AISB 2023 : AISB Convention 2023
Call For Papers
AISB Convention 2023
13-14 April 2023
Swansea, Wales, UK
The AISB Convention is a flourishing annual conference that thrives from an interdisciplinary audience and facilitates discourse amongst a diverse set of researchers and research cultures.
The 2023 convention of the Society for the Study of Artificial Intelligence and Simulation of Behaviour (AISB) will be held as a hybrid in-person and online event 13-14 April 2023. The convention will consist of several tracks based on popular symposia of previous AISB conventions instead of separately organised symposia. This decision was made to streamline the processes involved in organising the convention in the context of reduced timeframes due to COVID-19 disruptions from the past years and the longer-term changes this has brought about for the reserach community. In addition to the thematic tracks, we will run a general track that can accommodate papers on any topic related to AI. Each track acts like a mini conference with its own chair and programme committee.
Please see below for a list of tracks for 2023.
AI & Games (AIG)
This track focuses on the application of artificial intelligence or intelligent-like techniques, frameworks and theories to the creation of intelligent games.
AI can be used in any manner suitable in the game, from the algorithm to making the game more engaging, personalised, and/or interactive.
The following non-exhaustive list of research and practice shows potential submission topics:
Use of AI techniques (e.g. planning, learning, evolution etc.)
Design and engineering of AI components
Procedural content generation
Intelligent or adaptive player interaction
Data-driven player modelling
Agent decision making systems
Interactive narrative generation
Intelligent narrative technologies
Serious games & gamification
AI Ethics (AIE)
Recent years have seen an increased awareness of ethical issues stemming from a lack of responsibility in the design and deployment of AI- and data-driven technology systems. This track explores solutions to these issues. Some topics of interest:
AI ethics principles
Implementing ethical reasoning
Computational Creativity (CC)
Computational creativity is continuing to attract researchers from both arts and science backgrounds. Philosophers, cognitive psychologists, computer scientists and artists have all contributed to and enriched the literature.
Many argue a machine is creative if it simulates or replicates human creativity (e.g. evaluation of AI systems via a Turing-style test), while others have conceived of computational creativity as an inherently different discipline, where computer generated (art)work should not be judged on the same terms, i.e. being necessarily producible by a human artist, or having similar attributes, etc.
More general topics of interest for this symposium include, but are not limited to:
Novel systems and theories in computational creativity, in any domain, e.g. drawing and painting, music, storytelling, poetry, conversation, games, etc.
The evaluation of computational creative systems, processes and artefacts
Theory of computational aesthetics
Representational issues in creativity, including visual and perceptual representations
Social aspects of computational creativity, and intellectual property issues
Creative autonomy and constraint
Computational appreciation of artefacts, including human artwork
Philosophy & AI (AIP)
With its origins in the Philosophy after AI symposium from previous AISB Conventions, this track sets out to investigate the philosophical and linguistic perspectives of the research paths which deal with language as it is conceived by AI. Contributions to a general philosophical discourse on AI are also welcome.
We invite talks on the following (but not exclusively) topics:
Linguistics and AI;
AI research on language;
Learning, creativity and AI;
Meaning and AI;
Creativity, machine-learning and language;
Robots and communication;
Truth, post-truth and AI;
Social media, devices and human sociality.
General Track (GT)
This track accommodates AI research that does not align with any of the other special tracks. Possible topics include:
Agents and multi-agent systems
Agent-based social simulation
Verification of AI systems
Combining learning and reasoning
AI & cyber security
Natural language processing
Submissions to any of the tracks are in the form of extended abstracts (max 2 pages) and are subject to peer review. Proceedings will then accommodate final papers as short or regular papers. These are limited to the following page restrictions.
Extended abstract (max. 2 pages)
Short paper (max. 4 pages)
Regular paper (max. 8 pages)
Page limits include references. Please use Springer Nature LaTeX or Word templates to prepare your papers.
Templates can be found at:
https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html (LaTeX & Word)
Papers can cover new work, work-in-progress, or previously published material. Extended versions of the best original papers will be invited to submit to a special issue of Connection Science (Taylor & Francis).
