    CALL FOR PAPERS

    FQAS 2002
    Fifth International Conference on Flexible Query Answering Systems
    October 27 - 29, 2002
    Copenhagen, Denmark
    http://www.fqas2002.org

    FQAS is the premier conference for researchers and practitioners
    concerned with the vital necessity to provide easy, flexible, and
    intuitive access to information for every type of need. This
    multidisciplinary conference draws on several research areas,
    including databases, information retrieval, knowledge
    representation, soft computing, multimedia, and human-computer
    interaction. Previous FQAS events were held in 1994, 1996, 1998
    and 2000.

    OVERALL THEME AND TOPICS OF INTEREST

    The overall theme of the FQAS conferences is innovative query
    systems aimed at providing easy, flexible and intuitive access to
    information. Such systems are intended to facilitate retrieval
    from information repositories such as databases, libraries, and
    the World Wide Web. These repositories are typically equipped
    with standard query systems, which are often inadequate, and the
    focus of FQAS is the development of query systems that are more
    expressive, informative, cooperative and productive.

    The conference brings together researchers in diverse areas,
    including

    - Database Management
    - Information Retrieval
    - Domain Modeling, Knowledge Representation and Ontologies
    - Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining
    - Artificial Intelligence
    - Classical and Non-Classical Logics
    - Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing
    - Multimedia Information Systems
    - Human-Computer Interaction

    The conference is interested in papers in all areas of research
    related to its theme, including formal models, algorithms,
    applications, and experiments.
