The 36th Soar Workshop
June 7-10, 2016
Ann Arbor, Michigan

The University of Michigan Soar Group and Soar Technology, Inc. are pleased to announce the 36th Soar Workshop will be held the week of June 7, 2016 at the Computer Science and Engineering building at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. A thorough tutorial on using Soar and its various components is on Tuesday and Wednesday, June 7-8, while workshop presentations are given on Thursday and Friday, June 9-10.

There is no charge to attend the 36th Soar Workshop although registration is required. Click here to login or register.

All workshop information will be available on this web page. Periodic updates may be announced to soar-group (archives), but please check this web page for the most up-to-date information.

Overview

Each year, members of the Soar community--faculty, scientists, graduate students, technical staff and developers--gather together for several days of intensive interaction and exchange on Soar. The Soar community is widely distributed geographically, so these workshops provide an opportunity to have face-to-face conversations, learn about the current status of other participants' research and get previews of what will happen in the future. We will try to give as many members of the community as possible the opportunity to describe their research or discuss the Soar issues that are of concern to them. This means the time available per talk is quite short (typically either 5 or 15 minutes). Since workshop attendees are already entrenched in the Soar world, brief talks that concentrate on only the essentials work very well.

While the Soar Workshop is announced on the soar-group mailing list, we want to ensure that everyone actively working with Soar is invited. If you know of anyone who should have been invited but did not receive an announcement, please let us know. Proceedings from the previous Soar workshops are available online at this page.
