CALL FOR PAPERS: Methodologies for Intelligent Systems, 25-27 Jun 2014, Roskilde, DENMARK


We invite you to submit a paper to ISMIS'14 International Symposium on 
Methodologies for Intelligent Systems which will be held in Roskilde, 
Denmark, June 25-27, 2014. Please note that the paper submission deadline 
is February 3, 2014.

 The scope of ISMIS is intended to represent a wide range of topics on 
applying Artificial Intelligence techniques to areas as diverse as 
decision support, automated deduction, reasoning, knowledge based systems, 
machine learning, computer vision, robotics, planning, databases, 
information retrieval, etc. The focus is on research in intelligent 
systems. The conference addresses issues involving solutions to problems 
that are complex to be solved through conventional approaches and that 
require the simulation of intelligent thought processes, heuristics and 
applications of knowledge. The integration of these multiple approaches in 
solving complex problems is of particular importance. ISMIS provides a 
forum and a means for exchanging information for those interested purely 
in theory, those interested primarily in implementation, and those 
interested in specific research and industrial applications.

 ISMIS'14 is intended to attract individuals who are actively engaged both 
in theoretical and practical aspects of intelligent systems. The goal is 
to provide a platform for a useful exchange between theoreticians and 
practitioners, and to foster the cross-fertilization of ideas in the 
following areas:

   - Active Media Human-Computer Interaction
   - Autonomic and Evolutionary Computation
   - Digital Libraries
   - Intelligent Agent Technology
   - Intelligent Information Retrieval
   - Intelligent Information Systems
   - Intelligent Language Processing
   - Knowledge Representation and Integration
   - Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining
   - Knowledge Visualization
   - Logic for Artificial Intelligence
   - Music Information Retrieval
   - Social Networks
   - Soft Computing
   - Text Mining
   - Web Intelligence
   - Web Mining
   - Web Services

 In addition, we solicit papers dealing with Applications of Intelligent 
Systems in complex/novel domains, e.g. human genome, global change, 
manufacturing, health care, etc.

 Authors are invited to submit their manuscript in LNCS/LNAI style (maximum 
10 pages). All paper submissions will be handled electronically. Detailed 
submission instructions will be provided on the conference homepage. All 
submissions will be subject to review by the ISMIS'14 program committee.

 The ISMIS'14 proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in LNAI 
(Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence) and will be available at the 

 ISMIS'14 website:

 Paper submission deadline: February 3,  2014
 Notification of the review results: March 17, 2014
 Final Paper due: April 14, 2011
