ECAI- 2004 One-day Workshop on

Symbolic Networks

August 22nd, 2004

NEWS : Workshop schedule is available

Workshop Objectives:

Symbolic networks are mathematic constructions in which the information is represented mainly by strings or multisets of abstract symbols and it is processed in a cooperative, distributed, and/or parallel manner. The interest of this kind of architectures in Artificial Intelligence has been always maintained in different research areas such as temporal logics, belief networks or generalized semantic networks, with special emphasis in applications such as natural language processing and pattern recognition. Here, we propose a workshop focused in this kind of formal architectures inspired by different theories (mainly biology, computability and control processing). The scope of this workshop is summarized in different topics such as, but not restricted to:
-    "Bioinspired" architectures (tissue P systems and other variants of P system networks, DNA based networks, etc.)
-    Networks of evolutionary processors
-    Neural networks (specially Siegelmann's artificial recurrent neural networks and McCulloch-Pitts neural networks)
-    Other architectures and related topologies
