Scandinavian AI Conference

Scandinavian AI Conference

The Scandinavian AI conference (SCAI) 2011 was held at NTNU in Trondheim from 24th to 26th of May. More than 50 participants attended the 11th iteration in the conference series.

According to the Anders Kofod-Petersen, Chair of the conference, the participants were  pleased with the conference and program. The keynotes and tutorials were especially popular.

The aim of SCAI is to be a meeting place for AI researchers from the Nordic countries, but the conference has attracted international researchers since the first conference was held in Tromsø (Norway) in 1988. This year people from Japan, Germany and the Czech Republic attended, but the peak in the demography chart was still from the Nordic countries.

The annual meetings of the Swedish Artificial Intelligence Society (SAIS) and the Norwegian Artificial Intelligence Society (NAIS) were co-located with the conference.

The conference was co-organized by the NAIS and NTNU. Staff members from the Intelligent Systems research group at our department, helped organize the conference. Professor Helge Langseth (in photo) was one of many who made the conference run smoothly.
