CALL FOR PAPERS: "AI-2011", 13-15 Dec 2011, Cambridge, UK

AI-2011: Cambridge, UK. - Organised by BCS SGAI: The British Computer Society Specialist Group on Artificial Intelligence (an ECCAI Member Society) - The leading series of UK-based international conferences on Artificial Intelligence and one of the lon

AI-2011 is the thirty-first 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-2011 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-11, the 16th UK CBR Workshop, will be co-located with AI- 2011. 

- FAIRS-2011, the fifth annual forum for AI research students will immediately precede the AI-2011 conference at Peterhouse College on December 12th, 2011. 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. 

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

AI-2011 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. 

- Paper/Poster Submission: Tuesday 31st May 2011
- Notification of Acceptance: Monday 18th July 2011
- Camera Ready Paper: Tuesday 30th August 2011 

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 the deadline given above 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. 


There are cash prizes 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 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.
