32nd International Workshop on Principles of Diagnosis DX’21

DX 2021

Engineering & Computer Science (General)

The DX-2021 program committee invites submissions of technical papers for DX-2021, to be held in Hamburg, Germany on September 13-15, 2020. The DX-2021 program committee welcomes papers on topics that are related but not limited to the following:
Formal theories and computational methods for diagnosis, that include monitoring, detection and isolation, testing, repair and therapy, reconfiguration, fault tolerance, diagnosability analysis, and other related topics.
Modeling for diagnosis that includes discrete, discrete-event, qualitative, continuous, hybrid, probabilistic, behavioral and functional modeling together with abstraction, approximation and reformulation methods. Effective modeling approaches for large systems are of particular relevance.
Computational issues in diagnosis that address combinatorial explosion, use of structural and hierarchical knowledge, focusing strategies and heuristics, resource-bounded reasoning, real-time analysis, precompilation, and other related topics.
Diagnosis processes that include strategies for measurement selection, sensor placement, active testing, embedded diagnosis, distributed diagnosis, preventive diagnosis, fault-adaptive control, and human interaction with diagnostic systems.
Connections and interplay between (AI-based) diagnosis methods and related areas: FDI, control theory, statistics, machine learning, knowledge representation, planning and optimization, autonomous systems, safety, verification, software engineering and debugging, and hardware instrumentation and testing.
Real-world applications and integrated systems in a wide range of fields including transportation, space and aeronautics, robotics, manufacturing, energy, networks and services, and medical domains.  Case studies of technology transfer that resulted in success or failure are especially welcome.

Policy on Multiple Submissions
Many conferences (notably, IJCAI), accept duplicate submissions. The DX policy is to accept such duplicate submissions where the submission does not violate the other conference or journal policies and where the submission does not constitute self-plagiarism.
Paper Length and Format
Submitted papers must be no longer than eight pages, including all figures and references, and must be formatted according to the posted DX-2021 guidelines.  Papers must be formatted for letter paper, in double-column format with a 10pt font. Electronic templates for the LaTeX typesetting package, as well as a Microsoft Word template, that conform to the DX-2021 guidelines are available at the workshop website.   Authors are required to submit their electronic papers in PDF format. Files in postscript (ps) or any other format will not be accepted. Over-length papers will not be considered for review. Each accepted paper will be allowed eight pages in the proceedings.
Electronic Submission
Papers must be submitted electronically through https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dx2021.
Presentation of Accepted Papers
Papers will be accepted for either oral or poster presentation. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to attend the conference to present the work. Authors will be required to agree to this requirement at the time of submission.
Review Process
Papers will be subject to peer review. Selection criteria include accuracy and originality of ideas, clarity and significance of results and quality of presentation.  The decision of the Program Committee will be final and cannot be appealed.
