COST Action: 274

Theory and Applications of Relational Structures as Knowledge Instruments

Start date : 11th June 2001
Duration : 4 Years
End date : 10 June 2005
No. Participating Countries : 16


The main objective of the Action is

To advance the understanding and use of relational structures in applicable ob-ject domains.

There are the following sub–objectives:

1. To study the semantical and syntactical aspects of relational structures arising from real world situations.

2. To investigate automated inference for relational systems, and, where possible or feasible, develop deductive systems which can be implemented into indus-trial applications such as diagnostic systems.

3. To develop non-invasive scaling methods for the prediction of relational data, and to compare and possibly integrate a nominal scaling approach with nu-merical methods such as fuzzy relations, Bayesian networks etc.

4. To study and enhance current methods of relational qualitative reasoning about physical systems.
