The International Workshop on Principles of Diagnosis is an annual event that started in 1989 rooted in the Artificial Intelligence (AI) community. Its current focus is broader covering of a variety of theories, principles, and computational techniques for diagnosis, monitoring, testing, reconfiguration, fault-adaptive control, and repair of complex systems. Application of these theories, principles, and techniques to industry-related disciplines and other domains is amongst the important topics of the workshop.

Like the previous workshops in this series, DX-07 encourages the interactions and the exchange of theories, techniques, applications, and experiences amongst researchers and practitioners from different backgrounds: Artificial Intelligence, Control Theory, Systems Engineering, Software Engineering and other related areas, who share an interest in different aspects of diagnosis, and the related fields of testing, reconfiguration, maintenance, prognosis, and fault-adaptive control.

DX is a lively forum that has traditionally adopted a single-track program with a limited number of participants in order to promote detailed technical exchange and debate while at the same time making efforts to develop synergistic approaches to solving real-world problems.
