1. International workshops from JSAI

JSAI Annual conferences have been organized since 1987 to enhance
studies on artificial intelligence, mainly of Japanese domestic
researchers, with sessions mostly made of presentations/discussions
in Japanese.

The presentations in these series of events became the seeds of
various later success of basic and applied studies, not only in the
area of AI but also to authorized and newly recognized relevant areas,
e.g. successful business applications, robot soccer games etc.

JSAI2001 will be the first JSAI conference holding international
sessions and international workshops, co-located with the main
conference. This aims at having people looking at various current AI
studies/trends from various aspects stimulate each other, in an
environment where new meaningful directions are desired by attendants.

Workshops are intended to focus attentions to specific research issues/
topics, and to informal and exciting presentations and discussions on
problems important even though not authorized, and ideas interesting
even though not yet established. Rather than accepting matured results,
we would like to supply places to make new ideas and new meaningful
directions grow.
