 International KRUSE Symposium
 ___ Knowledge Retrieval, Use, and Storage for Efficiency ___
 University of California, Santa Cruz
 August 11-13 1995

Submission postmark deadline February 13, 1995
Notification of acceptance April 12, 1995
Camera-ready copy June 12, 1995

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.

Papers may not exceed 15 pages. Shorter, substantive papers are
welcome. Authors are requested to submit five (5) copies of their
paper. Alternatively, electronic submissions of papers (postscript
output) are encouraged. Authors are further requested to attach title
pages to their submissions bearing their names, addresses, telephone numbers,
FAX numbers and e-mail addresses. In addition, authors are asked to
include abstracts of approximately twenty (20) lines with each paper,
and a list of short phrases descriptive of the content.Papers must be
postmarked on or before Monday February 13, 1995.
