Alessio Lomuscio was an invited speaker at the Industry Strategy Meeting which
was held on the 29th of September 2015 at the World Economic Forum (in Geneva)! His talk was entitled “The race against ‘thinking’ machines”.
Ioana Boureanu gave an invited talk entitled “Challenges in Distance Bounding Protocols”, at the Romanian Cryptology Days (RCD-2015), held in Bucharest, Romania, between the
September 21 and September 23, 2015.
Ioana Boureanu gave a talk entitled “Multiagent System-based Verification of Security and Privacy” at the Agent Verification Workshop, held in conjunction with the 16th International Conference on Toward Autonomous Robotic Systems (TAROS 2015), on the 11th September 2015, in Liverpool, UK.
A new post is available at Imperial College London, UK, in the VAS group. The position is associated with the EPSRC project Trusted Autonomous Systems.
The appointed researcher will be responsible for developing, in collaboration with Prof. Lomuscio, model checking methodologies, implementation toolkits, and case-study analyses, rooted mainly in modal logics and multiagent systems.
The appointment is until the 30 Sept 2016. The deadline for applications is 17 September.
Full details are to be found here.
Past and present members of VAS had two papers accepted at IJCAI2015! Alessio Lomuscio presented them, at the end of July, in Buenos Aires! The titles are “Verifying Emergent Properties of Swarms” and “Finite Abstractions for the Verification of Epistemic Properties in Open Multi-Agent Systems”.
Ioana Boureanu joined the group, as a Marie-Curie fellow, researching on logic-based verification of privacy.
A postdoctoral position is available at Imperial College London, UK, to work in the project “Verification of Autonomous Systems”.
The project aims to develop verification methodologies for autonomous systems specified by agent-based logics, including epistemic logic.
The position is available from now until 30 Sept 2015. Extensions are possible subject to further funding. The deadline for applications is 19 October. Applications received after this date will be considered if the post is still vacant.
