CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS: 35th German Conference on Artificial Intelligence, 24-27 Sep 2012, Saarbruecken, GERMANY

http://www.dfki.de/ki2012/

KI 2012

KI 2012, the 35th German Conference on Artificial Intelligence, invites original research papers, 
as well as workshop and tutorial proposals from all areas of AI, its fundamentals, its algorithms, 
and its applications.

Together with the main conference, we aim at organizing a small number of high-quality workshops 
suitable for a large percentage of conference participants, including graduate students as well 
as experienced researchers and practitioners.

General Information
---------------------------
Workshops will be free of charge for conference participants and will be held at the first day of 
the conference. Both full-day (6 hours) and half-day (3
hours) workshops are of interest. They should preferably be given in English.
The KI 2012 conference organizers will provide logistic support and meeting places for the 
workshops as well as determine the dates and times of the workshops.
Working and teaching material will be printed by the conference organization. 
Volumes are limited to a total of 200 pages.

How to Propose a Workshop
---------------------------
Proposals should be prepared in PDF, or plain ASCII (two pages) and sent by email to the KI 2012 
Workshop Chair. Each workshop proposal should provide the following information:

     * Description of workshop topic and goal. This description should discuss the relevance of 
the suggested topic and its interest to the general AI community and the KI 2012 audience.
     * Names and full addresses (including email and web address) of the workshop organizer(s). 
This can be a single person or a group of persons. 
Please indicate the primary contact person for the workshop to KI 2012. Strong proposals include 
organizers who bring differing perspectives to the workshop topic and who are actively connected 
to the communities of potential participants.
     * Names and affiliation of the members of the proposed Program Committee.
     * For which areas of AI do you expect to draw participants for your workshop and how many 
participants do you expect? How do you plan to invite participants for the workshop?
     * A brief description of the workshop format regarding the mix of events such as paper 
presentations, invited talks, panels, demonstrations, and general discussions.
     * Do you expect the workshop to be a full-day workshop or a half-day workshop?
     * A list of important dates (submission deadline etc) for the workshop.

Workshop organizers will be responsible for:

     * Producing a call for participation. This call will be posted on the KI
2012 website.
     * Organizers are responsible for additional publicity such as distributing the call to 
relevant newsgroups and electronic mailing lists, and especially to potential audiences from 
outside the KI conference community.
     * Submissions of the workshop papers will be handled by the workshop organizers. Please 
make sure that you have a proper review process.
     * Organizers are encouraged to maintain their own web site with updated information about 
the workshop. This site will be linked from the KI 2012 conference site.
