CALL FOR PAPERS: Artificial Intelligence, 18-22 Aug 2014, Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC

ECAI 2014

The Twenty-first European Conference on Artificial Intelligence
 18-22 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, 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
 Author feedback: 14-18 April 2014
 Notification of acceptance/rejection: 9 May 2014
 Camera-ready copy due: 30 May 2014

 The proceedings of ECAI'14 will be published by IOS Press.

 Best papers go AIJ

 The authors of the best papers (and runner ups) of ECAI'14 will be invited 
to submit an extended version of their paper to the Artificial 
Intelligence Journal.
