View the list of BISFAI-01 accepted papers.

The seventh biennial Bar-Ilan International Symposium on the Foundations of Artificial Intelligence, will be held on June 25-27, 2001 in Ramat Gan, Israel. The meeting will honor the research and accomplishments of Prof. Yaacov Choueka and will place special emphasis on natural language processing and computational linguistics. We solicit papers on substantial research in all areas of Artificial Intelligence, including, but not limited to, the following:

foundations natural language processing searching
knowledge representation computational linguistics planning
automated reasoning information retrieval knowledge-based systems
temporal reasoning robotics machine learning
probabilistic reasoning intelligent agents data mining

Submission Guidelines: Extended abstracts should be 6-12 pages in length, including references and figures.  Submissions should be made electronically, as attachments in Postscript or PDF format. The official proceedings will be web-based and made available at the BISFAI site.
System Demonstrations: We also solicit proposals for demonstrations of innovative applications of artificial intelligence, of length 1-2 pages.
Special Issue: Selected papers will be reviewed for journal publication in Annals of Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence.
Multiple Submissions: Papers may be submitted to BISFAI even if submitted to other conferences or journals, because the BISFAI website is not archival. Of course, if a paper is accepted at an archival conference such as AAAI or IJCAI and also presented at BISFAI, this paper must be substantially revised and/or extended for consideration for journal publication. Previously presented or published papers are unacceptable. The BISFAI-01 program and schedule will be available online ( The BISFAI-01 accepted papers are available online. Abstracts of invited and accepted papers will be made available on the abstracts page, with pointers to online versions of the paper, when available.
