How to get to PLG


Reinforcement learning (RL) is a growing research area. To build an European RL community and give visibility to the current situation in the old continent, we are running a now biennial series of workshops. EWRL-1 took place in Brussels, Belgium (1994), EWRL-2 in Milano, Italy (1995), EWRL-3 in Rennes, France (1997), EWRL-4 in Lugano, Switzerland (1999), and EWRL-5 in Utrecht, the Netherlands (2001). EWRL-6 will take place in Nancy, France.

The workshop will feature a plenary talk by Bernard Walliser, professor at Ecole Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées and Ecole Polytechnique (Paris). He is also research director of the ECCO group (CNRS). He is working on cognitive economics and game theory.

The rest of the two-day workshop will be dedicated to presentations given by selected participants. Presentation length will be determined once we have some feedback on the number of participants.

The number of participants will be limited. Access will be restricted to active RL researchers and their students. Please communicate as soon as possible, and in any case before June 13, 2003, your intention to participate by means of the intention form attached below and include an abstract of max. 2 pages. The extended abstract will appear in a (small) proceedings.

An inscription fee of euros 200 (only euros 100 for students) will cover local organization expenses, lunch, coffee breaks, the proceedings, and a social dinner on Thursday evening.
