The congress of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence (AI*IA)
is a
traditional two-yearly meeting of researchers working on theory and
in Artificial Intelligence. The 8th congress will take place in Pisa,
the editions of Trento (89), Palermo (91), Torino (93), Firenze (95), Roma
Bologna (99) and Bari (01). The congress will be centered on invited speaker
seminars, scientific paper talks, system and prototype demonstrations,
tutorials, panels and workshops on specific topics both on methods and on
innovative applications of artificial intelligence. We hope that the 2003
meeting will strengthen awareness that artificial intelligence is assuming a
central role in the competitive strategies of the present scenario of rapid
changes. Artificial intelligence can significantly support economic and
scientific development due to the rapidly emerging demand for innovative
technologies in many application areas.

Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

  AI architectures
  Automated reasoning
  Cognitive models
  Connectionist models
  Distributed AI
  Knowledge discovery
  Knowledge engineering
  Knowledge representation
  Intelligent interfaces
  Machine learning
  Model based reasoning
  Multi-agent systems
  Natural language processing
  Perception and vision
  Planning and scheduling

and, also, applications of AI in fields including Environment, Cultural
and Activities, Teaching, Medicine, Space sciences, Social services,
and financial systems, Information systems, World Wide Web and so on.
