* FOUR COURSES from three diverse areas of the field:
* Multi-Agent Systems : From Practical Applications to Used Elements of Theory, by
Prof. Yves Demazeau from the LIG, Grenoble, France (morning)
* Data Mining and its application to medical data by Prof. Huei Diana Lee from
the Universidade Estadual do Oeste do Paraná, UNIOESTE, Brazil (morning).
* Models and Methods for Planning in Intelligent Systems, by Prof. Hector Geffner from
the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, Spain (afternoon).
* Ontologies by Prof. Giancarlo Guizzardi, from the Federal University of Espíritu Santo, Brazil (afternoon)
* SIX PLENARY TALKS to complement the theoretical aspect of the courses with
state of the art, groundbreaking applications of AI:
* Case-based reasoning applied to music and robot soccer, by Prof. Ramón López de Mántaras from the Artificial Intelligence Research Institute, Spain
* Managing knowledge and context, by Prof. Fausto Giunghiglia from the University of Trento, Italy.
* The Watson computer system and its underlying technology, by Prof. Eric Brown from Watson Technologies IBM.
* Multi-Agent Systems Organizations, by Prof. Jaime Sichman, from University of Sao Paulo, Brazil
* Automated planning and scheduling for space exploration, by Prof. Steve Chien from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, USA.
* Big Data, Lifelong Machine Learning and Transfer Learning by Prof. Qiang Yang from the Hong Kong University.
