This year the following join the distinguished list of EurAI fellows
Ulle Endriss is a professor at the ILLC with the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Ulle Endriss played a pivotal role in establishing the field of computational social choice. He was pivotal in three initiatives that were very important to the computational social choice community: the Handbook of Computational Social Choice, the COST Action on Computational Social Choice, which ran from 2012 to 2016, and the online computational social choice seminar. Ulle Endriss’s service is not limited to the computational social choice community; in 2021 he was the program chair of the AAMAS conference and he will be programme chair for ECAI in 2024. He has won best paper at the AAMAS conference twice (2011 and 2016), and was a recipient of the IJCAI/JAIR Best paper award in 2016.
Piotr Faliszewski is a Professor at the Department of Computer Science with AGH University of Science and Technology, Kraków, Poland. He is one of the leaders in the field of computational social choice, and he has made numerous conceptual, theoretical and methodological contributions to this field. Piotr Faliszewski has been awarded an European Research Council Consolidator grant (ERC Consolidator) in 2021. He is the recipient of the Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in 2018. Piotr Faliszewski was the chair The 21st International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems (AAMAS)in 2022. He is the associate editor of Artificial Intelligence, the Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research and Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems.
Joao Marques-Silva is a ResearchDirector at the IRIT, CNRS, Toulouse, France. He is a Research Chair of the AI Interdisciplinary Institute ANITI (Artificial and Natural Intelligence Toulouse Institute), funded by the French program “Investing for the Future-PIA3” and the CNRS PI in the EU project TAILOR. Joao Marques-Silva is an outstanding researcher whose work on automated theorem proving is widely cited. He is recipient of the Computer Aided Verification (CAV) 2009 Award. Joao Marques Silva's more recent work focusses on a topic that is of fundamental importance for machine learning - the use of theorem proving in order to explain the outcome of machine learning algorithms.
Ann Nowé is the director of the AI lab of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium. She is also a lead scientific advisor of the FARI institute (www.fari.brussels), which aims to foster the adoption and governance of AI in an ethical and responsible way. Ann Nowé is a renowned figure in the AI field, known not just in Europe but globally for her exceptional work in multi-agent reinforcement learning and in multi-objective optimization. Ann Nowé was program chair for the International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems (AAMAS) in 2021 and she is the general chair of ECAI2023.
Francesco Scarcello is the vice Rector and delegate for Teaching of the University of Calabria, Italy. He is a professor of computer engineering at the Department of ComputerEngineering, Modelling, Electronics and Systems.
Francesco Scarcello is recognized as a leading scientist in database theory and in Constraint Satisfaction Problems (CSPs), answer set programming, and
algorithmic game theory. He has won the Best Paper Award at the 5th International Conference on Logic Programming and Non-monotonic Reasoning (LPNMR’99), the 2008 IJCAI-JAIR Best Paper Prize, and the 2009 PODS Alberto Mendelzon Test-of-Time Award.
Francesco Scarcello is the coordinator of the Green aware AI (University of Calabria and CNR), a project funded by Next Generation EU. Francesco Scarcello is also a member of the Board of Administration of the National Research Center for HPC, Big Data, and Quantum Computing (https://www.supercomputing-icsc.it). He is a Member of the Editorial Board of the international journal Artificial Intelligence (Elsevier) where he also served for two terms, until2020, as an Associated Editor.
Frank Wolter is a Chair of Logic and Computation at the Department of Computer Science with the University of Liverpool, UK. Frank Wolter is a leading figure in the international knowledge representation community, and has pioneered work at the intersection of databases and knowledge representation. He has won numerous best paper awards at prestigious conferences. At KR, he amasses the impressive number of three best paper awards (2000, 2008, 2010) and two runner ups (2020 and 2021).
