European Workshop on Design, Evaluation and Refinement of Intelligent Systems

More and more authors have realized that the lack of systematic methods and formal techniques for the design, the evaluation and the refinement are often important reasons for not using AI systems in practice. The first contributions in this field were limited to classical AI systems. Actually, more and more papers regarding non-classical types of systems (like case-based systems, e.g.), knowledge processing principles (learning principles, e.g.), and intelligent behavior are published.

EUDeris aims to cover the complete life-cycle of Knowledge Systems, i.e. their development, maintenance, evaluation, and refinement. The objective of the special track is to focus on the contributions in these fields and to provide an environment for communicating different paradigms and approaches, thus hopefully stimulating future cooperation and synergistic activities.

The track will host any contributions to design, evaluate and refine intelligent systems.

Possible fields of related papers are:

  • Principles in knowledge systems and ontology design
  • Detecting and handling inconsistencies and other anomalies within knowledge bases
  • Fundamentals and formal methods for verification of AI systems
  • Fundamentals and formal methods and techniques of validity assessment of AI systems, AI principles, and intelligent behavior in general
  • Special approaches to verify and/or validate certain kinds of AI systems: rule-based, case-based, …
  • Special approaches or tools to evaluate systems of a particular application field
  • Knowledge base refinement by using the results of evaluation
  • Development and evaluation of ontologies
  • Maintenance and evolution of knowledge systems and ontologies
  • Methods for the evaluation of distributed knowledge bases
  • Evaluation of semi-formal knowledge bases
  • Problems in system certification and quality management


Extended abstracts (~2-6 pages), preferably in Springer LNCS (or plain (LaTeX) article) format should be submitted by October, 26th, 2008 to
