Contact: m.bishop@gold.ac.uk

*AISB-50*: a convention commemorating both 50 years since the founding of 
the society for the study of Artificial Intelligence and the Simulation of 
Behaviour (the AISB) and sixty years since the death of Alan Turing, 
founding father of both Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence, will 
be held at Goldsmiths, University of London, UK from the 1st to the 4th 
April 2014. The convention will follow the same overall structure as 
previous conventions, namely a set of co-located symposia and we are 
currently seeking proposals for these symposia. Typical symposia last for 
one or two days, and can include any type of event of academic benefit: 
talks, posters, panels, discussions, demonstrations, outreach sessions, 
etc. Proposals to run symposia are welcomed across all areas of Artificial 
Intelligence and the Simulation of Behaviour; some potential themes are 
listed below:

? Knowledge Representation
? Computational Intelligence and the Computational theory of mind
? Golden years: Artificial Intelligence 60 years after Alan Turing?s death
? Philosophical Foundations of Artificial Intelligence
? Consciousness and Machine Consciousness
? Human and Machine Creativity
? Simulation of Human and Animal Behaviour
? Neural Networks and Machine Learning
? Computational Neuroscience
? Robotics and Robot Ethics
? Epigenetic and developmental robotics
? Autonomous Agents and Agent Based Computing
? Enactivism
? Embodied Cognition
? Ecological Cognition
? Embedded [Social] Cognition
? Extended Cognition
? Affective Intelligence and Behaviour
? Natural Language Processing
? Discourse and dialogue
? Embodied Audio-Visual Interaction
? Style in text; textual forensics
? Robotics, Perception and Art
? Live Algorithms
? Cultural, social and media theory and computing
? Sensorimotor Theory
? Cybernetics and Human knowing
? Sensory Substitution
? Distributed Thinking

Proposing a Symposium


Each symposium is organised by its own organising committee. The committee 
proposes the symposium, defines the area(s) and structure for it, issues 
calls for abstracts/papers etc., manages the process of selecting 
submitted papers for inclusion, and compiles an electronic file for 
inclusion in the convention proceedings.



? Proposers are welcome to submit, or be involved with more than one 
proposal.

? Proposers need not already be members of the AISB.

? The (revised) deadline for symposium proposals: 10th July 2013.

? Notification of acceptance: August 2013.

* *

*Submissions should consist of the following*



? A title.

? A 300-1000 word description of the scope of the symposium, and its 
relevance to the convention along with the nature of the academic events 
(talks, posters, panels, demonstrations, etc.).

? Whether the symposium is intended as a sequel to a symposium at a 
previous AISB conference.

? An indication of whether submissions will be by abstract, extended 
abstract or full paper.

? Your preferences about the intended length of the symposium as a number 
of days (preferably one day or two, but anything from half a day to three 
days), together with a brief justification.

? A description (up to 500 words) of any experience you have in 
organisation of academic research meetings (please note that it is not a 
requirement that you have such experience).

? Names and affiliations of any invited speakers that you may have in mind 
for the symposium.

? Your names and full contact details, together with, if possible, names 
and workplaces of the members of a preliminary, partial programme 
committee.

? Please e-mail your completed proposal to Professor Mark Bishop:
