REMINDER: AAAI Spring Symposium on Intelligent Event Processing 2009


[ our apologies should you receive this message more than one time ]

           AAAI Spring Symposium on Intelligent Event Processing

AAAI Spring Symposium Wednesday, March 23?25, 2009 at Stanford University


         Deadline for submissions: October 31st, 2008 (12.00 AM, GMT)


Event-based systems are now gaining increasing momentum as witnessed
by current efforts in areas including event-driven architectures,
business process management and modeling, Grid computing, Web services
notifications, and message-oriented middleware. They become ever
important in various application domains, ranging from traditional
business applications, like supply-chain management, to the
entertainment industry, like on-line gaming applications.

However, the current status of development is just the tip of the
iceberg compared with the impact that event processing could achieve,
as already reported by market research companies. Indeed, existing
approaches are dealing primarily with the syntactical (but very
scalable) processing of low-level signals and primitive actions, which
usually goes with an inadequate treatment of the notions of time,
context or concurrency (for example, synchronization). For example,
some of the current event processing products are descendents of the
active database research that misses efficient (formal) handling of
termination, priority ordering, and confluence in rule bases.

AI and especially symbolic (for example, logic-based) approaches
provide native background for the (formal) representation of the above
mentioned missing concepts, enabling evolution from event processing
systems into intelligent reactive systems. The work done in temporal
logic, spatial reasoning, knowledge representation, ontologies, and so
on enables more declarative representation of events and actions and
their semantic processing. Contextual reasoning can support complex
event prediction. Transactional logic can be used for ensuring the
consistency between highly dependent processes in a formal way.

On the other side, the heterogeneous and highly distributed nature of
event-processing systems, especially on the web, provides new
challenges for AI and logics, like the contextualized reasoning over
large stream data, scalable mapping of complex structures, or
distributed approximate reasoning, to name but a few.

Possible symposium topics comprise, but are not limited to:


* Conceptual modeling in event-driven processing
* Modeling context in event-driven processing
* Event processing languages

* Temporal aspects in event mining
* Prediction of events
* Discovery of similar event
* Discovery of unknown events
* Dealing with missing events


* Complex event detection
* The role of logic in event processing
* Distributed reasoning for events
