CALL FOR NOMINATIONS ~ EDITOR OF THE AISBQ


CALL FOR NOMINATIONS ~ EDITOR OF THE AISBQ
==========================================

The editor of the AISBQ is responsible for the regular production of
the Society newsletter.  This appears once every quarter.  It is 12
pages long and contains news items and research reports.  These primarily
focus on Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science research
in the UK but also cover worldwide research and political, industrial
and social aspects of the discipline.

The editor is responsible for commissioning, editing, laying out and
proofreading the publication.  The committee is prepared to fund
administrative support for the role if appropriate. The editor will
also liaise with the AISB administrative Office (CASA, University of
Sussex), who distribute the newsletter.  This includes negotiating the
publication budget with the AISB committee and ensuring that that
budget is adhered to.  Other responsibilities include maintaining a
web page for the publication and bringing publicity opportunities to
the attention of the committee.

The editor of the AISBQ is one of the highest profile roles in the
society and the one which is most obvious to members.  It is elected
on a three year basis.  All members of the Society have the right to
stand as Editor of the Quarterly.  Non-members are also encouraged to
stand but must commit to joining the Society if elected.  We would
like to encourage you to consider nominating any society member for
the post, irrespective of whether they are an academic or
industrialist, Professor or PhD student, and irrespective of the area
of Artificial Intelligence they work in.  The newsletter should
reflect the entire breadth of the membership of the Society.  If you
are interested please feel free to contact the existing editor Colin
Johnson, aisbq10@aisb.org.uk, about what is involved.


If you wish to nominate someone as a candidate, please complete the
candidature form below with yourself as Nominator and someone else
as Seconder.  Feel free to nominate yourself.  Send the form to:


Dr. Louise A. Dennis
AISB Secretary
secretary10@aisb.org.uk

The Nominator and Seconder must be members of the
AISB and the Candidate, if not a member, should indicate willingness
to join. 
NB.  It is possible to hold both the Editorship of AISBQ and a regular
committee post.

The deadline for nominations is the 30th April.
