CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
2007 Performance Metrics for Intelligent Systems (PerMIS'07) Workshop
Elena Messina, NIST (General Chair)
Raj Madhavan, ORNL/NIST (Program Chair)
The 2007 Performance Metrics for Intelligent Systems (PerMIS'07:
http://www.isd.mel.nist.gov/PerMIS_2007) Workshop will be the seventh
in the series that started in 2000, targeted at defining measures and
methodologies of evaluating performance of intelligent systems. The
workshop has proved to be an excellent forum for discussions and
partnerships, dissemination of ideas, and future collaborations in an
informal setting. Attendees usually include researchers, graduate
students, practitioners from industry, academia, and government agencies.
The cardinal theme of of this year's workshop will be the interplay
between autonomy and intelligence, i.e. how does autonomy influence
intelligence and vice versa. In addition to the main theme, as in
previous years, the workshop will focus on applications of
performance measures to practical problems in commercial, industrial,
homeland security, and military applications. Topic areas include,
but are not limited to:
Defining and measuring aspects of a system:
The level of autonomy
Evaluating components within intelligent systems:
Sensing and perception
Knowledge representation, world models, ontologies
Planning and control
Learning and adapting
Infrastructural support for performance evaluation:
Testbeds and competitions for intercomparisons
Instrumentation and other measurement tools
Simulation and modeling support
Technology readiness measures for intelligent systems
Applied performance measures in various domains, e.g.,
Intelligent transportation systems
Emergency response robots (search and rescue, bomb disposal)
Homeland security systems
Hazardous environments (e.g., nuclear remediation)
Industrial and manufacturing systems
Medical Robotics & Assistive devices
SPONSORSHIP & INDEXING
PerMIS'07 is being held with technical co-sponsorship of the IEEE
Washington Section Robotics and Automation Society Chapter
(http://www.ewh.ieee.org/r2/washsec/) and in-cooperation with the
