Bulletin #1, February 2005
Welcome to 2005. This year offers most interesting events on Artificial Intelligence in Europe. First, you have a chance to improve your knowledge on Advanced Knowledge Technologies (including Knowledge Discovery) at ECCAI's summer school (called ACAI-2005). The courses will given in one of the most charming new capitals of the new EU member countries, namely Ljubljana (Slovenia). A Doctoral Consortium will be part of ACAI-2005. It will give young scientists a forum for presenting and discussing their ideas. The ECCAI Travel Award Scheme will support participation in ACAI-2005.
ACAI 2005 will focus on Advanced Knowledge Technologies : data
mining and semantic web. It will take place in Ljubljana,
Slovenia, 26 June 27 - July 5. It is complemented by SEKT-05,
July 6 - 8. It is organized by the Slovenian Artificial
Intelligence Society (SLAIS).
Lateron, beginning of August, Edinburgh should be on your travel plan. This year's IJCAI is located in Europe, more exactly in Scotland. Go for it.
