      CALL FOR SYMPOSIA PROPOSALS: AISB '13, 2-5 April 2013, University of
      Exeter, UK

      (DEADLINE: 07:09:2012)
      Contact - aisb13@...

      AISB 2013 will be held at the University of Exeter, UK from the 2nd to
      the 5th April 2013. For more information on the convention please see
      the website at http://www.aisb.org.uk/events/aisb13.

      The AISB 2013 convention will follow the same overall structure as
      previous conventions, namely a set of co-located symposia and we are
      seeking proposals for these symposia. Typical symposia last for one or
      two days, and can include any type of event of academic benefit: talks,
      posters, panels,
      discussions, demonstrations, outreach sessions, etc.

      Proposals for Symposia are welcomed in all areas of AI and cognitive
      science. Some suggested areas are shown below, although ANY proposal in
      the field of AI or cognitive science will be welcomed:

      - Knowledge Representation
      - Computational theory of mind
      - Computational Intelligence
      - The Turing Test and Philosophical Foundations of AI
      - Consciousness
      - Human and Machine Creativity
      - Simulation of Human and Animal Behaviour
      - Ethics of AI
      - Machine Learning
      - Cognitive Neuroscience
      - Robotics


      Proposing a Symposium
      Each symposium is organized by its own programme committee. The
      committee proposes the symposium, defines the area(s) and structure for
      it, issues calls for abstracts/papers etc., manages the process of
      selecting submitted papers for inclusion, and compiles an electronic
      file for inclusion in the convention proceedings.

      Proposers are welcome to submit, or be involved with more than one

      Proposers need not already be members the AISB and will not be required
      to become members. They will of course be encouraged to join!

      Deadline for symposium proposals: 7th September 2012

      Notification of acceptance: 31st September 2012


      Submissions should consist of the following
      - A title.
      - A 300-1000 word description of the scope of the symposium, and its
      relevance to the convention along with the nature of the academic events
      (talks, posters, panels, demonstrations, etc.).
      - Whether the symposium is intended as a sequel to a symposium at a
      previous AISB conference.
      - An indication of whether submissions will be by abstract, extended
      abstract or full paper.
      - Your preferences about the intended length of the symposium as a
      number of days (preferably one day or two, but anything from half a day
      to three days), together with a brief justification.
      - A description (up to 500 words) of any experience you have in
      organization of academic research meetings (please note that it is not a
      requirement that you have such experience).

      mind for the symposium.
