 ECAI 2000/PAIS 2000

 14th European Conference on Artificial Intelligence
 Prestigious Applications of Intelligent Systems

 Berlin, Humboldt University
 August 20-25, 2000

 http://www.ecai2000.hu-berlin.de

- -----------------------------------------------------------------

 LATE REGISTRATION DEADLINE 1st of August 2000

- -----------------------------------------------------------------

Organized by 
German Informatics Society (GI) and 
European Coordinating Committee for Artificial Intelligence (ECCAI)

Hosted by 
Humboldt University Berlin


 In this special turn of the century we invite you to celebrate 
 ECAI 2000 in Berlin. Being the fourteenth in a very successful
 series of European Conferences on Artificial Intelligence, 
 ECAI 2000 will offer a unique opportunity to bring industry and
 academics together to explore the full spectrum of Artificial
 Intelligence, from theory and methodology to its application in 
 commercial systems. 

 Respond to the call of the German Informatics Society (GI) and 
 the European Coordinating Committee for Artificial Intelligence, 
 the world's largest umbrella organization for AI, and meet well-
 known AI experts at Humboldt University Berlin, a University that 
 can proudly look back on almost 200 years of tradition and 29 
 associated Nobel prize winners.

 Since the year 2000 is a special year, we will make ECAI 2000 a
 very special conference. ECAI 2000 gathered 443 submissions from 
 which, however, only 139 have been accepted for presentation. 
 Although the majority of papers comes from Europe, there is a 
 significant number of papers from Australia, Asia, and North
 America, leading to a total of 42 contributing countries. 
 Furthermore, ECAI 2000 comprises six invited talks plus one
 public talk given by distinguished scientists, master-class lec-
 tures in 10 tutorials and serious discussions of hot new research 
 topics in 29 workshops.

 The real success of Artificial Intelligence will be measured by
 the applications that use the technology rather than the techno-
 logy itself. For the first time, ECAI comprises the Prestigious 
 Applications of Intelligent Systems sub-conference (PAIS 2000), 
 which is the first major European showcase of beneficial solu-
 tions for industry and commerce based on AI technologies. 

 ECAI and PAIS are accompanied by an exhibition concept that re-
 flects AI's history, its gaining grounds in the 20th century and 
 its progress paths envisioned into the 21st century. We also plan
 to have a rather unusual sidetrack meant to attract layman such 
 that ECAI 2000 becomes an event in Berlin and not only one of 
 diverse scientific congresses hardly noticed by the public. In so
 far, we aim at presenting AI on ECAI 2000 in a very broad scope 
 in order to show its relation to other classical and advanced 
 IT topics.

 In the following we will present a short glance at the program
 of ECAI 2000. We will also provide some information on registra-
 tion deadlines and fees. More detailed information is available
 on the conference home page at
