## INTRODUCTION                                                     ##
######################################################################

The PAIS 2010 Program Committee invites papers describing innovative
applications of AI techniques to real-world systems and problems for
the Technical Program of the 6th International Conference on the
Prestigious Applications of Intelligent Systems − a sub-conference of
the 19th European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI-2010).

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a central topic in contemporary
computer science and informatics.  The fruits of fifty years of AI
research have benefited application domains as disparate as industrial
systems control and medicine.  The milestone events in AI research are
increasingly regarded as milestones in human scientific and
technological development: from the first chess playing program to
defeat a reigning world champion under standard chess tournament
rules, to the first robot to autonomously traverse 150 miles of rough
terrain. Techniques, results, and concepts developed under the banner
of AI research have proved to be of fundamental importance in areas
such as economics, philosophy, linguistics, psychology, and logical
analysis. And of course, AI remains a topic of perennial fascination
in popular culture.

Papers highlighting all aspects of the application of intelligent
system technology are most welcome. Our aim is to provide a forum for
academic and industrial researchers and practitioners to share
experience and insights on the applicability, development and
deployment of intelligent systems. PAIS is the largest showcase in
Europe of real applications using AI technology and the ideal place to
meet with those working to make successful applications.

PAIS-2010/ECAI-2010 will be held in the beautiful and historic city of
Lisbon, Portugal. With excellent opportunities for sightseeing and
gastronomy, Lisbon promises to be a wonderful venue for a memorable
conference.

## SUBMISSION INFORMATION                                           ##
######################################################################

Submissions  must   not  exceed   *SIX*  (6)  pages   in  camera-ready
format.   Over-length    submissions   will   be    rejected   without
review. Papers should be submitted using the ECAI formatting style, to
be available soon  on the conference website (this  will be very close
to previous  ECAI styles). Each  accepted paper will be  allocated six
pages in the proceedings.

All submissions will be subject to peer review by the PAIS-2010
Programme Committee, and evaluated on the basis of: relevance;
significance of contribution; technical quality; scholarship; and
quality of presentation.

Reviewing for PAIS-2010 will be blind: reviewers will not be presented
with the identity of paper authors. To allow for blind review, author
names in a submitted paper or poster should be replaced by the unique
tracking number assigned by the conference website at the submission
of an electronic abstract.  Authors should avoid writing anything that
makes their identity obvious in the text.  Submissions should be
original, and in particular should not previously have been formally
published. (As a rule of thumb, any publication venue with an ISBN or
ISSN number counts as a formal publication.) Submissions should not be
submitted elsewhere during the PAIS-2010 review phase.

The  primary   authors  of  submitted  papers  will   be  offered  the
opportunity  to respond  to the  reviews for  their papers  before the
final decision on acceptance or otherwise is made. The author feedback
phase will last two days.

The proceedings of the PAIS conference, together with those of its
associated symposia, ECAI and STAIRS, will be published and
distributed by IOS Press as a book and as a CD-ROM. The authors will
be responsible for producing camera-ready copies of papers, conforming
to the ECAI-2010 formatting guidelines for inclusion in the
proceedings.  At least one author of each accepted paper or poster is
required to attend the conference to present the contribution.
