Conference Theme

The scope of ISMIS is intended to represent a wide range of topics on applying Artificial Intelligence techniques to areas as diverse as decision support, automated deduction, reasoning, knowledge based systems, machine learning, computer vision, robotics, planning, databases, information retrieval, etc. The focus is on research in intelligent systems. The conference addresses issues involving solutions to problems that are complex to be solved through conventional approaches and that require the simulation of intelligent thought processes, heuristics and applications of knowledge.
The integration of these multiple approaches in solving complex problems is of particular importance. ISMIS provides a forum and a means for exchanging information for those interested purely in theory, those interested primarily in implementation, and those interested in specific research and industrial applications.

Topics of Interest

ISMIS'12 is intended to attract individuals who are actively engaged both in theoretical and practical aspects of intelligent systems. The goal is to provide a platform for a useful exchange between theoreticians and practitioners, and to foster the cross-fertilization of ideas in the following areas (but are not limited to):

1)Active Media Human-Computer Interaction
2)Autonomic and Evolutionary Computation
3)Digital Libraries
4)Intelligent Agent Technology
5)Intelligent Information Retrieval
6)Intelligent Information Systems
7)Intelligent Language Processing
8)Knowledge Representation and Integration
9)Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining
10)Knowledge Visualization
11)Logic for Artificial Intelligence
12)Music Information Retrieval
13)Soft Computing
14)Text Mining
15)Web Intelligence
16)Web Mining
17)Web Services
18)Social Computing
19)Recommender Systems

In addition, we include four special sessions
( and one industry session

Special Session 1: Technology Intelligence and Applications Special Session
Special Session 2: Product Configuration Special Session
Special Session 3: Human Factors in Information Retrieval Special Session
Special Session 4: Social Recommender Systems

Industry Session on Human Social Intelligence in the Industry

Paper Submission and Publications

Authors are invited to submit their manuscript in LNCS/LNAI style (maximum 10 pages). All paper submissions will be handled electronically. Detailed instructions will be provided on the conference homepage. All submissions will be subject to review by the ISMIS'12 program committee. The ISMIS'12 proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in LNAI (Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence) and will be available at the conference. Any necessary information concerning typesetting can be obtained directly from Springer at Springer-Verlag page.
