AISB opportunities Bulletin Item


The AISBQ is the regular newsletter of the AISB, which is sent out to around over 300 members of the 
society and made available on the Society's website. We invite members to submit articles for future
issues of the AISBQ; these could be:

   - overviews of research projects for a general AI audience
   - summaries of important areas of AI and related areas
   - ideas about new research areas in AI
   - critical analyses of developments in AI
   - reviews of books and software
   - reports on past or future AI-related events
   - new ideas that you would like to float and get reactions to

Articles should be between 400-1000 words, perhaps with a couple of diagrams.  Your article should 
be aimed at people within Artificial Intelligence and Simulation of Behaviour but who are not in 
your particular discipline. Bear in mind that this includes a very disparate collection of people, 
with a background in e.g. computer science, cognitive science, philosophy, electronics, psychology 
or medicine.
