From 4th to 6th of June, the University of Salamanca will be the headquarters of a new edition of PAAMS (, international congress about Artificial Intelligence where more than 300 researchers from all over the world are participating. BISITE, the Bioinformatics, Intelligent computing Systems and educational Technology research group will be organizing this event.

The conference, which is now in its 12th edition, has been celebrated since more than 10 years ago in Salamanca and in it, experts in practical agent applications and multi-agent systems (system networks interacting to each other in complex actions development) get together.

From 4th to 6th of June, the University of Salamanca welcomes PAAMS: an international congress about Artificial Intelligence where Geminoid HI-4, the fourth version of the ultra-realistic robot capable of talking and showing happiness and concern expressions trough facial motions, will participate actively. The android has been created by the team leaded by Hiroshi Ishiguro, full professor at the University of Osaka and also leader of the Advanced Telecommunications Laboratory with his name in Japan.

Leandro Nunes de Castro is a professor at Mackenzie Presbyterian University. He is the director of the Natural Computing Laboratory, where he works on the development of computing tools based on natural phenomena to solve complex real-world problems. He has been in Salamanca since January to work with the BISITE research team.

Natural Computing can be used to analyze the data used by researchers in the study of neural behavior; for example, to study the electrical signals that can predict whether a person will experience an epileptic seizure...

With only four months to go, the FUSION 2014 Conference, which will be held July 7 – 10, 2014 in Salamanca, continues with the preparations required to ensure its success.

FUSION is an international event which features the participation of hundreds of experts in Computer Sciences from around the world specializing in the management and optimization of data. Each year the conference is held in a different city, and on a different continent. After being hosted in Chicago 2011, Singapore 2012, and Istanbul last year, the event returns to Europe and will be held, for the first time, in Spain.
