SIKS basic courses: " Learning and Reasoning " and "Information Retrieval "



From May 25-28 2009, the School for Information and Knowledge Systems (SIKS) organizes two basic courses "Learning and Reasoning" (25-26 May) and "Information Retrieval" (27-28 May). Both courses will be given in English and are part of the obligatory Basic Course Program for SIKS-PhD -students.
