The 18th convention of the Canadian Society for the Computational research of Intelligence (CSCSI) endured the good fortune of its predecessors. This set of - pers re?ects the range of the Canadian AI group and its overseas companions. AI 2005 attracted a hundred thirty five fine quality submissions: sixty four from Canada and seventy one from all over the world. of those, 8 have been written in French. All submitted papers have been completely reviewed by means of not less than 3 individuals of this system Committee. a complete of 30 contributions, authorized as lengthy papers, and 19 as brief papers are incorporated during this quantity. We invited 3 unusual researchers to offer talks approximately their present study pursuits: Eric Brill from Microsoft study, Craig Boutilier from the collage of Toronto, and Henry Krautz from the college of Washington. The association of any such profitable convention bene?ted from the coll- oration of lots of individuals. top-rated, we want to specific our apprec- tion to this system Committee participants and exterior referees, who supplied well timed and signi?cant reports. to regulate the submission and reviewing technique we used the Paperdyne method, which used to be built by way of Dirk Peters.
