The Pacific Rim International Conference on Artificial Intelligence (PRICAI)
is the leading conference in the Pacific Rim region for presentation of
research in Artificial Intelligence, including its applications to problems
social and economic importance. The objectives of PRICAI are:

  to provide a forum for the introduction and discussion of new research
  results, concepts, & technologies;

  to provide practising engineers exposure to and an evaluation of evolving
  research, tools, and practices;

  to provide the research community exposure to the problems of practical
  applications of AI; and

  to encourage the exchange of AI technologies and experience within Pacific
  Rim countries.

PRICAI 2000 attempts to meet the needs of a large and diverse constituency,
which includes researchers, practitioners, educators, and users. Topics of
PRICAI 2000 include:

Papers describing both theoretical and applied research in AI are welcome.

Papers should be no longer than 10 pages including all tables, figures, and
references but excluding a cover page. Over-length papers may be rejected
without review.

Submissions should preferably use the LaTeX style file llncs.sty provided by
Springer and available from
Submissions not prepared in LaTeX should conform approximately to the
configuration of the llncs style: single column, 10 point text, 122mm text
width, no more than 46 lines per page.

Authors must submit an electronic titlepage. Point a web browser at

and complete the form there. The required information is:
- Title of the paper
- Author names with affiliations, addresses, and phone numbers;
- Email address of the contact author;
- Abstract of no more than 200 words;
- At least 1 and no more than 4 content areas selected from the list above.

All papers should be sent electronically to:

Postscript is preferred (optionally compressed or gzipped). Other formats
as PDF or MsWord may be accepted at the discretion of the Program Chair.

If you have any query for submission, please contact John K. Slaney

Multiple submission policy for papers
Papers that are being submitted to other conferences, whether verbatim or
in essence, must reflect this fact on the title page. If a paper is accepted
at another conference (with the exception of specialised workshops), it must

be withdrawn from PRICAI 2000. Papers that do not meet these requirements
subject to rejection without review.
