Hosted by the Florida Artificial Intelligence Research Society in cooperation
with AAAI

The 24th International Florida Artificial Intelligence Research Society
Conference (FLAIRS-24) will be held May 18-20, 2011 at The Colony Hotel
in Palm Beach, Florida, USA. FLAIRS-24 continues a tradition of presenting
and discussing state of the art artificial intelligence research in a convivial
atmosphere within a beautiful setting. Events will include invited speakers,
special tracks, discussion panels, and presentations of papers, posters, and
awards. FLAIRS features some of the world's leading researchers but
submissions from students are also highly encouraged, with FLAIRS
boasting a strong tradition of student papers. The Atlantic coastal city of
Palm Beach, lying one hour north of Miami, is one of Florida's most beautiful
resorts. The Colony Hotel, the heart of the conference, is located only half a
block from beautiful beaches and the internationally renowned Worth
Avenue shopping! Palm Beach offers plenty of exquisite restaurants with
delicious cuisine. Museums, gardens and cultural events are all at your
fingertips. Just across the inter-coastal waterway, the City of West Palm
Beach, with its sunny palm-lined streets, scenic waterfront views, quaint
shopping districts, and historic neighborhoods, offers award winning
Clematis by Night free fountainside concert series, where visitors and locals
mingle among arts and crafts vendors while enjoying live entertainment. The
Palm Beach area also offers family fun, with the Palm Beach Zoo at Dreher
Park, the South Florida Science Museum, or nearby world-class beaches
and fishing.

Call for Papers

Special Tracks
Submission of special tracks for FLAIRS-24 is now invited.
Special tracks, held in parallel with the general conference, are an integral
part of FLAIRS. Special tracks provide researchers in focused areas the
opportunity to meet and present their work, and offer a forum for interaction
among the broader community of artificial intelligence researchers. Special
track papers are required to meet the same standards and are published in
the conference proceedings.
Topics of interest are in all areas related to artificial intelligence. For
example, last year's special track submissions included

-Artificial Intelligence Education
-AI, Cognitive Semantics and Computational Linguistics: New perspectives
-Uncertain Reasoning
-Applied Natural Language Processing
-Games & Entertainment
-Spatio-Temporal Reasoning
-AI Planning and Scheduling
-Cognition and AI: Capturing Cognitive Plausibility and Informing
Psychological Processes
-AI and Second Language Learning
-Learning in Intelligent Systems
-Intelligent Tutoring Systems

We encourage proposals for all topics, even those that have run previously.
Please contact the Special Tracks Coordinator (Chutima Boonthum:
chutima.boonthumhamptonu.edu) or the program chair (Phil McCarthy:
pmmccrthmemphis.edu) if you have questions about proposing a
particular topic. We are also particularly interested in fresh tracks in areas
such as Machine Learning or AI in English as a Second Language, but all
proposals for tracks are very much encouraged.

Proposals must be submitted to the EasyChair conference system, which
can be accessed through the main conference web site
(http://www.FLAIRS-24.info). Chairs of special tracks will work closely with
the Special Tracks coordinator, and are expected to respond promptly and
communicate regularly in order to maximize the potential impact of the track.
Proposals must be made using the special track template (see
http://www.FLAIRS-24.info). Please include the following information in all

1.Title of the special track.
2.Anticipated numbers of submissions and accepted papers. Special tracks
that fail to attract sufficient papers will be merged into the general
3.Names and contact information for the special track chair(s) and those
who have agreed to serve on the special track's program committee.
4.Promotional plans and materials, including a draft call for papers, specific
plans for publicizing the special track, and the names of any speakers you
are considering inviting. (FLAIRS cannot guarantee any form of financial
support for special track invited speakers at this stage.)
