Call for Special Tracks (CLOSED)

Special tracks, held in parallel with the general conference, are an integral part of the conference. They provide researchers in focused areas the opportunity to meet and present their work, and offer a forum for interaction among the broader community of artificial intelligence researchers. Special track papers are required to meet the same standards as papers in the general conference and are published in the same conference proceedings.

Topics of interest are in all areas of artificial intelligence. In 2010, special tracks included AI Education; AI, Cognitive Semantics and Computational Linguistics: New Perspectives; Applied Natural Language Processing; Case-Based Reasoning; Cognition and AI: Capturing Cognitive Plausibility and Informing Psychological Processes; Data Mining; Games and Entertainment; Intelligent Tutoring Systems; and Uncertain Reasoning.

Submission of proposals for special tracks is now invited. Proposals must be submitted to the EasyChair conference system. Special track chairs may submit papers to their own tracks. Those papers will be reviewed by two members of the special track's program committee and two members of the general conference program committee, and acceptance decisions will be made by the conference program co-chairs. Chairs of special tracks will work closely with the Special Track's coordinator, and are expected to respond promptly and communicate regularly in order to maximize the potential impact of the track. Proposals must be made using the special track template. Please include the following information in all proposals:

  1. Title of the special track.
  2. Anticipated numbers of submissions and accepted papers. A track may have up to 4 sessions, with 3 papers per session. Special tracks that fail to attract sufficient papers will be merged into the general conference or suitable alternative track.
  3. Names and contact information for the special track chair(s) and those who have so far agreed to serve on the special track's program committee. The program committee should be large enough for each paper to have 4 reviews.
  4. Promotional plans and materials, including a draft call for papers, specific plans for publicizing the special track (including possible conference/CFP announcement websites), and the names of any speakers you are considering inviting. (FLAIRS cannot offer any form of financial support for special track invited speakers at this stage.)
  5. Summary of any special tracks you have organized for FLAIRS over the last two years: special track title(s), year(s), number of submissions (full paper and poster), and number of acceptances (full paper and poster).

Thomas Landauer

Dr. Tom Landauer is Professor Emeritus and Senior Research Associate at the University of Colorado at Boulder, and Executive Vice President for Research at Pearson Knowledge Technologies where he and his colleagues develop automated assessment and teaching technologies. After a Harvard Ph.D, Dr. Landauer served on the faculties of Dartmouth and Stanford, and spent 25 years in the research department of Bell Laboratories and it successor Bellcore. He is perhaps best known for his work as leader of teams that developed Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA) and many of its applications. His broad interests are in how knowledge and language are acquired, stored and used, and in creation of assessment and instruction methods that enhance learning. His current focus is on individualized measurement of vocabulary. He is a devoted proponent of the "Pasteur's Quadrant" scientific method: taking problems from practical needs, finding solutions by empirical research and rigorous modeling, and testing theories and solutions by their effectiveness and completeness in solving the inspiring practical problem. His research has almost always centered on some aspect of learning, from its physiology and biochemistry to the effects of practice schedules to mathematical theories of its mechanisms and to applications as diverse as marketing, children's physical and social development, human-computer interaction, and the specification of memorable telephone numbers.


Rosalind Picard

Dr. Rosalind Picard received her bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, and her master's and doctorate degrees in electrical engineering and computer science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She has been a member of the faculty at the MIT Media Laboratory since 1991. She is the founder and director of the Affective Computing Research group at MIT. She is also the co-director of the Things that Think Consortium, and the leader of Autism Communication Initiative at MIT. She co-founded Affectiva, Inc. in 2009, and serves as chairman and chief scientist.
