Call For Papers

AISSAI'2010 - CALL FOR PAPERS - DEADLINE: Monday, 17 May 2010

Workshop on
Artificial Intelligence for Simulation|Simulation for Artificial Intelligence

To be held at the
19th European Conference on Artificial Intelligence, ECAI'2010
Lisbon, Portugal, August 16–20, 2010


Aim and Scope
Computer Simulation represents a way to exploit a computational model, either
to evaluate designs, plans, models without actually bringing them into existence
in the real world or context of application, or to evaluate theories and models
of complex systems by envisioning the effects of the modelling choices, with the
aim of gaining insight into their functioning, works, processes and mechanisms.

Results, models and techniques developed in the context of Artificial
Intelligence (AI) have often been applied in the context of simulation, from the
adoption of agent-based approaches to the modelling of complex systems to the
employment of learning techniques for simulation model design, calibration and
optimization. On the other hand, simulation has also often been employed by AI
for tasks that vary from the systematic testing of models, instruments and
theories, to the realization of what-if scenarios supporting specific forms of
reasoning techniques.

The aim of this first edition of the AISSAI Workshop is to bring together
competencies, experiences, reflections on the founding assumptions and best
practices related to the employment of AI techniques for simulation and for the
exploitation of simulation techniques in the context of AI research. The
workshop is meant as a forum for researchers active or interested in the
relationships between AI and simulation, supporting the discussion of results,
relevant research advances and methodological reflections, fostering thus
interdisciplinary discussion and cross fertilization of the involved disciplines
and application areas.

Topics of Interest
We invite papers on all aspects relating to AI techniques in simulation and
simulation techniques for AI research and applications, with particular
attention to interdisciplinary experiences. Both reports on practical results
and recent research contributions will be considered. Topics of interest
include, but are not limited to, the following:

* epistemological background of simulation
* models of humans using simulation in daily reasoning
* general model life cycle issue
* empirical AI: the role of simulation in testing AI instruments

AI for Simulation:
* the intelligent model/simulation optimization techniques (a wider view to
optimization-based calibration e.g. using a GA...)
* automated consistency checking using constraint satisfaction techniques, etc
* learning techniques for simulation model design and optimization
* role playing or other games as intelligent elicitation of model contents
* intelligent user interfaces to modelling and models
* intelligent visualization of simulation dynamics
* intelligent data and text analysis in the context of modelling and simulation
* qualitative simulation and qualitative model representation/description
(naive physics, naive geography...)
* logic-based modelling techniques
* intelligent/agent-based simulation infrastructure
* agent-based modelling and simulation
* embedding detailed cognitive models of humans

Simulation for AI:
* simulation-based testbeds and contests for AI
* best practices for developing simulation-based testbeds for AI instruments
and theories
* simulation in cognitive models (for evaluating action outcomes...)
* simulation as problem solving/decision making

Applications and Tools:
* AI and combined multi-model simulation
* AI and simulation in games and entertainment
* Virtual characters
* Intelligent tools for simulation and simulation-based tools for AI (and
Simulation for AI)
* Case studies and applications in domains such as: simulation of human and
social dynamics, military applications, industrial engineering,
manufacturing, supply chain management, swarm intelligence, ethological/
ecological/biological modelling, artificial life, training and tutoring, etc.

Paper Submission and Publication
The AISSAI Workshop welcomes both full technical as well as short position
papers. Authors must follow the ECAI style guidelines
in the preparation of their contributions. Full papers must not exceed 8 pages,
whereas short papers must not exceed 4 pages in lengh.

Contributions will be reviewed at least by two members of the International
Programme Committee on the basis of technical quality, relevance, significance,
and clarity, and those selected for presentation will be included in the
Workshop local proceedings. Detailed Instructions on the submission process are
available on the Workshop Web site (

A Special Issue of a prominet International Journal in the field is also being
considered, which will include a selected number of papers presented at the
Workshop, whose authors will be invited to extend and improve according to the
comments and suggestions gathered during the meeting.

Important Dates
* Paper submission: Monday, 17 May 2010
* Notification of paper acceptance: Thursday, 10 June 2010
* Camera-ready papers due: Sunday, 27 June 2010

Inquiries and Further Information
Please, send any inquires and requests by e-mail to the Workshop chairs:

* Franziska Klügl, Örebro University, Sweden
* Rosaldo Rossetti, Porto University, Portugal
* Sabine Timpf, University of Zurich, Switzerland
