Workshop programme of ECAI 2010 announced

It is my pleasure to announce the Workshop Programme of ECAI-2010, the
19th European Conference on Artificial Intelligence, to be held in on
16-20 August 2010 in Lisbon, Portugal.

ECAI-2010 will have 21 satellite workshops, to take place during the
first two days of the conference, in parallel with an extensive tutorial
programme. The workshop programme covers a wide spectrum of research in
AI and will be of interest to both theoreticians and practitioners.

Information regarding the individual workshops is available via the
ECAI-2010 website. Most workshops operate with paper submission
deadlines around the beginning of May.

Best wishes,
Ulle Endriss
(ECAI-2010 Workshop Chair)
