International Conference on Autonomous and
Intelligent Systems (AIS 2011)
June 21 - 23, 2011, Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada
Scope and Venue
The 2nd International Conference on Autonomous and Intelligent Systems (AIS 2011) is held in conjunction with the 8th
International Conference on Image Analysis and Recognition (ICIAR 2011) in the beautiful city of Burnaby on the outskirt
of Vancouver, Canada. It aims at providing a platform for researchers, engineers, academics and industrial professionals
to present their recent research work and to explore future trends in various areas of autonomous and intelligent
systems. The conference will address recent advances in theory, methodologies and applications in the ever growing
field. The scientific program will include distinguished keynote and invited speakers and fully refereed contributions that
will be published in a special volume of the Springer Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence. It will be indexed in major
indexing databases. Selected articles will be considered for publication in the Int. Journal of Robotics and Automation
and in the Int. Journal on Control and Intelligent Systems, among other journals. AIS 2011 will be organized into four
tracks, with the list of technical areas in each track given below.
