    FINAL CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

    AAAI/KDD/UAI-2002 Joint Workshop on Real-Time Decision Support and
    Diagnosis Systems

    Monday 29 July 2002
    Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

    http://www.kddresearch.org/KDD/Workshops/RTDSDS-2002/

    While AI methodologies are being applied towards increasingly
    realistic domains that require timely responses, real-time systems are
    coming to incorporate decision-making tools that require more
    intelligent capabilities. Many real-world intelligent systems call
    for autonomous intelligent agents acting in the face of uncertain
    knowledge and limited computational resources. Real-time decision
    support and diagnosis systems are two such important application
    domains.

    --- PARTICIPATION

    This workshop will be of interest to researchers and practitioners in
    the area of uncertain reasoning (UAI), real-time artificial
    intelligence (RTAI), and real-time knowledge discovery in databases
    (KDD). Participation in the workshop is by invitation. If interested
    in attending, please send a one-paragraph statement of interests and
    your contact information (name, affiliation, and e-mail) to

    rtdsds-2002@www.kddresearch.org

    so that the workshop organizers can reply with workshop registration
    information. We anticipate participation by 25-50 people at the
    workshop.

    --- Topics

    Active research topics that are relevant to real-time decision support
    and diagnosis include:

    - real-time expert systems
    - embedded intelligent diagnosis agents
    - anytime uncertain reasoning algorithms and flexible computation
    - cost estimation for resource-bounded computation
    - decision-theoretic planning and deliberative real-time artificial
    intelligence
    - real-time Bayesian network inference and learning techniques
    - real-time algorithms for scheduling and situated planning
    - real-time sensor fusion and situation assessment
    - real-time knowledge discovery in databases (KDD)

    --- Format

    The full-day workshop will include two (2) invited talks and
    specialized tutorials on state-of-the-art research problems and
    methodologies, six (6) presentations, seven (7) short talks by
    selected participants, and four (4) panel and open discussion sessions
    on key topics.
