Artificial Intelligence (AI) research has broad applications in real world
problems. Examples include control, planning and scheduling, pattern
recognition, knowledge mining, software applications and strategy games.
The ever-evolving needs in business both on a local and on a global scale
demand better technologies for solving more and more complex problems. Such
needs can be found in all industrial sectors and in any part of the world.

This workshop aims to be a meeting place where excellence in AI research
meets the needs for solving dynamic and complex problems in the real world.
The academic researchers, developers, and industrial practitioners will
have extensive opportunities to present their original work, technological
advances and practical problems. Participants can learn from each other and
exchange their experiences in order to fine tune their activities in order
to help each other better.

The main purposes of the MIWAI series of workshops are as follows:

. to provide a meeting place for AI researchers and practitioners in
Thailand and beyond.

. to inform Thai students about cutting-edge AI research via the presence
of outstanding international invited speakers.

. to raise the standards of practice of AI research in the whole of
Thailand by providing Thai researchers and students with feedback from an
internationally-renowned program committee.

Submission requirements
Submissions of the following three categories are invited:

Papers presenting new original work. Submitted papers should not exceed a
length of 12 pages in the IEEE format style (templates here:
http://khamreang.msu.ac.th/miwai10/MIWAI_2010/wordtemplate.zip) Regular
papers will be reviewed on overall quality and relevance. Reviewing of
category A papers will be (at least) double-blind. In order to make blind
reviewing possible, the authors should follow that:

. The authors' names and institutions should not appear in the paper.
. Unpublished work of the authors should not be cited.
. Using "we" or "us" in reviews of literature should be avoided, e.g.,
"In [1] we have proposed..." should be changed to "In [1] the authors have

The program committee will evaluate Category A papers as either rejectedé
or accepted as a long paper, or accepted as a short paper. All accepted
category A papers (long and short) will be fully published in the

Papers that have been accepted after June 1 2009 for AI-related refereed
conferences or journals can be resubmitted and will be accepted as
"compressed contributions". Authors are invited to submit the published
version (without page or format restriction) together with a 1 or 2-page
abstract prepared in the IEEE format style (links to templates above). Note
the above double-blind instructions apply only to category A papers, not to
category B. The abstract of the paper will be published in the proceedings.
Every author may submit at most one B-paper of which they are the
corresponding author, and only if they do not submit any A-paper as
corresponding author.

Proposals for demonstrations will be evaluated based on submitted
demonstration summaries stating the following: the purpose of the system to
be demonstrated, its user groups, the organization or project for which it
is developed, the developers, and the technology used. In addition, the
system requirements and the duration of the demo (not exceeding 30 minutes)
should be mentioned. Especially master students are encouraged to submit
papers presenting their applications and experiences. The maximum size of
demonstration summaries is 2 pages (links to templates above). Reviewing of
category C papers will be double-blind (see above under "category A" papers
for details).

The workshop proceedings will be published with ISBN number.

At least one author of each accepted paper (in each submission category) is
required to attend the workshop.

Language Requirements
As MIWAI is an international workshop, its official language is English.
This means all submitting authors must submit an English language version
of their paper, as well as present their paper in English if accepted for
the workshop.
