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.
