The IJCAI-99 Program Committee invites proposals for the Tutorial Program for IJCAI-99, to be held in Stockholm, Sweden. Tutorials will be held in the period of August 1-2, immediately before the start of the main conference.
Tutorials will be offered both on standard topics and on new and more advanced topics.
A list of suggested topics for tutorials is given below; this list is only a guide, however, and other topics will be considered.
Suggested topics for tutorialsAnalogical and Inductive Inference
Logics for AI and Inference Techniques
Reasoning About Knowledge
Temporal and Spatial Reasoning
Probabilistic Reasoning and Uncertainty
Planning and Scheduling
Neural Networks - Principles and Applications
Natural Language Processing
Mobile Robot Navigation

Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining
Intelligent Environments to Support Human Learning
Innovative Applications of AI Techniques
AI in Engineering Design
AI in Education
Those interested in presenting a tutorial should submit a proposal to the IJCAI-99 Tutorial Chair, Prof. Boi Faltings. A tutorial proposal should contain the following information:
Those submitting a proposal should keep in mind that tutorials are intended to provide an overview of the field; they should present reasonably well established information in a balanced way. Tutorials should not be used to advocate a single avenue of research, nor should they promote a product.
Proposals must be received by October 1, 1998. Decisions about topics and speakers will be made by November 4, 1998. Accepted tutorial presenters must provide title and abstract for their tutorial, and a brief biography and photograph for publicity, by December 1, 1998. They will then be sent a set of guidelines for the preparation of course materials, which will be due on April 30, 1999. Please note that IJCAI will normally duplicate no more than 200 pages per participant.
IJCAI reserves the right to cancel any tutorial if deadlines are missed or if too few attendees register for the tutorial to support the costs of running the tutorial.
Proposals should be sent to:
Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (LIA)
Computer Science Department (DI)
Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL)
