The 25th annual workshop of the Swedish Artificial Intelligence
Society (SAIS) will take place in Linköping, Sweden on May 27-28,
2009.  The SAIS workshop provides an ideal forum for contacts among AI
researchers and practitioners in Sweden and neighboring countries, as
well as for establishing links with related research disciplines and
industry.  Visit http://www.sais.se/sais2009 for more information.

The purpose of the SAIS workshop is:
* To give PhD students an opportunity to present their research to a
  friendly and knowledgeable audience and receive valuable feedback.
* To provide a forum for established researchers and practitioners to
  present past and current research contributing to the state of the
  art of AI research and applications.
* To provide an informal social event where AI researchers and
  practitioners can meet.

In addition to the regular presentations there will be invited talks
and presentations by the winners of the SAIS Master's Thesis Award and
the SAIS Best AI Paper Award.

We invite two types of contributions to the SAIS workshop:
* Original research papers
* Position papers from research groups or companies

The main purpose of position papers is to communicate research
activities of individuals and groups in Sweden and neighboring
countries.  Such papers should describe current research/application
challenges or current research/application endeavors.

All papers will be carefully reviewed by the program committee.
Accepted papers will be published in the electronic workshop
proceedings.  Copyright stays with the authors and authors of
previously unpublished papers accepted to the SAIS workshop are
encouraged to submit these to other workshops or conferences.
