The 22nd Benelux Conference on Artificial Intelligence (BNAIC 2010)
Luxembourg, October 25-26 2010

BNAIC is an international scientific conference for research in Artificial

to promote research in AI among Benelux AI researchers, scientists and
engineers in related disciplines. This year we are delighted to bring BNAIC
for the first time to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. According to the
success of previous years, BNAIC 2010 will include invited speakers,
research presentations and project demonstrations.
