Bar-Ilan is pleased to announce its sixth biennial Symposium on the Foundations of Artificial Intelligence, to be held on June 23-25, 1999 in Ramat Gan, Israel. The symposium is international in scope, with invited lectures by leading researchers and contributed papers on foundations of AI. The invited speakers for BISFAI-99 include: Stan Rosenschein of Stanford University, Leo Joskowicz of Hebrew University, and Reid Simmons of Carnegie Mellon University.
We solicit substantial research papers in all areas of Artificial Intelligence, including but not limited to,
We especially encourage papers on the theme of this year's symposium-
Authors should submit papers or extended abstracts (preferrably postscript files via email) together with a text version of the title and abstract, to either of the program chairs, Leora Morgenstern (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Solomon Eyal Shimony (email@example.com). Papers and extended abstracts should be at most twelve pages in length, excluding references. Questions on content, format, or appropriateness should be addressed to the program chairs.
Due to the delay in the Israeli semester this year, there will be both early and late submission deadlines. Authors of papers received by March 2, 1999 will be notified of acceptance by April 12, 1999. Authors of late submissions (until April 23, 1999) will be notified by May 13, 1999. A final version of the accepted papers will be available at the BISFAI-99 website. Selected refereed full-length papers will be published in a special issue of the Annals of Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence as a permanent record of the symposium. These should be submitted shortly after the conclusion of the symposium.
Multiple Submissions: Papers may be submitted to BISFAI even if submitted to other conferences or journals, because the BISFAI website is not archival. Of course, if a paper is accepted at an archival conference such as AAAI or IJCAI and also presented at BISFAI, this paper must be substantially revised and/or extended before submitting it to the special issue of the Annals of Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence. Previously presented or published papers are not acceptable for BISFAI.
Call for demos: We solicit proposals for demonstrations of innovative applications of artificial intelligence. Details can be found at the call for demos.
Information on registration, accommodations, and other relevant topics will appear in future announcements. You may contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information. A mirror site in the USA is at http://www-formal.stanford.edu/leora/bisfai
