 The 13th International Conference on

Artificial Intelligence: Methodology, Systems, Applications

AIMSA 2008

- AI@Work -

Varna, Bulgaria, 4-6th September, 2008


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.

For AIMSA 2008, we would like to put the emphasis on the works on theories, experimentations, applications, and case studies that demonstrate in practice the added value and the impact of AI science, methodologies and techniques for the market, society, and culture. We believe that this vision of "AI@WORK" truly reflects the original intention of AIMSA, a conference dedicated to Artificial Intelligence in its entirety but with a special emphasis on "Methodology, Systems, and Applications", as explicitly stated in its name. According to this vision, we will also pay special attention to works that "cross the boundaries of AI", i.e., works that demonstrate the influence of AI to different fields of research and different scientific communities, such as Software Engineering, Data Bases, Distributed Systems, Information Systems, Information Retrieval, Service Oriented Applications, etc.

The conference welcomes submissions of original, high quality papers in all areas of Artificial Intelligence, including but not limited to:
- AI in education
- Ambient intelligence
- Automated reasoning
- Computer vision
- Data mining and data analysis
- Data semantics
- Dialogue management and argumentation
- Distributed AI
- AI and Human-computer interaction
- Information integration
- Information retrieval
- Intelligent decision support
- Intelligent user interfaces
- Knowledge engineering
- Knowledge representation and reasoning
- Large scale knowledge management
- Logic and constraint programming
- Machine learning
- Multi-agent systems
- Multimedia systems
- Natural language processing
- Neural networks
- Ontologies (creating, linking, merging, reconciliation)
- Planning
- Robotics
- Semantic peer-to-peer and grid systems
- Semantic interoperability
- Semantic web for e-business and e-learning
- Semantic web inference schemes
- Semantic web services (description, invocation, composition)
- Social desktop and personalisation
- Social network analysis
- Tools and methodologies for multi-agent software systems
- Trust, privacy, and security on the semantic web
- Visualization and modeling and AI
- Web-based technology and 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.

The best paper of the conference, as selected by the AIMSA 2008 programme committee, will receive the Best Paper Award during the conference.


Submission deadline: April 15, 2008
Notification of acceptance: May 30, 2008
Deadline for final papers: June 20, 2008
Conference: September 4-6, 2008

Papers have to be submitted electronically at

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 2008 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.


The proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in their Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence subline of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.


The official language of the conference is English.

AIMSA will be held at the Sunny Day Tourist Complex, 10km from the north-east of Varna and 16km from Varna airport. More information is available in the brochure at the conference web site.
