CALL FOR PAPERS: Conference on Prestigious Applications of Intelligent Systems, 20 - 21 August 2014, Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC


The PAIS14 Programme Committee invites papers describing innovative applications of AI techniques 
to real-world systems and problems to be submitted to the Technical Programme of the 8th 
International Conference on the Prestigious Applications of Intelligent Systems - a subconference 
of the 21st European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI14).

Papers highlighting all aspects of the application of intelligent systems technology are most 
welcome. Our aim is to provide a forum for academic and industrial researchers and practitioners 
to share experience and insight on the applicability, development and deployment of intelligent 
systems. PAIS is the largest showcase in Europe of real applications using AI technology and is 
the ideal place to meet developers of successful applications.

Papers on all novel and significant applications of intelligent systems are welcome. We encourage 
submissions on deployed (in production use for some period) and emerging (in field testing) 
Both long (6-page) and short (2-page) papers can be submitted. Whereas long papers should report 
on substantial 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 also 
be considered for the short paper track.

Submitted papers must be formatted according to ECAI14 guidelines and submitted electronically 
through the ECAI14 paper submission site. Full instructions including formatting guidelines and 
electronic templates are available on the ECAI14 website.
End of submission period: 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 PAIS14 will be included in ECAI'14 and will be published by IOS Press.

PAIS14/ECAI14 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.
