FINAL CALL FOR SYMPOSIA PROPOSALS: AISB-50: 1st - 4th April 2014, Goldsmiths, University of London, UK

http://www.aisb.org.uk/events/aisb14
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:

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

*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.

?š Proposers are welcome to submit, or be involved with more than one
proposal.
?š Proposers need not already be members of the AISB.
?š The (revised) deadline for symposium proposals: 22nd August 2013.
?š Notification of acceptance: August 30th 2013.

Submissions should consist of the following

?š A title.

?š 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.).

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

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

?š 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.

?š 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).

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

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

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