This workshop will be collocated with the 19th International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI 2005), the world's premiere conference on AI. Participants in the workshop may wish to attend the full conference but will not be required to do so.

The venue will be Edinburgh, Scotland. This will be excellent time to visit the Scottish capital just prior to the start of the famous Edinburgh International Festival, and during the Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival. Participants are encouraged to plan to stay on after the workshop to enjoy the city and take advantage of these events.

The actual workshop will be held in the Abden House on the grounds of Edinburgh University.

The conference dinner (not included in the fees) will be held at a room in town on Sunday night.

Fees and Registration

CHANGE! (updated 21 May 2005) Because excessive workshop fees were to be charged for people not attending IJCAI, we have moved from being an official IJCAI workshop to being an official colocated event. Do NOT register for the workshop via IJCAI! A registration form was attached to your notification email (like the reviews). Please read both the attachments. If you did not submit a paper, it is unlikely we will have space for you to attend, but if you want to try, see papers and publications for how to apply.

Fees are in pounds sterling (here's a currency converter, the currency code for pounds is GBP). Early fees will apply until 1 June. Student fees require a letter of verification from the student's supervisor or Head of Department, or a photocopy of their photo student ID, to also be presented at the workshop.


Bursaries are on offer for students, you will get more details when you submit your registration form. If any non-students would like to be given special consideration for a bursary, please mention this in your registration.

The registration form also details accommodation options. Accomodation can be had cheaply from the University's nearby halls of residence. In addition, there are a large number of bed and breakfasts nearby (e.g. on Mayfield Road) of varying costs and quality, and hotels about a mile further away in the city centre.
