ECAI-98 Workshop

Monitoring and control of real-time intelligent systems

To be held at the
13th biennial European Conference on Artificial Intelligence

August 24, 1998
Brighton Centre, Brighton, UK

Workshop Description

This workshop is concerned with the design of single- and multi-agent systems that can operate robustly in dynamic environments characterized by rapid change and high level of uncertainty. In such environments, computing the optimal answer is infeasible or economically undesirable.

To address this chalenge, researchers have developed a variety of resource-bounded reasoning techniques that offer a trade-off between solution quality and computational resources such as time or memory. The workshop will present an opportunity for researchers to share recently developed techniques for exploiting computational tradeoffs by static or dynamic monitoring of resource-bounded reasoning and applications in such areas as heuristic search, planning, data transmission, and information gathering. We are particularly interested in applications related to information services over the internet.

Topics of Interest

The workshop will cover empirical results, case studies, and evaluation of systems, prototypes or algorithms. Topics of interest:

Workshop Format

The workshop will include an invited talk, paper presentations, and open discussion. Demonstrations of resource-bounded techniques and systems may also be included.

Submission Requirements

Prospective participants should submit a research paper (up to 8 pages), a position paper (up to 4 pages) or a research summary (1-2 pages) describing their interests in the topics listed above. Demonstration proposals should specify the hardware and software requirements for the demonstration. Papers should be submitted electronically to:
