AIRO – Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and Robotics

The goal of AIRO 2017 is to foster the discussion about the use of Artificial Intelligence methods to design intelligent robots. AI principles and methods play a crucial role in several areas of the robotics research (e.g., field, service, social robotics, etc.) and are pervasively exploited at various level of robot architectures. We argue that robot intelligence is a property arising from the interaction between robots and their environments.

AI* – 3rd Italian Workshop on Artificial Intelligence for Ambient Assisted Living

The AI* workshop aims to establish a stable forum collecting knowledge, experiences and trends showing how Artificial Intelligence (AI) could add value to the promotion of a new generation of innovative support systems in Ambient Assisted Living domains. Contributions from cross-disciplinary approaches and stockholders involved in the ageing society are also welcome, to support AI approaches to be a player in the future of AAL.

AI*CH – Artificial Intelligence for Cultural Heritage

Following a consolidated tradition, this Workshop once again aims to represent an opportunity for comparing possible contributions of artificial intelligence and other innovative technologies to conservation, valorisation and enjoyment of cultural heritage. So, this will be a meeting point where different aspects of AI will be analysed to improve the way cultural assets are managed and delivered to the general public.

AI^3 – Advances In Argumentation In Artificial Intelligence

Argumentation is the study of the processes and activities involving the production and exchange of arguments, where arguments are attempts to persuade someone or something by giving reasons for accepting a particular conclusion as evident.  Given that the study of argumentation is inherently interdisciplinary, the goal of the workshop is to stimulate discussions and promote scientific collaboration among researchers involved in the field of argumentation from different perspectives, including computational, linguistic, philosophical and psychological aspects.

CeX – Comprehensibility and Explanation in AI and ML

Quite frequently demands for better comprehensible and explainable Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) systems are being put forward. The cex workshop sheds light on notions such as “comprehensibility” and “explanation” in the context of AI and ML, working towards a better understanding of what an explanation is when talking about intelligent systems, what it means to comprehend a system and its behaviour, and how human-machine interaction can take these dimensions into account.

DART – 10th International Workshop on Information Filtering and Retrieval

DART 2017 intends to provide a more interactive and focused platform for researchers and practitioners for presenting and discussing new and emerging ideas. It is focused on researching and studying new challenges in intelligent information filtering and retrieval. In particular, DART aims to investigate novel systems and tools to web scenarios and semantic computing. In so doing, DART will contribute to discuss and compare suitable novel solutions based on intelligent techniques and applied in real-world applications.

GenSW – Generalizing knowledge: from Machine Learning and Knowledge Representation to the Semantic Web

The workshop is meant to be a forum for scientific exchange among researchers interested in the topic of generalization of knowledge descriptions represented in standard Semantic Web representation languages. The workshop addresses an interdisciplinary research field in Artificial Intelligence, at the intersection of the Semantic Web with Machine Learning and Knowledge Representation.

NL4AI – Workshop on Natural Language for Artificial Intelligence

The goal of the NL4AI workshop is to explore the area situated at the intersection between Natural Language Processing and Artificial Intelligence. The workshop aims at providing a broad overview of recent activities in both fields in Italy. During the workshop, both students and researchers will have the opportunity to participate in a unique forum where a number of relevant initiatives for the Italian community will be discussed.

RCRA – International Workshop on “Experimental Evaluation of Algorithms for Solving Problems with Combinatorial Explosion”

Many problems in Artificial Intelligence show an exponential explosion of the search space. Although stemming from different research areas in AI, such problems are often addressed with algorithms that have a common goal: the effective exploration of huge state spaces.  Scope of the workshop is fostering the cross-fertilisation of ideas stemming from different areas, proposing benchmarks for new challenging problems, comparing models and algorithms from an experimental viewpoint, and, in general, comparing different approaches with respect to efficiency, problem modelling, and ease of development.
