The Sixth Annual Knowledge-Based Software Engineering Conference (KBSE-91) was held at the Sheraton University Inn and Conference Center in Syracuse, New York, from Sunday afternoon, 22 September, through midday Wednesday, 25 September. The KBSE field is concerned with applying knowledge-based AI techniques to the problems of creating, understanding, and maintaining very large software systems.
The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, were delighted to host the joint ACM-BCS 2010 "Visions of Computer Science" conference, which was held at the Informatics Forum, Edinburgh University, between April 13-16 2010. Some of the best papers will appear in the ACM Digital Library and The Computer Journal, the archival research publication of the BCS.
"This comprehensive collection of essays presents the state of the art on this fascinating and challenging research topic. I recommend it to anyone who wants to understand how and why computers will eventually understand what it feels like to have a bad day at the office." Prices subject to change without notice. Since their inception in 1987, the Artificial Life meetings have grown from small workshops to truly international conferences, reflecting the field's increasing appeal to researchers in all areas of science.
Intelligent-agent technology is one of the most exciting, active areas of research and development in computer science and information technology today. The First Asia-Pacific Conference on Intelligent- Agent Technology (IAT'99) attracted researchers and practitioners from diverse fields such as computer science, information systems, business, telecommunications, manufacturing, human factors, psychology, education, and robotics to examine the design principles and performance characteristics of various approaches in agent technologies and, hence, fostered the cross-fertilization of ideas on the development of autonomous agents and multiagent systems among different domains.
MIT has awarded electrical engineering degrees for nearly 130 years, and our educational programs have been at the cutting edge since their inception. We provide an in-depth education in engineering principles built on mathematics, computation, and the physical and life sciences, and encourage our students to apply what they learn through projects, internships, and research. We succeed in our mission to produce graduates capable of taking leadership positions in the fields of electrical engineering and computer science and beyond.
