Paper Submission

ASAI 2004 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 paper sessions presenting both mature work and 
new ideas in research and applications.

Submissions are due on May 6th 2004. Delayed submissions will most likely 
be rejected. All papers received before the deadline will be peer-reviewed 
by referees of the area.

The submissions of papers must follow the LNCS format
