Scope:
http://iipwm.ipipan.waw.pl/2005/scope.html
==========================================
Papers on
- Artificial Immune Systems,
- Search Engines,
- Computational Linguistics,
- Knowledge Discovery
and related subjects are particularly encouraged.

The  focus of the Conference will also be on the following topics:
- new computing paradigms, including, but not restricted to biologically
motivated methods, quantum computing, DNA computing,
- advanced data analysis,
- new machine learning paradigms,
- reasoning technologies,
- natural language processing,
- novelty detection,
- new optimization technologies,
- applied data mining using statistical and non-standard approaches,
- technologies for very large data bases,
- uncertainty management.


Artificial Immune Systems:
--------------------------
Research on biologically motivated systems (genetic algorithms, neural
networks, ant colony algorithms) has been going on for many years now. For a
number of reasons the investigation of properties of immune system of humans
and animals fertilized recently a broad range of research in creating
artificial immune systems. The special track on Artificial Immune Systems is
intended for presentation of the progress achieved in the area. Original
contributions are welcome including but not restricted to the following
topics and applications:

- Simulation of natural immune systems
- Learning idiotype systems
- Exploratory data analysis
- Clustering techniques based on immunological principles
- Immunological data compression
- Immunological genetic algorithms
- Discrete and continuous optimization in static and dynamic environments
- Anomaly detection and detection of intruders, new approaches to combating
software viruses

Search Engines:
---------------
Internet is a vast source of information. Unfortunately it is useless unless
we know where to find the piece of information we need. Search Engines and
related tools are intended to tell us where the information is. Here we have
to do with a non-trivial challenge for an artificial intelligent system: it
has to "understand" the relationship between the intention of a natural
language query formulated by a truly intelligent human (the internaut) and
the content of natural language documents prepared by some other intelligent
humans.
We encourage papers devoted to Search Engines technology addressing  the
progress achieved in the area of

- large scale search engines: design and implementation,
- personal search tools,
- intelligent spiders,
- on-line and off-line document clustering,
- static and dynamic document maps,
- intelligent navigation through hypertext document collections
- translation of documents,
- linguistic research on Web documents,
- technologies of extraction of information from text and non-text
documents,
- text mining,
- web mining,
- question answering versus document retrieval
and on related topics.

Computational Linguistics:
--------------------------
Natural language is the most obvious way of man-to-man communication but it
is still very difficult to use for computer programs. To overcome this
difficulty, a lot of effort has been devoted to provide computational models
of various aspects of natural language usage. These results are incorporated
into many working systems today, including speech recognition systems,
text-to-speech synthesizers, automated voice response systems, web search
engines, text editors, or information extraction systems. We invite
contributors interested in  Computational Linguistics to submit papers
concerned especially with:
- automatic text analysis,
- corpus-based language processing,
- statistical and machine learning methods in NLP,
- information retrieval, information extraction and text summarization,
- speech recognition and synthesis,
- question answering systems,
- dialogue systems,
- machine and machine-aided translation tools
and other areas of natural language processing.

Knowledge Discovery:
--------------------
The most intricating area of human activity is the discovery of relations
within the physical and social environment. The complexity of the knowledge
acquisition process and / or the amount of data urge for extended support of
computing machines. We encourage researchers in this and related areas to
submit papers describing results and ongoing research on topics:
- machine learning and statistical tools in knowledge discovery,
- knowledge representation and its impact on discovery processes
- machine learning algorithms
- new knowledge discovery paradigms
- learning from data versus learning from knowledge sources
- autonomous knowledge discovery robots
- knowledge discovery tools in OLAP
- knowledge acquisition from the Web
- applications of knowledge acquisition methodologies and software
and the like.

Publication:
http://iipwm.ipipan.waw.pl/2005/publication.html
================================================
Publication in the Springer Verlag Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence
is envisaged. The volume will contain full papers as well as papers accepted
for poster presentation.

Important Dates:
http://iipwm.ipipan.waw.pl/2005/dates.html
==========================================
November 2, 2004 - paper submission deadline
June 13, 2005 - the Conference starts

Paper Submission and Publication:
http://iipwm.ipipan.waw.pl/2005/forauthors.html
===============================================
The working language of the conference is English. Only original,
unpublished papers in the aforementioned fields are invited. Authors should
upload an electronic version of the full paper (up to eight pages; ps and/or
possibly pdf) by using the registration site* before October 18, 2004. The
papers should be organized in accordance with common scientific structure
(abstract, state of the art in the field, intention, used methodology,
obtained results and references). Papers will be refereed by an
international committee, and accepted on the basis of their scientific
merit, novelty and relevance to the conference topics. After notification of
acceptance, authors will be allowed to make a correction in accordance with
the suggestions of the reviewers and submit final camera-ready papers.

Accepted papers must be presented by author(s) personally to be published in
the conference proceedings. The final papers are to be prepared using LaTeX.
