*** DEADLINE FOR PAPER/POSTER SUBMISSION: TUESDAY 1st JUNE 2010 ***

AI-2010 is the thirtieth SGAI International Conference on Innovative
Techniques and  Applications of Artificial Intelligence.

The scope of the conference comprises the whole range of AI
technologies and  application areas. AI-2010 reviews recent technical
advances in AI technologies and  shows how these advances have been
applied to solve business problems. Key  features are:

- Papers will be published in book form by Springer.

- The Technical Stream presents the best of recent developments in AI,
covering a wide  range of technical areas.

- The Application Stream is the largest annual showcase in Europe of
real applications  using AI technology.

- The best papers will be reprinted in a special issue of the
international journal  'Knowledge Based Systems'.

- The Poster Session is a forum for disseminating new developments and
latest work in  progress, especially suited to MSc and PhD students.

- Prizes for Best Paper in each stream and Best Poster.

- The programme also includes tutorials and workshops to provide
greater depth in  selected topics. (These are free to delegates of the
main conference, but separate  registration is also available.)

- The Machine Intelligence (MI) competition exhibits working systems
that are a  significant step towards machine intelligence.

- UKCBR-10, the 15th UK CBR Workshop, will be co-located with AI-
2010.

- FAIRS-2010, the fourth annual forum for AI research students will
immediately  precede the AI-2010 conference at Peterhouse College on
December 13th, 2010. The  aim of FAIRS is to support student members
of the AI community providing advice and  feedback on their research
plans and work. This event is free of charge for research  students
and no conference registration is required.

- The conference qualifies for the IEE and BCS CPD schemes.

- In addition to the formal sessions, the conference programme
includes a welcome  reception and a Gala Dinner.

AI-2010 offers a valuable opportunity to keep up to date with
developments in AI and to  share experiences in the practical issues
of developing AI systems.

IMPORTANT DATES
- Paper/Poster Submission: Tuesday 1st June 2010

- Notification of Acceptance: Monday 19th July 2010

- Camera Ready Paper: Monday 30th August 2010

CONTRIBUTIONS
Contributions are invited in the form of papers of up to fourteen A4
pages presenting  original work in AI. Contributions may be submitted
to either of two streams for oral  presentation, or a parallel poster
session (six pages maximum).

Technical Stream

Areas of interest include (but are not restricted to): knowledge
engineering; semantic  web; constraint satisfaction; intelligent
agents; machine learning; model based  reasoning; verification and
validation of AI systems; natural language understanding;
speech-enabled systems; case based reasoning; neural networks; genetic
algorithms;  data mining and knowledge discovery in databases;
knowledge representation,  inference and reasoning; robotics and
pervasive computing; qualitative and temporal  reasoning; knowledge
management; AI languages and environments; robotics and  pervasive
computing.

Application Stream

Case studies are welcomed describing the application of AI to
real-world problems.  Papers in recent years have covered all
application domains, including commerce,  manufacturing and
government, and every major AI technique. In addition to case  studies
and specific applications of AI, we would welcome papers that discuss
issues  such as managing the transfer from research to production of
AI-based products.

Papers are selected to highlight critical areas of success (and
failure) and to present the  benefits and lessons of value to other
developers. Submitted papers should make these  points clear. Guidance
notes for Application Stream authors are available from the  website.

Poster Session

The Poster Session is intended for the presentation of work which
meets the high  standards of the conference, but which is more topical
and preliminary than the work  presented in the main two streams. It
is an excellent forum for disseminating new  developments and latest
work in progress, especially suited to MSc and PhD students.  Poster
papers will be included as short papers (maximum 6 pages) in the
proceedings  volumes. Papers submitted to the Technical and
Application streams will automatically  be considered as posters if
they fall short of the standard for oral presentation in full form.

Publication of Papers

Papers accepted for presentation at the conference will be published
in book form by  Springer.

- The books will be prepared from camera-ready copy supplied by the
authors of  accepted papers.

- Formatting specifications for the proceedings have been provided by
the publisher and  are available from the conference website.

- Authors will retain copyright in all papers published in the two
volumes of proceedings.

- The best six refereed papers in each stream will be reprinted as a
special issue of the  international journal Knowledge Based Systems.

Submission of Papers

Papers must be prepared in either Microsoft Word or Latex. Initial
versions of papers  should be submitted in PDF format only and
uploaded to the conference website by  TUESDAY JUNE 1st 2010 at the
latest. There are revised Word macro and Latex style  files compared
with previous years.

- At least one author of each accepted paper must register for and
attend the  conference to present it in person, for the paper to be
published.

- Presenting authors will be asked to register for the conference at
the discounted  speakers' rate when they return the final camera-ready
printed versions of their papers.

Tutorials & workshops

The Conference Committee invites proposals for tutorials and
workshops
to be  presented on the first day of the conference. These should be
directed in the first  instance to the Tutorial/Workshop Organiser.

Prizes

There are sponsored prizes (a trophy plus 500 pounds) for the best
paper submitted in  each stream and a trophy plus a cash prize for the
best poster, awarded on the basis of  delegate voting. There is also a
trophy plus a cash prize for the best refereed paper  written by a
student.

Machine Intelligence Competition

A permanent trophy awarded for one year plus a cash prize will be
awarded to the  winner of the annual machine intelligence competition.
This prize will be awarded to the  working system that is considered
to be the most significant step forward towards  Machine Intelligence
on display at the competition.

All further information including details of the conference committee,
program  committees, paper format and uploading instructions is given
on the conference  website.
