EIGHTEENTH INTERNATIONAL JOINT CONFERENCE ON ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
August 10th, 2003
The EDSS 2003 workshop recognizes the critical importance of environment and resource issues and their relationships with artificial intelligence (AI) research. The workshop's central focus is the linkage between patterns of AI activity and the environment with a major emphasis on translating the scientific basis for environmental concern into techniques and strategies that address both the needs of human societies and the requirements of natural systems. The workshop will foster a discussion platform for AI and environmental science researchers.
Research activities presented within the workshop may come from all environmental science fields, showing how AI approaches can be useful to the design and management of environmental systems. Papers presented within the workshop should examine:
Contributions are invited from all members of the AI community working on any Environmental field showing how AI approaches can be useful to solve problems in environmental systems. New or improved techniques or methods, as well as innovative applications are welcome. Papers emphasising integration of various technologies or paradigms are particularly welcome, including (but not restricted to):
Application areas may be related to any Environmental field such as:
Presentations of the current state of ongoing research
projects and challenging, survey or position contributions are welcome,
Workshop NotesPapers from the workshop
Authors planning to submit a contribution must contact the Workshop Committee by e-mail as soon as possible. A provisional title and short abstract must be provided, and the description of ongoing research projects as well as real-world applications in which the authors are involved will be very appreciated. Authors should send an electronic version by e-mail (Word document, PDF file or Unix compatible Postscript file) of their original manuscript to the Workshop Committee by March 7, 2003. Each manuscript should include an abstract of no more than 150 words and should include a list of no more than five keywords.
Suggested format for submissions is the same as for the main IJCAI'03 conference. See instructions for details.Each manuscript will be peer-reviewed by at least 2 reviewers. The reviewers may be selected from the contributors.
In addition to the workshop notes, papers based on workshop submissions may be published as a book or special issue of a journal. Selected authors will have the opportunity to revise and extend their contributions.
Note: Participants are expected to register for the main IJCAI conference in addition to the workshop.
