Bulletin #3, September 2009



2009 ECCAI General Assembly

The 2009 ECCAI General Assembly took place on August 28th during ACAI 2009. Details on the topics discussed are found in the minutes.

ECCAI Dissertation Award

This year 11 nominations were received. The recipient of the 2008 ECCAI Dissertation Award is Steven Schockaert, Ghent University, for his thesis "Reasoning about Fuzzy Temporal and Spatial Information from the Web”. In addition, an honourable mention was granted to Christian Plagemann, Albert-Ludwigs-University Freiburg, for his thesis: "Gaussian Processes for Flexible Robot Learning".

Job Corner

13 PhD Studentships and 3 Postdocs in Developmental Robotics (RobotDoc ITN)

To start 1st January 2010 RobotDoc (Robotics for Development of Cognition) is a multi-national doctoral training network for the interdisciplinary training on developmental cognitive robotics. The RobotDoc network consists of an excellent balance of academic and industrial partners, and of European and international laboratory leaders in developmental cognitive robotics. The network activities will have a significant impact on the career perspectives of the Fellows through training opportunities on industrial and academic research projects and skills.

This network is funded by the European Union Marie Curie program ITN Initial Training Network. Further information is found at the RobotDoc web site.
