KSCO - Knowledge Systems For Coalition Operations is an international
working group exploring research in Knowledge Systems for Coalition
Operations. Biennially, KSCO organizes a technical conference where
practitioners and key decision makers in coalition operations
management meet and discuss with researchers from areas of
knowledge-based systems, planning and multi-agent systems, exchange
experience and ideas, share inspiration and suggest novel concepts. It
can also lead to joint project proposals.

After very successful events in Edinburgh, UK and Toulouse, France the
KSCO conference in 2004 will be organized at IHMC, Pensacola, Florida.

KSCO 2004 welcomes submission of original research papers from the
areas of knowledge-based systems, coalition formation and multi-agent
systems related to coalition operations management. We will review
theoretical, experimental, methodological papers as well as case
studies, prototype evaluations and application reports. KSCO
organizers particularly encourage submission of reports presenting
larger coalition related national and international project and


Suggested topics to be discussed include but are not limited to:
* innovative theory and techniques for coalition formation
* requirements for knowledge-based coalition planning and operations
* knowledge-based approaches to command and control
* knowledge-based approaches to coalition logistics
* applications and requirements for knowledge-based coalition planning
* knowledge-based approaches to Operations-Other-Than-War
* multi-agent systems and the concept of agency in coalitions
* tools and techniques for knowledge-based simulation and modeling of
coalition operations
* security and maintenance of private information or knowledge in coalition
* autonomous vs. centrally managed coalition operations
* mobility, agile and autonomous computing in coalition operation
* complexity issues and scalability in coalition operations
* deployed systems, case studies

Participation will be by invitation of the organizing committee and
there will be a limited number of attendees to encourage a productive
exchange of ideas between those involved.

The interested authors shall submit either long (8 pages in the
proceedings) or short (4 pages in the proceedings) papers describing
the work on knowledge systems for coalition operations. Short papers
are particularly suitable for project/programmes introduction,
descriptions of demonstrations and prototypes.

The IEEE Intelligent Systems editorial board has agreed to consider
the best KSCO-2004 papers for publication. The KSCO programme
committee will invite the authors of the best papers to submit them to
the full review process of IEEE Intelligent Systems.
