Together with the main conference, we aim at organizing a small number 
of high-quality workshops suitable for a large percentage of conference 
participants, including graduate students as well as experienced 
researchers and practitioners.

Workshops will be free of charge for conference participants and will be 
held at the first day of the conference. Both full-day (6 hours) and 
half-day (3 hours) workshops are of interest. They should preferably be 
given in English.
The KI 2012 conference organizers will provide logistic support and 
meeting places for the workshops as well as determine the dates and 
times of the workshops.
Working and teaching material will be printed by the conference 
organization. Volumes are limited to a total of 200 pages.

Proposals should be prepared in PDF, or plain ASCII (two pages) and sent 
by email to the KI 2012 Workshop Chair. Each workshop proposal should

discuss the relevance of the suggested topic and its interest to the 
general AI community and the KI 2012 audience.

workshop organizer(s). This can be a single person or a group of
