                             SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

    ===========================================================================

                       SPECIAL SESSION ON KNOWLEDGE REPRESENTATION
                             UNDER VAGUENESS AND UNCERTAINTY
                               http://fuzzy.rug.ac.be/fskd

                             ICONIP'02-SEAL'02-FSKD'02

                          2002 International Conference on
                Fuzzy Systems and Knowledge Discovery
                           November 18-22, 2002, Singapore

    ===========================================================================

    To process information using a knowledge-based system requires that
    the data be stated according to an agreed-upon representation formalism.
    Typically, the choice of a given representation will be crucial to the
    efficiency, the expressiveness and the transparency of the overall system.
    Moreover, very often the data to be represented are pervaded with
    modalities of imprecision, notably vagueness and uncertainty. This occurs
    e.g. when our knowledge of a given system or process is only partial, or
    when we are dealing with linguistic information. In any of those cases,
    the system developer is challenged to choose from a panoply of different
    potential frameworks which have been introduced during the past decades to
    deal with this kind of imperfection:

    * fuzzy sets
    * second-order, interval-valued or intuitionistic fuzzy sets
    * rough sets
    * probability, possibility and necessity distributions
    * generalized nets
    * frames
    * ...

    There is of course no strict preference between any of these approaches,
    and their suitability is largely determined by the needs of the
    application at hand. The aim of this session is therefore to bring
    together scientists from different backgrounds to discuss and exchange ideas
    about representational aspects of vagueness and uncertainty. We welcome
    original contributions from both the theoretical and the application side.

    Authors are invited to submit electronic files (postscript, pdf or Word
    format) to the session organizers (address see below). Papers should be
    double-column and use 10pt Times Roman or similar fonts. The final version
    of a paper should not exceed 5 pages in length. A selected number of
    ICONIP'02-SEAL'02-FSKD'02 accepted papers will be expanded and revised for
    possible inclusion in edited books and peer-reviewed journals, such as Soft
    Computing and Knowledge and Information Systems: An International Journal
    by Springer-Verlag.

    Important Dates:

    Paper/Summary Deadline: April 30, 2002
    Notification of Acceptance: July 15, 2002
    Camera-Ready Copy Due: August 15, 2002
