CALL FOR PAPERS: 5th AISB Symposium on AI & Games, 1st April 2014, AISB-50, Goldsmiths, London, UK
The AI & Games Symposium acts as a meeting place for researchers from academia, education and industry who are involved with the design, development and evaluation of AI and games. Accepted Submissions: * Extended Abstracts (2-4 pages) * Posters (one slide) * Demos (max 2 pages description of what is going to be demonstrated) * Tutorials (max 2 pages description of planned tutorial content) Scope: Computer games now form an important sector of the computing and entertainment industries, but the need for better artificial intelligence (AI) in games is deeply felt and recognised by the industry. Conversely, games offer new challenges and excellent application domains for AI technology and research. Games are increasingly used for education, serious games or game-based learning, where AI techniques can create a believable, engaging experience for learners. The AI & Games Symposium focuses on the application of artificial intelligence techniques, frameworks and theories to the creation of engaging intelligent games, and will address the following areas of research and practice: The use of AI techniques (planning, learning, evolution etc.) in games and the game design process. The design and engineering of AI components in commercial games AI for serious games and gamification. Automatic or semi-automatic procedural content generation Intelligent or adaptive player interaction AI for player analytics and modelling player behaviour or experience. Agent pathfinding and decision-making in games Environmental simulations for games Interactive narrative generation Player perceptions of game AI Submission Procedure: All submissions are via the EasyChair website.
