AAAI Spring Symposium on Intelligent EventProcessing 2009

      AAAI Spring Symposium on Intelligent Event Processing

AAAI Spring Symposium Wednesday, March 23-25, 2009 at Stanford University



Event-based systems are now gaining increasing momentum as witnessed by
current efforts in areas including event-driven architectures, business
process management and modeling, Grid computing, Web services notifications,
and message-oriented middleware. They become ever important in various
application domains, ranging from traditional business applications, like
supply-chain management, to the entertainment industry, like on-line gaming

However, the current status of development is just the tip of the iceberg
compared with the impact that event processing could achieve, as already
reported by market research companies. Indeed, existing approaches are
dealing primarily with the syntactical (but very scalable) processing of
low-level signals and primitive actions, which usually goes with an
inadequate treatment of the notions of time, context or concurrency (for
example, synchronization). For example, some of the current event processing
products are descendents of the active database research that misses
efficient (formal) handling of termination, priority ordering, and
confluence in rule bases.

AI and especially symbolic (for example, logic-based) approaches provide
native background for the (formal) representation of the above mentioned
missing concepts, enabling evolution from event processing systems into
intelligent reactive systems. The work done in temporal logic, spatial
reasoning, knowledge representation, ontologies, and so on enables more
declarative representation of events and actions and their semantic
processing. Contextual reasoning can support complex event prediction.
Transactional logic can be used for ensuring the consistency between highly
dependent processes in a formal way.

On the other side, the heterogeneous and highly distributed nature of
event-processing systems, especially on the web, provides new challenges for
AI and logics, like the contextualized reasoning over large stream data,
scalable mapping of complex structures, or distributed approximate
reasoning, to name but a few.

Possible symposium topics comprise, but are not limited to:


*    Conceptual modeling in event-driven processing

*     Event-driven architecture for Intelligent Event Processing


*    Complex event patterns mining
*    Temporal aspects in event mining
*    Prediction of events
*     Discovery of similar event
*    Discovery of unknown events
*    Dealing with missing events
