AISB will publish a workshop proceedings for all accepted papers and abstracts. In addition, we are negotiating with international journals, e.g. Cognitive Science, to create a special issue for the best scientific papers from the workshop (as assessed by the participants.) Final negotiations will depend on the quality of papers submitted to the workshop.

Workshop participants will also discuss creating a further publication (either a book or journal special issue) emphasizing the techniques and technology used by the successful modelers.

Papers and Participation:

Workshop participation is limited to 40 people. Preference will be given to those who submit papers, and we have received 36 papers (many with multiple authors) so it is unlikely we will be accepting any additional posters. (Nevertheless, see poster submission deadlines below if you really want to come.)

Workshop papers were from 4,000 to 8,000 words, although we accepted papers of up to 8 pages. For later publications, we expect the length will be extended for at least a selection of papers. Papers should be submitted in the IJCAI format. Papers are NOT required to be anonymous and should include the author names and affiliation.

Please email submitted papers as a single .pdf file to mnas.ijcai05@gmail.com.  Be sure to include in the body of the email:

  2. the title and abstract, and 
  3. between three and five keywords.
