Preliminary Call for Papers

ASAI 2002 seeks original contributions in a wide spectrum of applications of the 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 paper sessions presenting both mature work and new ideas in research and applications. Submissions can be full papers addressing any topic of artificial intelligence or short papers describing ongoing research projects at academic or development environments. An international program committee using criteria appropriate to their category will review the papers. Papers may be accepted for presentation as talks in sessions. Submissions are due on May 11st 2002. Delayed submissions will most likely be rejected.

ASAI 2002 will be part of JAIIO 2002, the 31st Argentine Meeting on Computer Science and Operational Research, organized by the Argentine Computer Science and Operational Research Society. The JAIIO Conference will be held on September 9-13, including other symposia, tutorials and student contests.

The submissions of papers and ongoing research projects must follow the LNCS format ( All contributions, of maximum 12 pages length, should be submitted by-email in ghostview-readable Postscript or PDF. For diffusion reason, papers in English are strongly preferred, but in Spanish they will be also acceptable. A separated e-mail must be sent (in ASCII) with the title of the paper, the abstract, name and filiation/s of the authors (including complete address, e-mail account and phone/fax number. Please, specify corresponding author.), a maximum of five keywords and the topics (at most three) which the work classifies.

The format for the camera-ready copy will be informed together with the acceptance letter. Receipt of a submission will be acknowledged immediately to the corresponding author.

Electronic submissions must be sent to
