Reading Group on Planning and Search

Organizer: Dr. Robert Mattmüller

Time and Place

Time: Tuesday 16:00 (until June 18); Wednesday 15:00 (from June 26)
Place: Room 052 00-016 (meeting room of the Foundations of Artificial Intelligence and Software Engineering groups)

Description

In the reading group, we discuss current and classical research papers. The emphasis lies on work on action planning, search and related areas, but interesting papers from other areas are welcome. All participants can make recommendations for the reading list, from which one or more papers are selected for each meeting. Participants read the selected papers individually in preparation for the meeeting and discuss them during the meeting.

The target audience of the reading group consists of academic staff and interested guests, comparable to a staff seminar or a seminar in a graduate school. Students may feel free to participate, but should be aware that no ECTS points can be earned for the reading group.
