Last call for papers! ###################################################################### ## ECAI-2012 ## Call for Papers ## ECAI-2012 ## ###################################################################### The Twentieth European Conference on Artificial Intelligence 27-31 August 2012 Montpellier, France http://www2.lirmm.fr/ecai2012/ Deadline for submission of papers: 6 March 2012 ###################################################################### ## INTRODUCTION ## ###################################################################### ECAI is the biennial European Conference on Artificial Intelligence organized by the European Coordinating Committee for Artificial Intelligence (ECCAI); it is the premier forum for presenting Artificial Intelligence results in Europe. The twentieth conference in this series, ECAI 2012, will take place in Montpellier (France) August 27-31. ECAI 2012 will gather researchers and practitioners of Artificial Intelligence from all over the world; they will present the latest results and identify new trends and challenges in all subfields of Artificial Intelligence as well as demonstrate innovative applications and uses of advanced Artificial Intelligence technology. In addition to the main technical track, ECAI 2012 will feature keynote and invited talks, invited tutorials, an elaborate workshop program, a system demonstration track, a Turing centenary celebration, in which we will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Alan Turing and his influence on Artificial Intelligence, and a special session on Highlights of European AI, to celebrate the 20th ECAI conference and 25 years of AI Communications. ECAI 2012 will also feature the 6th STAIRS (STarting AI Researcher Symposium) and the 6th PAIS (Conference on Prestigious Applications of Intelligent Systems) as sub-conferences. ECAI-2012 will be held in the beautiful city of Montpellier, France. With excellent opportunities for sightseeing and gastronomy, Montpellier promises to be a wonderful venue for a memorable conference. ###################################################################### ## SUBMISSIONS ## ###################################################################### ECAI 2012 welcomes submissions of technical papers to the main track. Submitted papers should present original, high-quality and previously unpublished results on Artificial Intelligence. Submissions are welcome from all areas of AI; the following list of topics is indicative only. * Agents & Multiagent Systems * Case-Based Reasoning * Cognitive Modeling & Interaction * Constraints & Search * Knowledge Representation & Reasoning * Machine Learning & Data Mining * Model-Based Reasoning * Natural Language Processing * Perception & Sensing * Planning & Scheduling * Robotics * Uncertainty in AI * Applications of AI ECAI 2012 especially encourages submissions that cross discipline boundaries within Artificial Intelligence, and between Artificial Intelligence and other disciplines. Both long (6-page) and short (2-page) papers can be submitted. Whereas long papers should report on substantial research results, short papers are intended for highly promising but possibly more preliminary work. Short papers will be presented in poster form. Rejected long papers will not be considered for the short paper track. ECAI 2012 also welcomes submissions of proposals for workshops, descriptions of system-demonstrations, papers on prestigious applications of AI for PAIS, and contributions of starting researchers in AI for STAIRS; cf. the separate calls for these tracks. ###################################################################### ## IMPORTANT DATES ECAI Technical Program ## ###################################################################### Paper submission deadline: Tuesday, 6 March 2012 Author response period between(indicative): 18-23 April 2012 Notification of acceptance/rejection: Monday, 21 May 2012 Camera-ready paper due: Sunday, 3 June 2012 Conference: 27-31 August 2012 ###################################################################### ## PAPER FORMATTING & SUBMISSION INFORMATION ## ###################################################################### Long papers must not exceed SIX (6) and short papers must not exceed TWO (2) pages in camera-ready format for ECAI. Over-length submissions will be rejected without review. Papers for ECAI should be submitted using the ECAI formatting style; details of the style are available at: http://people.cs.kuleuven.be/~luc.deraedt/ecai2012-style.zip This file unpacks to a directory "ecai2012", and contains LaTeX and other style files. The file "ecai2012.tex" is an example paper in LaTeX format using the appropriate styles, and can be used as a template for ECAI submissions. A Microsoft Word template is also available. Reviewing for ECAI 2012 will be blind: reviewers will not be presented with the identity of paper authors. To allow for blind review, author names in a submitted paper or poster should be replaced by the unique tracking number assigned by the conference website at the submission of an electronic abstract. Authors should avoid writing anything that makes their identity obvious in the text. Submissions should be original, and in particular should not previously have been formally published. (Any publication venue with an ISBN or ISSN number counts as a formal publication; this includes LNCS/LNAI volumes, for example.) Submissions should not be submitted elsewhere during the ECAI 2012 review phase. The proceedings of the ECAI conference, together with those of the PAIS symposium will be published and distributed by IOS Press as an online open access book. (The proceedings of some past ECAI conferences are freely available on the IOS website). The authors will be responsible for producing camera-ready copies of papers, conforming to the ECAI formatting guidelines for inclusion in the proceedings. At least one author of each accepted long or short paper is required to attend the conference to present the contribution. Submission and review of papers for ECAI-2012 will be managed via the ConfMaster system. Confmaster may be live for ECAI submissions before 31 January. Prior to this date, the site will be used for configuration and testing. All data uploaded or registered before this date will be deleted and will not be considered for the conference. Do NOT register or upload papers before 31 January 2012! All submissions will be subject to peer review by the ECAI 2012 Programme Committee, and evaluated on the basis of: relevance; significance of contribution; technical quality; scholarship; and quality of presentation. The authors of the best papers of ECAI 2012 will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper to the Artificial Intelligence Journal. The primary authors of submitted papers will be offered the opportunity to respond to the reviews for their papers before the final decision on acceptance or otherwise is made. The author feedback phase is currently planned between 18-23 April 2012. ###################################################################### ## ORGANISATION ## ###################################################################### Conference Chair : Didier Dubois ECAI Program Chair : Luc De Raedt Organizing Committee Chair: Christian Bessiere ECCAI Chair: Gerhard Brewka Workshop Chairs: Jérôme Lang and Michèle Sebag System-Demonstration Chairs: Patrick Doherty and Fredrik Heintz STAIRS Program Chair: Kristian Kersting and Marc Toussaint PAIS Program Chairs: Paolo Frasconi and Peter Lucas Turing Centenary Celebration Chair: Michael Wooldridge ###################################################################### ## LOCAL ORGANIZING COMMITTEE ## ###################################################################### LIRMM supervisor: Christophe Dhenaut Logistics: Elisabeth Greverie, Justine Landais, Eric Bourreau Treasurer: Michel Leclere, Laetitia Megual Technical support: Remi Coletta Web site: Michel Liquiere Sponsoring: Remi Coletta Publicity: Marie-Laure Mugnier, Madalina Croitoru Other members: Stefano Cerri, Abdel Gouaich, Joel Quinqueton AFIA contacts: Patrick Albert, Yves Demazeau, Thomas Guyet, Eunika Mercier-Laurent, Jean-Denis Muller ###################################################################### ## AREA CHAIRS ## ###################################################################### Area chairs currently confirmed include: Michael Beetz [Germany] Ronen Brafman [Israel] Fabio Cozman [Brazil] James Cussens [UK] Thomas Eiter [Austria] Johannes Fuernkranz [Germany] Hector Geffner [Spain] Marco Gori [Italy] Udo Hahn [Germany] Malte Helmert [Switzerland] Manfred Jaeger [Denmark] Sarit Kraus [Israel] Andreas Krause [Switzerland] Jerome Lang [France] Pierre Marquis [France] John-Jules Meyer [The Netherlands] Bernhard Nebel [Germany] Ann Nowé [Belgium] Barry O'Sullivan [Ireland] Francesca Rossi [Italy] Michele Sebag [France] Carles Sierra [Spain] Steffen Staab [Germany] Peter Struss [Germany] Michael Thielscher [Australia] Hannu Toivonen [Finland] Antal van den Bosch [The Netherlands] Pascal Van Hentenryck [US] Michael Wooldridge [UK] Frank Wolter [UK] ###################################################################### ## KEYNOTE SPEAKERS ## ###################################################################### The ECAI-2012 programme will include plenary talks from internationally leading researchers in AI and cognate disciplines.
