Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers by uploading them
to the evaluation web site at: Submissions must be
uploaded by March 12, 2012 and they must be in either MS doc or pdf
formats (about 7 pages including all figures, tables, and references -
single space, font size of 10 to 12). All reasonable typesetting formats
are acceptable (later, the authors of accepted papers will be asked to
follow a particular typesetting format to prepare their final papers for
publication.) Papers must not have been previously published or
currently submitted for publication elsewhere. The first page of the
paper should include: title of the paper, name, affiliation, postal
address, and email address for each author. The first page should also
identify the name of the Contact Author and a maximum of 5 topical
keywords that would best represent the content of the paper. The name of
the conference (ie, ICAI) that the paper is being submitted for
consideration must be stated on the first page of the paper as well as a
100 to 150-word abstract. The length of the final Camera-Ready papers
(if accepted) will be limited to 7 (two-column IEEE style) pages.

Each paper will be peer-reviewed by two experts in the field for
originality, significance, clarity, impact, and soundness. In cases of
contradictory recommendations, a member of the conference program
committee will be charged to make the final decision (accept/reject);
often, this would involve seeking help from additional referees by using
a double-blinded review process. In addition, all papers whose authors
include a member of the conference program committee will be evaluated
using the double-blinded review process. (Essay/philosophical papers
will not be refereed but may be considered for discussion/panels).

Authors whose papers are accepted will be instructed to upload their papers
to a particular web site for publication - the uploaded papers to the
publication web site will only be checked for correct typesetting. At this
point, authors will be required to attest to the originality of their work
(ie, declaring that no part of the work is plagiarized and the paper does not
suffer from any acts of plagiarism.)

Proceedings of ICAI will be published in printed conference books (ISBN)
and will also be made available online. The proceedings will be indexed
in science citation databases that track citation frequency/data for
each published paper (science citation databases such as: Inspec / IET /
The Institute for Engineering & Technology; The French National Center
for Scientific Research, CNRS, INIST databases, PASCAL (covers the core
scientific literature in Science; about 90% of inclusions are journals;
only about 9% are proceedings; worldcomp tracks are selected to be among
the 9% - accessable from INIST, Datastar, Dialog, EBSCO, OVID,
Questel.Orbit, Qwam, and STN International); and others. Though, there
is no guarantee that the proceedings will also be included in EI
Compendex/Elsevier indexings, in the past, the track that ICAI belonged
to was included in these databases. Therefore, we will also be sending
the proceedings for indexing procedures to EI Compendex/Elsevier. The
printed proceedings/books will be available for distribution on site at
the conference.

In addition to the publication of the proceedings, selected authors will
be invited to submit extended versions of their papers for publication
in a number of research books contracted with various publishers. These
books will be composed after the conference. Also, many chairs of tracks
will be forming journal special issues to be published after the


Poster papers can be 2 pages long. Authors are to follow the same
instructions that appear above (see, SUBMISSION OF REGULAR PAPERS)
except for the submission is limited to 2 pages. On the first page, the
author should state that "This paper is being submitted as a
poster". Poster papers (if accepted) will be published if and only the
author of the accepted paper wishes to do so.


The ICAI conference is being held jointly (same location and dates) with a
number of other research conferences (WORLDCOMP). WORLDCOMP is the
largest annual gathering of researchers in computer science, computer
engineering and applied computing. We anticipate to have 2,100 or more
attendees from over 80 countries. WORLDCOMP 2012 will be composed of
research presentations, keynote lectures, invited presentations, tutorials,
panel discussions, and poster presentations. In recent past, keynote/
tutorial/panel speakers have included: Prof. David A. Patterson (pioneer,
architecture, U. of California, Berkeley), Dr. K. Eric Drexler (known as
Father of Nanotechnology), Prof. John H. Holland (known as Father of
Genetic Algorithms; U. of Michigan), Prof. Ian Foster (known as Father of
Grid Computing; U. of Chicago & ANL), Prof. Ruzena Bajcsy (pioneer, VR, U.
of California, Berkeley), Prof. Barry Vercoe (Founding member of MIT
Media Lab, MIT), Dr. Jim Gettys (known as X-man, developer of X Window
System, xhost; OLPC), Prof. John Koza (known as Father of Genetic
Programming, Stanford U.), Prof. Brian D. Athey (NIH Program Director,
U. of Michigan), Prof. Viktor K. Prasanna (pioneer, U. of Southern
California), Dr. Jose L. Munoz (NSF Program Director and Consultant),
Prof. Jun Liu (pioneer, Broad Institute of MIT & Harvard U.),
Prof. Lotfi A. Zadeh (Father of Fuzzy Logic), Dr. Firouz Naderi (Head,
NASA Mars Exploration Program/2000-2005 and Associate Director, Project
Formulation & Strategy, Jet Propulsion Lab, CalTech/NASA; Director,
NASA's JPL Solar System Exploration), Prof. David Lorge Parnas (Fellow
of IEEE, ACM, RSC, CAE, GI; Dr.h.c.: ETH Zurich, Prof. Emeritus,
McMaster U. and U. of Limerick), Prof. Eugene H. Spafford (Executive
Director, CERIAS and Professor, Purdue University), Dr. Sandeep
Chatterjee (Vice President & Chief Technology Officer, SourceTrace
Systems, Inc.), and many other distinguished speakers. To get a feeling
about the conferences' atmosphere, see the 2011 delegates photos
available at:

An important mission of WORLDCOMP is "Providing a unique platform for a
diverse community of constituents composed of scholars, researchers,
developers, educators, and practitioners. The Congress makes concerted
effort to reach out to participants affiliated with diverse entities
(such as: universities, institutions, corporations, government agencies,
and research centers/labs) from all over the world. The congress also
attempts to connect participants from institutions that have teaching as
their main mission with those who are affiliated with institutions that
have research as their main mission. The congress uses a quota system to
achieve its institution and geography diversity objectives."

One main goal of the congress is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated
research conferences, workshops, and symposiums into a coordinated
research meeting held in a common place at a common time. This model
facilitates communication among researchers in different fields of
computer science, computer engineering, and applied computing. The
Congress also encourages multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary
research initiatives; ie, facilitating increased opportunities for
cross-fertilization across sub-disciplines. 56223
