URKE 2011 : The International Conference on Uncertainty Reasoning and Its Application in Knowledge Engineering (URKE ’11)
Call For Papers
The International Conference on Uncertainty Reasoning and Its Application in Knowledge Engineering (URKE ’11) provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and results among researchers, developers, and practitioners working on all aspects of Uncertainty Reasoning and Knowledge Engineering and their applications.
The program of URKE’11 will consist of invited lectures, tutorials, refereed research papers, and tool demonstrations. Research contributions can report new results as well as experimental evaluations and comparisons of existing techniques.
All the submitted papers in these proceedings have been peer reviewed by at least two reviewers drawn from the chairs of committees depending on the subject matter of the paper. Reviewing and initial selection were undertaken electronically. A joint committee meeting was held to resolve the final paper selection and a draft programme for the conference.
We solicit research papers and case studies on any theme related to design thinking, theory, and practice. We place a premium on evidence-based research. Mindful of earlier conferences in the series we offer the following themes of interest and invite authors to take a specific point-of-view. We anticipate that issues at the intersections will be of particular relevance and interest. The conference theme includes, but not limited to, the following topics:
