    IBERAMIA 2004

    9TH Ibero-American Conference on Artificial Intelligence
    Puebla, Mexico
    November 22-26, 2004

    ========================================================

    IBERAMIA is the international forum where the Ibero-american AI
    community meet together for presenting and discussing the research and
    development carried out in South and Central America countries, Spain, and
    Portugal.
    The IX Ibero-American Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IBERAMIA) will
    take place at Puebla, Mexico, hosted by the Instituto Nacional de
    Astrofisica Optica y Electronica (INAOE), from November 22-26, 2004.

    IBERAMIA is supported by the Ibero-American societies of AI
             AEPIA - Asociacion Espanola para Inteligencia Artificial
             APPIA - Associašao Portuguesa para Inteligencia Artificial
             SBC - Sociedade Brasileira de Computašao, Brazil
             SMIA - Sociedad Mexicana de Inteligencia Artificial

    The first IBERAMIA conference was held in 1988 at Barcelona. Since then
    IBERAMIA has been the forum to debate research and development on AI in
    Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries. Following Barcelona IBERAMIA
    conferences were held every two years Morelia 1990( Mexico), La Habana 1992
    (Cuba), Caracas 1994 (Venezuela), Cholula 1996 (Mexico), Lisboa 1998
    (Portugal), Sao Paolo 2000 (Brazil), and Sevilla 2002 (Spain).
    In these sixteen years, the goals of IBERAMIA have been to strengthen the
    relationship among the AI research groups of the Ibero-American community,
    to create the appropriate conditions for researchers to disseminate their
    research work and to facilitate the contact between new researchers and
    consolidated groups.

    The conference will be structured along two main modules:
          . workshops track
          . paper track

    The workshops track is composed of working sessions devoted to the most
    important areas of AI research in Ibero-American countries. Papers
    submitted to this workshops track may be written in Portuguese, Spanish or
    English; they will be reviewed and published in a local edition.

    The paper track is composed of invited talks and paper presentations from
    all over the world, covering all topics listed above. Proceedings of this
    paper track will be published in Springer Verlag's LNCS/LNAI series.
