The goal of the International Workshop on Expert Systems in Engineering is to stimulate the flow of information between researchers working on theoretical and applied research topics in this area. It puts special emphasis on new technologies relevant to industrial engineering expert systems, such as model-based diagnosis, qualitative reasoning, planning, and design, and to the conditions in which they operate, in real time, with database support. The workshop is especially relevant for engineering environments like CIM (computer integrated manufacturing) and process automation.
