[DMANET] ISAIM 2018: First Call for Papers


Fifteenth International Symposium on
ISAIM 2018
January 3-5, 2018
Fort Lauderdale, Florida

PAPER SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Tuesday, October 3, 2017

The International Symposium on Artificial Intelligence and Mathematics (ISAIM) is a biennial meeting that fosters interactions between mathematics, theoretical computer science, and artificial intelligence. This is the fifteenth Symposium in the series, which is sponsored by Annals of Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence. We seek submissions of recent results with a particular emphasis on the foundations of AI and mathematical methods used in AI. Papers describing applications are also encouraged, but the focus should be on principled lessons learned from the development of the application. Traditionally, the Symposium attracts participants from a variety of disciplines, thereby providing a unique forum for scientific exchange. The three-day Symposium includes invited speakers, presentations of technical papers, and special topic sessions.


o Boolean and pseudo-Boolean Functions
-Organized by Endre Boros, Rutgers University, and Yves Crama, University of Liege

o Formalising Robot Ethics
-Organized by Michael Fisher, University of Liverpool, and Marija Slavkovik, University of Bergen

o Topological Reasoning and Data Analyses
-Organized by Debasis Mitra, Florida Istitute of Technology

o Theory of Machine Learning
-Organized by Lev Reyzin, University of Illinois at Chicago


Paper submission will be electronic via the submission link to EasyChair on the Paper Submission page of the Symposium website (/isaim2018.cs.virginia.edu/). Papers must be formatted in accordance with the guidelines given there.

The submission deadline is Tuesday, October 3, 2017 (11:59PM PDT). Papers will be reviewed by members of the Program Committee. Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection by Tuesday, October 31, 2017. Final versions of accepted papers, for inclusion in the conference electronic proceedings, are due by Monday, November 27, 2017.

Work that has already been published as of the ISAIM submission deadline should not be submitted to ISAIM unless it introduces a significant addition to the previously published work. However, the ISAIM web site proceedings are not archival, so papers submitted to ISAIM can be under review at the time of submission and can be submitted elsewhere after ISAIM.

Authors of a selected set of papers from the Symposium will be invited to submit full versions of their papers for inclusion in a special volume of the Annals of Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence, published by Springer. Those invited submissions will be subject to refereeing at the usual standards of the journal, and authors will receive more details with the acceptance notice. Papers must of course be new and unpublished to be considered for the special volume.

Any questions regarding paper submission should be sent to the program committee chair at the email address <isaim2018 at mail DOT cs DOT virginia DOT edu>.
