DM: FINAL CFP: ACAI'99 Workshop on Intelligent Techniques for Spatio-Temporal Data

From: Vangelis Karkaletsis
Date: Fri, 12 Mar 1999 08:55:01 -0500 (EST)
  • Organization: NCSR "Demokritos"

       *** Note extended deadline for submissions: 26 March 1999 ***

                           Workshop on 
            Intelligent Techniques for Spatio-Temporal Data
              Analysis in Environmental Applications

     Advanced Course on Artificial Intelligence 1999 (ACAI'99)
                   5-16 July 1999, Chania, Greece

  European Coordinating Committee on Artificial Intelligence (ECCAI)
           Hellenic Artificial Intelligence Society (EETN)

Workshop description
The serious problems in environmental protection, management and 
research can be addressed by effective use of comprehensive and 
reliable environmental data. These data are gathered in various forms 
and can be coming from various sources. A characteristic of
environmental data is their spatial and temporal dimension common 
to most environment problems. Analysis of environmental data can 
lead to effective modelling and understanding of complex 
processes and eventually, the solution of our urgent 
environmental problems.

This workshop is concentrated on state-of-the-art techniques for 
spatial and temporal data analysis in the context of environmental 
problem solving. Spatial and/or temporal data analysis can be applied 
environmental data of various complex real-world problems involving 
instance large multisource temporal databases that may include 
sensed data (e.g. multispectral satellite images, airborne data), 
data and point/local measurements.
Efficient techniques used for the analysis of such data are of great 
value in many environmental problems as for environmental prevention, 
monitoring and assessment of natural disasters.

This workshop is focused on the use of intelligent techniques such as
neural networks, fuzzy logic, genetic algorithms and decision trees, 
environmental monitoring and/or extracting information relevant to the
environment from spatio-temporal data. The goal is the presentation of
state-of-the-art research results and practice on the above domains
based on a theoretical as well as on an application oriented 

Original, high-quality contributions are invited to be presented and
discussed during this research meeting. Participants of different 
backgrounds will be familiarized with the fields of spatio-temporal 
data analysis using intelligent techniques and will gain insight into 
the emerging field of environmental informatics.

Topics of interest include but are not restricted to:

* Extraction of information from spatio-temporal databases using:
  - Neural Networks
  - Fuzzy Systems
  - Genetic Algorithms
  - Decision Trees
  - Machine Learning
  - Advanced Pattern Recognition Techniques
  - Advanced Image Processing Techniques
  - Advanced Forecasting Techniques
  - AI and Expert Systems

* Environmental application areas:
  - Pollution (aerial, water, ground)
  - Land Surface Monitoring (e.g. land-use, forest fires,
  - Ecosystems
  - Waste Control (e.g. oil spills)
  - Sea Surface, Sea Ice, Ocean Winds
  - Meteorology
