Nandu, Picture from
     CD Patagonia Interactiva The II Workshop on Artificial Intelligence (advances and trends in AI for problem solving) brings together researchers of the Latinamerican and international AI community who have active research lines on search techniques applicable to AI or strong interest in knowing about recent developements.

Workshop topics include, but are not limited to, the following research subjects:

  • improvement of known techniques such as Evolutionary Algorithms, Tabu Search, Simulated Annealing, Hybrid Methods, Multiagent systems, Ant Colony Optimization, Iterated Local Search, Swarm Intelligence, etc..
  • development of new or hybrid approaches.
  • innovative applications of the AI techniques to tackle challenging problems (real-world applications or theoretical).
  • enhancement of the understanding of algorithms' performance.
  • advances in traditional AI search techniques like methods based on backtracking or branch and bound.
We expect to have a half-day tutorial. More information will be added as soon as it is available, so please check for updates.

Participants will be selected based on refereed submissions. The number of participants is limited. All individuals interested in attending must indicate this by either submitting a paper or requesting attendance.
