Subject: Conf. on Database and Expert Systems Applications


4th International Conference on

Database and Expert Systems Applications

Date: September 6-8, 1993 Location: Prague, Czechoslovakia

Use and development of database and expert systems can be found in all fields of
computer science. The aim of DEXA 93 is to present a large spectrum of already
implemented or just being developed database and expert systems. The conference
will offer the opportunity to extensively discuss requirements, problems, and so
lutions in the field.

Contributions should cover new requirements, concepts for implementations (e.g.
languages, models, storage structures), management of meta data, system architec
tures, and experiences gained by using databases and expert systems in different
areas of applications.

The conference should inspire a fruitful dialogue between developments in practi
ce, users of database and expert systems, and scientists working in the field.


The papers are solicited on applications including, but not limited to the follo
wing topics:

CASE Knowledge Engineering
CIM Legal Information Systems
Communications Machine Learning/Knowledge Aquisition
Computer Cartography Medical Information Systems
Data Protection Multimedia Databases
Databases in the Humanities Museum Information Systems
Databases on Supercomputers Natural Language Interfaces/Processing
Deductive Databases Object-Oriented Databases
Design Tools Office Information Systems
Distributed Applications Parallel Database Systems
Environmental Inf. Systems Scientific/Engineering Applications
Expert Systems Architecture Social/Governmental Information Syst.
Heterogeneous Systems Spatial Databases
Historical Databases Statistical Databases
Hypertext/Hypermedia Uncertainty Handling
Information Retrieval Visual Interfaces
