Québec City, Québec, Canada


Deadline for workshop proposals: Dec. 21th 2005


Workshops will be held on June 6, 2006, one day prior to the AI'2006
conference, at the site of the conference. We invite researchers
interested in chairing one of these workshops to submit proposals for
possible workshops. The goal of the workshops is to provide an
informal forum for researchers to discuss important research questions
and challenges.  Controversial issues, open problems, and comparisons
of competing approaches are encouraged and preferred as workshop
topics. Representation of alternative viewpoints and panel-style
discussions are also particularly encouraged. Workshop topics are
those covered by the AI2006 conference.


Workshop organizers have several responsibilities including:

- Sollicitating presentations for the workshops and accepting or
rejecting presentations based on a submitted abstract.

- Coordinating workshop participation and content, which includes
arranging short informal presentations by experts, arranging for
expert commentators to sit on a discussion panel, formulating a set of
discussion topics, etc.

- Setting up a final program. 




Interested parties must submit a proposal for a workshop via email by
December 21, 2005. Proposals should include a title, description of
what the workshop is to address and accomplish, planned format (e.g.,
lectures, group discussions, panel discussion, combinations of the
above, etc.), and proposed speakers. Names of potential invitees
should be given whenever possible. Preference will be given to
workshops that reserve a significant portion of time for open
discussion or panel discussion, as opposed to a pure "mini-conference"


The proposal should state why the topic is of interest, why it should
be discussed, and who the targeted group of participants is. It should
also include a brief resume of the prospective workshop chair.


AI'2006 does not provide travel funding for workshop speakers.


Submissions should include the name, address, email address, phone and
fax numbers for all organizers. If there is more than one organizer,
please designate one organizer as the primary contact.


Luc Lamontagne and Mario Marchand,

AI2006 program co-chairs
