Goal of the Workshop

Software is playing an important role in economy, government, and military. 
Since software is often deployed in safety critical applications, correctness 
and reliability have become issues of utmost importance. Techniques for 
verification and validation traditionally fall into three main categories. 
The first category involves informal methods such as software testing and 
monitoring. The second involves formal verification, i.e., model checking and 
theorem proving. The third is abstract interpretation and static program 
analysis techniques.

The goal of this workshop is to promote discussion on novel combinations

The capability of reasoning with uncertain and/or incomplete information is a crucial 
feature both of human and machine intelligence. The Special Track on Uncertain Reasoning 
at the Nineteenth International Florida Artificial Intelligence Research Symposium (FLAIRS) 
Conference seeks to bring together researchers working on broad issues related to 
reasoning under uncertainty. This track was started in 1996 and has become an annual 
event at FLAIRS. In 2003 the track was merged with the Special Track on Imprecise and 
Indeterminate Probabilities.

Papers on all aspects of uncertain reasoning and imprecise probabilities are solicited. 
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

[Dbworld] CFP - 2006 IEEE International Conference on Granular Computing

Call for Papers

2006 IEEE International Conference on Granular Computing http://www.cs.sjsu.edu/~grc/ Georgia State
University, Atlanta, USA, May 10-12, 2006 Sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society

Granular Computing (GrC) is a general computation theory for effectively using granules such as classes,
clusters, subsets, groups and intervals to build an efficient computational model for complex
applications with huge amounts of data, information and knowledge. Though the label is relatively
recent, the basic notions and principles of granular computing, though under different names, have
appeared in many related fields, such as information hiding in programming, granularity in artificial
intelligence, divide and conquer in theoretical computer science, interval computing, cluster
analysis, fuzzy and rough set theories, neutrosophic computing, quotient space theory, belief
functions, machine learning, databases, and many others. In the past few years, we have witnessed a
renewed and fast growing interest in GrC.
Granular computing has begun to play important roles in bioinformatics, e-Business, security, machine
learning, data mining, high-performance computing and wireless mobile computing in terms of
efficiency, effectiveness, robustness and uncertainty.

2006 IEEE International Conference on Granular Computing (IEEE-GrC2006,
http://www.cs.sjsu.edu/~grc) to be held at Georgia State University in Atlanta, following the great
success of IEEE-GrC2005 (Beijing, July 25-27, 2005), will continue to bring together researchers from
universities, laboratories and industry to present state-of-the-art research results and
methodologies in theory and applications of granular computing:
- theory and methodologies of granular computing, including rough sets as a special form for granulation;
- applications in data mining, soft computing, bioinformatics, e-Intelligence, security, distributed
computing, etc.

Major research tracks include:
- Computational Intelligence
- Foundation of Data Mining and Learning: Rough Set Theory, Statistical Learning and others

Interoperability is a key issue in e-Commerce because more and more companies
are creating B2B (Business-to-Business) links to better manage their value chain.
In order for these B2B links to be successful, heterogeneous systems from
multiple companies need to interoperate seamlessly. Automating inter-organizational
processes across supply chains presents significant challenges, since these
processes are often complex and involve more varieties of systems than enterprise
integration.

[Dbworld] CFP for 3rd International Workshop on XML Data and Schema Management (with ICDE 2006)

					CALL FOR PAPERS

	3rd International Workshop on XML Schema and Data Management (XSDM 2006)
    			http://www.ntu.edu.sg/home/assourav/XSDM/main.html

  				      in conjunction with

	  The 22nd IEEE International Conference on Data Engineering (ICDE 2006)
                                April 3-7, Atlanta, GA, 2006 

BACKGROUND:

XML has gain lot of attention from database researchers who are actively working in one 
or more of the emerging XML areas. XML data are self-describing, and provide a platform 
independent means to describe data and therefore, can transport data from one platform 
to another. XML documents can be  mapped to one more of the existing data models such as 
Relational and Object-relational, and XML views can be produced dynamically from the 
pre-existing data models. XML queries can be mapped to the queries of the underlying 
models and can use their optimization  features. In this context, schema management and 
discovery, query optimization, data  integration and indexing plays important roles. XML 
data integration is useful for  E-commerce applications such as comparison-shopping, 
which requires further study in  the domain of data, schema and query based integration. 
XML Change management is another important area that has attracted attention in the context of web
warehouse. XML has been 
in use in upcoming areas such web services, sensor and biological data management.

Following the success of the last two International Workshop on XML Schema and Data 
Management, we are pleased to invite original contributions in this area for the 3rd 
International Workshop on XML Schema and Data Management to be held in Atlanta, USA. 
One of the key objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers in this area
