Call For Papers


The 15th International Conference on
Artificial Intelligence: Methodology, Systems, Applications
AIMSA 2012

Varna, Bulgaria, 13-15th September, 2012

**** Submission deadline: June 03, 2012 ****
**** Proceedings published by Springer/LNCS ****

The AIMSA conference series has provided a biennial forum for the presentation of Artificial intelligence research and development since 1984. The conference, which is held in Bulgaria, covers the full range of topics in Artificial Intelligence and related disciplines and provides an ideal forum for international scientific exchange between Central/Eastern Europe and the rest of the world.

As its name indicates, the conference is dedicated to Artificial Intelligence in its entirety. However, for AIMSA 2012, we would like to put the emphasis on the application and leverage of Artificial Intelligence technologies in the context of knowledge creation, accessing, acquiring, and sharing to empower individuals and communities. A number of AI techniques play a key role in responding to these challenges. Artificial Intelligence is extensively used in the development of systems for effective management and flexible and personalized access to large knowledge bases, in the semantic web technologies that enable sharing and reuse of and reasoning over semantically annotated resources, in the emerging social semantic web applications that aid humans to collaboratively build semantics, in the construction of intelligent environments for supporting (human and agent) learning, etc. In building such intelligent applications, Artificial Intelligence techniques are typically combined with results from other disciplines such as the social sciences, distributed systems, databases, digital libraries, information retrieval, service oriented applications, etc.

The conference welcomes submissions of original, high quality papers in all areas of Artificial Intelligence, including but not limited to:

* AI in education
* Ambient intelligence
* Automated reasoning
* Computer vision
* Data mining and data analysis
* Data semantics
* Dialogue management and argumentation
* Distributed AI
* Human-computer interaction and AI
* Information integration
* Information retrieval
* Intelligent decision support
* Intelligent user interfaces
* Knowledge engineering
* Knowledge representation and reasoning
* Large scale knowledge management
* Logic and constraint programming
* Machine learning
* Multi-agent systems
* Multimedia systems
* Natural language processing
* Neural networks
* Ontologies (creating, linking, merging, reconciliation)
* Planning
* Robotics
* Semantic interoperability
* Semantic web for e-business and e-learning
* Semantic web services (description, invocation, composition)
* Social desktop and personalisation
* Social network analysis
* Tools and methodologies for multi-agent software systems
* Trust, privacy, and security on the web
* Visualization and modelling and AI
* Web-based technology and AI

All submissions will be subject to academic peer review by at least two members of the program committee. Selection criteria include accuracy and originality of ideas, clarity and significance of results, and quality of presentation.

For each accepted paper, at least one author is required to attend the conference to present the paper.

Submission deadline: June 03, 2012
Notification of acceptance: June 24, 2012
Deadline for camera-ready: July 07, 2012
Conference: September 13-15, 2012

Papers have to be submitted electronically (in PDF format) to the address:

Papers should be written in English and should be no more than 10 pages, font Times 11pt. Authors are requested to follow the LNCS Style. The first page should contain the title of the paper, names and addresses of all authors (including e-mail), an abstract (100-150 words) and a list of keywords.

Submissions should describe original research. Papers accepted for presentation at AIMSA 2012 cannot be presented or have been presented at another meeting with publicly available published proceedings. Papers that are being submitted to other conferences must indicate this on the title page, as must papers that contain significant overlap with previously published work.

Over lengthy or late submissions will be rejected without review. Notification of receipt and acceptance of papers will be sent to the first author.

The proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in their Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence subline of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

The official language of the conference is English.

AIMSA will be held at the Golden Sands Tourist Complex, 18 km from the north-east of Varna and 24 km from Varna airport. More information is available in the brochure at the conference web site.
