Call for Papers
AI'2011, the twenty-fourth Canadian Conference on Artificial Intelligence, invites papers that present original work in all areas of Artificial Intelligence, either theoretical or applied.
∙ Corinna Cortes, Head of Google Research, New York
∙ Regina Barzilay, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
∙ David Poole, University of British Columbia
Automatic text summarization (TS) has been a matter of active research for over a decade now. Doing TS really well would require insights from statistics, machine learning, linguistics and cognitive science, to name a few. Despite a great deal of research effort, state-of-the-art TS systems achieve summary quality much lower than even untrained human summarizers. There is room for improvement and much interesting work to do.
Graduate Student Symposium
The twenty-forth Canadian Conference on Artificial Intelligence, invites graduate students to submit extended abstracts of their thesis of up to 4 pages for possible inclusion in the AI 2011 Graduate Student Symposium and the Canadian AI proceedings published by Springer.
The Canadian AI Conference is again opening its doors to industry partners, in hopes of creating ties between emerging researchers and industry leaders to potentially allow commercialization of new technologies. Experience shows that when leading players combine their strengths and work with university experts towards a vision for the future, the result is something greater than what could be achieved separately.
The conference proceedings will be published as Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence by Springer. Papers must be written in English and have up to 12 pages in the Springer LNCS style.
Full paper submission due January 24th, 2011
Notification of acceptance February 25th, 2011
Final paper due March 7th, 2011
Conference: May 25th to May 27th, 2011
