                              AISC 2018 Call for Papers 

                           13th International Conference on 
                   Artificial Intelligence and Symbolic Computation 
                         Suzhou, China, September 16-19, 2018



AISC is a forum for the exchange of ideas and the presentation of new tools 
and solutions at the intersection of Artificial Intelligence and Symbolic 
Computation. It aims to foster contacts and collaborations among researchers 
from different fields related to AI and Symbolic Computation. The conference 
is concerned with all aspects of research, including theory, implementations, 
and applications. 

AISC 2018 takes a broad view of AI that includes non-traditional areas such 
as machine/deep learning and their interactions with logic and symbolic 
reasoning. It will also have a special track on Collective Intelligence. 

Conferences in this series are usually held every two years. The previous 
five took place in Sevilla (Spain), Paris (France), Birmingham (United 
Kingdom), Beijing (China), and Linz (Austria). AISC 2018 will take place in 
Suzhou, China.


Specific topics for AISC 2018 include, but are not limited to:

* Cognitive modelling and symbolic AI
* Machine learning and computational intelligence
* Data modelling and analysis
* Knowledge representation and symbolic computing
* Knowledge acquisition, search, verification, and interoperation
* Automated reasoning and knowledge discovery
* Causal inferences, uncertainty reasoning, and decision support
* Cross-disciplinary knowledge management
* Mechanization of mathematics
* Mechanized program verification and debugging
* Combination of logics and computations
* Integration of logical reasoning and computer algebra
* Symbolic computations for expert systems and machine learning
* Computer vision and computer-aided geometric design
* Computer algebra systems and automated theorem provers
* Computer-based mathematics teaching and didactics
* Programming languages and systems for symbolic computation
* Emerging fields of computational AI 

Topics for the special track on Collective Intelligence include, but are not 
limited to:

* Human computation and collective intelligence
* Game theory and crowdsourcing computation
* Crowdsourcing software engineering
* Crowdsourcing publishing, reviewing, and competition systems


Original research papers in English, including experimental work and work in 
progress are welcome. The following types of submissions are invited.

* Regular papers: maximum 15 pages.

* Short papers: maximum 5 pages that address the following aspects explicitly.
- Problem: what is the problem/question/objective?
- Motivation: why are we working on the problem and what is its importance?
- State of the art: what has been done already on the problem?
- Contribution: what is the main original contribution?
- Main idea: what is the main idea underlying the contribution?

Additional information:

* The submissions should indicate whether they are submitted as short or 
  regular papers as part of their titles (see the AISC webpage for 
  instructions). Aside from this they should follow the standard 
  Springer LNCS Proceedings format.
* Electronic submission as PDF should be via EasyChair at
* Accepted papers must be presented at the conference.
* If you have any problems with the submission of your paper, or questions 
  concerning AISC 2018 or EasyChair, please contact aisc2018 at easychair.org.


The proceedings of AISC 2018 will be published by Springer in its LNAI series 
and will be available by the time of the conference. 

As for previous editions of AISC, authors of selected conference papers may 
be invited to submit extended versions for review and publication in the 
special issue of a journal.
