AISB 2007: Call for Convention proposals
DEADLINE: 1st September 2005
Contact: [log in to unmask]

******************************* AISB 2007 *****************************

                     CALL FOR CONVENTION PROPOSALS
                                (revised)

*********************** DEADLINE: 1 September 2005 ********************

The Society for the Study of Artificial Intelligence and Simulation of
Behaviour (AISB) sponsors an annual convention consisting of a
collocation of themed symposia and workshops in areas of Artificial
Intelligence and Cognitive Science.  This is a call for proposals to
host the 2007 Convention.

***********************************************************************
THE AISB CONVENTION

The AISB Convention is the major annual UK Artificial Intelligence and
Cognitive Science Event.  In the past decade it has been hosted by a
number of prestigious institutions including the Universities of
Birmingham,  Edinburgh, Sussex and York.  It aims to function as a
venue for the presentation of recent and emerging work in the fields
of Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science and as a productive
environment for networking and the formation of collaborations.   The
convention exists as a series of themed symposia and workshops
together with some additional plenary talks.

The convention will have a convention organiser who has has overall
responsibility for the convention program, local arrangements and
financial management. However, program detail is mostly delegated to
individual symposium organisers but the convention organiser is
responsible for arranging plenary talks.

Each convention has a broad theme within which the plenary talks and
the majority of the symposia should fit.

All full description of the role of the convention organiser is
available on request from the SSAISB secretary ([log in to unmask])
and also from the SSAISB Web Site
(http://www.aisb.org.uk/convention/organisation.shtml).

***********************************************************************
ABOUT THE SSAISB

their importance in the scientific world and among the wider public,

world stage.
