********************************************************************** 

  

The BNAIC 2008 will be held at Bad Boekelo, Boekelo, the Netherlands, and is organized under the auspices of the Belgian-Dutch Association for Artificial Intelligence (BNVKI) and the Dutch Research School for Information and Knowledge Systems(SIKS). The conference aims at presenting an overview of current research in artificial intelligence in Belgium and The Netherlands. BNAIC 2008 is organized by the Human Media Interaction (HMI) group of the University of Twente. 

  

GENERAL AND PROGRAM CHAIRS 

Anton Nijholt, University of Twente 

Maja Pantic, Imperial College London, University of Twente 

  

  

TOPICS 

Possible topics of submissions include, but are not limited to: 

  

* AI for Ambient Intelligence 

* AI for Games & Entertainment 

* Embodied Artificial Intelligence 

* Intelligent Agents & Multi-agent Systems 

* Knowledge Representation, Knowledge Management & Knowledge-based Systems 

* Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining 

* Logic and Logic Programming 

* Machine Learning, Evolutionary Algorithm & Neural Networks 

* Natural language and Speech Processing 

* AI Applications 

  

We particularly encourage submissions for the three special sessions: 

  

(1) AI for Ambient Intelligence 

This session will focus on the current research in modelling and implementing intelligence in smart environments, allowing re-active and pro-active support for users of these environments, and allowing natural interaction between humans and their environment. 

  

(2) AI for Games & Entertainment 

This session will provide an overview of the current research on intelligent and human-centred systems for serious games, training and simulation, entertainment applications, digital narrative, music and art. 

  

(3) AI for Virtual Humans, Embodied Agents and Robots 

This session will present the current research that is aimed at artificial intelligence for embodied agents/interfaces, where the embodiment may take the form of virtual characters or robots, addressing topics such as the perception and the generation of lifelike communicative behaviour. 

  

  

SUBMISSION 

Submissions of the following three types are invited: 

  

TYPE A: REGULAR PAPERS 

Papers presenting new original work. Submitted papers should not exceed a length of 8 pages. These papers will be reviewed on overall quality and relevance. A-Papers can be accepted for either oral or poster presentation. All accepted papers will be fully published in the proceedings. 

  

TYPE B: COMPRESSED CONTRIBUTIONS 

Papers that have been accepted after June 1st, 2007 for AI-related refereed conferences or journals can be resubmitted and will be accepted as compressed contributions. Authors are invited to submit the officially published version (without page restriction) together with a one or two-page abstract. B-Papers will be accepted for either oral or poster presentation. The abstract of the paper will be published in the proceedings. Every author may submit at most one B-paper of which they are the corresponding author, and only if they do not submit any A-paper as corresponding author. 

  

TYPE C: DEMONSTRATIONS & APPLICATIONS 

Proposals for demonstrations will be evaluated based on submitted demonstration summaries stating the following: the purpose of the system to be demonstrated, its user groups, the organization or project for which it is developed, the developers, and the technology used. In addition, the system requirements and the duration of the demo (not exceeding 30 minutes) should be mentioned. Especially researchers from industry are encouraged to submit papers presenting their applications and experiences. The maximum size of demonstration summaries is 2 pages (in English). 

  

Papers and demonstration summaries should be submitted electronically. More details can be found at the BNAIC 2008 website (http://hmi.ewi.utwente.nl/bnaic2008). Submissions should be accompanied by a message stating the submission type (A, B, or C) and an abstract of the paper in plain text. Note that a separate author registration is required for each B-type contribution. Proper receipt of submissions will be acknowledged by e-mail. The deadline for submissions is June 18th, 2008. Submission implies willingness of at least one author to register for BNAIC and present the paper. For each paper, a separate author registration is required. Authors keep the copyright of their submissions. The BNAIC Proceedings are published under ISSN series number 1568-7805.
