                    ---   50 Years AI  ---
                     Symposium at KI 2006
	           Saturday, June 17th, 2006

This year, the Artificial Intelligence community celebrates the golden
anniversary of the 1956 Dartmouth Conference that marks the beginning
of AI as a research field. This symposium will take stock of the
promises and achievements of AI and looks ahead to the next 50 years.


       "Father of AI" and one of the organizers of the 1956 Dartmouth 
PAT HAYES (Pensacola), 
        AI pioneer in the area of"commonsense reasoning"
WOLFGANG BIBEL (Darmstadt), 
        AI pioneer in the area of automated deduction
JOERG SIEKMANN (Saarbruecken, DFKI), 
        AI pioneer in theorem proving
DON NORMAN (Northwestern U. & Nielson Norman group), 
    	founder of "Cognitive Science" and author of many books 
	including "Design of Everyday Things"
SEBASTIAN THRUN (Stanford) and his vehicle "STANLEY", 
       winners of the 2005 Grand Challenge for autonomous vehicles.
	AI pioneer in natural language interaction, winner of many 
	awards, including the innovation prize 2002 of the President 
	of the Federal Republic of Germany
HIROSHI ISHIGURO (Osaka) and his android "REPLIEE Q2"

Upon popular request, and due to the co-occurrence of many deadlines
we have decided to extend the submission deadline for KI-2006:

Note also the double submission policy with ECAI: ECAI papers can also
be submitted to KI 2006 (doubly accepted papers must be retracted from
one conference).


     29th Annual German Conference on Artificial Intelligence
             14 - 19 June 2006, Bremen, Germany

          ----- Deadline Extension & Call for Papers -----

The conference invites original research papers in all areas of
Artificial Intelligence. Besides papers on the foundations of AI we
also welcome reports on innovative applications.  The conference will
be co-located with: RoboCup 2006 - http://www.robocup2006.org ACTUATOR
2006 - http://www.actuator.de

TOPICS: Possible areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
Autonomous Robots and Planning
Cognitive Architectures and Modeling
Formal Methods and Semantic Web
Knowledge Representation and Ontologies
Temporal and Spatial Reasoning
Vision and Image Understanding
Multimodal Processing and Multimedia
Multi Agent Systems and Machine Learning
Natural Language and Speech Processing
Reasoning under Uncertainty and Soft Computing
Knowledge Discovery and Management

March 31, 2006: 	Submission of electronic abstracts and papers
April 30, 2006: 	Notification for conference papers 
May 30, 2006: 	        "Camera-ready" copies for conference papers


Conference submission is electronic, in PDF or postscript
format. Submitted papers must not exceed 15 pages and should conform
to Springer LNCS style (see details for paper submission on the
conference web page). Papers must be written in English. The
conference proceedings will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes
in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) Series after the conference. KI 2006
and ECAI 2006 allow double submission; in case of double acceptance
one submission must be withdrawn by the author(s). At least one author
of each accepted paper must register for the conference and present
the contribution.
