 +Dipartimento di Matematica, Università di Parma\\
 +===== Lecture #1 =====
 +Abstract interpretation
 +===== Lecture #2 =====
 +**Constraint satisfaction problems** deal with the //inference of hidden information//​.
 +Qualitative Temporal Reasoning: Allen 1983 finds 13 possible relations between two events A and B.
 +RCC8 (topology?​):​ consistency checks about spatial relationships between objects.
