JSAI2012, The 26th Annual Conference of Japanese Society for Artificial Intelligence
Yamaguchi city, Japan, June 12-15, 2012
“Annual Conference of JSAI” is the main conference of the Japanese Society for Artificial Intelligence (JSAI), which is held annually. In which major AI researchers (mainly from Japan) present their researchers (mainly in Japanese).
The 26th Annual Conference of JSAI (JSAI2012) will be held from 12th June 2012 to 15th June 2012 in Yamaguchi city, Yamaguchi Prefecture, Japan.
(city information: http://www.japan-i.jp/explorejapan/chugoku/yamaguchi/)
JSAI2012 will have “international organized sessions.” An organized session is a type of an invited session for which researchers organize a session with very novel or advanced theme and collect excellent papers. “International” means that presenters will be coming from all over the world, presentations will be performed in English, and papers will be written in English. Of course organizers will be able to call and invite speakers in their session.
We are now calling international organized session proposals. No restrictions other than the three conditions mentioned above will be imposed.
Organizers of International Organized Sessions must conduct the following:
• select a novel or an advanced topic for artificial intelligence, or an interdisciplinary (with AI) topic.
• collect several (excellent) papers on the topic.
• make a program of the session and participate in the JSAI2012 as a chair person.
Submitted papers must adhere to the paper format of JSAI2012. Information of paper format and paper length limitations etc. can be obtained from JSAI2012’s website (http://www.ai-gakkai.or.jp/conf/2012/).
For your information, the theme of the JSAI 2012 is “Culture, scientific technologies, and future.” We would be delighted if you consider this there. However, it is not your obligation to follow it. All proposals will be reviewed from the JSAI2012’s scope and several sessions regarded as suitable to JSAI2012 will be selected.
