CALL FOR PAPERS - SAIS 2012

(We hope to soon have more information available!)

The 27th annual workshop of the
Swedish Artificial Intelligence Society (SAIS)

May 14 - 15, 2012 Örebro, Sweden

The 27th annual workshop of the Swedish Artificial Intelligence Society (SAIS) will take place in Örebro, Sweden on May 14-15, 2012. The SAIS workshop provides an ideal forum for contacts among AI researchers and practitioners in Sweden and nearby countries, as well as for establishing links with related research disciplines and industry.

The purpose of the SAIS workshop is:
* To give PhD students an opportunity to present their research to a friendly and knowledgeable audience and receive valuable feedback.
* To provide a forum for established researchers and practitioners to present past and current research contributing to the state of the art of AI research and applications.
* To provide an informal social event where AI researchers and practitioners can meet.

In addition to the regular presentations there will be invited talks and presentations by the winners of the SAIS Master's Thesis Award.

We invite two types of contributions to the SAIS workshop:
* Original research papers
* Position papers from research groups or companies

The main purpose of position papers is to communicate research activities of individuals and groups in Sweden and neighboring countries. Such papers should describe current research/application challenges or current research/application endeavors.

All papers will be carefully reviewed by the program committee.
Accepted papers will be published in the electronic workshop proceedings. Copyright stays with the authors and authors of previously unpublished papers accepted to the SAIS workshop are encouraged to submit these to other workshops or conferences.

Original papers are not to exceed ten (10) pages, including all figures and references, in two-column A4 article format with 10pt font (detailed instructions are provided on the workshop webpage). Papers
may be accepted for oral presentation or as posters. Position papers are limited to six (6) pages. All submissions should be in PDF and must be written in English. Papers should be submitted through
