Other Activities

 Description

I co-organised the 10th Annual Irish Conference on Artificial
Intelligence and Cognitive Science in 1999.


I co-organised a session on Constraint Programming, Integer
Programming, Operations Research and Local Search at the 15th
International Conference on Applications of Declarative Programming
and Knowledge Managagement in 2004.


I organised a session on Constraint Programming at the Joint
International Meeting of the Canadian Operational Research Society and
INFORMS in 2004.


I was chair of the Modelling Workshop at the 15th European Conference
on Artificial Intelligence in 2004.


I was co-chair of the Modelling and Reformulation Workshop in the 12th
International Conferences on Principles and Practice of Constraint
Programming in 2006.


I was a member of the organising committee for the Doctoral Programme
in the 12th International Conferences on Principles and Practice of
Constraint Programming in 2006.


I was Publicity Chair of the 9th International Conferences on
Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming in 2003.


I was chair of the Workshop on Modelling and Solving Problems with
Constraints in the 17th European Conference on Artificial Intelligence
in 2006.


I co-organised CP'08 Workshop on Modeling and Solving Problems with
Constraints.


I am a reviewer for the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research
Council of Canada, and have reviewed a Discovery Grant proposal.


I have reviewed a grant proposal for the US Air Force Office of
Scientific Research.


I was a guest researcher at the National University of Singapore for 1
month in 2001, funded by a research project on Advanced Query
Processing (RPR-252-000-064-112).


I gave an invited lecture at the University of Essex, 7/2/03, entitled
Incomplete Dynamic Backtracking.


I was a panel member in a discussion on symmetry at the UK Automated
Reasoning Workshop in 2003.


I gave an invited talk at IIWAS'00 on Constraint Programming.


I have been an external and internal examiner for MSc and PhD students in several universities.

 


I have been involved with several companies, working on applications
of artificial intelligence to real-world problems.

I have taught and developed courses on artificial intelligence, optimization, programming (C, Java, Pascal), databases, multimedia, and web technologies.
