AAAI-10 Senior Member Presentation Track
Call for Participation
- Paper Submission Deadline: February 9
- Author Notification Deadline: March 16
The Senior Member Presentation Track will be held July 11–15, 2010, in Atlanta, Georgia. 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.
To be eligible to submit to the senior member track, researchers must 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-10 track submissions may not submit to the senior member track.
Authors must register at the AAAI-10 Senior Member web-based technical paper submission site. The software will assign a password, which will enable the author to log on to submit an abstract and paper. In order to avoid a rush at the last minute, authors are encouraged to register as soon as possible.
Electronic paper submission through the AAAI-10 Senior Member paper submission site is required on or (preferably) before February 9. We cannot accept submissions by e-mail or fax.
Submissions must be no more than six pages long, and must adhere to the following guidelines. The first four pages should comprise an extended abstract for the proposed talk (including the title, author name, and affiliation); these pages should be formatted in AAAI two-column, camera-ready style. The submission should also include a two page abbreviated vita of the speaker, including a list of 5–10 relevant publications. Detailed style and format as well as submission instructions are available at the author instructions page. Please note that these formatting instructions are for final, accepted papers; no additional pages can be purchased at the review stage. In addition, the copyright slug may be omitted in the initial submission phase. Papers must be in trouble-free, high resolution PDF format, formatted for US Letter (8.5″ x 11″) paper, using Type 1 or TrueType fonts.
Authors will receive confirmation of receipt of their abstracts or papers, including an ID number, shortly after submission. AAAI will contact authors again only if problems are encountered with papers. Inquiries regarding lost papers must be made no later than February 16, 2010.
Submissions to Other Conferences or Journals
Papers submitted to this conference must not have been accepted for publication elsewhere or be under review for another AI conference. However, to encourage interdisciplinary contributions, we may consider unpublished work that has been submitted or presented in part to a forum outside of AI. The guidelines of the AAAI policy on multiple submissions are fully detailed below, and must be carefully followed.
Accepted Senior Member papers will be allocated four (4) pages in the conference proceedings. Up to two (2) additional pages may be used at a cost to the authors of US$275 per page. Final papers exceeding six (6) pages and those violating the instructions to authors will not be included in the proceedings. Authors will be required to transfer copyright of their paper to AAAI.

AAAI-10 Policy Concerning Submissions to Other Conferences or Journals
Papers submitted to this conference must not have been accepted for publication elsewhere or be under review for another AI conference. (The AAAI Nectar and Challenge paper submissions have specific guidelines that can be found in their respective call for papers.)
To encourage interdisciplinary contributions, AAAI will consider work that has been submitted or presented in part elsewhere, if it is unlikely to have been seen by more than a few members of the AAAI audience (however, see the exception for Challenge Track papers). As such, papers may not be dually submitted to other AI or AI subarea conferences. Papers under submission to a journal that contain overlap with AAAI papers will be considered as long as the author specifies the dual submission and certifies that the journal submission contains significant material that is not included in the AAAI submission. Papers that have been published in full in another conference or journal will not be accepted for review. Novelty is an important criterion in the selection of papers.
AAAI requires the following:
- Authors must specify the conferences and journals to which the paper has been dually submitted.
- Authors must withdraw papers under review or accepted for other AI conference venues if the paper is submitted to AAAI.
- Papers not dually submitted should so indicate on the title page.
For questions as to whether a given meeting is considered under the dual submission policy, or for clarifications of this policy, submitters should contact the Program Chairs.
