The biennial European Conference  on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI) is
Europe’s premier venue for presenting  scientific results in AI.  Under the
general theme of “AI for human values”, the 22nd edition of ECAI will be
held in the city of The Hague, in sight the Peace Palace, seat of the
International Court of Justice, a location highly appropriate to the
conference theme. The conference dates are 29 August - 2 September 2016,

We invite the submission of papers for the technical programme of the 2016
European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI 2016). High-quality
original submissions are welcome from all areas of Artificial Intelligence.
The following list of topics is indicative; other topics are welcome.

 • Autonomous Agents 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, Perception and Vision

 • Uncertainty in AI

 • Web and Knowledge-based Information Systems

 • Cognitive Modeling and Cognitive Architectures

 • Agent-based and integrated systems

 • Multidisciplinary Topics

ECAI 2016 also welcomes contributions to a special topic: *Artificial
Intelligence for Human Values, *addressing the ethical, legal, and societal
impact of AI.

Important dates

 • Paper submission: 15th April 2016 (23:59:59 CET)

 • Author feedback: 29th-31st May 2016

 • Notification of acceptance/rejection: 7th June 2016

Submitted papers must be formatted according to the camera-ready style for
ECAI'16 available at
http://www.ecai2016.org/content/uploads/2015/10/ecai.tar.gz, and submitted
electronically in PDF format through ecai2016.confmaster.net. Authorship is
not anonymous.

Papers are allowed eight (8) pages. An additional page containing the list
of references is allowed---as long as this ninth page contains only
references. Short papers, not exceeding two (2) pages, may be submitted for
poster presentation and will be subjected to light review. Accepted short
papers will not be published in the conference proceedings. Over-length
submissions will be rejected without review.

Submissions must be original, and in particular should not previously have
been formally published, accepted for publication, or be currently under

Also, submissions must not be submitted elsewhere during the ECAI 2016
reviewing phase.

These restrictions apply to journals and conferences, not to workshops and
similar specialized presentations with a limited audience and without
archival proceedings.
Submitting and reviewing

All submissions will be subject to peer review by the ECAI 2016 Program
Committee, and evaluated on the basis of:

 • significance of contribution

 • originality of contribution

 • relevance to ECAI

 • technical quality

 • presentation quality

 • scholarship

Reviewing is single-blinded. Submission and review of papers for ECAI 2016
will be managed via the ConfMaster system: ecai
<http://ecai2016.confmaster.net> When a submission was previously rejected
by IJCAI 2015, the program chairs intend to make use of the IJCAI reviews
as part of the ECAI review process. The mechanism for this is currently
under discussion.

Proceedings and presentation

The proceedings of the conference will be published by IOS Press. The
chairs of ECAI 2016 are currently in negotiation with AI Communications,
the European AI journal, published by IOS Press, over establishing a route
to journal publication of ECAI accepted papers. The details of this
arrangement will be confirmed shortly.

The proceedings of recent ECAI conferences are freely available on the IOS

The authors will be responsible for producing camera-ready copies of papers
in PDF format, conforming to the ECAI'16 formatting guidelines for
inclusion in the published proceedings of the conference.

At least one author of each accepted paper is required to attend the
conference to present the contribution.
Workshops and events

Separate calls are issued for workshop and tutorial proposals, as well as
for contributions to PAIS 2016, the Prestigious Applications of Intelligent
Systems conference, and  STAIRS 2016, the Starting AI Researcher Symposium.

This year ECAI will host AIckathon, the first hackathon for development of
AI apps. Details of this competition, and rules for participation, will be
issued separately.
