Workshop: Colloquium of the Collaborative Research Center 588 "Humanoid Robots - Learning and Cooperating Multimodal Robots"
organized by: Rüdiger Dillmann, Tamim Asfour, Nikolaus Vahrenkamp
The Collaborative Research Center 588 (CRC 588) presents its current research activities and results towards the realization of humanoid robots, which are able to act and interact in human-centered environments. In this workshop, presentations of the different research areas will be given and discussed. The presentations will deal with aspects of learning, multimodal interaction and dialog, human motion analysis, mechatronics, control and system integration in the CRC. In addition, live demonstrations, in particular of the ARMAR humanoid robots interacting with humans, grasping and manipulating objects, and navigating in a kitchen environment will be shown. Finally, invited experts will discuss and present their position statements regarding challenges and future research directions in the area of humanoid robotics.
Workshop: Context Aware Intelligent Assistance (CAIA)
organized by: Stefan Mandl, Bernd Ludwig, Florian Michahelles
Recently, a new area of research is emerging around innovative mobile applications in realistic and complex environments. This research is influenced by the fields of Intelligent Systems, Location Based Services, Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing, Recommendation Systems, Context Aware Systems, Human-Computer, and several others. Therefore we think the time is ripe to bring together researchers of those and related fields in order to foster the development of context aware mobile intelligent assistance and services.
Workshop: Knowledge Engineering and Software Engineering (KESE)
organized by: Grzegorz J. Nalepa
Intelligent systems have been successfully developed in various domains based on techniques and tools from the fields of knowledge engineering and software engineering. Thus, declarative software engineering techniques have been established in many areas, such as knowledge systems, logic programming, constraint programming, and lately in the context of the Semantic Web and business rules.The sixth workshop on Knowledge Engineering and Software Engineering (KESE6) wants to bring together researchers and practitioners from fields of software engineering and artificial intelligence, as well as the Semantic Web community. The intention is to give ample space for exchanging latest research results as well as knowledge about practical experience. The previous KESE Workshops were annually organized at KI conferences.
Workshop: New Challenges in Neural Computation
organized by: Barbara Hammer, Thomas Villmann
Neural computation and biologically inspired data processing constitute essential topics in artificial intelligence accompanied by a well established theoretical foundation and numerous successful applications. Caused by an increasing complexity of the involved data and underlying tasks, modern information processing continues to pose challenges to the field which are far from being solved. The goal of the workshop is to figure out paradigms, concepts, and models to extend neural systems to these situations and to identify good benchmark scenarios in which to test advanced capacities of model systems.
Workshop: Planen, Scheduling und Konfigurieren, Entwerfen (PuK)
organized by: Jürgen Sauer
The PuK workshop is the regular meeting of the special interest group on planning, scheduling, design and configuration within the AI section of the GI. In 2006 it could celebrate its 20th anniversary. As in previous years the PuK workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners of the areas of planning, scheduling, design and configuration. It provides a forum for the exchange of ideas, evaluations and experiences especially in the use of AI techniques within these application and research areas.
Tutorial: Robot learning
organized by: Jan Peters
Autonomous robots that can assist humans in situations of daily life have been a long standing vision of artificial intelligence, robotics, and cognitive sciences. A first step towards this goal is to create robots that can learn tasks triggered by environmental context or higher level instruction. To enable scientists an easier entry into this field, this tutorial will present an overview over the state of the art. It will cover both real-world problems and research opportunities for a machine learning researchers who are willing to enter the area of robot learning. Empirical evaluations on several anthropomorphic robot systems illustrate the effectiveness.
Workshop: Self-X in Engineering
organized by: Jörg Donoth, Bernd Kleinjohann, Philipp Adelt
Many modern products are based on the close interaction of mechanics, electronics and information technology, which is expressed by the term mechatronics. The integration of information technology and artificial intelligence enables new perspectives: engineering applications obtaining self-x-properties such as self-healing, self-coordination, self-organization or self-optimization. The intention of this workshop is to join scientists and practitioners working on the implementation of methods from artificial intelligence in classical engineering disciplines.
Workshop: Behaviour Monitoring and Interpretation (BMI)
organized by: Björn Gottfried, Hamid Aghajan
While technological advances in sensing and processing have ushered in an unprecedented opportunity for realizing behaviour monitoring applications, much effort remains needed for the development of methods to integrate and exploit the available data for addressing specific applications. In addition to the general BMI topic of this workshop, part of this year's workshop features a thematic focus section on "User Behaviour Modeling". Prospective authors are encouraged to submit a paper on the general BMI topic or contribute a more specific paper on "User Behaviour Modeling".
