AI Space Odyssey, Special Issue of IEEE Intelligent Systems

Submissions due for review: 19 February 2010
Publication date: September/October 2010


IEEE Intelligent Systems seeks original papers describing research on AI in Space. This topic has been the focus of earlier special issues, but this call is interested in a glimpse of the future from our standpoint in 2010, and hence the theme AI Space Odyssey.

In anticipation of long-duration space exploration missions to the Moon and Mars, likely by many nations, we are looking for papers describing how AI has made missions possible and will help make missions a success. Whereas in the 1980s and 1990s, researchers saw AI as a panacea for intelligent autonomous systems, the AI technology used today in space applications is often regarded differently. The editors of this special issue solicit papers that describe new and novel use of AI technology for space applications.

Papers may cover a variety of topics, listed here in no particular order:

* semantics, ontologies, and knowledge representation;
* pattern recognition and scientific discovery;
* Intelligent System-Health Management (ISHM);
* teleoperation and telerobotics;
* planning, scheduling, constraint satisfaction;
* adjustable autonomy;
* agent-based and multiagent systems;
* machine learning;
* procedure-execution monitoring and aiding;
* natural language processing and dialogue systems;
* decision support; and
* history of AI applications in astronautics and space exploration.

In addition, the special issue will consider original papers on innovative, knowledge-based approaches to complex implementation challenges such as

* AI-driven simulations, virtual reality, virtual worlds and games for engineering, operations, management, training, and so on;
* software engineering, development, and verification and validation approaches for high-reliability autonomy;
* innovative approaches to security issues in autonomous software systems;
* software life-cycle issues with respect to very long-duration (10+ year) missions;
* decision and workflow support systems for planetary exploration and extra-vehicular activities;
* AI-driven robotics and approaches for human-robot teamwork;
* Smart sensor systems for situational awareness; and
* ubiquitous computing environments.

Submission Guidelines

Papers should situate the work within the field of AI, cite related work, and indicate the innovative aspects of the work and its direct contribution to the special challenges of space missions. We will not accept any paper that, at the time of submission, is under review for or has already been published or accepted for publication in a journal or another conference. All papers will undergo peer and editorial review. Submissions should present original reports of substantive new work and should be 3,500 to 7,500 words (counting a standard figure or table as 200 words) and should follow the magazines style and presentation guidelines (see www.computer.org/intelligent/author.htm).

References should be limited to 10 citations. To submit a manuscript, access the IEEE Computer Society Web-based system, Manuscript Central, at: https://mc.manuscriptcentral/cs-ieee.
