ISMIS is intended to represent a wide range of topics of concern to scholars applying advanced techniques to areas as diverse as decision support, automated deduction, reasoning, knowledge based systems, machine learning, computer vision, robotics, planning, databases, information retrieval, etc. ISMIS provides a medium for exchanging scientific research and technological achievements accomplished by the international community. The focus of the work is on research in Intelligent systems. The conference addresses issues involving solutions of problems which are complex to be solved through conventional approaches and which require the simulation of intelligent thought processes, heuristics and applications of knowledge. The integration of these multiple approaches in solving complex problems is of particular importance. ISMIS provides a forum and a means for exchanging information for those interested purely in theory, those interested primarily in implementation, and those interested in specific research and industrial applications.
ISMIS 2006 invites submissions of original research contributions, as well as proposals for panels and workshops. Contributions for industry and applications sessions and software demonstrations also are solicited. The conference covers a broad range of topics, including the use of conventional approaches, as well as new challenges for advanced techniques for intelligent systems in any possible domain. This Symposium is intended to attract individuals who are actively engaged both in theoretical and practical aspects of intelligent systems. The goal is to provide a platform for a useful exchange between theoreticians and practitioners, and to foster the cross-fertilization of ideas in the following areas:
In addition, we solicit papers dealing with applications of Intelligent Systems in complex/novel domains, e.g. bioinformatics, global change, manufacturing, health care, etc.
Proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS/LNAI series (Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence) and will be available at the symposium.
Authors are invited to submit their manuscript in the LNCS/LNAI style (maximum 10 pages). Any further information concerning typesetting can be obtained directly from the Springer-Verlag authors' section. All paper submissions will be handled electronically. Detailed instructions will be provided on the submission section of the website.
A selected number of ISMIS 2006 accepted papers will be expanded and revised for possible inclusion in a special issue of a journal (to be announced).
