AI-2006: Cambridge, UK, December 11th - 13th 2006

Organised by BCS SGAI: The British Computer Society Specialist
Group on Artificial Intelligence (an ECCAI Member Society)


AI-2006 is the Twenty-sixth 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-2006 reviews recent
technical advances in AI technologies and to show how these
advances have been applied to solve business problems. Key
features of AI-2006 are:

- 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.
- The best papers will be published in a special issue of the
journal Knowledge Based Systems.
- The Poster Session is a forum for disseminiating new
developments and latest work in progress, especially suited to
MSc and PhD students.
- Prizes for Best Paper in each stream and Best Poster.
- The programme also includes tutorials and workshops to provide
greater depth in selected topics.
- The Machine Intelligence (MI) competition exhibts working systems that
are a significant step toward machine intelligence.
- UKCBR11, the 11th UK CBR Workshop, will be co-located with AI-2006.
- The conference qualifies for the IEE and BCS CPD schemes.
- AI-2006 will be held at Peterhouse College in Cambridge.
- In addition to the formal sessions, the conference programme includes a
welcome reception and a Gala Dinner.

AI-2006 offers a valuable opportunity to keep up to date with
developments in AI and to share experiences in the practical
issues of developing AI systems.


- Paper/Poster Submission: Monday 5th June 2006
(This deadline will not be extended)
- Notification of Acceptance: Monday 24th July 2006
- Camera Ready Paper: Monday 4th September 2006


Contributions are invited in the form of papers of up to fourteen A4
pages presenting original work in AI. Contributions are welcome to two
streams, and a parallel poster session.

Technical Stream:

Areas of interest include (but are not restricted to): knowledge based
systems; 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; robotics and pervasive computing.

Application Stream:

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
