                          2nd CALL FOR PAPERS

The annual IEEE International Conference on Tools with Artificial
Intelligence (ICTAI)
provides a major international forum where the creation and exchange of
ideas related 
to artificial intelligence are fostered among academia, industry, and
government agencies.
The conference facilitates the cross-fertilization of these ideas and
promotes their 
transfer into practical tools, for developing intelligent systems and
pursuing artificial 
intelligence applications. The ICTAI encompasses all the technical aspects
of specifying,
developing and evaluating the theoretical underpinnings and applied
mechanisms of the AI 
based components of computer tools (i.e. algorithms, methodologies,
architectures or 
languages).  

TOPICS OF INTEREST include (but are not limited to) the following: 

  AI Algorithms
  AI in Software Engineering
  AI in Bioinformatics
  AI in Games
  AI in Multimedia Systems
  AI in Real-time and Embedded Applications
  AI in E-commerce
  AI in Databases and Data Mining
  AI in Medicine
  AI in Computer Security and Information Assurance
  AI in Robotics
  AI in Logistics and Supply Chain Management
  Case-Based Reasoning
  Cognitive Modelling
  Constraint Programming
  Collaborative Software Agents
  Reasoning Under Fuzziness or Uncertainty
  Evolutionary Computing
  Hybrid Intelligent Systems
  Information Retrieval
  Intelligent Tutoring/Training Systems
  Intelligent Internet Agents
  Intelligent Interface Agents
  Knowledge-based Systems
  Knowledge Discovery
  Knowledge Extraction
  Knowledge Management and Sharing
  Knowledge Representation and Reasoning
  Machine Learning
  Natural Language and Speech Processing and Understanding
  Neural Networks
  Planning and Scheduling
  Qualitative Reasoning
  Search and Heuristics
  Vision and Image Processing and Understanding.


SUBMISSION

The submissions should contain original, high quality, not submitted or
published elsewhere
work. The accepted papers will be included in the ICTAI-07 proceedings
published by the IEEE
Computer Society. Extended versions of the best papers of the conference
will be published 
in a special issue of the International Journal on Artificial Intelligence
Tools (IJAIT) 
(SCI Indexed).
