This work focuses on how database and design meta-data can be used to provide an implementation that both supports design problem solving and adequately addresses issues surrounding database view materialization. 28 Oct -- Issues in Multiagent Design Systems (.pdf) 4 Nov -- advanced topics: tba 11 Nov --no mtg-- 18 Nov -- Case-Based Reasoning in Design (.pdf) 25 Nov --no mtg-- 2 Dec -- Functional Reasoning in Design (.pdf) 9 Dec -- Janice Gobert
