      Third Call for Papers and Posters
      Deadline: Tuesday 29th May 2012

      Organised by BCS SGAI: The British Computer Society Specialist Group
      on Artificial Intelligence (an ECCAI Member Society)

      The leading series of UK-based international conferences on
      Artificial Intelligence and one of the longest running AI conference
      series in Europe.

      CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
      http://www.bcs-sgai.org/ai2012/

      AI-2012 is the thirty-second SGAI International Conference on
      Innovative Techniques and Applications of Artificial Intelligence.

      The scope of the conference comprises the whole range of AI
      technologies and application areas. AI-2012 reviews recent technical
      advances in AI technologies and shows how these advances have been
      applied to solve business problems. Key features are:

      - Papers will be published in book form by Springer.

      - The Technical Stream presents the best of recent developments in
      AI,
      covering a wide range of technical areas.

      - The Application Stream is the largest annual showcase in Europe of
      real applications using AI technology.

      - It is expected that the best papers will be reprinted in a special
      issue of an international journal.

      - The Poster Session is a forum for disseminating new developments
      and
      latest work in progress, especially suited to MSc and PhD students.

      - Prizes for Best Paper in each stream and Best Poster.

      - The programme also includes tutorials and workshops to provide
      greater depth in selected topics. (These are free to delegates of the
      main conference, but separate registration is also available.)

      - UKCBR-12, the 17th UK CBR Workshop, will be co-located with AI-
      2012.

      - FAIRS-2012, the sixth annual forum for AI research students will
      immediately precede the AI-2012 conference at Peterhouse College on
      December 10th, 2012. The aim of FAIRS is to support student members
      of
      the AI community providing advice and feedback on their research
      plans and work. This event is free of charge for research students
      and
      no conference registration is required.

      - In addition to the formal sessions, the conference programme
      includes a welcome reception and a Gala Dinner.

      AI-2012 offers a valuable opportunity to keep up to date with
      developments in AI and to share experiences in the practical issues
      of
      developing AI systems.

      IMPORTANT DATES
      - Paper/Poster Submission: Tuesday 29th May 2012

      - Notification of Acceptance: Monday 16th July 2012

      - Camera Ready Paper: Tuesday 28th August 2012

      CONTRIBUTIONS
      Contributions are invited in the form of papers of up to fourteen A4
      pages presenting original work in AI. Contributions may be submitted
      to either of two streams for oral presentation, or a parallel poster
      session (six pages maximum).

      Technical Stream

      Areas of interest include (but are not restricted to): knowledge
      engineering; semantic web; constraint satisfaction; intelligent
      agents; machine learning; model based reasoning; verification and
      validation of AI systems; natural language understanding; speech-
      enabled systems; case based reasoning; neural networks; genetic
      algorithms; data mining and knowledge discovery in databases;
      knowledge representation, inference and reasoning; robotics and
      pervasive computing; qualitative and temporal reasoning; knowledge
      management; AI languages and environments; robotics and pervasive
      computing.

      Application Stream

      Case studies are welcomed describing the application of AI to real-
      world problems. Papers in recent years have covered all application
      domains, including commerce, manufacturing and government, and every
      major AI technique. In addition to case studies and specific
      applications of AI, we would welcome papers that discuss issues such
      as managing the transfer from research to production of AI-based
      products. Papers are selected to highlight critical areas of success
      (and failure) and to present the benefits and lessons of value to
      other developers. Submitted papers should make these points clear.
      Guidance notes for Application Stream authors are available from the
      website.

      Poster Session

      The Poster Session is intended for the presentation of work which
      meets the high standards of the conference, but which is more topical
      and preliminary than the work presented in the main two streams. It
      is
      an excellent forum for disseminating new developments and latest work
      in progress, especially suited to MSc and PhD students. Poster papers
      will be included as short papers (maximum 6 pages) in the proceedings
      volumes. Papers submitted to the Technical and Application streams
      will automatically be considered as posters if they fall short of the
      standard for oral presentation in full form.

      Publication of Papers

      Papers accepted for presentation at the conference will be published
      in book form by Springer.

      - The books will be prepared from camera-ready copy supplied by the
      authors of accepted papers.

      - Formatting specifications for the proceedings have been provided by
      the publisher and are available from the conference website.

      Submission of Papers

      Papers must be prepared in either Microsoft Word or Latex. Initial
      versions of papers should be submitted in PDF format only and
      uploaded
      to the conference website by the deadline given above at the latest.
      There are revised Word macro and Latex style files compared with
      previous years.

      - At least one author of each accepted paper must register for and
      attend the conference to present it in person, for the paper to be
      published.

      - Presenting authors will be asked to register for the conference at
      the discounted speakers' rate when they return the final camera-ready
      printed versions of their papers.

      Tutorials & workshops

      The Conference Committee invites proposals for tutorials and
      workshops to be presented on the first day of the conference. These
      should be directed in the first instance to the Tutorial/Workshop
      Organiser.

      Prizes

      There are cash prizes for the best paper submitted in each stream and
      a trophy plus a cash prize for the best poster, awarded on the basis
      of delegate voting. There is also a prize for the best refereed paper
      written by a student.

      All further information including details of the conference
      committee, program committees, paper format and uploading
      instructions is given on the conference website.
