 Irish Conference on Machine Vision and Image Processing (IMVIP-97)

 AI IN "CRISIS" ?

Has the field been in `crisis'? --- some argue we've been in the
wilderness with no breakthroughs for decades except minor shifts
towards connectionism and neural networks, artificial life, data
collection/corpora, and hybrid systems. Others say the move towards
integration (e.g. Intelligent MultiMedia integrating
language/vision), PersonKommunikation, mobile and remote computing,
more and more engineering and a focus on the significance or otherwise
of the self, mind and consciousness is emphasizing the successes of
AI...

Ireland hosts AI conferences usually annually since 1988. This ninth
AI-97 conference will continue the tradition of emphasising
presentations of Irish and International original research in all
areas of Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science including
Computer Science, Psychology, Linguistics, Philosophy, Neuroscience
and related disciplines on the obvious problems of speech, NLP, and
vision processing, robotics, learning, reasoning, knowledge
representation and mobile/remote computing. Papers which address
whether or not the field has been in `crisis' and its
failures/successes are particularly welcome!

Ever since George Boolean Logic (Cork), James Joyce's advances on
streams-of-consciousness (see Dennett's Joycean machine), Claude
Shannon found Information Theory and John McCarthy made LISP and gave
the field its name (Dartmouth, US, 1956) we have been into Artificial
Intelligence.

is the development of techniques for a mobile autonomous surveillance
robot. Professor Crowley served as the technical coordinator of
project ESPRIT basic research project EP 7108, "Vision as Process"
from 1989 to 1995. The VAP Project developed active vision heads,
model architectures for real time continuously operating computer

CONFERENCE FORMAT:
Our intention is to have as much interaction as possible during the
conference and to stress panel sessions and discussion as much as
formal paper presentations. A plenary session will integrate attempts
at addressing views on whether or not there is a `crisis' in the field.

ATTENDANCE:
We hope to have an attendance between 100-150 people at the conference.


SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS:
Papers of not more than 8 A4 pages should be submitted by electronic
mail (ASCII plain text + preferably uuencoded compressed postscript)
to Paul Mc Kevitt at pmckcpk.auc.dk. If you cannot submit your paper
by E-mail please submit three copies to Paul Mc Kevitt by snail mail.

**** Submission Deadline: July 1, 1997
**** Notification Date: August 1, 1997
**** Camera ready Copy: August 14, 1997


PUBLICATION:
Conference notes/preprints will be published. If there is sufficient
interest we will publish a book on the conference.
