Call for Workshops ISMIS 2009

The Eighteenth International Symposium on
Methodologies for Intelligent Systems (ISMIS'09)

September 14-17, 2009
University of Economics, Prague, Czech Republic

The scope of ISMIS'09 is intended to represent a wide range of topics on applying Artificial Intelligence techniques to areas as diverse as decision support, automated deduction, reasoning, knowledge based systems, machine learning, computer vision, robotics, planning, databases, information retrieval, etc.

Besides the main technical program, ISMIS'09 will host a small number of workshops on specific or interdisciplinary topics related to the main symposium themes. The workshops should provide the opportunity to present and discuss ongoing work and new ideas.

The organizers of accepted workshops will be responsible for their own paper selection process, publicity (i.e., website and call for papers), program design and proceedings production. They will be required to closely cooperate with the Workshop Chair and the ISMIS'09 local organizers to finalize all organizational details. The ISMIS'09 organizers will be responsible for registration management, proceeding distribution, publishing the link to workshop information on the ISMIS'09 web site, and room reservation.

The workshop attendees must pay the ISMIS'09 workshop registration fee. Registering to the ISMIS symposium is not mandatory for workshop attendees.
