SYMPOSIUM ON AI AND CREATIVE LANGUAGE: STORIES AND HUMOUR

at the AISB'99 Convention, 6th-9th April 1999
Edinburgh College of Art
Division of Informatics, University of Edinburgh

CALL FOR PAPERS
http://www.csl.sony.co.jp/person/kimb/aisb99/

The AISB'99 Convention will be held in Edinburgh in April 1999. It
will consist of 13 workshops and symposia on a wide range of themes in
Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science. An underlying theme of
the Convention this year is the study of creativity, though not all of
the events include a creative element. Further details of AISB'99 will
be found at the conference web site, listed below.

Paper submissions are invited for the symposium entitled ``Symposium
on AI and Creative Language: Stories and Humour''.  Within the area of
``creativity'', there is a growing interest in the uses of language,
particularly the creation or interpretation of stories or humorous
texts. This two-day workshop will primarily explore these areas,
although it may be possible to consider other forms of linguistic
creativity such as poetry or neologisms.  Papers are invited which
treat these topics from an AI standpoint, for example formal analyses,
descriptions of implemented systems, or theoretical proposals.

The areas of interest of the symposium will include, but are not
limited to:

- analyses of particular genres of story or humour;
- descriptions of particular mechanisms underlying stories or humour;
- models of the generation of stories or humorous material;
- models of the interpretation of stories or humorous material;
- empirical studies of computational models of stories or humour;
- theoretical proposals for modelling or describing stories or humour.

It is essential that papers have some formal or computational
orientation.  While it is not mandatory to have a working
implementation to accompany the submission, highly informal or
literary discussions which have no clear connection to AI or
computation are not suitable.

SUBMISSION PROCEDURES:

Papers will be selected by anonymous peer review of extended abstracts
of not more than 4 A4 pages. A cover page should be supplied listing
the title, and the author's name and affiliation, but the extended
abstract itself should NOT identify the author. Deadlines are
listed in the timetable, below.

Submissions can be made electronically OR on paper. Electronic
submissions are preferred, if possible.

Electronic submissions should be sent by email to:
