Call for workshops at ECAI 2016,
the 22nd European Conference on Artificial Intelligence

Under the general theme of “AI for human values”, ECAI 2016 (
www.ecai2016.org) will be held in the city of The Hague, in sight the Peace
Palace, seat of the International Court of Justice. This location is highly
appropriate to the conference theme. The conference dates are 29 August - 2
September 2016, with the workshops taking place on 29-30 August.

The organising committee welcomes proposals for workshops by all members of
the international AI community. There is no restriction regarding topics,
as long as there is a clear relevance to ECAI. We encourage workshops in
the traditional AI topics as Planning, Reasoning, Learning, Multi-Agent
Systems etc., but also multidisciplinary topics as learning in automated
software, AI for Computational Sustainability, AI in the serve of cyber
security and so on.

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 question,
please do not hesitate to get in touch with the ECAI-2016 Workshop Chair
Meir Kalech (workshop-chair at ecai2016.org).
