Alan Bundy symposium - a celebration

http://dream.inf.ed.ac.uk/events/bundy-symposium/

We are holding a symposium to celebrate Alan Bundy's 60th birthday, to
be held on July 13th and 14th this summer.

The broad range of Alan's research interests will be reflected in the
invited talks by top international researchers who have worked closely
with Alan over the years: Jrg Siekmann, Fausto Giunchiglia, Frank van
Harmelen, Luigia Aiello, Chris Mellish, Dave Robertson, Stan Wainer and
Alan Smaill. There will be public lectures on the Future of AI and many
opportunities for informal conversation as well as round table
discussions. This will also be the first event showcasing the new
University of Edinburgh Informatics Forum.

Attendance is free and there will be a celebratory dinner on July 13th
and a ceilidh on July 14th.  We have funding for PhD students from AISB
and from EPSRC to cover accommodation and travel.  Further information
and registration is available online at
http://dream.inf.ed.ac.uk/events/bundy-symposium/.  Any questions
concerning the event can be sent to Sofi Freijeiro-Mato
(sfmato@inf.ed.ac.uk).

We hope to see you in Edinburgh this summer.
