Paper and poster submissions are invited for a Two-day Symposium on

     AI-Inspired Biology (AIIB)
     (Not Biologically Inspired AI -- BIAI!)
     31st March--1st April 2010

     Sponsored by EUCogII (http://www.eucognition.org/)

to be held at the AISB 2010 Convention along with 13 other symposia
on 29th March - 1st April 2010 at De Montfort University, Leicester,

The AIIB symposium will mainly be concerned with:

     Past, ongoing and especially future influences
     FROM AI/robotics TO the study of natural cognition.
     This can include using relevance to natural cognition
     as a test for generality and power of theories of artificial


     Prof Kim Bard, Portsmouth University
     Prof Margaret Boden, Sussex University
         (will lead the closing discussion on "The way forward")
