International Conference on Scalable Uncertainty Management (SUM-2007)

Oct 10-12, 2007
Washington DC area


There is now intense interest in both the Artificial Intelligence
community and in the Database community on managing uncertainty and
inconsistency in databases. However, researchers in AI may not
necessarily be aware of database concerns and conversely, database
researchers may not always be aware of AI concerns and past
contributions. The Scalable Uncertainty Modeling conference aims to
bring all those interested in the management of large volumes of
uncertainty together, irrespective of whether they are in databases
or in AI. Papers are solicited in all areas of massive uncertainty
including, but not restricted to, the topics listed below.

  * probability logic
  * semantics of uncertain data
  * formal models of uncertain data
  * reasoning with inconsistent and uncertain information
  * fuzzy logic
  * annotated logic
  * Bayesian models
  * Markov models
  * paraconsistent logic
  * uncertain DB algebras
  * query optimization with uncertainty
  * spatio-temporal uncertainty
  * caching for uncertain DBs
  * uncertain DB calculi
  * inconsistency management
  * uncertainty and views
  * indexing methods for uncertainty
  * uncertain aggregate queries
  * multimedia and uncertainty
  * mobile uncertainty
  * implementations
  * applications
  * vision and uncertainty
  * audio processing and uncertainty
  * commercial systems
  * learning
  * data mining
  * data sharing and uncertainty
  * approximate schema mapping

The proceedings of the conference will be published by Springer
Verlag in their Lecture Notes in AI Series. Research papers of 14
pages maximum in the Springer Lecture notes in Computer Science
format (www.springer.com/lncs) are sought.

Important Dates:
Paper submission: May 10, 2007.
Paper accept/reject decisions: July 10, 2007.
Camera ready copies due: July 25, 2007.
