Paper submission

Prospective authors are invited to contribute high-quality papers to ASAI 2012. All papers will be subject to double-blind peer review and have to be submitted electronically through the conference website. An online system will be available soon to submit the articles. Delayed submissions, not adjusting to paper format and length, will most likely be rejected.
The submission of manuscripts can be in English (preferably) or Spanish, and must follow the format available at The page limit for a full paper is 12 pages. All contributions should be submitted in PDF format. Information on the format of the camera-ready copy will be forwarded with the acceptance letter. ASAI 2012 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 regular paper sessions presenting mature work (full papers) in theoretical research and applications. Each accepted paper must be presented in the symposium, and the presenter must be registered in the conference.

All the symposia at 41 JAIIO use SADIO's conference management system to handle submissions. To upload your contribution you first need to register and sign in. The following links provide detailed instructions about registration and submission, direct access to the user registration form, and direct access to the submission form.
