The abundance of information and increase in computing power currently enables researchers to tackle highly complicated and challenging computational problems. Solutions to such problems are now feasible using advances and innovations from the area of Artificial Intelligence. The general focus of the AIAI 2010 conference is to provide insights on how Artificial Intelligence may be applied in real world situations and serve the study, analysis and modelling of theoretical and practical issues. Also, research papers describing advanced prototypes, innovative systems, tools and techniques are encouraged. General survey papers indicating future directions and professional work-in-progress reports are of equal interest. Acceptance will be based on quality, originality and practical merit of the work.

Authors are invited to electronically submit original, English-language research contributions or experience reports. Submitted papers must present unpublished work, not being considered for publication in other journals or conferences.


Regular Papers and Workshop Papers: The maximum length permitted is eight (8) pages, formatted according to Springer IFIP series instructions. The Programme Committee may reject papers exceeding this length. Authors are strongly encouraged to use the correct document style from the Springer IFIP website ( This should be done for their initial submission, so that preparation of the final papers will be simplified. A fully electronic review process by three academic reviewers is planned for all submitted papers.

Full papers and workshop or tutorial proposals should be submitted electronically in postscript, pdf or word format. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register and present the paper. Papers shall not be included in the proceedings if these requirements are not met, nor if the registration fee is not received until the camera-ready deadline. For further information related to the technical programme or other details on the conference, please contact the Organising Chair, Harris Papadopoulos, at


Workshop proposals comprising original research papers on innovative or otherwise provocative issues within the conference topic areas are also encouraged. Workshops should be held simultaneously with the 6th IFIP AIAI conference. Submitted proposals should include a 2-3 page summary of the topic, including the names and affiliations of Programme Committee members and chairs. Also, the chairs of the workshops should arrange the publication of accepted papers. For questions regarding workshop proposals, please contact the Workshop Chair, Nicos Mateou, at

Proposals for 90-minute tutorials are also invited in areas within the conference's topics. Tutorial proposals must be 5 pages at most, identifying the intended audience and presenting enough material to provide a sense of what will be covered. For questions related to the tutorials please e-mail the Tutorials Chair, Tasos Sofokleous, at


Based on the reviewers' comments and on the presentation, and after a second peer review process, a number of selected papers will be published in a special issue of the International Journal on Artificial Intelligence Tools (IJAIT), World Scientific Publishing Co., Print ISSN: 0218-2130, Online ISSN: 1793-6349.
