19th Brazilian Symposium On Artificial Intelligence SBIA 2008
Salvador, Bahia, Brazil, October 26-30, 2008
Sponsored by the Brazilian Computing Society (SBC)
Due to the Easter Holidays, the deadline for SBRN2006 paper submission has been extended to March 31st, 2008.
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.
