International Organized Sessions

JSAI2012, The 26th Annual Conference of Japanese Society for Artificial Intelligence
Yamaguchi city, Japan, June 12-15, 2012
http://www.ai-gakkai.or.jp/conf/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 researches (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.

IOS-2: Alan Turing Year Special Session on AI Research That Can Change The World

Organizers

  • Rafal Rzepka (Hokkaido University)
  • Akinori Abe (NTT)

Aims

Alan Turing made a tremendous impact on the fields of computer science and artificial intelligence, and his ideas are also very influential in the mathematical theory of computation and developmental biology. June 2012 is the Centenary of Alan Turing’s birth, and by organizing our special session we wish to pay tribute to him and his great mind. In order to gather a wide variety of papers, we have set a broad range of topics to encourage participants to think about how their research could change the world – as Alan Turing’s research is constantly changing it even now. We believe that new ideas emerge on the borderlines between various fields, and as such we encourage submissions in English explaining your topic in a manner that allows researchers from other fields to easily comprehend your achievements, and also to imagine how your topic could be useful in other areas. Moreover, as the title of the session suggests, we ask potential contributors to introduce their vision of how influential their research is or could be in our everyday lives. Papers will be considered as candidates for a journal we are planning for late 2012. Your contribution should not exceed 10 pages and will be reviewed by an international program committee to preserve the quality of the proceedings.

http://www.ai-gakkai.or.jp/conf/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 researches (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.

How to Apply

Please send an email to danushka@iba.t.u-tokyo.ac.jp including the following information:

  1. Title of the session

No international organized session will be programmed in parallel. Therefore, participants of international organized sessions will be able to participate in all international organized sessions. In addition, we will have two invited keynotes (Prof. Setsuo Arikawa etc.). Those keynote talks will be simultaneously translated to English.

Moreover, we are planning to have a special issue from New Generation Computing (under proposal) Journal, which will be issued in July 2013.
