10 September 2007, Foundations of Artificial Intelligence, Osnabrück

Date: Monday 10 September 2007
Location: Osnabrück
Deadline: 8 June 2007

Within the course of the last 50 years, Artificial Intelligence has developed into a major field of research with a multitude of facets and application areas. While, in general, Artificial Intelligence research is driven by application needs, it is nevertheless a fact that foundational questions and theoretical insights have always been one of the driving forces behind its development. This includes the quest for realising intelligent behaviour in artificial systems as envisioned in the early days of AI research. But it also comprises biological inspirations e.g. for robot design, artificial neural networks, or emergent intelligence, as well as logical underpinnings of automated deduc-tion and knowledge representation.

Indeed, formal and foundational aspects of artificial intelligence are being studied in many sub areas in order to serve application needs. It lies in the nature of such fundamental research that a critical mass of different formal perspectives can generate a cross-fertilization of ideas and applications. We therefore intend to bring together researchers working on foundational aspects of Artificial Intelligence across different communities, in order to stimulate an exchange of ideas and methods between them.
