The 23rd annual workshop of the Swedish Artificial Intelligence Society (SAIS) will take place in Umeň, Sweden on May 10-12, 2006. This meeting follows the 2005 meeting in Vństerňs in which the Swedish Society for Learning Systems (SSLS) was officially merged into SAIS. SAIS provides an ideal forum to foster contacts among AI research groups in Sweden and neighboring countries, as well as to establish links with related research disciplines and industry.

This year's program will feature the following invited speakers:

The SAIS program committee invites submissions of research and application papers on all aspects of Artificial Intelligence. Example areas include, but are not limited to:

IMPORTANT DATES:

VENUE:

Umeň is the largest city in the northern half of Sweden and is unofficially known as the 'capital of Norrland.' With a population of 110,000, of which 25,000 are students, Umeň is a young city, with many cultural and recreational activities.

As it happens, the 9 day festival "MADE in Umeň" will start immediately after SAIS 2006 on May 12th. MADE stands for music, art, dance, etc and is a large international music festival, where artists from all over the world and from different music genres get together to celebrate cultural and musical diversity (see http://www.botniamusik.se/ for further details).

For those interested in outdoor activities, Umeň lies on the shores of a rather large river (900 cubic meter / second) and is 15 km from the Baltic Sea. This river is full of salmon, which may be seen jumping a salmon stair by Norrfors dam, 15 km upstream. The record for salmon passing in one year is 7089 fish. Fishing and rafting are possible within one hour from downtown.

The SAIS workshop will be held on the campus of Umeň University in the MIT-Huset building.
