Third International KRUSE Symposium KRUSE '99

Knowledge Retrieval, Use, and Storage for Efficiency

Linkoping University, Sweden July 27-29, 1999


KRUSE '99 provides a forum for exploring current research in artificial intelligence, knowledge and databases that pertains to the organization, encoding, inference and retrieval of logical and complex objects derived from knowledge. The efficiency aspects of these functions are emphasized. The symposium will bring together researchers from diverse disciplines as well as practitioners engaged in developing real knowledge-based systems. The basic questions to be addressed include, but are not restricted to:

The symposium attempts to maintain a balanced covered between theoretical issues and descriptions of implemented systems. Nevertheless, the focus of the symposium is definitely on the efficiency of retrieval, use and storage of knowledge in large knowledge bases.


Papers may be submitted in three formats: long, short or research proposal. Each paper must be identified with one of these categories. Long papers may not exceed 15 pages, including title page, figures and references. Accepted papers will be invited for publication in a later collection published in book form.

Shorter, substantive papers of a maximum of 8 pages are also welcome. They will be published in in-house proceedings given at the symposium, along with research proposals (minimum of 4 pages). Authors must indicate under which category they wish their paper to be reviewed. Papers rejected as long may be accepted as short; papers rejected as short may be accepted as research proposal.

At any stage of the reviewing process, before the final version of a paper is received by the program chair, the authors may withdraw their paper. Registration of one of the authors will be required with the final copy of an accepted paper, no matter what category the paper was accepted in. This registration fee is not refundable.

Authors are requested to submit their paper in postscript format, through electronic mail only, to: In cases where electronic mail utilities are not appropriate for this, anonymous ftp will be available upon request.

For the final version of the paper, the authors will be required to follow as closely as possible the instructions to authors of Springer-Verlag's Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series, which will then be provided to them. For the first submission (March 1st 1999), the authors are required to use a 12pt font, simple interline, and a 1 inch margin of right, left, bottom and top of each page.

The title page of each paper must contain the names of all authors, their affiliation, their complete postal and email addresses, telephone and fax numbers. Communication with the authors will be done solely through email.

In addition, the title page must include an abstract of approximately twenty (20) lines, and a list of short phrases or keywords descriptive of the content (no more than 5). It must also bare the category for which the paper should be reviewed: long, short, or research proposal. Accordingly, the number of pages must absolutely not go over the 15, 8 or 4 pages limit.

The KRUSE99 symposium will be held at the University of Linkoping in Sweden. Linkoping is 200km south of Stockholm. Its location allows for easy access to the 16th International Conference on Artifical Intelligence (IJCAI '99 - see

KRUSE '99 will precede 1999 International Workshop on Description Logics - DL'99 (see also being held in Linkoping July 30 - August 1.
