Call for Workshop Proposals

The AIIDE-2012 Program Committee invites proposals for the Workshop Program, to be held on October 8-9, 2012 at Stanford. AIIDE-2012 workshops will provide an informal setting where participants will have the opportunity to discuss specific selected focus topics in an atmosphere that fosters the active exchange of ideas.

Members of all segments of the AI in Digital Entertainment community as well as industry researchers are encouraged to submit workshop proposals for review. The workshop program is intended to complement the formal technical program of the main conference and to support more in-depth interactions.

Workshops can vary in length from half a day to a day. However, we expect most workshops to be one day long. The format of workshops will be determined by their organizers. Organizers are highly encouraged to propose alternative formats beyond paper/poster presentations, and should encourage the submission and presentation of position papers that discuss new research ideas. Workshop papers will be published as technical reports and will be archived in the AAAI digital library. Proposals for workshops should be about two (2) to three (3) pages in length. And include the following information:

  • A brief technical description of the workshop, specifying the workshop goals and the issues that will be its focus.
  • A preliminary workshop format and a proposed schedule for organizing the workshop, including desired length for the workshop. This should include a brief description of how the organizers intend to encourage an atmosphere appropriate for a workshop.
  • If available, a list of tentatively confirmed attendees.
  • Information concerning whether this this workshop is a continuation of a previous workshop
  • The names, postal addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of the proposed workshop organizing committee. This committee should consist of two to four people knowledgeable in the area.
  • The primary contact for the organizing committee.

Workshop chairs must submit their proposals via email to the workshops chair Santiago Ontanon by April 2.
