The 7th European Starting AI Researcher Symposium (STAIRS-2014) 
will be held as a satellite event of the 21st European 
Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI-2014) in Prague in 
August 2014. STAIRS is aimed at young researchers in Europe and 
beyond, particularly PhD students, but also advanced Master’s 
students and postdoctoral researchers holding a PhD for less 
than one year at the time of the paper submission deadline. 
STAIRS offers opportunities to gain experience with submitting 
to and presenting at international events with a broad 
scientific scope.

Accepted papers will be presented either orally or in a poster 
session. Both types of accepted papers will be collected in the 
symposium proceedings, published by IOS Press. 

STAIRS will feature invited talks by:
* Francesca Rossi (University of Padova, Italy)
* Michael Wooldridge (University of Oxford, UK)


We welcome submissions in all areas of AI, ranging from 
foundations to applications. Topics of interest include, 
amongst others: 

* autonomous agents and multiagent systems
* constraints, satisfiability, and search
* knowledge representation, reasoning, and logic
* machine learning and data mining
* natural language processing
* planning and scheduling
* robotics, sensing, and vision
* uncertainty in AI
* web and knowledge-based information systems
* multidisciplinary topics


* Submission deadline: 15 May 2014
* Notification of acceptance/rejection: 10 June 2014
* Camera-ready copy due: 15 June 2014
