The LIMBS seminars 2005/2006

Welcome to the LIMBS seminars web page!

What is LIMBS?

LIMBS (Liralab / Infomus / MRG(ailab + STARLab) / Biolab) is a series of informal, inter-disciplinary seminars, aimed at cross-fertilisation among the research laboratories of DIST (Department of Informatics, Systems and Computer Science).

LIMBS seminars can be held either by members of the labs or by visiting researchers. LIMBS talks must be understandable by non-specialists; therefore, there is almost no limitation to what the topic of the seminar can be, although we mainly deal with artificial intelligence, robotics and bioengineerings. The audience is (usually :-) friendly.
