ASAI 2013 - XIV Argentine Symposium on Artificial Intelligence

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 XIV Argentine Symposium on Artificial Intelligence (ASAI 2013) will be held during the week 16th - 20th September 2013, in Córdoba, Argentina, at the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba - Facultad de Matemática, Astronomía y Física (FAMAF).
ASAI 2013 will be part of the 42th JAIIO, the 42th Argentine Conference on Informatics, organized by SADIO. JAIIO is organized as a series of thematic symposia including topics such as software engineering, artificial intelligence, technology, agroinformatics, high performance computing, industrial informatics, free software, law, health, information society, and a students contest.

Paper Submission 

ASAI 2013 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 mature work (full papers) in theoretical research and applications. A poster session will be devoted to the presentation of new ideas and less mature work in general (extended abstracts).
Submissions are due on April 29th 2013. Submissions can be made through the SADIO's OCS system. All papers will be peer-reviewed by referents of the area.

The submission of manuscripts must follow the format available at The page limit for a full paper is 12 pages. Extended abstracts describing novel research visions, work-in-progress or less mature results are also welcome, with a limit of 4 pages. All contributions should be submitted in PDF formats. All the symposia at 42 JAIIO use SADIO's conference management system to handle submissions. To upload your contribution you first need to register and sign in. If you have any problems, check the detailed instructions about registration and submission.

For diffusion reasons, papers in English are strongly recommended (Spanish is also acceptable). Information on the format of the camera-ready copy will be forwarded with the acceptance letter. Each accepted paper must be presented in the symposium, and the presenter must be registered in the conference.


Special Issue of the Journal "Inteligencia Artificial"

The authors of the best papers written in English will be invited to submit extended versions of their works. These will be subjected to a second peer review and those selected will be published by the an Special Issue of the Journal "Inteligencia Artificial" (IberoAmerican Journal of Artificial Intelligence, ISSN: 1137-3601).
