FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS: 21st European Conference on Artificial Intelligence, 18-22 August 2014, Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC


The ECAI 2014 Organizing Committee invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with 
the conference. The workshops will be scheduled on August 18 and 19, 2013.

 Proposals by all members of the international AI community are welcome. There is no restriction 
regarding topics, as long as there is a clear relevance to ECAI. We prefer a workshop programme 
that is as varied as possible. 

 Most workshops will follow the classical format of presentations of peer-reviewed papers followed 
by discussion, but other formats (e.g., AI competitions) and entirely new ideas are also welcome. 
Whatever the format, all workshops should be interactive events and ample time should be allocated 
to discussion. The typical duration for a workshop is one full day, but two-day or shorter 
workshops can also be accommodated.

 If you are considering to propose a workshop or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate 
to get in touch with the ECAI-2014 Workshop Chairs, Marina De Vos ( and Karl 
Tuyls (

 The deadline for submission of a workshop proposal is 12 January 2014.

 Detailed submission instructions and further information can be found on
