PerMIS'07 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 this year's workshop will be the interplay between autonomy and intelligence, i.e. how does autonomy influence intelligence and vice versa. Inaddition 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:
Selected papers from the past workshops have been published as special issues with the Journal of Integrated Computer-Aided Engineering(PerMIS'04) and the Journal of Field Robotics(PerMIS'06).
The Proceedings of PerMIS'07 will be indexed by INSPEC (EI Compendexis pending approval) and are released as a NIST Special Publication.
