            **** Proceedings published by Springer/LNCS ****

SCOPE

The AIMSA conference series has provided a biennial forum for the 
presentation of Artificial intelligence research and development 
since 1984. The conference, which is held in Bulgaria, covers the 
full range of topics in Artificial Intelligence and related 
disciplines and provides an ideal forum for international scientific 
exchange between Central/Eastern Europe and the rest of the world.

As its name indicates the conference is dedicated to Artificial 
intelligence in its entirety. However, for AIMSA 2006, we would like 
to put the emphasis on a specific phenomenon that affects all areas 
of AI: the application and leverage of artificial intelligence 
technology in the context of human collaboration which today is 
mediated by the web. Artificial intelligence is used for supporting 
human communication in a wide variety of ways. For example, reasoning 
over the semantic web, analysing relationships between people, 
enhancing the user experience by learning from their behavior, 
applying natural language to large multilingual corpora, planning a 
combination of web services, adapting and personalising educational 
material, etc. All Artificial intelligence techniques are amenable to 
facilitating communication on the web. Moreover, these techniques are 
not deployed in isolation but are typically combined with results 
from other disciplines such as the social sciences, discrete 
mathematics, network computing, or cryptography. AIMSA 2006 aims to 
reflect this plethora of avenues whereby Artificial intelligence 
supports human collaboration based activities.

The conference welcomes submissions of original, high quality papers 
in all areas of Artificial Intelligence, including but not limited to:

accuracy and originality of ideas, clarity and significance of 
results, and quality of presentation.

For each accepted paper, at least one author is required to attend 
the conference to present the paper.

The best paper of the conference, as selected by the AIMSA 2006 
programme committee, will receive the Best Paper Award during the 
conference.

IMPORTANT DATES

Abstract submission deadline: April 21, 2006
Submission deadline: April 28, 2006
Notification of acceptance: June 10, 2006
Deadline for final papers: June 30, 2006

SUBMISSION DETAILS

Papers have to be submitted electronically on 
http://aimsa2006.inrialpes.fr. in PDF format. Author are requested to 
register by the site and submit an abstract first. They will be able 
to update their papers.

Papers should be written in English and should be no more than 10 
pages, font Times 11pt. Authors are requested to follow the LNCS 
Style. The first page should contain the title of the paper, names 
and addresses of all authors (including e-mail, if available), an 
abstract (100-150 words) and a list of keywords.

Submissions should describe original research. Papers accepted for 
presentation at AIMSA 2006 cannot be presented or have been presented 
at another meeting with publicly available published proceedings. 
Papers that are being submitted to other conferences must indicate 
this on the title page, as must papers that contain significant 
overlap with previously published work.

Over lengthy or late submissions will be rejected without review. 
Notification of receipt and acceptance of papers will be sent to the 
first author.

PROCEEDINGS

The proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in their Lecture 
notes in artificial intelligence subline of the Lecture notes in 
computer science series.

LANGUAGE
