  KI 2015 - The 38th German Conference on Artificial Intelligence
               Dresden, September 21--25, 2015



KI 2015 is the 38th edition of the German Conference on Artificial
Intelligence, which traditionally brings together academic and
industrial researchers from all areas of AI, providing a premier
forum for exchanging news and research results on theory and
applications of intelligent system technology. The technical program
of KI 2015 will comprise paper and poster presentations and a
variety of workshops and tutorials.  KI 2015 will be co-located with
an international summer school organized by the International Center
of Computational Logic. The conference invites original research
papers from all areas of AI, its foundations, its algorithms, its
history and its applications. KI 2015 also solicits technical
communications and papers of senior researchers.

You are invited to submit original research and application papers
on all aspects of AI research, including but not limited to the

- Agent-based and multiagent systems
- AI applications and innovations
- Cognitive modeling
- Commonsense reasoning
- Computer vision
- Constraint satisfaction, search, and optimization
- Evolutionary computation
- Game playing and interactive entertainment
- Information retrieval, integration, and extraction
- Knowledge acquisition and ontologies
- Knowledge representation and reasoning
- Machine learning and data mining
- Multidisciplinary AI
- Natural language processing
- Planning and scheduling
- Robotics
- Uncertainty in AI
- Web and information systems

We especially welcome application papers that provide novel insights
on the interplay of AI and the real world, as well as papers that
bring useful computational technologies from other areas of computer
science into AI.

======== Important Dates ========

Full/Short Paper submission: May 1, 2015
Acceptance notification: June 22, 2015
Final version due: July 3, 2015
KI Workshops and Conference: September 21-25, 2015

======== Keynote Speakers ========

* Molham Aref, LogicBlox
* Ross D. King, University of Manchester
* Francesca Rossi, University of Padova

======== Workshops, Tutorials, Doctoral Consortium ========

Together with the main conference, we organize a number of
high-quality workshops (see www.tu-dresden.de/inf/ki2015 for more

* AI challenges for soccer-playing humanoid robots
* 8th Workshop on Emotion and Computing - current research and
   future impact
* Formal and Cognitive Reasoning
   (5th Workshop on Dynamics of Knowledge and Belief (DKB-2015)
    and 4th Workshop KI & Kognition (KIK-2015))
* 1st Workshop on High-Level Declarative Stream Processing
   (Hidest '15)
* Workshop on Neural-Cognitive Integration (NCI @ KI 2015)
* 29. Workshop Planen/ Scheduling und Konfigurieren/ Entwerfen
   (PuK 2015)
* Privacy and Inference (PrInf)
* Qualitative Spatial and Temporal Reasoning: Computational Complexity
   and Algorithms
* Role Semantics @ KI 2015: The concept of roles in reasoning and
   semantic technologies
* 29th Workshop on (Constraint) Logic Programming (WLP 2015)

The technical program of KI 2015 is also complemented by a doctoral
consortium that invites participation by PhD students at any stage
and from any subject area within AI.

For details on submitting workshop proposals and for applying to the
doctoral consortium, please see the KI 2015 web page.

======== Submission ========

We invite papers, which have to be in English and formatted
according to the Springer LNCS style, in the following three

* Full technical papers (12 pages max., excluding references) are
expected to report on new research that makes a substantial technical
contribution to the field. Additional details may be included in an
appendix, which, however, will be read at the discretion of the PC.

* Technical communications (6 pages max., excluding references) can
report on research in progress, research already published
elsewhere, or other issues of interest to the AI community. Examples
of work suitable for technical communication paper submissions
include: novel ideas whose scope is not large enough for a full
paper; important implementation techniques; novel interesting
benchmark problems; short experimental studies; interesting
applications that are not yet completely solved or analyzed;
position or challenge papers; etc. Technical communication
submissions are especially invited for software demonstrations or
PhD work in progress.

* Senior track papers (12 pages max., excluding references) should be
written by a distinguished member of the AI community and cover a
subject of general interest to the AI community. Examples of
submissions eligible for this track include state-of-the-art reports
about a subfield of AI, position papers on possible future
developments in AI or its subfields, or papers on the interplay of
AI research and society.

Submission will be through the EasyChair conference management
system :


All papers will be subject to blind peer review based on the
standard criteria of relevance, significance of results, originality
of ideas, soundness, and quality of the presentation. All accepted
papers will be published in the main conference proceedings, and
will be presented at the conference. At least one author of each
accepted paper must register for the conference and present the
contribution. The KI 2015 proceedings will be published by Springer
as a volume of the LNAI (Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence)
