|CALL FOR PAPERS|
Initiated in 1984, the biennial Artificial Intelligence: Methodology, Systems, Applications (AIMSA) conference is a premier forum for exchanging information and research results on AI theory and principles along with applications of intelligent system technology. The conference traditionally brings together academic and industrial researchers from all areas of AI to share their ideas and experiences and learn about the research in contemporary AI. Under the general theme of "AI in the Data Driven World", the 17th edition of AIMSA will be held in the beautiful Varna area, Bulgaria. With excellent opportunities for outdoor activities, water sports and gastronomy, Varna promises to be a wonderful venue for a memorable conference.TOPICS
The conference welcomes submissions of original, high quality papers in all areas of Artificial Intelligence, including but not limited to:
We especially welcome papers and posters demonstrating successful AI applications in the Real World, as well as papers that bring useful computational technologies from other areas of computer science into AI.
All submissions will be subject to academic peer review by at least two members of the program committee. Selection criteria include 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.
