CALL FOR PAPERS: 21st European Conference on Artificial Intelligence, 1822 August 2014, Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC


The biennial European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI) is Europe's premier archival 
venue for presenting scientific results in AI. Organised by the European Coordinating Committee 
for AI (ECCAI), the ECAI conference provides an opportunity for researchers to present and hear 
about the very best research in contemporary AI. As well as a full programme of technical papers, 
ECAI'14 will include the Prestigious Applications of Intelligent Systems conference (PAIS), the 
Starting AI Researcher Symposium (STAIRS), the International Web Rule Symposium (RuleML), and an 
extensive programme of workshops, tutorials, and invited speakers. (Separate calls are issued for 
PAIS, STAIRS, RuleML, tutorials, and workshops.)
ECAI'14 will be held in the beautiful and historic city of Prague, the capital of the Czech 
Republic. With excellent opportunities for sightseeing and gastronomy, Prague promises to be a 
wonderful venue for a memorable conference.
This call invites the submission of papers and posters for the technical programme of ECAI'14.
High-quality original submissions are welcome from all areas of AI; the following list of topics 
is indicative only.
 Agent-based and Multi-agent Systems
 Constraints, Satisfiability, and Search
 Knowledge Representation, Reasoning, and Logic
 Machine Learning and Data Mining
 Natural Language Processing
 Planning and Scheduling
 Robotics, Sensing, and Vision
 Uncertainty in AI
 Web and Knowledge-based Information Systems
 Multidisciplinary Topics

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 be 
considered for the short paper track.
Submitted papers must be formatted according to ECAI'14 guidelines and submitted electronically 
through the ECAI'14 paper submission site. Full instructions including formatting guidelines and 
electronic templates are available on the ECAI'14 website.
Paper submission: 1 March 2014

Notification of acceptance/rejection: 9 May 2014
