Dear DAML Researchers, I am editing a special issue of the Information Fusion journal. It seems to me that this would be a good opportunity to the DAML community to connect with the fusion community (which deals with sensory information). Please contact me if you need more details about this special issue. I am one of the team members of the Lockheed Martin UBOT Project in the DAML program. ==Mitch Kokar Call for papers for a special issue on Fusion of Symbolic and Sensory Information in Information Fusion: An International Journal on Multi-Sensor, Multi-Source Information Fusion An Elsevier Science Publication HTML: http://www.coe.neu.edu/~kokar/SymbolicFusion.htm PDF: http://www.coe.neu.edu/~kokar/SymbolicFusion.pdf Editor-in-Chief: Dr. Belur V. Dasarathy email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org Guest Co-Editor Mieczyslaw M. Kokar Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering Northeastern University 360 Huntington Avenue Boston, MA 02115, USA. Tel: 1-617-373-4849; Fax: 1-617-373-8970 Email: email@example.com Deadline for Submission: October 31, 2001 Symbolic information may come into the fusion process from two directions, or at two different levels. It is most likely that the requirements for a fusion system are first stated in natural language. These requirements guide the development of the fusion system and, ultimately, are translated into code in a programming language. In such a case, the linguistic information is transformed and encoded into the fusion program. On the other hand, one of the information sources may be represented in textual format. The symbolic information can be structured (like in databases), semi-structured (e.g., annotated using XML, RDF, DAML, or other annotation languages), formal (e.g., sentences in predicate calculus), or unstructured (text documents). This special issue is devoted to research related to information fusion where symbolic information is processed by the fusion system. Authors are encouraged to submit original, unpublished research papers in the areas related to the topic of symbolic fusion. Papers on both theory and applications of fusion of symbolic information and other non-symbolic data sources will be welcome. Specific areas of interest include (but are not limited to): - Theoretical aspects (linguistics and fusion, symbolic fusion) - Design methodologies for symbolic fusion systems - Formal methods approaches and reasoning in information fusion - Case studies of designs from symbolic specifications - Design of fusion systems using formal methods - Fusion of information in text documents with other sources (imagery, radar data, acoustic, IR and other) - Fusion of annotated data sources - Fusion of ontologies used for annotation of data sources Prospective authors should follow the regular paper preparation guidelines found at http://www.elsevier.com/inca/publications/store/6/2/0/8/6/2/index.htt. Both regular and correspondence items will be considered. Submit: a hard copy to the Guest Co-Editor and an electronic copy in PDF or Postscript format to the Guest Co-Editor: Kokar@coe.neu.edu and to Editor-in-Chief: firstname.lastname@example.org.
