Workshops

Advances In Argumentation In Artificial Intelligence (AI^3)

The workshop aims at bringing together researchers involved in the field of argumentation from different perspectives, including computational, linguistic, philosophical and psychological aspects. Besides researchers having argumentation as a major research interest, scholars from research fields indirectly related to argumentation are particularly welcome, both to discuss foundations and issues in argumentation, and to present challenges and problems for which argumentation may represent a viable AI-paradigm.

Organizers:

  • Francesco Santini, University of Perugia
  • Alice Toniolo, University of St. Andrews

Fifth Italian Workshop on Artificial Intelligence for Ambient Assisted Living (AI*AAL.it 2019)

The AI*AAL.it workshop aims to 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.

8th Italian Workshop on Machine Learning and Data Mining (MLDM.it 2019)

This workshop aims at bringing together researchers actively involved in the fields of machine learning, data mining, deep learning, pattern recognition, and knowledge discovery. Besides traditional novel ML&DM technique presentations, the edition of this year focuses in particular on the presentation of new open problems and challenges for the ML&DM addressing the wider AI area and its applications, and on the discussion of the issues related to the Italian researchers opportunities in the context of the new national and European scenario for the research networks.

Organizers:

  • Alessio Micheli, University of Pisa
  • Claudio Gallicchio, University of Pisa

3rd Workshop on Natural Language for Artificial Intelligence (NL4AI-2019)

The goal of the NL4AI workshop is to explore the role of Natural Language and Natural Language Processing in Artificial Intelligence applications. ​We believe that new technological challenges and opportunities rise at the boundary between NLP and AI. On the one hand, AI applications benefit from a deeper understanding of problems related to Natural Language, and thus the integration of advanced NLP techniques. On the other hand, NLP benefits greatly from being used in in wider areas of AI where problems and methodologies related to NL can be evaluated in new contexts.

Organizers:

  • Mehwish Alam, FIZ Karlsruhe - Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure
  • Valerio Basile, University of Turin
  • Felice Dell’Orletta, CNR
  • Malvina Nissim, University of Groningen
  • Nicole Novielli, University of Bari

7th Italian Workshop on Planning and Scheduling (IPS)

Automated Planning and Scheduling is a historical and active branch of Artificial Intelligence. The workshop welcomes both theoretical and practical contributions in any aspect of automated planning and scheduling, with the purpose of encouraging the italian research community to share ideas and new trends on the field. The forum is an occasion not only to consolidate the community, but also to engage young and new researchers into the field.

Organizers:

  • Riccardo De Benedictis, ISTC-CNR
  • Andrea Micheli, FBK
  • Enrico Scala, FBK
  • Alessandro Umbrico, ISTC-CNR

Artificial Intelligence for Health (AIxHealth)

In recent years, Computational and Artificial Intelligence have been intensively used to improve patient care and to help doctors and health care professionals get better the quality and efficiency of services. This field of application is strongly developing, covering many relevant sectors of medicine, from diagnostics to health, and from wellness to smart devices. AI is becoming a necessary “core” of all the new applications in medicine, due to the capacity of these models of learning not only from experience but also from data, in many cases the so called big data. For example, AI today is used in many applications for Health and Wellness, Medical Diagnosis and Prognosis, to study drug design and antibiotic resistance, to analyze Neuro and Medical images, to design Brain-Computer Interfaces and Electronic Health Records, the new Surgery Robotics and to make the Personalized Medicine.

1st Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and fOrmal VERification, Logic, Automata, and sYnthesis (OVERLAY)

The rapid diffusion of Artificial Intelligence techniques in safety-critical sys- tems to address real world scenarios requires the design of reliable, robust, and verifiable methodologies. Therefore, the proposed solutions must guarantee some theoretical and practical properties to ensure those crucial features, entailing a set of challenges for the relevant scientific communities. The new group on Artificial Intelligence and fOrmal VERification, Logic, Automata, and sYnthesis (OVERLAY) is an Italian research initiative that aims at in- vestigating possible integrations of complementary research fields such as specification, verification, and synthesis of reactive systems, artificial intelli- gence techniques, controller synthesis, etc., to address such challenges. This first OVERLAY workshop aims at presenting the activities of the group and constituting a forum where relevant topics connected to the mutual influence between Artificial Intelligence and Formal Methods can be discussed.

Organizers:

  • Nicola Gigante, University of Udine
  • Federico Mari, University of Rome "Foro Italico"
  • Andrea Orlandini, ISTC-CNR

AI and Internet of Things (AI&IoT)

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is likely to be the best source of algorithms, technologies, methodologies and paradigms enabling the development of “smart” devices and systems. The "IoT & AI" workshop aims to explore the adaptation of existing AI techniques to the Internet of Things context as well as the development of new specific and original approaches. Innovative contributions for the development of intelligent IoT ecosystems, new business models and relevant experiences from successful smart applications are welcome.

Organizers:

  • Giancarlo Fortino, University of Calabria
  • Andrea Omicini, University of Bologna
  • Claudio Savaglio, University of Calabria
  • Giovanni Ciatto, University of Bologna

RCRA & RiCeRcA

The aim of RCRA and RiCeRcA 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. RCRA is focused on technical presentations, while RiCeRcA (in Italian) welcomes also group and project presentations, position papers and PhD thesis work.

Organizers:

  • Marco Maratea, University of Genova
  • Mauro Vallati, University of Huddlersfield

Workshop in AI and Robotics (AIRO)

The goal of AIRO 2019 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.
