Benefits of signed-up users!
Founded in 1988, the Hellenic Artificial Intelligence Society (EETN) is a non profit scientific organization devoted to organizing and promoting AI (Artificial Intelligence) research in Greece and abroad. Since its establishment, EETN has participated in the organization of various national and international events related to AI and its subfields. EETN is also interested in promoting AI in higher education and in exploiting AI research results by commercial organizations. The recent, rapid growth of the Internet and the World Wide Web has intensified the need for intelligent information systems and increased commercial interest in the area of AI.
Since 1996, EETN is a member of the European Coordinating Committee for Artificial Intelligence (ECCAI), whose international prestige is similar to the one of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI). EETN's participation in ECCAI, as an equal society member, as well as the organization of EETN conferences (SETN), workshops and summer schools has significantly upgraded its role.
The highest authority in EETN is the General Assembly, which is convened normally once every year and exceptionally when it is needed. It consists of the regular members, who have paid their subscription fees. It is considered to be in quorum when 50% + 1 of the regular members (having completed their economical obligations to Society) are present.
Local groups of EETN can be established in any city in Greece or abroad, by at least 10 regular members who reside in the corresponding city region. There can be only one local group in a city. Every local group has a representative, who must also participate in the General Assembly. Until now the bigger local groups are situated in Athens, Thessaloniki and Patra. There are also smaller groups in Ioannina, Kavala, Corfu, Samos, Chios, Syros, Orestiada, Chania and Irakleio.
The resources of EETN are:
- Annual subscriptions of members and registration fees of new members.
- Exceptional contributions of members.
- Income from the publication/disposal of magazines.
- Participation fees for Seminars, Conferences etc.
- Subsidies, sponsorings, donations and bequests.
- All-nature economic aids or contributions.
EETN member Manolis Koubarakis has been appointed as ECCAI Fellow. Congratulations to him!!
ECCAI is the European Coordinating Committee for Artificial Intelligence. The ECCAI Fellows Program has been started in 1999 to recognize individuals who have made significant, sustained contributions to the field of artificial intelligence (AI) in Europe. The ECCAI Fellows Program honors only a very small percentage of the total membership of all ECCAI member societies (up to a maximum of 3%).
It is worth underscoring how it is the third time that an EETN is nominated as a Fellow, the previous ones being the previous ones being Constantine Spyropoulos, Grigorios Antoniou, and John Mylopoulos. See complete ECCAI fellows list here.
Αγαπητά μέλη της ΕΕΤΝ,
Εκ μέρους του ΔΣ της ΕΕΤΝ, είμαι στην ιδιαίτερα ευχάριστη θέση να σας ανακοινώσω ότι μετά από πρόταση του ΔΣ, ο καθηγητής του ΕΚΠΑ κος Μ. Κουμπαράκης επελέγη από το ECCAI Board ως ECCAI Fellow. Όπως γνωρίζετε η επιλογή αυτή είναι ιδιαίτερα αυστηρή και προκρίνει ανθρώπους με σημαντική συμβολή στην Τεχνητή Νοημοσύνη στην Ευρώπη αλλά και γενικότερα.
Να αναφέρω επίσης ότι από την ΕΕΤΝ ήδη 4 μέλη της έχουν αξιωθεί της επιλογής αυτής: ο Κ. Σπυρόπουλος, ο Γ. Αντωνίου, o Γ. Μυλόπουλος και τώρα ο Μ. Κουμπαράκης. Συγχαρητήρια στον Μανώλη, η αναγνώριση αυτή είναι αντάξια του έργου του! Εύχομαι (με βάσιμη αισιοδοξία) και άλλα μέλη της ΕΕΤΝ να διακριθούν με παρόμοιο τρόπο στα επόμενα έτη.
