Salvador está com excelentes eventos em 2008.
Call for Papers SBIA 2008

Salvador, Bahia, Brazil, October 26-30, 2008

Sponsored by the Brazilian Computing Society (SBC)


As has occurred since 2002, the 19th Brazilian Symposium on Artificial
Intelligence (SBIA) and the 10th Brazilian Symposium on Artificial
Neural Networks (SBRN) will be collocated, this time also with the
Brazilian Symposium on Intelligent Robotics (JRI), in Salvador, Bahia,
Brazil, October 26-30, 2008.

SBIA is the leading conference in Brazil for presentation of research
and applications in Artificial Intelligence. Since 1995, SBIA has
become an international conference, with papers written in English,
international program committee and keynote speakers, and proceedings
published by Springer-Verlag in the LNAI Series. Since 1996, SBIA is a
biennial event.

Besides the rich scientific program, with several talks and tutorials
given by distinguished invited speakers and technical papers, there
are also the cultural highlights of Salvador: one of the most
beautiful cities in Brazil, with very nice beaches and islands, rich
culture and great food! Therefore, we invite the AI, ANN and Robotics
communities to join us and make this event a very exciting one. Hope
to see you there!

By submitting papers to SBIA 2008, the authors agree that in case of
acceptance at least one author registers to the conference and
presents the paper. Simultaneous submission of papers to other
conferences is allowed, provided that this fact is clearly indicated
by the authors in the submission process. Double blind reviewing:
reviewing for papers will be blind to the identities of the authors
and their institutions. Submissions violating the guidelines will be
*excluded* from the reviewing process.


Paper registration and submissions to SBIA 2008 will be handled using
the JEMS system, which will be open for registration and submission
from February 18, 2008. The address is:

Submission is a three-step process. In a first step authors are
required to register as new authors with JEMS (note that only 1
registration is needed if you submit more than 1 paper). After
registration as author the login data will be sent to the specified
email address. This data can be used to access the system.

In a second step authors have to register their paper (click the
submit paper button in JEMS). The authors are asked in this step to
specify the name of the authors, the paper title, its topics and the
paper category (regular, student: the first author is a student or
not). The system will then assign a tracking ID to each submission,
which is sent to the contact author. The deadline for paper
registration is March 17, 23:55 BRST.

The third step consists on uploading the paper. This step can be done
jointly with the registering step. For those authors who prefer to
upload their papers after registering, the tracking ID must be used.
The deadline for paper uploading is March 19, 23:55 BRST.

We will *only* accept files in pdf format. Please do not try to upload
other formats, they will be rejected by the system. Note also that we
only accept electronic submissions through JEMS. Please do not send
papers directly to the PC-chairs. Submissions sent by regular courrier
or by email will *not* be considered. Please include keywords in your
article (after the abstract) when submitting your paper, in order to
facilitate the revision process, especially if you have selected
"Other" as a topic during the submission of your abstract). Please
assign at least one topic to your paper.
