December 1-2, 2011

Sponsored by: The Japanese Society for Artificial Intelligence (JSAI)

Sunport Hall Takamatsu, Takamatsu [website][MAP]

Information/Registration: 5th Floor
Conference Rooms: 5th and 6th Floor


The third JSAI International Symposia on AI (JSAI-isAI) will take
place in Takamatsu on December 1st (Thursday) and 2nd (Friday),
2011. JSAI-isAI is an event that hosts several international workshops
at the same location. This is in succession to the international
workshops co-located with JSAI annual conferences since 2001. The
JSAI-isAI 2011 committee has selected the following five outstanding
workshops. For those who are interested in participating and attending
one of those workshops, please visit the web page of each workshop and
contact the organizer(s). We are looking forward to meeting you all at
JSAI-isAI 2011.

Workshop 1
8th International Workshop on Logic and Engineering of Natural Language Semantics (LENLS 8)
Workshop 2
Curation and Communication
Workshop 3
Fifth International Workshop on Juris-informatics (JURISIN 2011)
Workshop 4
Second International Workshop on Algorithms for Large-Scale Information Processing in Knowledge Discovery (ALSIP 2011)
Workshop 5
Coordination of multimodality in multispace interaction (MiMI)

Workshop 1: 8th International Workshop on Logic and Engineering of Natural Language Semantics (LENLS 8)

LENLS is an annual international workshop focusing on formal
semantics and pragmatics. We invite submissions to this year’s
workshop on topics in formal semantics and pragmatics, and related
fields, including but in no way limited to the following:

  • Dynamic syntax/semantics/pragmatics of natural language
  • Categorical/topological/coalgebraic approaches for natural
    language syntax/semantics/pragmatics
  • Logic and its relation
    to natural language and linguistic reasoning (especially
    dynamic logics)
  • Type-theoretic approaches to natural language
  • Formal Philosophy of language
  • Formal pragmatics (especially game- and utility-theoretic approaches)
  • Substructural expansion of Lambek Lambda Calculi
  • Many-valued/Fuzzy and other non-classical logics and natural language

Workshop Chair: Alastair Butler (JST PRESTO/Tohoku University)

Workshop 2:Curation and Communication

This workshop aims to discuss an effective strategy for curation and
communication. Traditionally, curation is not only concerned with
long-term care of books, paintings or other artefacts. However, we
propse a new type of curation as is in recent curational fashion. That
is, we add a more active action to chance discovery, which curators
usually struggle to explicitly or implicitly express extended or
hidden meanings (values) to potential audiences. In additon, by
curation we will focus active communication in which users can
discover novel or rare events or matters which may have a significant
impact on human decision making. Such communication might be achieved
in advertisement communication, but for chance discovery we can add
more active but implicit communication strategy.

Workshop 3:Fifth International Workshop on Juris-informatics (JURISIN 2011)

Aims and scope: Juris-informatics is a new research area which studies
legal issues from the perspective of informatics. The purpose of this
workshop is to discuss both the fundamental and practical issues for
juris-informatics among people from the various backgrounds such as
law, social science, information and intelligent technology, logic and
philosophy, including the conventional “AI and law” area.

Topics: Relevant topics include, but are not limited to, the

  • Legal reasoning
  • Argumentation/Argumentation agent
  • Legal term ontology
  • Formal / Intelligent management of legal knowledge-base
  • Translation of legal documents
  • Computer-aided law education
  • Use of Informatics and AI in law
  • Legal issues on ubiquitous computing/multi-agent system/the Internet
  • Social implications of use of informatics and AI in law

Workshop Chairs:Shozo Ota (Univ. of Tokyo), Ken Satoh (National Institute of Informatics)

Workshop 4:Second International Workshop on Algorithms for
Large-Scale Information Processing in Knowledge Discovery
(ALSIP 2011)

Information created by people has increased rapidly in these score of years
and now we are facing the information-explosion era.
To cope with such a large-scale information space, novel algorithms and
data structures are desired for solving various problems in the area of
knowledge discovery.
This workshop aims to exchange fresh ideas on large-scale data processing
in the problems such as data mining, clustering, machine learning,
statistical analysis, and other computational aspect of knowledge
discovery problems.

Workshop Chairs:Koji Tsuda (National Institute of Advanced Industrial
Science and Technology), Shin-ichi Minato (Hokkaido University)

Workshop 5:
International Workshop on Multimodality in Multispace Interaction (MiMI)

In the last couple of decades, there has been a growing interest in
complex ways in which multimodality including vocal, visual, aural, and
gestural apparatus of speaking is played out in seemingly simple
activities such as an everyday conversation between two people. In this
workshop, we discuss how multispace is managed in socially, temporally,
and sequentially complex environments. Our foci on multispace include,
but are not limited to computer-mediated interactions, media-mediated
interaction, longitudinally established interactional spaces, and
multiple cognitive images within a speaker懽fs viewpoints for producing
language and gesture. We hope that the reconsideration of theoretical
frameworks discussed in our workshop contributes to recent
interdisciplinary attentions to, among other things, human communication
in artificial intelligence, human-computer interaction, humanoid
robotics, human-agent interaction with distance.
