From: Hilan Bensusan (
Subject: Workshop on Machine Learning and Philosophy of Science.

This is a reminder of the call for papers for the following European
Conference on Machine Learning Workshop:

Machine Learning as Experimental Philosophy of Science

Machine learning studies inductive strategies in algorithms. The
philosophy of science investigates inductive strategies as they appear
in scientific practice. Although the two disciplines have developed
largely independently, they share many of the same issues. This is
slowly coming to be recognized, as evidenced in the annual Uncertainty
in AI and AI and Statistics conferences. This workshop will explore the
extent to which the methods and resources of philosophy of science and
machine learning can inform one another.

Papers due: 8 June 2001
Notification: 25 June 2001
Camera-ready due: 13 July 2001
Workshop: 3 Sept 2001

We prefer papers to be submitted electronically in a postscript email
attachment to both organizers simultaneously: and

Only if strictly necessary, submissions may be sent alternatively as an
MS Word attachment. A last resort would be to mail or fax submissions
to the address below:

Subject: Congress on Autonomous Intelligent Systems.

ICAIS 2002: 1st Int. ICSC Congress on Autonomous Intelligent Systems
Deakin University, Waterfront Campus Geelong, Australia
12 - 15 February 2002

Autonomous intelligent systems can be described as intelligent entities
that are capable of independent action in dynamic, unpredictable
environments. This is a very fast growing research area attracting the
attention of many researchers around the globe. The aim of the
International Congress on Autonomous Intelligent Systems (ICAIS) is to
bring the researchers, system developers and users both from industry
and academia together to exchange their views and receive the very
latest information on the on-going research and development. This will
be carried out through a series of keynote addresses, technical
sessions, workshops and exhibitions.

Submission Deadline: July 31, 2001 (Extended)
Notification of Acceptance: October 15, 2001 (Extended)
Delivery of Manuscripts: November 30, 2001
Conference: February 12 - 15, 2002
