AI*IA 2014

Calls for Workshops, Tutorials and Demos

The symposium of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence (AIIA) is a traditional two-yearly meeting of researchers working on theory and applications in Artificial Intelligence. The XIII symposium will be hosted by the Department of Computer Science at the University of Pisa.

AI*IA 2014 will be centred on thematic workshops, tutorials, panels, doctoral consortium, demo session, plenary sessions with invited speaker seminars, and a special track on the theme Artificial Intelligence for Society and Economy.

We hope that the 2014 meeting will strengthen awareness that AI is assuming a central role in the competitive strategies of the present scenario of rapid changes. AI can significantly support societal and economic development due to the rapidly emerging demand for innovative technologies in many application areas both in the public and private sectors.


Call for Workshops

AI*IA Working Groups, scientific and industrial research groups, and individual researchers are invited to submit proposals of workshops at the address   aiia2014@di.unipi.it.

A proposal must include:

  • Workshop title and acronym
  • Names and contacts of workshop chairs
  • Motivations and scientific relevance
  • Length of the workshop (half a day, full day)
  • Organisational details such as:
    • thematic panels;
    • demo sessions;
    • invited talks.

Every workshop is encouraged to support the Symposium track Artificial Intelligence for Society and Economy through the direct contribution of the workshop organizers or of representatives from the reference research community by offering short talks in the track session about:

  • success stories in the solution of a real large-impact problem, co-presented with public bodies or companies involved;
  • challenges on societal or industrial problems that arise from the Workshop AI area, that could possibly be promoted by public bodies or companies;

or by presenting systems/services demos with industrial relevance.
In this way the workshops will collectively support the cross-fertilization of ideas between researchers and industry representatives as well as between the different AI areas.

Workshop organizers will be notified about the acceptance/rejection of their proposal within 15 (fifteen) days upon reception. Proposals will be served in a FIFO way until the capacity of the symposium location will be reached.
Workshop organizers will manage on their own the submission, review, and publishing process. However, the key dates and the publication policy must be shared with the symposium organizers. Informal proceedings of workshops will be made available on the symposium web site. Extended versions of selected AI*IA 2014 workshop papers will be considered for a special issue of the Intelligenza Artificiale journal.
One free registration waiver for invited speakers is granted for each workshop.

IMPORTANT DATES

Workshop proposal deadline: 14 March 2014


Call for Tutorials

Scientific and industrial research groups, and individual researchers are invited to submit proposals of tutorials at the address   aiia2014@di.unipi.it.

A proposal must include:

  • Tutorial title
  • Names, contacts, and brief CV of tutorialists
  • Motivations and scientific or industrial relevance/demands
  • Relatedness to the Artificial Intelligence for Society and Economy topic
  • A list of potentially interested audience (public bodies, companies, scholars, researchers)
  • Duration

Tutorials will typically last 2 hours.

Training tutorials on applications, methods, systems and software libraries for the advancement of society, for enhancing the competitiveness of the industry, and for promoting AI*IA as a primary reference among public bodies and private companies are particularly welcome. Such tutorials are in fact specifically close to the spirit of this year track Artificial Intelligence for Society and Economy.

IMPORTANT DATES

Tutorial proposal deadline: 16 June 2014


Call for Demos

Scientific and industrial research groups, and individual researchers are invited to submit proposals of demos at the address   aiia2014@di.unipi.it.

A proposal must include:

  • Demo title
  • Names and contacts of presenters
  • Motivations and scientific or industrial relevance
  • Relatedness to the Artificial Intelligence for Society and Economy topic
  • Link to a web site or to a scientific paper describing the demo

Demos will be hosted in the multimedia room of the Department of Computer Science, which offers video projectors, desktop virtualization, and a video wall.

IMPORTANT DATES

Demo proposal deadline: 15 September 2014
