[Comp-neuro] Call for Contributed NEUROSCIENCE Papers to the Artificial General Intelligence conference (AGI-11)

Dear friends and colleagues,


 I am organizing a *Special Track on NEUROSCIENCE and AI* at the Artificial
General Intelligence conference (AGI-10) that will take place *3-6 August
2011 in Mountain View, California*, USA.

http://agi-conf.org/2011/

Previous AGI conferences in the series have clearly demonstrated the many
areas of overlap between neuroscience and AI, as well as the strong need for
more interaction and collaboration between the two fields of research.


 *CALL FOR NEUROSCIENCE PAPERS*

We would like to specifically solicit paper submission from neuroscientists
(and researchers in neuroscience related fields) that cover:

   -

   NEUROSCIENCE results of ideas with implications for ARTIFICIAL GENERAL
   INTELLIGENCE
   -

   Discussions of the relation between NEUROSCIENCE and ARTIFICIAL GENERAL
   INTELLIGENCE

 Submission deadline is 15 FEBRUARY 2011.

We welcome solid theoretical papers, as well as those presenting relevant
experimental results. We also welcome speculative ideas so long as they are
properly grounded in science.


 The *generic Call for Papers* below describes the conference and the paper
submission process, which is identical for Neuroscience papers.


 I hope to see you at AGI-11 in August!


 Best regards,

Dr. Randal A. Koene, member Organizing Committee AGI-11



 *Call for Papers*

The original goal of the AI field was the construction of “thinking
machines”, that is, computer systems with human-like general intelligence.
For the last few decades, however, the majority of AI researchers have
focused on what can be called “narrow AI” – systems with intelligence
limited to specific, highly constrained tasks. In recent years more and more
researchers have recognized the necessity – and feasibility – of returning
to the original goals of the field. Increasingly, there is a call for
confronting the more difficult issues of human-level intelligence, and more
broadly “artificial general intelligence” (AGI).

Continuing the mission of the first three highly successful Conferences on
Artificial General Intelligence, AGI-11 will gather an international group
of leading academic and industry researchers involved in serious scientific
and engineering work aimed directly at the goal of AGI. This is the only
major conference series devoted wholly and specifically to the creation of
AI systems possessing general intelligence at the human level and beyond.
 AGI-11 will be hosted by Google in Mountain View, California.

Submit papers or proposals, for workshops, tutorials, or demos, electronically
to EasyChair <http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=agi11> (you may
need to Create an EasyChair Account first). Whether an accepted paper
(either full-length or short position statement) will be presented as a talk
or as a poster will be determined by the Program Committee, in part based on
paper quality as assessed by the anonymous reviewers, and in part according
to the extent the paper addresses a topic of core interest to the AGI
community. All accepted papers are required to have at least one registered
author per paper. Multiple papers require multiple registrations. AGI-11
will accept two types of submissions: full-length papers (10 pages) and
short position statements (3 pages).

A good sense of the overall nature of the conference may be found via
perusing AGI-10 <http://agi-conf.org/2010/>, AGI-09<http://agi-conf.org/2009/>,
and AGI-08 <http://agi-conf.org/2008/>.
 *Author Instructions*

Submissions should follow the Spring Lecture Notes in Artificial
Intelligence author instructions
here<http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0>
.
 *Important Dates*

February 15, 2011 – Final Submissions
 *AGI-11 Submissions Policy*

Whether an accepted paper (of either length) will be presented as a talk or
as a poster will be determined by the Program Committee, in part based on
paper quality as assessed by the anonymous reviewers, and in part according
to the extent the paper addresses a topic of core interest to the AGI
community.

The acceptance of a paper is based on the assumption that one of the authors
will attend the conference to present the paper. Any questions can be
directed to one of the conference chairs<http://agi-conf.org/2011/committees/>
.
 *AGI-11 Copyright Policy*

Springer-Verlag will hold the copyright to the published paper. Authors
should archive their paper on their own web site as well, with the following
text included: “The original publication is available at
www.springerlink.com”. The Springer Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence
copyright form is available
here<http://www.springer.com/cda/content/document/cda_downloaddocument/copyrightlnai.pdf?SGWID=0-0-45-978537-p173621840>
