Call For Papers
Computer Society of India SIGAI Workshop on Emerging Research Trends in AI, 2011
Technical Co-sponsor - IEEE Computer Society Bangalore Chapter
About The Workshop
Based on the success of the previous ERTAI workshop, conducted in 2010, CSI- SIGAI has decided to announce the next ERTAI workshop to be held during June 19-21 2011 at C-DAC Electronics City Bengaluru. The backdrop of this workshop remains the same as that of last year. That is, through ERTAI, we plan to continue to provide a forum where those pursuing research in AI can exchange ideas and seek guidance. And those who are seeking to enter into AI research can also get a valuable feel of current research going on in various streams in AI in industry as well as in academia. ERTAI 2011 will enable new and aspiring research scholars to identify relevant and useful research topics and get guidance on their approach and direction.
We invite papers that describe work-in-progress by various research scholars spanning many areas including language processing, multi-agent systems, web mining, information retrieval, semantic web, e-learning, optimization problems, pattern recognition, etc. We also invite suggestions on relevant topics for invited talks -- both in technical areas and and research methology areas. The detailed program for the workshop is being finalized and will be announced shortly.
Proposed Structure of Workshop
It will be a three day programme consisting of,
* Invited talks covering current trends, specific challenges, etc. in Artificial Intelligence
* Invited talks on mentoring research scholars on publication, research methodology, etc.
* Presentations by those currently pursuing research in AI area.
We will have a panel of experienced researchers to evaluate and mentor the research presentations.
Call For Papers:
For the research presentations, we are now inviting brief research papers of 5-6 pages, outlining the problem being addressed, approach followed vis-à-vis existing approaches, current status / results, and future plans. A subset will be short-listed for presentation, based on a formal review process. Papers must have significant AI content to be considered for presentation. Relevant topics include (but are not limited to):
Knowledge Representation and Reasoning
State Space Search
Vision & Perception
Intelligent User Interfaces
Uncertainty in AI
Natural Language Processing
Planning & Scheduling
Target audience will be primarily:
* Faculty members pursuing research involving AI as the base or as a tool for an application.
* Faculty members interested in pursuing research and exploring areas / options.
* Research scholars working for a post graduate degree.
* Students seriously interested in research, specifically on AI.
