19th International Conference of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence

Call for papers

Topics of Interest

The conference covers broadly the many aspects of theoretical and applied Artificial Intelligence. A series of workshops dedicated to specific topics enhances the program. AIxIA 2020 welcomes submissions covering all areas of AI, including (but not limited to) machine learning, search, planning, knowledge representation, reasoning, constraint satisfaction, natural language processing, robotics and perception, and multiagent systems. We encourage all types of high-quality contributions including theoretical, engineering and applied papers. We also encourage contributions on AI techniques in the context of novel application domains, such as security, sustainability, health care, transportation, security and commerce.

Besides regular papers presenting results that have not been published in previous publications, we also welcome short discussion papers (maximum eight pages) containing descriptions of results recently published or accepted for the presentation in international conferences or position papers on potentially controversial topics in AI. Discussion papers are introduced as an opportunity for the authors to present their recent results to the AI community and to stimulate debate among attendees of AIxIA 2020. Discussion papers containing descriptions of recently published results must be more broadly accessible than regular papers and focus on the explanation of the contribution and the discussion of key findings and their impact. Discussion papers addressing a position and/or a debate over a topic must provide a solid argumentative structure.

At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register and attend the conference to present the work.

Proceedings of Regular Papers

The accepted regular papers will be included in the proceedings of the conference, and will be published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI series). Authors of selected regular papers accepted to the main track will be invited to submit an extended version for publication on "Intelligenza Artificiale", the International Journal of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence, edited by IOS Press and indexed by Thomson Reuters' "Emerging Sources Citation Index" and Scopus by Elsevier.

Proceedings of Discussion Papers

The discussion papers will not be included in the LNAI proceedings of the conference, and will be published on CEUR WS Proceedings upon request.

Best Papers

The Program Committee will select the Best Student Paper Award and the Best Paper Award from the accepted regular papers. In order to be eligible for the Best Student Paper award, at least one author must be a student.

Submission Instructions

The submitted papers should be written in English and formatted according to the Springer LNCS style. Regular papers must be original papers which are not being submitted simultaneously for publication elsewhere. These papers should not exceed 12 pages plus bibliography.

Discussion papers report results already published or accepted for the publication in international conferences, and should not exceed 8 pages plus bibliography.
