Workshop series on Neural-Symbolic Learning and Reasoning
At Dagstuhl seminar 14381, Wadern, Germany, marking the tenth edition of the workshop on Neural-Symbolic Learning and Reasoning in September 2014, it was decided that Neural-Symbolic Learning and Reasoning should become an Association with a constitution, and a more formal membership and governance structure.
The object of the NeSy association is to promote research in neural-symbolic learning and reasoning, and communication and the exchange of best practice among associated research areas. As such, the NeSy association primarily conducts the annual workshop on Neural-Symbolic Learning and Reasoning (NeSy workshop), and promotes through the maintenance of the website http://www.neural-symbolic.org, its steering committee and the NeSy workshops, interactions with related associations such as IFCoLog, INNS, BCS, IEEE, ACM, AAAI, CogSci, BICA.
The Steering Committee (2014-2018) of the Neural-Symbolic Learning and Reasoning Association, which oversees the running of the workshop series with the same name is composed of:
- Artur d'Avila Garcez (President)
- Daniel Silver (Vice President)
- Pascal Hitzler
- Peter Földiák (Treasurer)
- Kai-Uwe Kühnberger
- Luis C. Lamb
- Luc de Raedt
We invite every researcher interested in the object of the NeSy association to become a member. Currently, membership is free. To apply for membership, please complete and submit the application form at http://staff.city.ac.uk/~aag/nesy.
The NeSy Steering Committee will make a decision about the outcome of your application usually within a few days from the submission of the application.
You are invited to join also the NeSy Google+ community at https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/118350808562167749910 and the LinkedIn community at https://www.linkedin.com/groups?home=&gid=4006768.
With best regards,

SIG Explainable AI
Quite frequently demands for better explainable and/or interpretable and/or comprehensible Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) systems are being put forward. The Special Interest Group on Explainable AI offers a forum for interaction and collaboration on topics relating to "explanation", "interpretability", and "comprehensibility" in the context of AI and ML, working towards a better understanding of what an explanation is when talking about intelligent systems, what it means to interpret or comprehend a system and its behaviour, and how human-machine interaction can take these dimensions into account.
