Call for Papers

What is Learning in Intelligent Systems?

Learning in Intelligent Systems is a development in Machine Learning that embraces an interdisciplinary perspective. Intelligent systems learn by improving through experience. This phenomenon is not restricted to human or machine and cuts across many fields, including Machine Learning, Psychology, Neuroscience, Education, Computational Linguistics, Ethology, and Economics, amongst others. Accordingly, Learning in Intelligent Systems takes an interdisciplinary approach to understanding learning, and seeks to bridge the gap between Machine Learning and other fields.

What is the GOAL of the track?

The goal of the Learning in Intelligent Systems track is to inform researchers of current problems and current efforts in extending the techniques of Machine Learning to fields studying intelligent systems.

Who might be interested?

The track of Learning in Intelligent Systems is a forum for researchers working in Machine Learning, Psychology, Neuroscience, Ethology, Biology, Economics, Computational Linguistics, Education, and related areas.

What kind of studies will be of interest?

While papers and contributions on traditional Machine Learning issues are always welcome, the track emphasizes and encourages interdisciplinary approaches by the Machine Learning community. Topics of interest include (but are in no way limited to)

1. Unsupervised learning and unlabeled data

2. Metacognition/lifetime learning

3. Semi-supervised learning

4. Graph-based approaches

5. Diffusion geometry

6. Graphical models

7. Vector space/IR models

8. Multiple modalities/learning transfer

9. Active learning

10. Learning through imitation

11. Abductive learning

12. Learning through question asking

13. Learning through play

14. Pedagogy

15. Language acquisition

16. Perceptual learning

17. One shot learning

18. Emotions and learning

Note: We invite original papers (i.e. work not previously submitted, in submission, or to be submitted to another conference during the reviewing process).

Submission Guidelines for the Learning in Intelligent Systems track

Interested authors (for the general Learning in Intelligent Systems track or the special topic) should format their papers according to AAAI formatting guidelines. The papers should be original work (i.e., not submitted, in submission, or submitted to another conference while in review). Papers should not exceed 6 pages (2 pages for a poster) and are due by November 23rd, 2009. For FLAIRS-23, the 2010 conference, the reviewing is a double blind process. Fake author names and affiliations must be used on submitted papers to provide double-blind reviewing. Papers must be submitted as PDF through the EasyChair conference system, which can be accessed through the main conference web site ( Note, do not use a fake name for your EasyChair login - your EasyChair account information is hidden from reviewers. Authors should indicate the special track of Learning in Intelligent Systems for submissions. The proceedings of FLAIRS will be published by the AAAI. Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign a form transferring copyright of their contribution to AAAI. An author of each accepted paper is required to register, attend, and present the paper at FLAIRS.

For researchers submitting to LIS, the following other special tracks that run alongside the main conference may be of interest:
1 Data Mining
2 Case-Based Reasoning
3 Artificial Intelligence Education
4 AI, Cognitive Semantic and Computational Linguistics : New Perspectives
5 Uncertain Reasoning
6 Applied Natural Language Processing
7 Games & Entertainment (GE) Special Track
8 AI Planning and Scheduling Special Track Proposal
9 Cognition and AI: Capturing Cognitive Plausibility and Informing Psychological Processes
10 AI and Second Language Learning
11 Computational Biology and Bioinformatics
12 Intelligent Tutoring Systems

Conference Proceedings

Papers will be refereed and all accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings, which will be published by AAAI Press.
