Apologies for Multiple Copies Due to Cross Posting

Dear colleague,

You are cordially invited to submit your papers to
MIWAI'10, The 4th Mahasarakham International
Workshop on AI 2010, to be held at Mahasarakham
University, Mahasrakham, Thailand on December 9-10,
2010 (http://khamreang.msu.ac.th/miwai10/).

The due date for paper submission is on October 15, 2010.

As usual, we will maintain the quality of MIWAI by
assigning (at least) two high profile reviewers in related
area to each paper. We believe the authors will learn a lot
from the comments during the review process and during
the presentation.

Furthermore, we are working on allocating budget
(scholarships) to support students to come to MIWAI'10
both domestically and internationally. Also, we have
introduced more awards to students papers as well as
working on prizes for them.

Please find MIWAI'10's Call for Papers below. Should you
have any question, kindly direct any question to
chattrakul.s at msu.ac.th or richard.booth at uni.lu.

We are looking forward to your submission and participation
in MIWAI'10.

Best regards,

Mana Setwong and Wijittra Noisanguan

Submission requirements
Submissions of the following three categories are invited:

Papers presenting new original work. Submitted papers
should not exceed a length of 12 pages in the IEEE format
style (templates here:
Regular papers will be reviewed on overall quality and
relevance. Reviewing of category A papers will be (at least)
double-blind. In order to make blind reviewing possible, the
authors should follow that:

•The authors' names and institutions should not appear in
   the paper.
•Unpublished work of the authors should not be cited.
•Using "we" or "us" in reviews of literature should be
   avoided, e.g., "In [1] we have proposed..." should be changed
   to "In [1] the authors have proposed...".

The program committee will evaluate Category A papers as
either “rejected” or “accepted as long paper” or “accepted
as short paper”. All accepted category A papers (long and
short) will be fully published in the proceedings.

Papers that have been accepted after June 1 2009 for
AI-related refereed conferences or journals can be
resubmitted and will be accepted as “compressed
contributions”. Authors are invited to submit the published
version (without page or format restriction) together with a
1 or 2-page abstract prepared in the IEEE format style
(templates here: .tex, .doc). Note the above double-blind
instructions apply only to category A papers, not to category
B. The abstract of the paper will be published in the proceedings.
Every author may submit at most one B-paper of which they are
the corresponding author, and only if they do not submit any
A-paper as corresponding author.

Proposals for demonstrations will be evaluated based on
submitted demonstration summaries stating the following:
the purpose of the system to be demonstrated, its user groups,
the organization or project for which it is developed, the
developers, and the technology used. In addition, the system
requirements and the duration of the demo (not exceeding 30
minutes) should be mentioned. Especially master students are
encouraged to submit papers presenting their applications and
experiences. The maximum size of demonstration summaries is
2 pages (in English). Reviewing of category C papers will be
double-blind (see above under “category A” papers for details).

The workshop proceedings will be published with ISBN number.

At least one author of each accepted paper (in each submission
category) is required to attend the workshop.

Language Requirements
As MIWAI is an international workshop, its official language
is English. This means all submitting authors must submit an
English language version of their paper, as well as present
their paper in English if accepted for the workshop. To all our
friends in the Thai AI community, this is the perfect opportunity
to practice your English writing skills and, in so doing, make the
wider international AI community aware of the exciting work
you are doing! Do not be afraid of the English barrier. We will
do our best to help you get through it.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) research has broad applications in
real world problems. Examples include control, planning and
scheduling, pattern recognition, knowledge mining, software
applications and strategy games. The ever-evolving needs in
business both on a local and on a global scale demand better
technologies for solving more and more complex problems.
Such needs can be found in all industrial sectors and in any
part of the world.

This workshop aims to be a meeting place where excellence in
AI research meets the needs for solving dynamic and complex
problems in the real world. The academic researchers,
developers, and industrial practitioners will have extensive
opportunities to present their original work, technological
advances and practical problems. Participants can learn from
each other and exchange their experiences in order to fine tune
their activities in order to help each other better.

The main purposes of the MIWAI series of workshops are as

•to provide a meeting place for AI researchers and practitioners
in Thailand and beyond.

•to inform Thai students about cutting-edge AI research via the
presence of outstanding international invited speakers.

•to raise the standards of practice of AI research in the whole of
Thailand by providing Thai researchers and students with
feedback from an internationally-renowned program committee.
