(Apologies for cross-posting)

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

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
