Catawba Professor Has Paper Accepted
August 2, 2012
Dr. Pam Thompson, a Catawba College associate professor in the Ralph W. Ketner School of Business, has had a paper accepted for an upcoming conference.
Her paper "From Music to Emotions and Tinnitus Treatment, Initial Study" (with Deepali Kohli, Zbigniew Ras, Pawel Jastreboff, and Alicja Wieczorkowska) has been accepted as a regular paper with oral presentation to a top level conference in the field of Information Systems and Artificial Intelligence, the 20th International Symposium on Methodologies for Intelligent Systems (ISMIS'12), to be held December 4-7, 2012, in Macau, China. The conference website is: www.fst.umac.mo/wic2012/ISMIS
The scope of ISMIS is intended to represent a wide range of topics on applying Artificial Intelligence techniques to areas as diverse as decision support, automated deduction, reasoning, knowledge based systems, machine learning, computer vision, robotics, planning, databases, information retrieval, etc. The focus is on research in intelligent systems. The conference addresses issues involving solutions to problems that are complex to be solved through conventional approaches and that require the simulation of intelligent thought processes, heuristics and applications of knowledge.
The integration of these multiple approaches in solving complex problems is of particular importance. ISMIS provides a forum and a means for exchanging information for those interested purely in theory, those interested primarily in implementation, and those interested in specific research and industrial applications.
