CALL FOR PAPERS: Artificial General Intelligence, 31 Jul - 3 Aug 2013, Beijing, CHINA

AGI 2013

* Mission *

The AGI conference series ( [])
is the premier international forum for cutting-edge research focusing on
the original goal of the AI field ? the creation of thinking machines
with general intelligence at the human level and ultimately beyond. The
AGI conference series is held in cooperation with AAAI, and AGI-13 will
co-locate with IJCAI-13.

* Topics *

As in prior AGI conferences, we welcome papers on all aspects of AGI R&D,
with the key proviso that each paper should in some way contribute
specifically to the development of Artificial General Intelligence.

* Special Session on Cognitive Robotics and AGI *

This Special Session will feature papers giving new AGI ideas inspired by
current research in Cognitive Robotics.

* Workshops *

AGI-13 will include the following workshops:
1. Formalizing Mechanisms for Artificial General Intelligence and
Cognition (Formal MAGIC)
2. Probability Theory or Not? Practical and Theoretical Concerns on
Uncertainty Handling in AGI

See []
for details of the workshops.

* Tutorials / Demonstrations *

Tutorials and demonstrations will be held alongside the conference. For
the requirements for proposals, please see the AGI-13 website.

* Keynotes *

Keynote speeches will be delivered by leading scientists in the area of
AGI and adjacent disciplines; they will be announced at a later stage at
the website of AGI-13.

1. Full papers (up to 10 pages): Original research in the above areas.
2. Technical Communications (up to 4 pages): Results and ideas with
interest to the AGI audience, including reports about recent own
publications, position papers, and preliminary results.

All accepted conference papers will be included in the proceedings, as
well as presented at the conference as talks or as posters. At least one
author of each accepted paper must register for the conference and
present the paper there.
