dates as *strict* dates.
Here follows the new CFP. We apologize for multiple copies.

AI*IA 2011
XIIth Conference of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence
“Artificial Intelligence Around Man and Beyond”

Palermo, Sept. 15-17 2011
Call For Papers

AI*IA 2011 is the twelfth International Conference on Advances in
Artificial Intelligence held bi-annually by the Italian Association
for Artificial Intelligence (AI*IA).

The conference covers broadly the many aspects of theoretical and
applied Artificial Intelligence. Both regular papers and posters can
be submitted to AI*IA 2011. A series of workshops dedicated to
specific topics will complement the main conference program.

This year the main focus will be on the theme "Artificial Intelligence
Around Man and Beyond". Nowadays, AI-enabled technologies support a
sort of "distributed intelligent environment”. Men in this environment
are so better capable to manipulate information and perform tasks
involving a huge cognitive effort more efficiently.

Moreover, such technologies shift the theoretical speculation towards
philosophical themes that are "beyond the humans" like design of
metacognitive artificial agents and machine consciousness. The debate
is no more about merely intelligent or cognitive machines but it
rather focuses on their ability of being conscious and/or thinking
about their cognition.
Papers are invited on original, and unpublished research on all
aspects of artificial intelligence, including, but not limited to:

AI and digital entertainment
AI applications
AI architectures
AI in Learning Environments
Cognitive modeling
Cognitive Robotics
Constraint Satisfaction
Experimentation of Combinatorial Algorithms
Human Computer Interaction
Information Agents
Information Retrieval and Extraction
Knowledge Acquisition
Knowledge Engineering
Knowledge Representation
Learning in adaptive systems
Machine Consciousness
Machine learning
Mathematical Foundations
Metacognition in Artificial Agents
Multiagent Systems, Distributed AI
Natural Language Processing
Philosophical Foundations
Planning and Scheduling
Semantic Web
Soft and Evolutionary Computing
Temporal Reasoning
Web and Data Mining

Papers will be published as a book in Springer LNAI series. Each paper
should be no more than 12 pages in the LNCS format. For detailed
instructions and materials, please refer to the Springer web site, under the section “Information for LNCS
