  CALL FOR CONVENTION PROPOSALS

 DEADLINE: 1 December 2009 

The Society for the Study of Artificial Intelligence and Simulation of
Behaviour (AISB) sponsors an annual convention consisting of a
collocation of symposia and workshops.  The convention aims to provide
a unique opportunity to promote emerging work which spans the full
range of research within Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive
Science.

THE AISB CONVENTION

The AISB Convention is the major UK Artificial Intelligence and
Cognitive Science Event.  It aims to function as a venue for the
presentation of recent and emerging work in the fields of Artificial
Intelligence and Cognitive Science and as a productive environment for
networking and the formation of collaborations.

The convention will have a convention organiser who has has overall
responsibility for the convention programme, local arrangements and
financial management.  Programme detail is mostly delegated to
individual symposium organisers but the convention organiser is
responsible for arranging plenary talks.

The convention uniquely offers a supportive environment for the
presentation of emerging work.  In particular, it provides an
excellent opportunity for students to present their research to an
audience containing some of the most eminent researchers in the field.

A full description of the role of the convention organiser is
available on request from the AISB secretary (secretary09@aisb.org.uk)
and also from the AISB Web Site
(http://www.aisb.org.uk/convention/organisation.shtml).
