DOSES (Development of Statistical Expert Systems) is the Community's specific multiannual research and technological development programme of statistical expert systems, 1989-1992. A DOSES workshop focusing on new tools for spatial analysis will take place in Lisbon on 18-20 November 1993 at the Instituto Superior de Estatistica e Gestao de Informacao (ISEGI).

The two broad fields of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and Artificial Intelligence/Expert Systems and Neural Networks (AI/ES/NN), though both evolving at a fast rate over recent years, have been developed mainly by researchers working in very different scientific settings.

It is one objective of this workshop to bring together people in the two areas, so that they can inform, understand and discuss each other's related activities and problems. A cross-fertilization among fields is thus expected to occur, leading to possible joint projects involving institutes with activities in these areas. The core of research and applications of such projects would be statistical information analysis and decision making processes based on relevant, accurate and timely spatial data.

The workshop is organized on a structure of short presentations of papers followed by panel discussions to pinpoint issues in both areas and ways of addressing them. Day One of the event is dedicated to the fundamentals of both fields, Day Two to applications, and Day Three will concentrate on opportunities for cooperation and on a research agenda for the DOSES programme.
