Artificial Intelligence (AI) research has broad applications in real world problems. Examples include control, planning and scheduling, pattern recognition, knowledge mining, software applications and strategy games. The ever-evolving needs in business both on a local and on a global scale demand better technologies for solving more and more complex problems. Such needs can be found in all industrial sectors and in any part of the world.

This workshop aims to be a meeting place where excellence in AI research meets the needs for solving dynamic and complex problems in the real world. The academic researchers, developers, and industrial practitioners will have extensive opportunities to present their original work, technological advances and practical problems. Participants can learn from each other and exchange their experiences in order to fine tune their activities in order to help each other better.

The main purposes of the MIWAI series of workshops are as follows:

•to provide a meeting place for AI researchers and practitioners in Thailand and beyond.

•to inform Thai students about cutting-edge AI research via the presence of outstanding international invited speakers.

•to raise the standards of practice of AI research in the whole of Thailand by providing Thai researchers and students with feedback from an internationally-renowned program committee.

Submission requirements
Submissions of the following three categories are invited:

Papers presenting new original work. Submitted papers should not exceed a length of 12 pages in the IEEE format style (templates here:, Regular papers will be reviewed on overall quality and relevance. Reviewing of category A papers will be (at least) double-blind. In order to make blind reviewing possible, the authors should follow that:

•The authors' names and institutions should not appear in the paper.
•Unpublished work of the authors should not be cited.
•Using "we" or "us" in reviews of literature should be avoided, e.g., "In [1] we have proposed..." should be changed to "In [1] the authors have proposed...".

The program committee will evaluate Category A papers as either “rejected” or “accepted as long paper” or “accepted as short paper”. All accepted category A papers (long and short) will be fully published in the proceedings.

Papers that have been accepted after June 1 2009 for AI-related refereed conferences or journals can be resubmitted and will be accepted as “compressed contributions”. Authors are invited to submit the published version (without page or format restriction) together with a 1 or 2-page abstract prepared in the IEEE format style (links to templates above). Note the above double-blind instructions apply only to category A papers, not to category B. 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.

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 master students are encouraged to submit papers presenting their applications and experiences. The maximum size of demonstration summaries is 2 pages (links to templates above). Reviewing of category C papers will be double-blind (see above under “category A” papers for details).

The workshop proceedings will be published with ISBN number.

At least one author of each accepted paper (in each submission category) is required to attend the workshop.

Language Requirements
As MIWAI is an international workshop, its official language is English. This means all submitting authors must submit an English language version of their paper, as well as present their paper in English if accepted for the workshop. To all our friends in the Thai AI community, this is the perfect opportunity to practice your English writing skills and, in so doing, make the wider international AI community aware of the exciting work you are doing! Do not be afraid of the English barrier. We will do our best to help you get through it.
