    Submissions of the following three types are invited:

    Papers presenting new original work. Submitted papers should not exceed a length of 8 pages. These papers will be reviewed on overall quality and relevance. A-Papers can be accepted for either oral or poster presentation. All accepted papers will be fully published in the proceedings.

    Papers that have been accepted after June 1st, 2006 for AI-related refereed conferences or journals can be resubmitted and will be accepted as compressed contributions. Authors are invited to submit the officially published version (without page restriction) together with a one or two-page abstract (Please put both files in a single zip file and upload the zip file.). B-Papers will be accepted for either oral or poster presentation. The abstract of the paper will be published in the proceedings. Every author may submit at most one B-paper of which they are the corresponding author, and only if they do not submit any A-paper as corresponding author. Note that a separate author registration is required for each B-type contribution.

    Proposals for demonstrations will be evaluated based on submitted demonstration summaries (in English) stating the following: the purpose of the system to be demonstrated, its user groups, the organisation or project for which it is developed, the developers, and the technology used. In addition, the system requirements and the duration (not exceeding 30 minutes) should be mentioned. Especially researchers from industry are encouraged to submit papers presenting their applications and experiences. The maximum size of demonstration summaries is 2 pages.
    These instructions apply to the camera-ready versions for the BNAIC proceedings.

    LaTeX users: use this package containing:

    • The bnaic.sty style file to be used with the article document class
    • The files authorinstr.tex and mybibfile.bib containing directions and examples
    In the end, it should look like this.

    MS Word users: use this file as an example/template. In the end, your document should look exactly like it.

    Papers and demonstration summaries should be submitted electronically. More details can be found here.
    Each submission should belong to one of the three types (A, B or C). You'll also need to provide an abstract of the paper in plain text. Proper receipt of submissions will be acknowledged by e-mail. The deadline for submissions is June 25th, 2007. Submission implies willingness of at least one author to register for BNAIC and present the paper. For each paper, a separate author registration is required. Authors keep the copyright of their submissions. The BNAIC Proceedings are published under ISSN series number 1568-7805.
