Hosted by the Florida Artificial Intelligence Research Society in
cooperation with AAAI

The 24th International Florida Artificial Intelligence Research Society
Conference (FLAIRS-24) will be held May 18-20, 2011 at The Colony Hotel in
Palm Beach, Florida, USA. FLAIRS-24 continues a tradition of presenting and
discussing state of the art artificial intelligence research in a convivial
atmosphere within a beautiful setting. Events will include invited speakers,
special tracks, discussion panels, and presentations of papers, posters, and
awards. FLAIRS features some of the world’s leading researchers but
submissions from students are also highly encouraged, with FLAIRS boasting a
strong tradition of student papers.

The Atlantic coastal city of Palm Beach, lying one hour north of Miami, is
one of Florida's most beautiful resorts. The Colony Hotel, the heart of the
conference, is located only half a block from beautiful beaches and the
internationally renowned Worth Avenue shopping! Palm Beach offers plenty of
exquisite restaurants with delicious cuisine. Museums, gardens and cultural
events are all at your fingertips. Just across the inter-coastal waterway,
the City of West Palm Beach, with its sunny palm-lined streets, scenic
waterfront views, quaint shopping districts, and historic neighborhoods,
offers award winning Clematis by Night free fountainside concert series,
where visitors and locals mingle among arts and crafts vendors while
enjoying live entertainment. The Palm Beach area also offers family fun,
with the Palm Beach Zoo at Dreher Park, the South Florida Science Museum, or
nearby world-class beaches and fishing.

*Special Tracks*

Submission of special tracks for FLAIRS-24 is now invited.

Special tracks, held in parallel with the general conference, are an
integral part of FLAIRS. Special tracks provide researchers in focused areas
the opportunity to meet and present their work, and offer a forum for
interaction among the broader community of artificial intelligence
researchers. Special track papers are required to meet the same standards
and are published in the conference proceedings.

Topics of interest are in all areas related to artificial intelligence. For
example, last year's special track submissions included

   - Artificial Intelligence Education
   - AI, Cognitive Semantics and Computational Linguistics: New perspectives
   - Uncertain Reasoning
   - Applied Natural Language Processing
   - Games & Entertainment
   - Spatio-Temporal Reasoning

   - AI Planning and Scheduling
   - Cognition and AI: Capturing Cognitive Plausibility and Informing
   Psychological Processes
   - AI and Second Language Learning
   - Learning in Intelligent Systems
   - Intelligent Tutoring Systems

We encourage proposals for *all* topics, even those that have run
previously. Please contact the Special Tracks Coordinator (Chutima Boonthum:
*chutima.boonthum at hamptonu.edu*) or the program chair (Phil McCarthy:
pmmccrth at memphis.edu) if you have questions about proposing a particular
topic. We are also particularly interested in fresh tracks in areas such as
Machine Learning or AI in English as a Second Language, but all proposals
for tracks are very much encouraged.

Proposals must be submitted to the EasyChair conference system, which can be
accessed through the main conference web site
Chairs of special tracks will work closely with the Special Tracks
coordinator, and are expected to respond promptly and communicate regularly
in order to maximize the potential impact of the track. Proposals must be
made using the special track template (see
Please include the following information in all proposals:

1.      Title of the special track.

2.      Anticipated numbers of submissions and accepted papers. Special
tracks that fail to attract sufficient papers will be merged into the
general conference.

3.      Names and contact information for the special track chair(s) and
those who have agreed to serve on the special track's program committee.

4.      Promotional plans and materials, including a draft call for papers,
specific plans for publicizing the special track, and the names of any
speakers you are considering inviting. (FLAIRS cannot guarantee any form of
financial support for special track invited speakers at this stage.)
