Call for AAAI-06 Technical Conference Papers
Call for Papers and Participation
Abstract Submission Deadline: Thursday, February 16
Paper Submission Deadline: February 21
For the artificial intelligence community, 2006 is a special year since we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Dartmouth project where the term “artificial intelligence” was first introduced as the topic of investigation for this project. AAAI-06, the Twenty-First National Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AI), will celebrate the growth and diversity of our field and include a number of new features to encourage wide participation of researchers and practitioners in the field and related disciplines. The conference organizers encourage the following types of submissions, described in detail in this call for papers:
- Senior Member Papers
- AAAI Nectar papers
- Technical Conference papers (this document)
- A Special Technical Papers Track on Artificial intelligence and the Web)
- A Special Technical Papers Track on Integrated Intelligent Capabilities
- Member Posters
AAAI-06 welcomes submissions on traditional AI topics as well as novel cross-cutting work in related areas. Topics include but are not limited to the following:
- cognitive architectures
- cognitive modeling
- commonsense reasoning
- game playing and interactive entertainment
- information integration
- knowledge bases and expert systems
- knowledge representation and reasoning
- machine learning and data mining
- natural language processing
- neural networks
- planning and problem solving
- probabilistic reasoning
- semantic web
- vision and perception
AAAI-06 specifically encourages submissions that combine results from multiple research areas within and outside AI, such as the following:
- autonomic computing
- autonomous behavior and learning
- grounded representations
- knowledge bases through text extraction
- large-scope and large-scale challenge problems
- learning in problem solving situations
- natural language interaction with intelligent systems
- perception and sensor networks
- robust and scalable architectures for distributed representation and reasoning
- security and privacy
A complete list of keywords is available on this site.
AAAI-06 is also seeking submissions for two new special tracks of conference papers: “Integrated Intelligent Capabilities” and “Artificial Intelligence and the Web.” The topics relevant to these two tracks are described in detail in their respective calls for papers. These tracks will have additional review criteria, and will have program committees of reviewers with appropriate background in those areas. The submissions to these tracks will also be reviewed in most cases by members of the conference program committee and overseen by the track cochairs and the conference program chairs. These tracks will be an integral part of the conference program and will be subject to the high standards and rigorous review that are traditional in AAAI. They will be allocated consecutive sessions at the conference and as a result a portion of the program will be devoted solely to each of the tracks.
Program committee members will identify papers they are qualified to review based on the information submitted electronically (the paper's title, keywords, and abstract). Their reviewing will be done blind to the identities of the authors and their institutions. Submissions to the Special Technical Paper Tracks will be reviewed by the program committees for the track as well as by the program committee for the Technical Papers. The program committee's reviews will make recommendations to the senior program committee, which in turn will make recommendations to the program cochairs. Although the program cochairs will formally make all final decisions, in practice almost all decisions will be made earlier in the process.
Technical conference submissions, whether on general topics or Special Track topics, may be no longer than six (6) pages including references, and formatted in AAAI two-column, camera-ready style. Submissions of technical conference papers should be prepared to be blind to the identities of the authors.
For information on submitting your paper, registering at the paper submission site, blind review preparation, submissions to other conferences and journals, and format requirements, please see the submissions instructions page.
Accepted technical conference papers, including special track papers on “Integrated Intelligent Capabilites” and “AI and the Web” will be allocated six (6) pages in the conference proceedings. Up to two (2) additional pages may be used at a cost to the authors of $275 per page. Final papers exceeding eight (8) pages and those violating the instructions to authors will not be included in the proceedings. Authors will be required to transfer copyright of their paper to AAAI.
Accepted AAAI Nectar papers will be allocated four (4) pages in the conference proceedings. Accepted senior member papers will be allocated two (2) pages in the conference proceedings. Accepted student papers will be allocated two (2) pages in the conference proceedings. No additional pages may be requested for AAAI Nectar papers, senior member papers, or student papers.
Accepted member abstracts will be accessible on the AAAI conference web site to all AAAI members. They will not be included in the conference proceedings.
