WTDIA-2010 is satellite event of the Joint Conference 2010, which will be held in FEI University Campus at São Bernardo do Campo, São Paulo, Brazil, in the last week of October.

WTDIA provides an opportunity for PhD and MSc students in Brazil to present their ongoing research with a panel of established researchers in Artificial Intelligence. The workshop has the following objectives:

  • to provide a setting for mutual feedback on participants' current research and guidance on future research directions;
  • to develop a supportive community of scholars and a spirit of collaborative research;
  • to contribute to the conference goals through interaction of graduate students with other researchers as well as participation in conference events;
  • to increase the visibility of ongoing work for the academic and industrial community.

Topics of Interest

WTDIA welcome research work in all Artificial Intelligence topics. They include but are not limited to:

  • Constraints and Search;
  • Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition;
  • Distributed AI: Autonomous Agent, Multi-Agent Systems and Game Theory;
  • Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (including Commonsense Reasoning, Logics, Probabilistic Reasoning, Ontologies, Semantic Web);
  • Machine Learning and Data Mining;
  • Model-Based Reasoning;
  • Natural Language Processing;
  • Planning and Scheduling;
  • Robotics;

Paper Submission and Review

Papers can be written in English or in Portuguese and must not exceed 10 pages, including title, abstract, all tables, figures, and references.

We expect papers with research purposes and appropriate motivation, literature review, and methods. Results (preliminary, at least) are desirable, but not necessary. Papers should include the following information in the first page after the abstract: student level (MSc or PhD) and expected date of conclusion. In addition, include the name of the advisor (and co-advisors) as co-authors.

Submissions violating the formatting guidelines will be excluded from the reviewing process.

Only papers in pdf format will be accepted.

Papers may be accepted for oral or poster presentation. All WTDIA accepted papers will be published in CD-ROM proceedings.

At least one author of each accepted paper must attend the conference to present the work. We recommend that the students present their works, as the events may be a valuable experience for them.
