DEADLINE 14th March 2014 Notification of Acceptance: By 4th April 2014 Suggested deadline for Call for Symposium Proposals: 15th August 2014 Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org The Society for the Study of Artificial Intelligence and Simulation of Behaviour (AISB) sponsors an annual convention consisting of a collocation of symposia and workshops. The convention aims to provide a unique opportunity to promote emerging work which spans the full range of research within Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science. THE AISB CONVENTION The AISB Convention is the major UK Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science Event. It aims to function as a venue for the presentation of recent and emerging work in the fields of Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science and as a productive environment for networking and the formation of collaborations. The convention will have a convention organiser who has overall responsibility for the convention programme, local arrangements and financial management. Programme detail is mostly delegated to individual symposium organisers but the convention organiser is responsible for arranging plenary talks. The convention uniquely offers a supportive environment for the presentation of emerging work. In particular, it provides an excellent opportunity for students to present their research to an audience containing some of the most eminent researchers in the field. Further details of the role of the convention organiser are available on request from the AISB secretary (email@example.com).
