                           CALL FOR PAPERS

                The 12th International Conference on
       Artificial Intelligence: Methodology, Systems, Applications
                             AIMSA 2006
                       - AI, people and the web -
                Varna, Bulgaria, 13-15th September, 2006



The AIMSA conference series has provided a biennial forum for the
presentation of AI 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. AIMSA 2006 is supported by ECCAI, European Coordinating
Committee for Artificial Intelligence.

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 personalizing
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.


AIMSA 2006 will be held at the Sunny Day Tourist Complex, 10 km to the
north-east of Varna and 16 km from Varna Airport.


The official language of the conference is English.

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

Over lengthy or late submissions will be rejected without review.

Notification of receipt and acceptance of papers will be sent to the first
