CALL FOR PAPERS: German Conference on Artificial Intelligence, 22-26 Sep 2014, Stuttgart, GERMANY

KI 2014

KI 2014 is the 37th edition of the German Conference on Artificial
Intelligence, which traditionally brings together academic and industrial
researchers from all areas of AI, providing a premier forum for exchanging
news and research results on theory and applications of intelligent system
technology.  The technical program of KI 2014 will comprise paper and
poster presentations and a variety of workshops and tutorials.  KI 2014
will be co-located with Informatik 2014 (Annual Conference of the German
Informatics Society) and MATES 2014 (The 12th German Conference on Multi-
Agent System Technologies). The conference invites original research papers
from all areas of AI, its fundamentals, its algorithms, its history and its

You are invited to submit original research and application papers on all
aspects of AI research, including but not limited to the following:

- Agent-based and multiagent systems
- AI applications and innovations
- Cognitive modeling
- Commonsense reasoning
- Computer vision
- Constraint satisfaction, search, and optimization
- Evolutionary computation
- Game playing and interactive entertainment
- Information retrieval, integration, and extraction
- Knowledge acquisition and ontologies
- Knowledge representation and reasoning
- Machine learning and data mining
- Multidisciplinary AI
- Natural language processing
- Planning and scheduling
- Robotics - Uncertainty in AI
- Web and information systems

We especially welcome application papers that provide novel insights on
the interplay of AI and the real world, as well as papers that bring useful
computational technologies from other areas of computer science into AI.

======== Important Dates ========

Workshop/Tutorial submission: March 15
Full/Short Paper submission:  May 1
Acceptance notification:      June 23
Final version due:            July 4
KI Workshops and Conference:  September 22-26

======== Workshops, Tutorials, Doctoral Consortium ========

Together with the main conference, we plan to organize a small number of
high-quality workshops and tutorials. We especially encourage workshops
organized by AI Special Interest Groups (GI-Fachgruppen), workshops that
bring together researchers from different disciplines, and workshops that
highlight emerging topics of AI research. Tutorials should target a large
percentage of conference participants, including graduate students as well
as experienced researchers, and practitioners.

The technical program of KI2014 is also complemented by a doctoral consortium
that invites participation by PhD students at any stage and from any subject
area within AI. The KI doctoral consortium is organized as a joint event
with the doctoral program of Informatik 2014, and includes a mentoring
program, a PhD workshop, and poster presentations.

For details on submitting workshop and tutorials and for applying to the
doctoral consortium, please see the KI2014 web page.

======== Submission ========

Submitted papers, which have to be in English, must not exceed 12 pages
in Springer LNCS style for full technical contributions and 6 pages for
short papers. Full technical papers are expected to report on new research
that makes a substantial technical contribution to the field. Short papers
are also included in the main proceedings and can report on new research
or other issues of interest to the AI community.  Examples of work suitable
for short paper submissions include: novel ideas whose scope is not large
enough for a full paper: important implementation techniques; novel
interesting benchmark problems; short experimental studies; interesting
applications that are not yet completely solved or analyzed; position or
challenge papers; etc.  Short paper submissions are especially invited for
software demonstration or PhD work in progress.  Submission will be through
the Easychair conference management system :

Papers will be subject to blind peer review. All papers will be reviewed
based on the standard criteria of relevance, significance of results,
originality of ideas, soundness, and quality of the presentation. All
accepted papers will be published in the main conference proceedings, and
will be presented at the conference. At least one author of each accepted
paper must register for the conference and present the contribution.  The
KI 2014 proceedings will be published by Springer as a volume of the LNAI
(Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence) series.
