FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS: 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.
