AGI 2013 : The Sixth Conference on Artificial General Intelligence
Conference Series : Artificial General Intelligence
Call For Papers
* Mission *
The AGI conference series (http://www.agi-conf.org/) is the premier international forum for cutting-edge research focusing on the original goal of the AI field — the creation of thinking machines with general intelligence at the human level and ultimately beyond. The AGI conference series is held in cooperation with AAAI, and AGI-13 will co-locate with IJCAI-13.
* Topics *
As in prior AGI conferences, we welcome papers on all aspects of AGI R&D, with the key proviso that each paper should in some way contribute specifically to the development of Artificial General Intelligence.
* Special Session on Cognitive Robotics and AGI *
This Special Session will feature papers giving new AGI ideas inspired by current research in Cognitive Robotics.
* Workshops *
AGI-13 will include the following workshops:
1. Formalizing Mechanisms for Artificial General Intelligence and Cognition (Formal MAGIC)
2. Probability Theory or Not? Practical and Theoretical Concerns on Uncertainty Handling in AGI
See http://www.agi-conference.org/2013/workshops/ for details of the workshops.
* Tutorials / Demonstrations *
Tutorials and demonstrations will be held alongside the conference. For the requirements for proposals, please see the AGI-13 website.

Papers must be in English, and submitted in PDF format. There are two types of submissions:
1. Full papers (up to 10 pages): Original research in the above areas.
2. Technical Communications (up to 4 pages): Results and ideas with interest to the AGI audience, including reports about recent own publications, position papers, and preliminary results.
All accepted conference papers will be included in the proceedings, as well as presented at the conference as talks or as posters. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference and present the paper there.
