CALL FOR PAPERS

EPIA'2009 - Portuguese Conference on Artificial Intelligence
http://epia2009.appia.pt

The worldwide Artificial Intelligence (AI) community is invited to submit
papers to the 14th Portuguese Conference on Artificial Intelligence. As in
previous years, this international conference is hosted with the patronage
of the Portuguese Association for Artificial Intelligence (APPIA). The
purpose of the conference is to promote research in all areas of AI.

The coming conference will be structured as a set of thematic tracks. These
are intended to provide an informal environment that fosters the active
cross-fertilization of ideas between researchers within specific sub-areas
of AI, including theoretical/foundational, integrative, application-oriented
and newly emerging areas. The program includes the following thematic
tracks:

AITUM - Artificial Intelligence in Transportation and Urban Mobility
ALEA - Artificial Life and Evolutionary Algorithms
CMBSB - Computational Methods in Bioinformatics and Systems Biology
COLA - Computational Logic with Applications
EAC - Emotional and Affective Computing
GAI - General Artificial Intelligence
IROBOT - Intelligent Robotics
KDBI - Knowledge Discovery and Business Intelligence
MASTA - Multi-Agent Systems: Theory and Applications
SSM - Social Simulation and Modelling
TEMA - Text Mining and Applications
WNI - Web and Network Intelligence

All submissions will be refereed and selected for presentation at the
conference on the basis of quality and relevance to the issues each track is
addressing. A selection of high quality full papers presented in the
different tracks will appear in a book published by Springer, in the LNAI
series. All remaining papers presented at the conference will be published
in a conference proceedings book. The official language of the conference
is English.

A Doctoral Symposium on Artificial Intelligence will be co-located with the
conference.
