Contact: secretary12@aisb.org.uk

EXTENDED DEADLINE: 30th November 2012

The Society for the Study of Artificial Intelligence and Simulation of Behaviour 
(AISB) sponsors an annual convention consisting of a collocation of symposia 
and workshops. 2014 will mark the 50th anniversary of the founding of AISB 
as well as 60 years since the death of Alan Turing, and this is expected to be a 
high-profile event with eminent speakers from the Societys history and the field. 

THE AISB CONVENTION 

The AISB Convention is the major UK Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science
 Event. It aims to function as a venue for the presentation of recent and 
emerging work in the fields of Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science and 
as a productive environment for networking and the formation of collaborations. 

The convention will have a convention organiser who has overall responsibility
 for the convention programme, local arrangements and financial management. 
Programme detail is mostly delegated to individual symposium organisers but the 
convention organiser is responsible for arranging plenary talks. 

The convention uniquely offers a supportive environment for the presentation 
of emerging work. In particular, it provides an excellent opportunity for students 
to present their research to an audience containing some of the most eminent 
researchers in the field. 

Further details of the role of the convention organiser are available on request 
from the AISB secretary (secretary12@aisb.org.uk). 

MAKING A PROPOSAL 

Proposals should be made by EMAILING IN PLAIN TEXT to Dr Rodger Kibble 
at secretary12@aisb.org.uk, enclosing the following information (prior informal 
email enquiries from possible proposers are welcomed): 

NAME & AFFILIATION of Convention Organiser -including both postal 
and email addresses and telephone numbers. 

CASE FOR SUPPORT not more than 1000 words, arguing your case for 
hosting the Convention. You may put observations about your own background 
and suitability in the Additional Comments section below. This case for support
 should include suggestions of individuals you intend to approach as plenary 
speakers and symposium organisers. 

CONVENTION LOCATION, TIME AND LENGTH Typically an AISB 
convention runs for 3-4 days in March/April. If you are proposing to host a 
convention of unusual length or at an unusual time then you should also include 
a justification of this change. The location should be in the UK. 

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS no more than 500 words, on, for example, 
the relevance of your background to the convention, and of any benefits of your 
proposed location such as suitable accommodation for delegates and accessibility 
by public transport. 

The winning proposal will be selected by the Committee of the AISB.
