    Using Uncertainty within Computation
    AAAI 2001 Fall Symposium
    November 2-4, 2001
    Sea Crest Oceanfront Resort and Conference Cente
    North Falmouth, Cape Cod, MA

    Final Call for Papers:

    To reason about complex computational systems, researchers are
    starting to borrow techniques from the field of uncertainity
    reasoning. In some cases, this is because the algorithms contain
    stochastic components. For example, Markov decision processes are now
    being used to model the trajectory of stochastic local search
    procedures. In other cases, uncertainity is used to help model and
    cope with the stochastic nature of inputs to (possibly deterministic)
    algorithms. Uncertainity and randomness have also been found to be a
    useful addition to many deterministic algorithms. And a number of
    areas like planning, constraint satisfaction, and inductive logic
    programming which have traditionally ignored uncertainity in their
    computations are waking up to the possibility of incorporating
    uncertainity into their formalisms. The goal of this workshop is to
    encourage symbiosis between these different areas.

    The symposium will consist of invited talks, panel discussions,
    individual presentations and group discussions. Those interested in
    making a presentation should submit a technical paper of up to 8 pages
    in AAAI two column proceedings format. Other participants should
    submit either a position paper or a research abstract of up to 2
    pages.

    Email submissions in postscript format are encouraged. Please send
    submissions to tw@cs.york.ac.uk to arrive, at the very latest, by
    August 10, 2001. The number of participants at the symposium is
    limited. As submissions will be considered on a first-come basis, you
    are advised to submit as soon as possible.
