======== Call for papers KI 2016  / ÖGAI-Tagung 2016 ========

39th German Conference on Artificial Intelligence / ÖGAI-Tagung 2016
September 26-30, 2016
Klagenfurt, Austria



KI 2016 is the 39th edition of the German Conference on Artificial 
Intelligence organized by Fachbereich Künstliche Intelligenz der 
Gesellschaft für Informatik in conjunction with Österreichische 
Gesellschaft für Artificial Intelligence. KI traditionally brings 
together academic and industrial researchers from all areas of AI, 
providing an ideal place for exchanging news and research results of 
intelligent system technology. The technical program of KI 2016 will 
comprise paper and poster presentations and a variety of workshops and 
tutorials. For the second time KI will take place in Austria. This time 
KI 2016 will be in Klagenfurt from September 26th-30th, 2016. KI 2016 is 
co-located with Informatik 2016 (Annual Conference of the German 
Informatics Society) and MATES 2016 (The 14th German Conference on 
Multi-Agent System Technologies).

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 multi-agent systems
- AI applications and innovations
- Cognitive modelling
- Commonsense reasoning
- Computer vision
- Diagnosis and configuration
- 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
- Recommender systems
- 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 submission: Jan 29, 2016
Workshop notification: Feb 8, 2016
Full/Short Paper submission: May 13, 2016
Acceptance notification: June 27, 2016
Final version due: July 8, 2016
KI Workshops and Conference: September 26-30, 2016

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

Together with the main conference, we plan to organize a small number of 
high-quality workshops. 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.

The technical program of KI 2016 is also complemented by a doctoral 
consortium that invites participation by PhD students at any stage and 
from any subject area within AI.

For details on submitting workshop proposals and for applying to the 
doctoral consortium, please see the KI2016 webpage (http://ki2016.org).

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

We invite papers, which have to be in English and formatted according to 
the Springer LNCS style, in the following two categories

* Full technical papers (12 pages max., excluding references) are 
expected to report on new research that makes a substantial technical 
contribution to the field. Additional details may be included in an 
appendix, which, however, will be read at the discretion of the PC.

* Technical communications (6 pages max., excluding references) can 
report on research in progress, research already published elsewhere, or 
other issues of interest to the AI community. Examples of work suitable 
for technical communication 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 
analysed; position or challenge papers; etc. Technical communication 
submissions are especially invited for software demonstration or PhD 
work in progress.

Submission will be through the EasyChair conference management system:


All papers will be subject to blind peer review 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 2016 
proceedings will be published by Springer as a volume of the LNAI 
(Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence) series.
