Call for Papers    STAIRS 2010


The Fifth "Starting Artificial Intelligence Research" Symposium

Co-located with ECAI 2010

16-20 August 2010 ## Lisbon, Portugal

http://ecai2010.appia.pt/stairs

*NEW* Deadline for submission of papers: Thursday, 20 May 2010

######################################################################
## INTRODUCTION
######################################################################

STAIRS 2010 is the fifth European Starting AI Researcher Symposium.
STAIRS is an international meeting intended to support AI researchers,
from all countries, at the beginning of their career: PhD students or
people holding a PhD for less than one year. STAIRS 2010 will be
co-located with ECAI 2010, the European Conference on AI, in Lisbon,
Portugal, over 16-20 August 2010.

STAIRS offers doctoral students and young post-doctoral AI fellows:

* a first experience on submitting and presenting a paper in an
 international forum with a broad scope and a peer review process

* an opportunity to gather knowledge and exchange ideas related to
 their research problems and approaches together with information on
 European research careers and mobility.

Co-location with both ECAI and PAIS aims at creating a unique and
valuable opportunity for young researchers to gain experience at
presenting their work in a supportive scientific environment, and
obtain constructive feedback on the technical content of the work as
well as how to present the work and other related topics.

## PAPER FORMATTING & SUBMISSION INFORMATION
######################################################################

Papers must not exceed SIX (6) pages in camera-ready
format. Over-length submissions will be rejected without
review. Papers for STAIRS should be submitted using the ECAI
formatting style; details of the style are available at:

http://www.csc.liv.ac.uk/~mjw/ecai2010.zip

This file unpacks to a directory "ecai2010", and contains LaTeX and
other style files. The file "ecai2010.tex" is an example paper in
LaTeX format using the appropriate styles, and can be used as a
template for submissions.

Each accepted paper will be allocated SIX (6) pages in the
proceedings.

Multiple submissions with ECAI and PAIS is allowed if this is clearly
indicated on a front page preceding the paper itself. In borderline
cases single submissions will be preferred over multiple
submissions. In case of multiple acceptances the author(s) are
strictly required to withdraw their paper from all but one of the
events.

The proceedings of STAIRS, together with those of its associated
events, ECAI and PAIS, will be published and distributed by IOS
Press as a book and as a CD-ROM. The authors will be responsible for
producing camera-ready copies of papers, conforming to the ECAI 2010
formatting guidelines for inclusion in the proceedings. At least one
author of each accepted paper or poster is required to attend the
conference to present the contribution.

Submission and review of papers for STAIRS 2010 will be managed via
the EasyChair system:

http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=stairs2010

All submissions will be subject to LIGHT TOUCH review, with the goal
of providing constructive feedback to authors.

Depending on the quality of submissions, a subset of accepted papers
will be invited to submit a revised version to a journal special
issue.

IMPORTANT NOTE: At least one of the authors must be a PhD student, or
a person holding a PhD for less than one year. Papers not satisfying
this criterion will be rejected.
