ICCBR'99 Photo Report

The 3rd. International Case-Based Reasoning Conference (ICCBR'99) was held at the beautiful and peaceful Monastery Seeon, in Bavaria Germany from July 27th. to 30th. 1999. This was the third conference in the ICCBR series, which started in 1995 in Portugal and then in 1997 in Rhode Island USA (the ICCBR'97 photo report is here). It has now become traditional for ai-cbr to write a report with photos of these conferences. If you attended the conference and would like your views or opinions included in this report please email them to ian@ai-cbr.org (I'd particularly like help with the some of the early morning sessions, as you'll see later).

We were also blessed by perfect weather (so good it actually made it difficult for some to stay in doors). The conference organisers deserve full-marks for the choice of setting and for the faultless organisation of the whole event.
