Bulletin #1, January 2003


From the summit of Aconcagua, (6968m) in Argentina, ECCAI President Rob Milne wishes all members of ECCAI member societies a very Happy New Year.
Work in the field of Artificial Intelligence is never easy, but like climbing a big mountain, progress is made one step at a time and eventually one reaches the goal!

Rob Milne, ECCAI Chair

    ECCAI Conferences

    - ACAI'03:

    July 27 - August 6, 2003
    International University Bremen (IUB), Germany

    The main theme of the ACAI'03 is Advanced Robotics with a particular focus on

    • Humanoids and Cognitive Robotics
    • Multi Robot Teams and Cooperation
    • Underwater Robotics

    These three fields are at the forefront of research in robotics. Furthermore, they are strongly interconnected with AI. Especially in respect to their main challenge, namely the creation of truly autonomous systems.

    Distinguished scientist give an in depth introduction to the different areas in invited talks and in tutorial sessions. The ACAI'03 also features hands-on sessions, where the participants can work with various robot platforms from the different fields. There are also student sessions where the participants have the possibility to present their own work. For this purpose, students are invited to submit a paper.

    Accommodation and boarding is directly on-site at the green and friendly campus of the International University Bremen. The city of Bremen is located in the north of Germany near the coast. Daily nonstop air service to many EU and overseas cities are available from the nearby airport of Bremen. IUB is also easily accessed via motorways and by train. There is the possibility of support for participants upon application.

    Important Dates:

    Participants interested in presenting their work in the students sessions should submit an extended abstract of up to 1000 words by April 30, 2003. If this extended abstract deals with research in the scope of the ACCAI, it may be identical to the one submitted with the application for support. The notification of acceptance is sent by May 15, 2003. A final version of an 8 page paper is due on June 30, 2003. The paper will be included in the ACAI proceedings.
