ASAI, the Argentine Symposium on Artificial Intelligence, is an annual event intended to be the main forum of the Artificial Intelligence (AI) community in Argentina. The symposium aims at providing a forum for researchers and AI community members to discuss and exchange ideas and experiences on diverse topics of AI. Previous ASAI editions stimulated presentations on both applications of AI and new tools and foundations currently under development.

The Ninth Argentine Symposium on Artificial Intelligence (ASAI 2007) will be held during August 27-28 in Mar del Plata, Argentina. ASAI 2007 will be part of the 36th JAIIO, the 36th Argentine Meetings on Informatics and Operations Research organized by SADIO, the Argentine Society for Informatics and Operations Research.

Topics of particular interest include (without being limited to):

- AI Development, Tools and Methodologies
- AI Foundations (Philosophy, Epistemology, Economics, etc.)
- Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition
- Evolutionary Computation
- Human-Computer Interaction
- Hybrid Systems (Fuzzy, Evolutionary, Neural, Symbolic, etc.)
- Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence (Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Education, Internet, Law, Music, etc.)
- Intelligent Agents and Multi-Agent Systems
- Intelligent Information Retrieval
- Knowledge Engineering
- Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining
- Knowledge Representation and Reasoning
- Machine Learning
- Natural Language Processing
- Planning and Scheduling
- Robotics

Paper Submission

ASAI 2007 seeks original contributions in a wide spectrum of Artificial
Intelligence, ranging from state-of-the-art academic research to industrial and business applications having a significant impact. The symposium will consist of invited talks and regular paper sessions presenting both mature work and new ideas in theoretical research and applications.

Submissions are due on April 30, 2007. Delayed submissions will most likely be rejected. All papers received before the deadline will be peer-reviewed by referees of the area.

The submission of manuscripts must follow the LNCS (Lecture Notes on Computer Science) format available at:
All contributions, of maximum 12-page length, should be submitted in
Ghostview-readable Postscript or PDF formats. For diffusion reasons, papers in English are strongly recommended (Spanish is also acceptable). The submission site will be available for paper submissions beginning early March through April 30, 2007.

The receipt of a submission will be acknowledged immediately to the
corresponding author. Information on the format of the camera-ready copy will be sent by email with the acceptance letter.


All accepted papers will be published in JAIIO 2007 Proceedings. At least one of the authors will be required to register and attend the symposium to present the paper.

Extended versions of selected papers accepted for previous ASAI meetings have been published as special issues in the Revista Iberoamericana de
Inteligencia Artificial, edited by the Spanish Association for Artificial Intelligence (AEPIA), and the Electronic Journal of SADIO. A similar avenue is under consideration for ASAI 2007.

Important Dates

- Paper Submission Deadline: April 30, 2007
- Notification of Acceptance/Rejection: June 18, 2007
- Deadline for Camera Ready Submissions: June 25, 2007
