Highlights on ECCAI societies : AEPIA

The Spanish Association for Artificial Intelligence (AEPIA) was funded in 1983 aiming to encourage the development of Artificial Intelligence both in Spain and South America. AEPIA is member of the ECCAI and founder member of IBERAMIA, the Iberoamerican Conference on Artificial Intelligence. The association also supports several national and international events with high interest for the members (CAEPIA, TTIA, etc.).

The aims of AEPIA include creating and coordinating working groups; giving support to technology transference and entities (such as universities, R&D centers, enterprises, institutions, etc.) in order to contribute to the application of Artificial Intelligence techniques; and also giving support to students and researchers in technology, development, application and teaching issues.

Since 1997, AEPIA activities are managed through the association journal (Artificial Intelligence: Iberoamerican Journal on A.I.), which publishes threeor four issues per year, printing 450 numbers of each issue on average. AEPIA also coordinates the Artificial Intelligence distribution list INT-ARTIF (supported by RED-IRIS) and maintains a teaching resources repository about Artificial Intelligence.
