ACAI-07: August 20-28th 2007, Leuven,
The 2007 edition of ECCAI's Advanced Course on Artificial Intelligence
will be held in Leuven, Belgium, August 20-28. The subject of the
school is "Logic for Artificial Intelligence". The target audience
consists of PhD students in the area of Informatics or Computer Science
with some background in computational logic, who want to broaden their
knowledge of the domain.
The school is a unique opportunity to learn from and interact with some
of the world's most renowned specialists. The programme includes
courses by Marc Denecker, Luc De Raedt, Bernhard Nebel, Marie-Christine
Rousset, Fariba Sadri, Robert Kowalski, Ulrike Sattler, Heiner
Stuckenschmidt and Pascal Van Hentenryck, on such diverse topics as
logic for knowledge representation, logic-based agents, constraint
programming, probabilistic logics and learning, logic for the semantic
web. In addition, students will have the opportunity to present their
own research in a poster session.
The summerschool features an attractive social programme, including
visits to Leuven and a daytrip to Bruges. Leuven is very easily
accessible (15' by train from Brussels Airport) and is
located right in the center of major touristic locations (just a few
hours by train from Paris, London, Amsterdam).
Participation costs will be low, with a registration cost of 350 euro,
lodging opportunities from 29 euro per night, and student restaurants
offering hot meals for 2.4 to 4.5 euro. In addition, ECCAI provides a
limited number of grants.

March/April 2007 : Interacting with Autonomy
For at least the foreseeable future, people will still need to interact
with autonomous systems at various levels of involvement as conditions
change dynamically. This special issue presents articles on human
interaction with autonomous or semiautonomous physical systems such as
ground-based robots, unmanned aerial vehicles, and assistive
