Funded by the American Association for AI.
The Society for the Study of Artificial Intelligence and the Simulation
of Behaviour (SSAISB) is the largest Artificial Intelligence Society in
the United Kingdom. Founded in 1964, the society has an international
membership drawn from both academia and industry.
ECCAI, the European Coordinating Committee for Artificial Intelligence,
was established in July 1982 as a representative body for the European
Artificial Intelligence community. Its aim is to promote the study,
research and application of Artificial Intelligence in Europe.

The cognition_affect email list:
There is an email list maintained at Birmingham for discussions of
cognition and affect (e.g. architectures of autonomous agents, and
processes involving motivation and emotions). If you wish to join,
you can do so here:
After joining send an introductory message about yourself, where you
are, what you do, etc. This is a very low traffic list.
To send messages to people on the list, post to
Please do not send general advertisements, etc. This list is for
discussion and announcements relevant to the study of cognition and
affect (including motivation, moods, attitudes, emotions, etc.)

In April 1996 the New Scientist had a supplement on emotions, including
a brief report on our work, along with work at MIT, CMU and elsewhere.
After registering, if you have not done so previously, log in to the
above address then look in the "No Limits" section under "Emotions".
That takes you to a list of the articles. The second artcle is "You're
