2-week visit at the NII Tokyo: Dagstuhl-Seminar Presentation, Recommender-System and Machine-Learning Research, …

Published by Joeran Beel on

From the 19th of June until the 2nd of July 2018, I am in Japan at the National Institute of Informatics (NII). It is my first visit as Visiting Professor at the NII, and I am working with Professor Akiko Aizawa on a recommender-system and machine-learning project. Besides that work, there are many interesting presentations and other visitors at the NII. Among others, Prof. Dr. Raimund Seidel is visiting. Prof. Seidel is the organizer of the prestigious Dagstuhl seminar. Dagstuhl enables leading researchers in computer science meet for a few days to discuss the latest advancements and challenges in their fields. The NII is organizing a similar seminar series, the Shonan seminars, and Prof. Seidel shared his experience with organizing the Dagstuhl in a presentation titled “How Dagstuhl meetings have changed and remained the same over the years.” 

Prof. Seidel (Saarland University): "How Dagstuhl meetings have changed and remained the same over the years."
