PAPER SUBMISSION INFORMATION
Paper submission is a two-part process:
- You must send in an electronic title page and abstract. This must
be done via the following WWW page: http://www.aaaiservices.org/ConfMan-AA-01/
Full instructions are provided below. Title pages must be submitted no
later than October 9, 2000. If you are genuinely unable to complete
the online form (e.g., you do not have WWW access), then please
contact the Conference program chairs as soon as possible.
- You must submit both electronic and hardcopies of your
papers. Paper submissions must arrive no later than October 16
2000. Submissions received after this date will not be considered for
publication. Authors should submit four (4) copies of papers to the
AAAI (AGENTS 01)
445 Burgess Drive
Menlo Park CA 94025-3496
Telephone: (650) 328-3123
In addition, authors will be required to electronically submit (ftp)
their papers in pdf (preferred) or postscript format. Directions will
be emailed to the author after submitting the abstract at the
following URL: http://www.aaaiservices.org/ConfMan-AA-01/
IMPORTANT NOTE: The electronic title ftp area and the electronic paper
submission ftp area are likely to be very busy on October 9 and
October 16. You are strongly urged to submit your abstract and your
paper as far in advance of 9 October and 16 October respectively.
Submitted papers must be formatted in the style of ACM conference
proceedings (except that authors' names and affiliations
should be omitted along with "Categories and Subject Descriptors" as well as
"General Terms"). Templates (Word, Word Perfect and LaTeX) are available at:
In order to make blind reviewing possible, authors should omit their
names and affiliations from the paper. In place of their names and
affiliations, they should provide the list of content areas and their
paper's tracking number.
Electronically submitted papers must be formatted for 8 1/2" x 11"
paper, but may be printed on 8 1/2" x 11" or A4 paper. Papers must be
no longer than 8 pages, using the style files provided; consult the
Web pages for complete formatting instructions. Over-length papers
will either be rejected or penalized in the review process.
Authors should specify (e.g., in a footnote) if the primary author of
the paper is a student, so that the paper can be considered for the
best student paper award.
SOFTWARE PROTOTYPES TRACK
In addition to conventional conference papers, we strongly encourage
the submission of papers that focus on implemented systems or software
prototypes. These papers require a demonstration of the software
prototype at the conference and should include a detailed
project/system description specifying hw/sw features and requirements.
A clear description of the application domain(s) and other
implementational/system oriented attributes should be included in the
Accepted software prototype papers will be presented within a special
track at the conference along with the implemented system. The papers
will also be reviewed specifically for the special track.
To facilitate special track submission evaluation, you may indicate a
URL with an online-demonstration of the system. Alternatively, you
may include a video or screen snapshots of a system run with the
paper. Screen snapshots or other information that is intended to
illustrate the ability of the authors to demonstrate the system at the
conference may exceed the standard page limit. In other words,
appendices or graphic walk throughs may be added to the standard
submission length without incurring a penalty.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Systems track abstract and paper submissions should be clearly
identified at the beginning of the title as SPT: Paper Title
NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE
All papers will be reviewed by the program committee, and authors will
be notified of acceptance by December 20, 2000.
