AI Communications is a journal on Artificial Intelligence which has a close relationship to ECCAI (the European Coordinating Committee for Artificial Intelligence). It covers the whole AI community: scientific institutions as well as commercial and industrial companies. AI Communications aims to enhance contacts and information exchange between AI researchers and developers, and to provide supranational information to those concerned with AI and advanced information processing. AI Communications publishes refereed articles concerning scientific and technical AI procedures, provided they are of sufficient interest to a large readership of both scientific and practical background. In addition it contains high-level background material, both at the technical level as well as the level of opinions, policies and news. The Editorial and Advisory Boards is appointed by the Editor-in-Chief.
