26 January - 6 February 2009, Summer Schools in Logic and Learning, Canberra, Australia

Date: 26 January - 6 February 2009
Location: Canberra, Australia

One of the grand challenges in science and engineering is to build computer systems that are trustworthy and intelligent. While achieving this goal could be many decades away, computer systems are clearly getting smarter and more reliable year by year and human society is becoming more reliant on exploiting their increasing intelligence. Logic and machine learning are two indispensable parts of the efforts to meet this challenge. The Summer Schools in Logic and Learning bring together two annual summer schools in the area of logic and machine learning: the Logic Summer School and the Machine Learning Summer School.

The Logic courses will consist of short courses on aspects of pure and applied logic. The Machine Learning courses will consist of short courses on the theory and practice of machine learning, which combine deep theory from areas as diverse as Statistics, Mathematics, Engineering, and Information Technology with many practical and relevant real life applications. The courses will be taught by experts from Australia and overseas. The summer schools this year will also include a special track on Artificial Intelligence (AI), which will feature courses on aspects of both logic and machine learning. In addition to the scheduled courses, time will be set aside each day for practical classes, discussions and software demonstrations.

Deadline for early registration: 19 December 2008. For more information, an online registration form and a preliminary program, see http://ssll.cecs.anu.edu.au/
