Submission Guidelines

Submissions are invited in three categories:

(A) research papers reporting original theoretical research or applications, with length up to 15 pages excluding references,

(B) system descriptions, with length up to 9 pages 10 pages excluding references,

(C) position papers and brief reports on work in progress, with length up to 9 pages 10 pages excluding references.

Note again: The above page limits do not include the references. Moreover, any additional material can be added in a clearly marked appendix, which will be read at the discretion of the committee and must be removed for the camera-ready version.

For category A submissions, the reported results must be original and not submitted for publication elsewhere. For category B submissions, a working implementation must be accessible via the internet. Authors are encouraged to publish the implementation under an open source license. The aim of a system description is to make the system available in such a way that people can use it, understand it, and build on it. Accepted papers in categories A and B will be published in the conference proceedings. Accepted papers in category C will be published as a Technical Report of the Middlesex University London.

Papers must be edited in LaTeX using the llncs style and must be submitted electronically as PDF files via the EasyChair system:

For all accepted papers at least one author is required to attend the conference and present the paper. A title and a short abstract of about 100 words must be submitted before the paper submission deadline. Formatting instructions and the LNCS style files can be obtained at

The conference proceedings will be published in the Springer series Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI/LNCS).
