Proceedings of the Ninth Midwest Artificial intelligence and Cognitive Science Conference
Russ Engineering Center,

THE MAICS conference is a relatively small regional conference that traditionally accepts papers from all areas of artificial intelligence and cognitive science, including computational linguistics, logic and automated reasoning, learning, knowledge representation, and philosophy of mind. Graduate students and junior faculty are especially encouraged to submit papers. The broad range of possible topics together with the fact that usually only about twenty to thirty submitted papers are accepted, which are mixed with presentations by well-known scientists, make the MAICS conference a very special event that has served as a first-time presentation opportunity for many graduate students and has even attracted international participants. This year the meeting takes place with a pre-conference workshop on "Information Fusion" organized by Raj P. Malhotra and is followed by the Human-Interaction with Complex Systems Symposium under the leadership of John Flach.
