Call for Papers

What is Learning in Intelligent Systems?
Learning in Intelligent Systems is a development in Machine Learning that embraces an interdisciplinary perspective. Intelligent systems learn by improving through experience. This phenomenon is not restricted to human or machine and cuts across many fields, including Machine Learning, Psychology, Neuroscience, Education, Computational Linguistics, Ethology, and Economics, amongst others. Accordingly, Learning in Intelligent Systems takes an interdisciplinary approach to understanding learning, and seeks to bridge the gap between Machine Learning and other fields.

What is the GOAL of the track?
The goal of the Learning in Intelligent Systems track is to inform researchers of current problems and current efforts in extending the techniques of Machine Learning to fields studying intelligent systems.

Who might be interested?
The track of Learning in Intelligent Systems is a forum for researchers working in Machine Learning, Psychology, Neuroscience, Ethology, Biology, Economics, Computational Linguistics, Education, and related areas.

What kind of studies will be of interest?
While papers and contributions on traditional Machine Learning issues are always welcome, the track emphasizes and encourages interdisciplinary approaches by the Machine Learning community. Topics of interest include (but are in no way limited to)
1. Unsupervised learning and unlabeled data
2. Metacognition/lifetime learning
3. Semi-supervised learning
4. Graph-based approaches
5. Diffusion geometry
6. Graphical models
7. Vector space/IR models
8. Multiple modalities/learning transfer
9. Active learning
10. Learning through imitation
11. Abductive learning
12. Learning through question asking
13. Learning through play
14. Pedagogy
15. Language acquisition
16. Perceptual learning
17. One shot learning
18. Emotions and learning

Note: We invite original papers (i.e. work not previously submitted, in submission, or to be submitted to another conference during the reviewing process).

Submission Guidelines for the Learning in Intelligent Systems track
Interested authors (for the general Learning in Intelligent Systems track or the special topic) should format their papers according to AAAI formatting guidelines. The papers should be original work (i.e., not submitted, in submission, or submitted to another conference while in review). Papers should not exceed 6 pages (2 pages for a poster) and are due by November 23rd, 2009. For FLAIRS-23, the 2010 conference, the reviewing is a double blind process. Fake author names and affiliations must be used on submitted papers to provide double-blind reviewing. Papers must be submitted as PDF through the EasyChair conference system, which can be accessed through the main conference web site (http://www.FLAIRS-23.info). Note, do not use a fake name for your EasyChair login - your EasyChair account information is hidden from reviewers. Authors should indicate the special track of Learning in Intelligent Systems for submissions. The proceedings of FLAIRS will be published by the AAAI. Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign a form transferring copyright of their contribution to AAAI. An author of each accepted paper is required to register, attend, and present the paper at FLAIRS.

Special Tracks
Call for Special Tracks
Special tracks, held in parallel with the general conference, are an integral part of the conference. They provide researchers in focused areas the opportunity to meet and present their work, and offer a forum for interaction among the broader community of artificial intelligence researchers. Their papers are required to meet the same standards and are published in the conference proceedings.
Topics of interest are in all areas related to artificial intelligence. For example, last year's special tracks included: AI Education; AI Planning and Scheduling; Applied Natural Language Processing; Case-Based Reasoning; Data Mining; Design, Evaluation, and Refinement of Intelligent Systems (DERIS); Games and Entertainment; Intelligent Tutoring Systems; Semantics, Ontologies, and Computational Linguistics; and Uncertain Reasoning.
We encourage proposals for topics that have run previously. Even special tracks that have run for a number of years may need or benefit from new leadership support and perspective, so please do not hesitate to indicate interest in an area, or to contact the Special Tracks Coordinator if you have questions about proposing on a particular topic. We are also particularly interested in fresh tracks in areas such as Machine Learning or AI in English as a Second Language, but all proposals for tracks are very much encouraged.

Conference Proceedings
Papers will be refereed and all accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings, which will be published by AAAI Press.
