Short Bio

Stefan Edelkamp is a Professor in the Institute for Artificial Intelligence at the Faculty of Computer Science and Mathematics of the University of Bremen. He earned his Ph.D. from Freiburg University and has lead a junior research group at Technical University of Dortmund. His scientific interests are centered around Algorithmic Intelligence and include such areas as Heuristic Search, Action Planning, Game Playing, Machine Learning, Multi-Agent Simulation, Model Checking, External-Memory Algorithms, Parallel and Distributed Computing, Algorithm Engineering, Computational Biology, Decision Diagrams, Priority Queues, Navigation Systems, Network Security, and Intrusion Detection. Stefan Edelkamp has organized successful Workshops (e.g., MOCHART, SPIN), Conferences (e.g., KI, ICAPS, SOCS) as well as Dagstuhl-Seminars (e.g., Directed Model Checking, Graph Search Engineering, Automated Planning and Model Checking) and won several Performance Awards at International Planning Competitions. Together with Stefan Schroedl he is a co-author of the book Heuristic Search - Theory and Applications that has been published by Morgan Kaufmann / Elsevier Science.
