MATES-2011: Ninth German Conference on Multi-Agent System Technologies


KI 2011 is the 34th edition of the German Conference on Artificial
Intelligence, which traditionally brings together academic and
industrial researchers from all areas of AI. The technical programme
of KI 2011 will comprise paper and poster presentations and a
variety of workshops and tutorials.

KI 2011 will take place in Berlin, Germany, October 4-7, 2011,
and is a premier forum for exchanging news and research results
on theory and applications of intelligent system technology.

The applications of Artificial Intelligence are abundant and widespread.
In fact, Artificial Intelligence has become such a mainstay in today's
world that it is taken for granted by the majority of people who benefit
from its efficiency. Therefore, the focus of the conference is on technical

"Towards a Smart World - Evolving Technologies in AI"

The conference invites original research papers from all areas of AI,
its fundamentals, its algorithms, its history and its applications.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to

* Knowledge Acquisition, Representation, Reasoning and Ontologies,
* Combinatorial Search, Configuration, Design and Deduction,
* Natural Language Processing, Statistical NLP, Semantics,
* Planning and Scheduling; Spatial and Temporal Reasoning,
* Reasoning under Uncertainty, Probabilistic Inferences,
* Non-Monotonic Reasoning and Default Logics,
* Constraint Satisfaction, Processing and Programming,
* Embodied AI: Robotics, Vision and Perception,
* Intelligent Information Retrieval, Semantic Search, Semantic Web,
* Evolutionary and Neural Computation,
* Machine Learning, Computational Learning Theory and Data-Mining,
* Distributed Problem Solving and Multi-Agent Systems,
* Game Playing and Interactive Entertainment, AI for Graphics
* Game Theory and General Game Playing, Generalized Intelligence,
* AI for Human-Computer-Interaction and Adaptive Communication,
* Mobile Solutions with Textile, Semantic and Spatial Media,
* Augmented Reality, Smart Cities, Smart Traffic, Smart Hardware,
* Assistance Systems in Living and Working Environments,
* Software-Engineering, Model Checking and Security in AI,
* Distributed Computation and Swarm Intelligence,
* Cognitive Modelling, AI and Psychology,
* History and Philosophical Foundations of AI,
* Applications including Logistics, Production and Health Care.

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


Submission Guidelines

Submitted papers, which have to be in English, must not exceed 12 pages
in Springer LNCS style for full technical contributions and 4 pages for
short contributions.

Full technical papers are expected to report on new research that
makes a substantial technical contribution to the field and is placed
in the context of existing work.

Short papers can report on new research or other issues of interest to
the AI community. Examples of work suitable for short papers
include: novel ideas that are not yet fully developed or 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.

Conference submission is electronic, in pdf (preferred) or postscript
available on


All papers will be reviewed based on the standard criteria of clarity,
relevance, significance, originality, and soundness.

All accepted papers will be published in the main conference
proceedings, and will be presented at the conference.
At least one author per accepted paper must register for the conference
and present the contribution.

MATES 2011 and KI 2011 will include a joint doctoral mentoring program,
aimed at PhD students at advanced stages of their research. This program
will provide an opportunity for students to interact closely with
researchers in their fields, to receive feedback on their work and to
get advice
on managing their careers.
