The Senior Member Presentation Track provides an opportunity for established researchers to give a broad talk on a well-developed body of research, an important new research area, or a thoughtful critique of trends in the field. These presentations should provide a “big picture” view—in contrast to regular papers, which may focus on a specific contribution. Submissions are short (a two-page abstract, plus biography and references) and review will be expedited.
To be eligible to submit to the senior member track, researchers had to be at least ten years out from their Ph.D., and have a track record of publishing on their topic. First authors on other AAAI-08 track submissions were not eligible to submit to the senior member track.
