      Suite 808, 1220 North Market Street
      Wilmington, Delaware, USA 19801

      PURPOSE / HISTORY:

      ICAI'06 is an international conference held simultaneously
      (ie, same location and dates) with a number of other
      joint conferences as part of WORLDCOMP'06 (The 2006 World
      Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and
      Applied Computing). WORLDCOMP'06 is the largest annual
      gathering of researchers in computer science, computer
      engineering and applied computing. Each of the joint
      conferences in WORLDCOMP is the premier conference for
      presentation of advances in their respective fields.
      WORLDCOMP'06 is composed of the following international
      conferences: Parallel & Distributed Processing Techniques &
      Applications; Scientific Computing; Grid Computing &
      Applications; Security & Management; Artificial Intelligence;
      Machine Learning; Software Engineering Research & Practice;
      Programming Languages & Compilers; Internet Computing; Semantic
      Web & Web Services; Computer Design; Real-Time Computing
      Systems & Applications; Embedded Systems & Applications; Wireless
      Networks; Pervasive Systems & Computing; Image Processing,
      Computer Vision, & Pattern Recognition; Computer Graphics &
      Virtual Reality; Modeling, Simulation & Visualization Methods;
      Computer Games Development; Frontiers in Education in Computer
      Science & Engineering; Foundations of Computer Science;
      e-Learning, e-Business, Enterprise Information Systems,
      e-Government, & Outsourcing; Data Mining; Information &
      Knowledge Engineering; Bioinformatics & Computational Biology;
      Computing in Nanotechnology; Engineering of Reconfigurable
      Systems & Algorithms; Communications in Computing.

      The motivation is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated
      research conferences into a coordinated research meeting
      held in a common place at a common time. The main goal
      is to provide a forum for exchange of ideas in a number
      of research areas that interact. The model used to form
      these annual conferences facilitates communication among
      researchers in different fields of computer science,
      computer engineering and applied computing. Both inward
      research (core areas of computer science and engineering)
      and outward research (multi-disciplinary, Inter-disciplinary,
      and applications) will be covered during the conferences.

          PURPOSE / HISTORY:

          ICAI'06 is an international conference held simultaneously
          (ie, same location and dates) with a number of other
          joint conferences as part of WORLDCOMP'06 (The 2006 World
          Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and
          Applied Computing). WORLDCOMP'06 is the largest annual
          gathering of researchers in computer science, computer
          engineering and applied computing. Each of the joint
          conferences in WORLDCOMP is the premier conference for
          presentation of advances in their respective fields.
          WORLDCOMP'06 is composed of the following international
          conferences: Parallel & Distributed Processing Techniques &
          Applications; Scientific Computing; Grid Computing &
          Applications; Security & Management; Artificial Intelligence;
          Machine Learning; Software Engineering Research & Practice;
          Programming Languages & Compilers; Internet Computing; Semantic
          Web & Web Services; Computer Design; Real-Time Computing
          Systems & Applications; Embedded Systems & Applications; Wireless
          Networks; Pervasive Systems & Computing; Image Processing,
          Computer Vision, & Pattern Recognition; Computer Graphics &
          Virtual Reality; Modeling, Simulation & Visualization Methods;
          Computer Games Development; Frontiers in Education in Computer
          Science & Engineering; Foundations of Computer Science;
          e-Learning, e-Business, Enterprise Information Systems,
          e-Government, & Outsourcing; Data Mining; Information &
          Knowledge Engineering; Bioinformatics & Computational Biology;
          Computing in Nanotechnology; Engineering of Reconfigurable
          Systems & Algorithms; Communications in Computing.

          The motivation is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated
          research conferences into a coordinated research meeting
          held in a common place at a common time. The main goal
          is to provide a forum for exchange of ideas in a number
          of research areas that interact. The model used to form
          these annual conferences facilitates communication among
          researchers in different fields of computer science,
          computer engineering and applied computing. Both inward
          research (core areas of computer science and engineering)
          and outward research (multi-disciplinary, Inter-disciplinary,
          and applications) will be covered during the conferences.

          PROPOSAL FOR ORGANIZING TECHNICAL SESSIONS:

          Each technical session will have at least 6 paper
          presentations (from different authors). The session
          chairs will be responsible for all aspects of their
          sessions; including, soliciting papers, reviewing,
          selecting, ... The names of session chairs will appear
          as Associate Editors in the conference proceedings and
          on the cover of the books.

          Proposals to organize technical sessions should include
          the following information: name and address (+ E-mail)
          of proposer, title of session, a 100-word description of
          the topic of the session, the name of the conference the
          session is submitted for consideration, and a short
          description on how the session will be advertised (in
          most cases, session proposers solicit papers from
          colleagues and researchers whose work is known to the
          session proposer). Mail your proposal to H. R. Arabnia
          (address is given above); E-mail submissions are preferred.
