    Paper Submission

    ASAI 2009 seeks original contributions in a wide spectrum of Artificial Intelligence, ranging from state-of-the-art academic research to industrial and business applications having a significant impact. The symposium will consist of invited talks and regular paper sessions presenting both mature work and new ideas in theoretical research and applications.
    Submissions are due before May 11th 2009. Delayed submissions will most likely be rejected. All papers received before the deadline will be peer-reviewed by referees of the area.
    The submission of manuscripts must follow the format available at All contributions, of maximum 12-page length, should be submitted in Ghostview-readable Postscript or PDF formats. For diffusion reasons, papers in English are strongly recommended (Spanish is also acceptable).
