(Apologies for cross-posting)

the 22nd European Conference on Artificial Intelligence

Under the general theme of "AI for human values", ECAI 2016  
(www.ecai2016.org) will be held in the city of The Hague, in sight the  
Peace Palace, seat of the International Court of Justice. This location is  
highly appropriate to the conference theme. The conference dates are 29  
August - 2 September 2016, with the workshops taking place on 29-30 August.

The organising committee welcomes proposals for workshops by all members of  
the international AI community. There is no restriction regarding topics,  
as long as there is a clear relevance to ECAI. We encourage workshops in  
the traditional AI topics as Planning, Reasoning, Learning, Multi-Agent  
Systems etc., but also multidisciplinary topics as learning in automated  
software, AI for Computational Sustainability, AI in the serve of cyber  
security and so on.

Most workshops will follow the classical format of presentations of  
peer-reviewed papers followed by discussion, but other formats (e.g., AI  
competitions) and entirely new ideas are also welcome. Whatever the format,  
all workshops should be interactive events and ample time should be  
allocated to discussion. The typical duration for a workshop is one full  
day, but two-day or shorter workshops can also be accommodated.

If you are considering to propose a workshop or if you have any question,  
please do not hesitate to get in touch with the ECAI-2016 Workshop Chair  
Meir Kalech (workshop-chair at ecai2016.org).
