CALL FOR PAPERS: AGI-12 and AGI-Impacts, 8-12 Dec 2012, Oxford University , UK

The Winter Intelligence Conference, set in Oxford University as part of Alan Turingfs centenary 
year, combines two subconferences on artificial general intelligence (AGI):

AGI-12, the 5th conference on Artificial General Intelligence on the 8th and 9th of December 2012 
(with workshops to follow on the 10th and 11th).

AGI Impacts conference which analyses the issues and risks surrounding the creation of such 
machines (run by the Future of Humanity Institute and the Oxford Martin Programme on the Impact 
of Future Technology) on the 10th and 11th of December 2012.
These conferences are the only major conference series dedicated to research on the creation of 
thinking machines with general intelligence at the human level (and ultimately beyond), and how to 
predict the social, economic, philosophical and scientific impact of future intelligent and 
superintelligent machines. The scope is wide, but all papers and lectures are expected to be of 
high quality and with the maximal amount of rigour that is possible for the subject area.

The CFP for AGI-12 runs until August 15th, and can be found at .  
The conference proceedings will be published by Springer Lecture Notes in AI (LNAI).
The CFP for AGI impacts (and risks) runs until August 31st, and can be found at . 
A selection of papers from the conference will be published in a special volume of the Journal of 
Experimental & Theoretical Artificial Intelligence in 2013. Attendees at both subconferences are 
eligible for the 00 2012 Turing Prize for Best AGI Safety Paper, for any paper or contribution 
to eAGI-12 and eAGI-Impacts 2012 that presents exceptional research on the question of how to 
develop safe architectures or goals for artificial general intelligence (AGI).

We look forward to seeing you at Oxford in December!
