Pahoittelen spämmäystä, mutta juuri valmistui tämä final CFP eli lähetän
sen teille saman tien.

                        Final Call for Papers

            International and Interdisciplinary Conference on
             ADAPTIVE KNOWLEDGE REPRESENTATION AND REASONING

                    Espoo, Finland, 15-17 June 2005
                   Helsinki University of Technology

Conference Topic
----------------

AKRR'05 conference focuses on adaptive approaches of knowledge
representation and reasoning. The basic idea is to bring together
evidence from various disciplines including computer science,
experimental psychology, brain research and cognitive science.
Methodogical basis lies in probability theory, statistics, artificial
neural networks, dynamical systems theory and related disciplines.

Specific symposium and workshop topics in the conference are:

    * Knowledge Representation of Biological Information
      http://www.cis.hut.fi/AKRR05/krbio05/

      The KRBIO'05 symposium focuses on the representation of
      information in several areas of life sciences taking into
      account the complexity, dynamics and co-occurrence of the
      phenomena, and the heterogeneous sources of information.

    * Adaptive Models of Knowledge, Language and Cognition
      http://www.cis.hut.fi/AKRR05/amklc05/

      The AMKLC'05 symposium focuses on emergence, complexity and
      self-organization in cognitive and social systems: how knowledge
      is being created and established within human and
      computer-mediated networks and the role of language as an
      adaptive medium for knowledge building.

    * Emergent Models of Language for Speech Processing and
      Machine Translation

      In the EML'05 symposium, the use of emergent models
      in the area of language technology is explored.
      For example, we are interested in the discovery of models
      of syntatical structures and grammars, language models and
      their constituents, basic representational units such as
      morphemes and phonemes.

We invite novel high-quality papers that are related to the conference
themes including but not limited to:

    * contextuality in statistical analysis and reasoning
    * Bayesian models of learning and reasoning
    * dynamical systems models of knowledge
    * spatial representations of knowledge
    * analyses of the limitations of logic-based
      representations and reasoning

    * highly contextual reasoning based on very high-dimensional
      representations
    * statistical machine learning
    * pattern-based reasoning
    * unsupervised and reinforcement learning models for knowledge
      acquisition and representation
    * knowledge capture

    * continuous formal systems
    * emergent representations based on independent component analysis
      (ICA) and self-organizing maps (SOM)
    * emergence of symbolic representations
    * cognitive models of perceptually grounded reasoning processes
    * knowledge representation and reasoning in non-stationary
      environments

    * explicit and implicit knowledge
    * internal and external representations
    * models of temporal processes and reasoning
    * subjective and intersubjective representation of time
    * knowledge representation and reasoning in the brain

    * non-symbolic ontologies and adaptive knowledge representation
      for the web
    * adaptive, dynamical and probabilistic representations of social
      and societal structures and processes
    * adaptive knowledge representation of industrial processes
    * probabilistic and pattern-based reasoning on financial and
      economical phenomena
    * emergent and evolutionary representations for creative and
      design processes

Proceedings and Special Journal Issue
-------------------------------------

The conference papers will be published by Helsinki University of
Technology as printed proceedings and they will also be made available
through the web to ensure wide distribution.

In addition, the authors of the best papers will be invited to extend
their papers for journal publication(s) including a special issue of
the Internation Journal of Neural Systems.
