 International KRUSE Symposium

 ___ Knowledge Retrieval, Use, and Storage for Efficiency ___

 University of California, Santa Cruz

 August 11-13 1995

Sponsored by:
 MPR Teltech Ltd, Burnaby, Canada.
 IBM, Santa Teresa Laboratory, San Jose.
 University of California at Santa Cruz.
 Royal Melbourne University of Technology, Australia.
 Centre for Systems Science, Simon Fraser University, Canada.

The symposium is 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 draws together researchers from diverse disciplines as
well as practitioners engaged in developing real object-oriented term
classification systems. 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 maintains 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 of knowledge.
