autodeductive & Autolearning Systems - Automatic Acquisition & Processing of Data - Mathematical Modeling - Parallel & Distributed Computing - Object-Oriented Databases - Multimedia - OpenDoc and Object Linking Environment (OLE) o Software Engineering: - CASE Tools - Object-Oriented Analysis and Design - Object-Oriented Programming - Ada 9X versus C++ - Program Testing and System Integrity - Reverse Engineering - Interdisciplinary Education - Data Acquisition and Validation - Software Libraries - Intelligent Sensors - User Interfaces o Artificial Intelligence: - Knowledge Acquisition approaches & Tools - Knowledge Representation - Integration of Heterogeneous Knowledge Representations - Knowledge Bases & Models - Uncertainty issues in Knowledge Representation & Processing - Search & planning approaches - Inference Methodologies - Interdisciplinary Artificial Intelligence Applications o Applications Areas: - Engineering Science Applications - Physical Science Applications - Computer Chemistry - Medicine, Health Care, Life, and Biological Sciences - Industrial Applications - 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 P.O. Box L Tuscaloosa AL 35486-9777 Tel: +1 (205) 759-9432 FAX: +1 (205) 759-9440 E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org 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 relevance. Important Dates ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Paper & Poster Extended Abstract Submission: ... December 1, 1994.
