VIII Argentine Symposium on Artificial Intelligence
4th – 5th September, 2006
Centro de Congresos y Exposiciones Gobernador Emilio Civit, Mendoza, Argentina


ASAI, the Argentine Symposium on Artificial Intelligence, is an annual event intended to be the main forum of the Artificial Intelligence (AI) community
in Argentina. The symposium aims at providing a forum for researchers and AI community members to discuss and exchange ideas and experiences on diverse
topics of AI. Previous ASAI editions stimulated presentations on both applications of AI and new tools and foundations currently under development.

The Eighth Argentine Symposium on Artificial Intelligence (ASAI 2006) will be held during 4th to 5th September 2006, in Mendoza, Argentina. ASAI 2006 will
be part of the 35th JAIIO, the 35th Argentine Conference on Informatics and Operational Research, organized by SADIO.

Topics of particular interest include (without being limited to):

- Machine Learning
- Intelligent Agents and Multi-Agent Systems
- Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining
- AI Foundations (philosophy, epistemology, economics, etc.)
- Human-Computer Interaction
- Virtual Reality
- Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition
- Evolutionary Computation
- Innovative applications of Artificial Intelligence (Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Education, Internet, Law, Music, etc.)
- Knowledge Acquisition
- Knowledge Representation and Reasoning
- Natural Language Processing
- Speech Processing
- Image Processing
- Planning and Scheduling
- Robotics
- Hybrid systems (fuzzy, evolutionary, neural, symbolic, etc.)
- Intelligent Information Retrieval

Paper Submission

ASAI 2006 seeks original contributions in a wide spectrum of Artificial Intelligence, ranging from state-of-the-art academic research to industrial
and business applications having a significant impact. The symposium will consist of invited talks and regular paper sessions presenting both mature work
and new ideas in theoretical research and applications.

Submissions are due before April 28th 2006. All papers received before the deadline will be peer-reviewed by referees of the area.
The submission of manuscripts must follow the format available at All contributions, of maximum 12-page
length, should be submitted in Ghostview-readable Postscript or PDF formats. For diffusion reasons, papers in English are strongly recommended (Spanish
is also acceptable).

Manuscripts must be uploaded at ASAI 2006 submission site:

The receipt of a submission will be acknowledged immediately to the corresponding author. Information on the format of the camera-ready copy will be sent
by email with the acceptance letter.


All accepted papers will be published in JAIIO 2006 Proceedings. At least one of the authors will be required to register and attend the symposium to present the paper.
Extended versions of selected papers accepted for previous ASAI meetings have been published as special issues in the Revista Iberoamericana de Inteligencia
Artificial, edited by the Spanish Association for Artificial Intelligence ( A similar avenue is going to be considered
for ASAI 2006.

Important Dates

* April 28, 2006: Deadline for submissions of papers
* June 23, 2006: Notification of Acceptance/Rejection
