XVII Brazilian Symposium on Artificial Intelligence - SBIA'04
September 29 - October 1, 2004
São Luís, Maranhão - Brazil

SBIA, the Brazilian Symposium on Artificial Intelligence, is a biannual event intended to be the main forum of the AI community in Brazil. However since the 1990's it has also attracted researchers from all over the world, when it started to have an international program committee and also keynote invited speakers.

The SBIA 2004 is the 17th event of the series. Since 1995, SBIA has been accepting papers written and presented only in English, with proceedings being published in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series of Springer-Verlag (SBIA'95:991, SBIA'96:1159, SBIA'98:1515, SBIA'00:1952, SBIA'02:2507).
The SBIA 2004 is sponsored by the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC). It will be held in São Luis, the capital of the state of Maranhão in the northeast of Brazil, together with the Brazilian Symposium on Neural Networks.
This way, we expected you and both the AI and ANN communities to join us and make this event a very exciting one. Last but not least, besides the dense scientific programme we are preparing (technical papers, tutorials, invited talks, and student sections), there are still the cultural highlights of São Luis, as well as the natural beauties of one of the most wonderful places in Brazil: beaches, sun, and pristine water.
Hope to meet you there!
