AI-2015 is the thirty-fifth SGAI International Conference on
Innovative Techniques and Applications of Artificial Intelligence.
The scope of the conference comprises the whole range of AI
technologies and application areas. AI-2015 reviews recent technical
advances in AI technologies and shows how these advances have been
applied to solve business problems. Key features are:
- Papers will be published in book form by Springer.
- The Technical Stream presents the best of recent developments in
AI, covering a wide range of technical areas.
- The Application Stream is the largest annual showcase in Europe of
real applications using AI technology.
- It is expected that the best papers will be reprinted in a special
issue of an international journal.
- Both long and short papers, for oral and poster presentation
- Prizes for Best Paper in each stream and Best Poster.
- The programme also includes tutorials and workshops to provide
greater depth in selected topics. (These are free to delegates of the
main conference, but separate registration is also available.)
- UKCBR-15, the twentieth UK CBR Workshop, will be co-located with
- FAIRS-2015, the ninth annual forum for AI research students will
immediately precede the AI-2015 conference at Peterhouse College on
Monday December 14th, 2015. The aim of FAIRS is to support student
members of the AI community providing advice and feedback on their
research plans and work. This event is free of charge for research
students except for a contribution towards the cost of refreshments
and lunch in the College and no conference registration is required.
- In addition to the formal sessions, the conference programme
includes a welcome reception and a Gala Dinner.
AI-2015 offers a valuable opportunity to keep up to date with

Contributions are invited in the form of papers of up to fourteen A4
pages presenting original work in AI. Contributions may be submitted
to either of two streams for oral presentation, or a parallel poster
session (six pages maximum).
Areas of interest include (but are not restricted to): knowledge
engineering; semantic web; constraint satisfaction; intelligent
agents; machine learning; model based reasoning; verification and
validation of AI systems; natural language understanding;
speech-enabled systems; case based reasoning; neural networks;
genetic algorithms; data mining and knowledge discovery in databases;
knowledge representation, inference and reasoning; robotics and
pervasive computing; qualitative and temporal reasoning; knowledge
management; AI languages and environments; robotics and pervasive
Case studies are welcomed describing the application of AI to
real-world problems. Papers in recent years have covered all
application domains, including commerce, manufacturing and
government, and every major AI technique. In addition to case studies
and specific applications of AI, we would welcome papers that discuss
issues such as managing the transfer from research to production of
AI-based products. Papers are selected to highlight critical areas of
success (and failure) and to present the benefits and lessons of
value to other developers. Submitted papers should make these points
The Poster Session is intended for the presentation of work which
meets the high standards of the conference, but which is more topical
and preliminary than the work presented in the main two streams. It
is an excellent forum for disseminating new developments and latest
work in progress, especially suited to MSc and PhD students. Poster
papers will be included as short papers (maximum 6 pages) in the
proceedings volumes. Papers submitted to the Technical and
Application streams will automatically be considered as posters if
they fall short of the standard for oral presentation in full form.
