Call for Papers

This Call for Papers is also available in text format.

In 1934 Alan M. Turing argued that machines could imitate thought and, in the essay "Computing Machinery and Intelligence", he proposed what is now known as the Turing Test. A computer and a human are compared by a panel of judges, who address the same questions to both and review their answers. If the judges cannot make distinctions between the two answers, the machine may be considered intelligent.

For celebrating the 100th anniversary of Alan Turing's birth, the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence organizes a workshop aimed at divulging the practical uses of Artificial Intelligence. To this aim, we call for demonstrators (e.g. videos), demos, proposals, systems exploiting AI theories and techniques, short papers which present ideas, and which are written in such a way to make them accessible to a broad public. Prizes will be awarded to different categories of submissions.

The workshop will be organized as a poster session. Each contribution will have some space for a poster and demos and systems will be shown to the public. The best contributions will additionally be presented during a plenary session of AI*IA 2012.

All kinds of experiences are welcome! Three categories of contribution are possible: (1) student experiences inside AI courses (e.g. laboratory demos), (2) research and academic experiences, (3) industrial experiences. Beside the poster session, selected contributions will be presented at the workshop. Presentations will be open to a broad public, and authors are invited to specify the kind of audience their contributions aim at involving.

Each proposal (demos, demonstrators, videos, systems exploiting AI results, ideas) must be submitted in the form of a paper written either in English or in Italian, and formatted according to the Springer LNCS style. The paper must not exceed 5 pages. Ideally, it should contain a description of the contribution (in the case of demos, it should contain also some details about the demonstration itself). Morevoer, the five-page paper should contain a high-level description of the AI techniques exploited within the specific proposal, and a short list of bibliographic references: these parts should be organized and written to address a general audience, and should help readers without any AI background to understand the contribution and the relation with AI.

Paper submission is electronic via the conference website.
