Reading Group on Planning and Search

In the reading group, we discuss current and classical research papers. The emphasis lies on work on action planning, search and related areas, but interesting papers from other areas are welcome. All participants can make recommendations for the reading list, from which one or more papers are selected for each meeting. Participants read the selected papers individually in preparation for the meeting and discuss them during the meeting.

The target audience of the reading group consists of researchers and interested guests, comparable to a post-graduate seminar. Students at all levels may feel free to participate, but should be aware that only PhD students enrolled in Basel can obtain ECTS points in the reading group.

Time and Place

Time: Thursday, 16:15
Place: University of Basel, Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, Spiegelgasse 1, room 06.011
Online participation: The link to the zoom meeting has been shared on the reading group mailing list.

Mailing List and Discord Server

The papers covered by the reading group are announced on the reading group mailing list and the reading group discord server. To protect against spam, we do not provide links here. To obtain access, please contact one of the members of the Artificial Intelligence research group.
