Special Issue: Call For Papers

AIEDAM Special Issue, May 2005, Vol.19 No.2 (& No.3)

Engineering Applications of Representations of Function

Edited by: Robert B. Stone & Amaresh Chakrabarti

In engineering design, the end goal is the creation of an artifact, product, system, or process that fulfills some functional requirements at some desired level of performance. As such, knowledge of functionality is essential in a wide variety of tasks in engineering activities, including modeling, generation, modification, visualisation, explanation, evaluation, diagnosis and repair of these artifacts and processes. A formal representation of functionality is essential for supporting any of these activities on computers. The goal of this special issue is to bring together the state of knowledge of representing functionality in engineering applications, both from the engineering and the AI research community.

Topics that may be addressed include:

  • representations of function;
  • reasoning about and with function;
  • engineering applications.

All submissions will be anonymously reviewed by at least two expert reviewers, and a selection for publication made on the basis of these reviews.
