This summer, the international scientific community for new technologies will attend a can’t-miss appointment at the International Convention Centre (CCIB) of Barcelona. From the 16th to the 22nd of July, the CCIB will host the 22nd International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI), the most important meeting worldwide for Artificial Intelligence (AI) experts, students and professionals. Participants from around the world will travel to the Catalan capital to get involved with the event’s conference program, which contains plenty of proposals outlining the key developments so far, and the future challenges of this new and exciting field.
During the week of IJCAI 2011, there will be similar “sister conferences” throughout the city, working together to create a huge interconnected event and interchange of knowledge.
Speeches and workshops are among the most interesting parts of the conference, allowing the public to participate. Topics include: from the basis of mathematics, models and methods, algorithms for classic planning, configuration, computing, the secrets of programming for AI, AI and logistics, etc; to the psychological aspects that spans topics such as reasoning, formal argumentation, different ways for the knowledge in AI and agents learning for human teachers, the decision making tools, the satisfaction depending on the probabilistic, etc.
Other speeches will present concepts such as promising AI applications to achieve an intelligent planet, or the applications of AI in the Space. Also, you can’t miss the important role of the Internet and new Web tools for AI development.
The participants will have the chance to attend unique events, some of them on cutting-edge topics. AI in videogames, multi-agent systems or Intelligent Security are only a few examples of the top-level content at IJCAI 2011.
The CCIB is located close to Poblenou beach, a perfect attraction to compliment the conference experience. Walking by the sea, you can enjoy the warmth of the Catalan coast summer.
Barcelona captivates from the very first moment thanks to its freshness and mixing of cultures, as well its attractive weather and its picturesque corners. It is a touristic marvel: the mark of the genius architect Gaudí, remains in the modernist walls that face the Passeig de Gracia in La Casa Batlló, or the colorful skin of the famous dragon in El Parc Güell.
You cannot miss Les Rambles either, a meeting point dressed as an impressionist catwalk from Plaça Catalunya to the port, with flower stalls and human statues tracing its silhouette. For a unique picture of the whole city, the romantic tourists can also choose the natural Montjuic hill for a superb viewpoint.
At the end of the day, you can complete your sight-seeing and conference activities with a relaxing moment in one of the several terraces and bars located near the sea or on the beach itself. Visitors of Barcelona cannot leave without tasting the Catalan cuisine, amid the smell of the sea salt, and the feeling of the sand covering their feet.
