4th Workshop AAIP 2011
The 4th Workshop on Approaches and Applications of Inductive Programming will take place on July 19, 2011, in Odense, Denmark. Co-located events are the 13th International ACM SIGPLAN Symposium on Principles and Practice of Declarative Programming (PPDP 2011) and the 21st International Symposium on Logic-Based Program Synthesis and Transformation (LOPSTR 2011).
Paper submissions are due on April 3, 2011.
PhD Position: Automatic Programming
Östfold University College, Halden, Norway invites applications for a Ph. D. position in automatic programming, which is an area of machine learning where algorithms are synthesized by computers. To find out more about automatic programming, please look at http://www.inductive-programming.org The scholarship covers three years of full time research or alternatively four years with 25% teaching. The Ph. D. candidate is expected to work on applications of automatic programming, in particular automatic improvement of algorithms that have been well designed but still have substantial room for improvement. Here are some examples of algorithm design areas where automatic programming has been successfully applied at Östfold University College during the last three years.
- Segmentation of images using pulse-copuled neural networks.
- Controlling steering, gas and breaking for an autonomous vehicle.
- Improving tabu search for combinatorial optimization.
- Pruning of decision trees for data mining.
- Automatic adaption of physical models and simulations to measurement data.
- Optimization of control algorithms.
- Automatic improvement of algorithms for NP hard problems.
AAIP 09 deadline extension
The submission deadline for AAIP 09 has been extended to May 25th, 2009.
Mailing List problems fixed
Due to an Apache bug our mailing list didn't work properly. This should be fixed now. If you still encounter problems, please let us know (contact the admin).
Thanks to our project student Thomas Hieber we are glad to announce further progress iat one of our construction sites. He as updated the systems' section and started to build up a repository of example problems. A first set of systems is already compared in a uniform framework. Everybody who is missing a/his/her system is highly encouraged to contribute.
AAIP '09 accepted
The next workshop on Approaches and Applications of Inductive Programming 2009 (AAIP'09) will be held in conjunction with the 14th ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP 2009). Detailed information can be found at the workshop homepage.
AAIP '09 --- Call for Sites
Call for Sites for the Workshop on Approaches and Applications of Inductive Programmin 2009 is open. Comments and suggestions can be posted at the bulletin board.
Bulletin Board online
We set up a blog as bulletin board for our homepage. You can access it under inductive-programming.org/IPblog. We will post announcements and discussions there.
New IP Logo
We are proud to present our new IP logo. It depicts the stylised acronym for Inductive Programming, with the letters I and P overlay on their stems. Circles emerging from the bottom to the top of the stem symbolise the induction from examples. The bowl of the P is an arrow pointing backwards to the first emerging circle representing recursion and loops.
We also adjusted the whole appearence of our site. Thanks to Sanne Grabisch http://ideal.istik.de helping with the layout and especially for designing this fantastic logo.
The list of publications has been updated. Thanks to Ute Schmid for providing the ip-related part of her bibliography. If you want to contribute or you think papers are missing then please send a message with the BibTex entries to the admin.
People Section finished
The 'People' section has been finished. There an overview of researchers working in the fieled of IP can be found.
