The 21st EPIA Conference on Artificial Intelligence takes place at IST
The 21st edition of the EPIA Conference on Artificial Intelligence (EPIA 2022) started today at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), taking place until 02 September.
The EPIA conference promotes research in all areas of AI, covering both theoretical/foundational issues and applications, and the scientific exchange among researchers, engineers and practitioners in related disciplines. This year’s keynote addresses include João Gama’s Current Trends in Learning from Data Streams (University of Porto), Luc De Raedt’s From Probabilistic Logics to Neuro-Symbolic Artificial Intelligence (KU Leuven) and Iryna Gurevych’s Comment – Link – Revise: Towards a General Framework for Modelling Interconnected Texts (Technical University of Darmstadt).
The 2022 edition of EPIA was put together by an international body of researchers that includes Program Chair Ana Paiva (INESC-ID researcher in the Artificial Intelligence for People and Society (AIPS) Research Area and Full Professor at IST) and Local Organisers Alberto Sardinha (INESC-ID AIPS researcher and Assistant Professor at IST) and Bruno Martins (INESC-ID researcher in the Human Language Technologies Research Area and Associate Professor at IST).
A well-established European conference, EPIA 2022 is hosted, as in previous editions, with the patronage of the Portuguese Association for Artificial Intelligence (APPIA). INESC-ID is one of the supporters of this conference.

OLISSIPO Workshop: “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango”
The 3rd Edition of the workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” will take place online on November 14-15, 2023.
The topic of the workshop is metabolism in general. As in the previous cases, a special focus will be placed on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects of metabolism, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
More details will soon be provided but initial information may be already found here.
- Barbara Bakker (Faculty of Medical Sciences, University of Groningen, The Netherlands)
- Igor Cestari (Institute of Parasitology, McGill University, Montréal, Canada)
- Vassily Hatzimanikatis (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland)
- Steffen Klamt (Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems, Magdeburg, Germany)
- Ina Koch (Goethe Universität, Frankfurt am Main, Germany)
- Laura-Isobel McCall (San Diego State University, US)
Besides the talks given by the above Keynote speakers, there will be two sessions, one per day, of 30 minutes each, dedicated to a discussion of some specific open questions. More details on these will be provided very soon.The workshop will take place in the afternoons, from 2pm to 5:30pm CET time.
