Dear Colleague,

This is an invitation to I-KOMATí2002: International Workshop on Intelligent Knowledge Management Techniques (I-KOMATí2002) to be held in conjunction with: KES'2002 (Sixth International Conference on Knowledge-Based Intelligent Information & Engineering Systems, 16, 17 & 18 September 2002, Podere d'Ombriano, Crema, Italy)

For detailed information, please visit our web site:



International Workshop on Intelligent Knowledge Management Techniques (I-KOMATí 2002) is a technical forum for exchanging current and future research results /ideas involving Computational Intelligence for identification, analysis and control of knowledge assets and processes. The scope of I-KOMATí 2002 covers both design and application aspects of various Artificial Intelligence Techniques like Artificial Neural Networks, Fuzzy Systems, Evolutionary algorithms, Hybrid systems, Agents, Support Vector Machine etc.

I-KOMATí 2002 offers an Interdisciplinary Platform to all researchers, developers and practitioners dealing with AI based modeling, ontology and planning techniques supporting knowledge management.

Authors are invited to submit their original and unpublished work that demonstrate current research in all areas of computational intelligence including design of artificial neural networks, fuzzy systems, evolutionary algorithms, hybrid systems, agents, and their applications to knowledge management.

Topics of interest include but not limited to:

*Design and modeling aspects of the following Computational Intelligence Techniques and their applications to science, technology, commerce, social science and economics:

-Artificial Neural Networks and Probabilistic Reasoning -Genetic Algorithms -Evolution Strategies -Genetic Programming -Evolutionary Programming -Learning Classifiers -Fuzzy Systems including Fuzzy logic and possibility theory, Fuzzy expert systems, Fuzzy system modeling and simulation -Hybrid Soft Computing Techniques like Neuro-Fuzzy, fuzzy-GA, GA-Fuzzy etc. -Intelligent Agents including Multi-Agents, Autonomous Agents and Cooperative Agents -Support Vector Machines -Bayesian networks and probabilistic reasoning -Rough sets -Case-based Reasoning

*Data and Knowledge Representation: planning and description logics

*Data and knowledge visualization

*Knowledge acquisition

*Models and frameworks of Data Mining techniques

*Reasoning methods and technologies

*Knowledge and belief, belief revision and update, non-monotonic formalisms, uncertainty

***************************************************** Paper Submission ***************************************************** Authors of contributed and invited papers are requested to submit, before March 31, 2002, an article not exceeding five pages, of their research presentation. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper. The conference proceedings will be published worldwide by IOS Press, Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Papers must correspond to the requirements detailed in IOS Instructions for the Preparation of a Camera-Ready Manuscript. All full papers are to be submitted in PDF, postscript or MS word version electronically to: maumita.bhattacharya@infotech.monash.edu.au.

Hard copies should be sent only if electronic submission is not possible. All papers will be peer reviewed by at least two independent referees of the international program committee of I-KOMAT'02.

Extended versions of selected papers will be considered for publication in the KES Journal (International Journal of Knowledge-Based Intelligent Engineering Systems).

****************************************************** Important Dates ****************************************************** Submission deadline: March 31, 2002 Notification of acceptance: April 22, 2002 Camera-ready papers due: May 18, 2002
