Bulletin #2, March 2003

EDITORIAL /community/ noun, A group of people having common interests, for example in work.

ECCAI bring together the AI community in Europe, possibly the largest such technical AI community in the world. It should be remembered that we are part of the community to share knowledge, to advance our knowledge and help others to advance their knowledge. Our aim is scientific interaction and dialogue. But don't be a passive member, take a positive step to participate in the community and to enhance the scientific dialogue.

Rob Milne, ECCAI Chair

NEWS from the ECCAI board

  • ECCAI fellows

Each year ECCAI honours a number of its Societies' members who have strongly contributed to the European AI community, and probably wider for, for several years. Nominations are now sought from the member societies who haven't already sent 2003 nominations.

Deadline is extended to the end of April 2003, but contact Dr. Robert Milne if there are any complications. See for fuller instructions.
Now is your chance to honour members who have made a strong contribution.
