About MIWAI
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Artificial Intelligence (AI) research has broad applications in real
world problems. Examples include control, planning and scheduling,
pattern recognition, knowledge mining, software applications and
strategy games. The ever-evolving needs in business both on a local
and on a global scale demand better technologies for solving more and
more complex problems. Such needs can be found in all industrial
sectors and in any part of the world.

This workshop aims to be a meeting place where excellence in AI
research meets the needs for solving dynamic and complex problems in
the real world. The academic researchers, developers, and industrial
practitioners will have extensive opportunities to present their
original work, technological advances and practical problems.
Participants can learn from each other and exchange their experiences
in order to fine tune their activities in order to help each other
better.

The main purposes of the MIWAI series of workshops are as follows:

?to provide a meeting place for AI researchers and practitioners in
Thailand and beyond.

?to inform Thai students about cutting-edge AI research via the
presence of outstanding international invited speakers.

?to raise the standards of practice of AI research in the whole of
Thailand by providing Thai researchers and students with feedback from
an internationally-renowned program committee.

Submission requirements
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Submissions of the following three categories are invited:

Category A: REGULAR PAPERS
..................................................................................................
Papers presenting new original work. Submitted papers should not
exceed a length of 12 pages in the IEEE format style (templates here:
http://khamreang.msu.ac.th/miwai10/MIWAI_2010/textemplate.zip,
http://khamreang.msu.ac.th/miwai10/MIWAI_2010/wordtemplate.zip)
Regular papers will be reviewed on overall quality and relevance.
Reviewing of category A papers will be (at least) double-blind. In
order to make blind reviewing possible, the authors should follow
that:

?The authors' names and institutions should not appear in the paper.
?Unpublished work of the authors should not be cited.
?Using "we" or "us" in reviews of literature should be avoided, e.g.,
"In [1] we have proposed..." should be changed to "In [1] the authors
have proposed...".

The program committee will evaluate Category A papers as either
?rejected? or ?accepted as long paper? or ?accepted as short paper?.
All accepted category A papers (long and short) will be fully
published in the proceedings.

Category B: COMPRESSED CONTRIBUTIONS
..................................................................................................
Papers that have been accepted after June 1 2009 for AI-related
refereed conferences or journals can be resubmitted and will be
accepted as ?compressed contributions?. Authors are invited to submit
the published version (without page or format restriction) together
with a 1 or 2-page abstract prepared in the IEEE format style (links
to templates above). Note the above double-blind instructions apply
only to category A papers, not to category B. The abstract of the
paper will be published in the proceedings. Every author may submit at
most one B-paper of which they are the corresponding author, and only
if they do not submit any A-paper as corresponding author.

Category C: DEMONSTRATIONS AND APPLICATIONS
..................................................................................................
Proposals for demonstrations will be evaluated based on submitted
demonstration summaries stating the following: the purpose of the
system to be demonstrated, its user groups, the organization or
project for which it is developed, the developers, and the technology
used. In addition, the system requirements and the duration of the
demo (not exceeding 30 minutes) should be mentioned. Especially master
students are encouraged to submit papers presenting their applications
and experiences. The maximum size of demonstration summaries is 2
pages (links to templates above). Reviewing of category C papers will
be double-blind (see above under ?category A? papers for details).

The workshop proceedings will be published with ISBN number.

At least one author of each accepted paper (in each submission
category) is required to attend the workshop.

Language Requirements
..................................................................................................
As MIWAI is an international workshop, its official language is
English. This means all submitting authors must submit an English
language version of their paper, as well as present their paper in
English if accepted for the workshop.
