I would like to foster the involvement of SPECIES in the European networks on AI. More ‘locally’, to do my best to make SPECIES less and less just the organizer of Evostar, by supporting the existing initiatives (partnership with SN Computer Science and SPECIES scholarships) and fostering new ones (re-establishing a summer school?) favoring students’ participation in SPECIES/Evostar and formation in Evolutionary Computation.
