About these proceedings
The Brazilian Arti?cial Intelligence (AI) community decided in 2004 to organize an International Joint Conference, joining IBERAMIA 2006 (the 10th Ibero-American Arti?cial Intelligence Conference), SBIA 2006 (the 18th Brazilian Arti?cial Int- ligence Symposium), and SBRN 2006 (the 9th Brazilian Neural Networks Sym- sium). This decision was a consequence of the successful event organized in 2000, when the First International Joint Conference IBERAMIA/ SBIA 2000 (7th Ibero- American Arti?cial Intelligence Conference and 15th Brazilian Arti?cial Intel- gence Symposium) occurred in Brazil. Moreover, in 2006 the arti?cial intelligence community celebrated the golden anniversary of the 1956 Dartmouth Conference that marked the beginning of arti?cial intelligence as a research ?eld. th SBIA 2006 was the 18 conference of the SBIA conference series, which is the leading Brazilian conference for the presentation of AI research and applications. Since 1995, SBIA has become an international conference, with papers written in English, an international Program Committee, and proceedings published in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Arti?cial Intelligence (LNAI) series. th IBERAMIA 2006 was the 10 conference of the IBERAMIA conference - ries, which has been one of the most suitable forums for Ibero-American AI researchers (from South and Central American countries, Mexico, Spain and Portugal) to present their results. Following the SBIA and EPIA (Portuguese Conference on AI) experiences, from IBERAMIA 1998 on, it has also become an international conference with proceedings published in Springer’s LNAI series.
