 International KRUSE Symposium
 ___ Knowledge Retrieval, Use, and Storage for Efficiency ___
 University of California, Santa Cruz

THEME
The symposium will provide a forum for exploring current research in
artificial intelligence, cognitive science, and databases that pertains
to the organization, encoding and retrieval of logical and complex
objects. The symposium will draw together researchers from diverse
disciplines as well as practitioners engaged in developing real
object-oriented term classification systems. Mathematical and
Graph-Theoretic approaches will be favoured over those approaches based
on analogy with human cognitive processes, though mathematical
discussions of such processes will be appropriate. The basic questions
to be addressed include

 o classification of objects in a taxonomy: systemic classification,
 semantic indexing, partial-order sorting, description identification,
 and taxonomy maintenance.
 o efficient order, lattice, graph, and code theoretic operations on
 objects: subsumption, generalization, specialization, least common
 generalization, and greatest common specialization.
 o advanced uses of taxonomies: knowledge compression, knowledge
 compilation, and knowledge evolution.
 o using classified knowledge: classification as problem solving,
 classification as constraint satisfaction, and exploiting abstraction.
 o scalable techniques for large object databases
 o integration of data and knowledge base technologies

The symposium will maintain a balance between theoretical issues and
descriptions of implemented systems providing a balance between theory and
practice. The focus of the symposium is on efficiency of retrieval, use
and storage.

SYMPOSIUM LOCATION

The symposium will be held at the University of California, Santa Cruz
in a redwood forest in the Santa Cruz mountains. The university and
conference facilities are retreat style with housing available in
family-style apartments residing on the campus. The university is well
serviced by buses to downtown Santa Cruz. The campus, just 10 minutes
from the oceanside, overlooks Monterey Bay, the popular surfing
beaches, and you can watch the eagles soar from the Birds of Prey
sanctuary which forms part of the campus. Santa Cruz is approximately
a 90 minute bus ride from San Francisco Airport and about 45 minutes
from San Jose.
