CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: AISB 2017: Society with AI, 19-21 April, Bath, UK

The original AI conference, the Convention of the Society for the Study of Artificial 
Intelligence and the Simulation of Behaviour, is being held in Bath this year.  This year’s 
convention theme is Society with AI, which is reflected in some of the symposia along with a 
wide range of other interests. The meeting is three full days of contributed academic 
presentations, invited Keynotes, and socialising opportunities.  In addition we have several 
satellite events:

* A free co-located tutorial/hackathon, held in Bath city centre the afternoon and evening of 
April 18th. Be sure to catch an early train so you can join in!  Note: requires separate 
registration as seats are limited.
* A public panel: The Ethical Impact of AI on Society (supported by ESRC & AHRC)
* Optional tourism opportunities on Saturday (22nd) to Bath, the spas, Stonehenge, Avebury, 
or Lacock.

Please see our invited speakers and symposium schedule below.  Please register and come to the
