          UAI-2000: The Sixteenth Conference on Uncertainty in
                         Artificial Intelligence

                    Stanford University, Stanford, CA

                         June 30 - July 3, 2000

As we approach the new millenium, advances in the theory and practice
of artificial intelligence have pushed intelligent systems to the
forefront of the information technology sector. At the same time,
uncertainty managament has come to play a central role in the
development of these systems. The Conference on Uncertainty in
Artificial intelligence, organized annually under the auspices of the
Association for Uncertainty in AI (AUAI), is the premier
international forum for exchanging results on the use of principled
uncertain-reasoning methods in intelligent systems.

The Sixteenth Conference on Uncertainty in Artificial, UAI-2000, will
be held from June 30 - July 3, 2000, at Stanford University. The main
technical program will be run from July 1-3, with UAI's regular
tutorial program and several workshops to be held on June 30. As in
1998 in Madison, WI, this year the conference will be co-located with
the International Conference on Machine Learning and the Conference
on Computational Learning theory.

Registrants to any of COLT, ICML, or UAI will be allowed to attend,
without additional cost, the technical sessions of the other two
conferences, and to purchase proceedings of the other conferences at
a substantial discount.
