PAIS'16 Call for papers

Conference on Prestigious Applications of Intelligent Systems - PAIS 2016,  
co-located with the European Conference on Artificial Intelligence, ECAI  
2016, www.ecai2016.org
31 August - 2 September 2016, The Hague, The Netherlands

The PAIS 2016 Programme Committee invites papers describing innovative  
applications of AI techniques to real-world systems and problems to be  
submitted to the Technical Programme of the 9th International Conference on  
Prestigious Applications of Intelligent Systems - a sub-conference of the  
22nd European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI 2016).

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a central topic in contemporary computer  
science and has enabled many ground-breaking developments which have  
significantly influenced our society. Techniques, concepts, and results  
developed under the banner of AI research have proven to be of fundamen-tal  
importance in areas such as medicine, biology, economics, philosophy,  
linguistics, psychology and engineering; also, have proven to have a  
significant impact on several real-world applications, such as e-commerce,  
tourism, e-government, national security, manufacturing and other economic  
sectors. Consequently, AI has become increasingly important in neighbouring  
fields and therefore remains a topic of  continuing fascination in our  

Papers highlighting all aspects of the application of intelligent systems  
technology are most welcome. Our aim is to provide a forum for academic and  
industrial researchers and practitioners to share experience and insight on  
the applicability, development and deployment of intelligent systems. PAIS  
is the largest showcase of real applications using AI technology in Europe  
and is the ideal place to meet developers of successful applications.

Under the general theme of "AI for human values", PAIS 2016/ECAI 2016 will  
be held in the city of The Hague, opposite the Peace Palace, seat of the  
International Court of Justice. The theme "AI for human values" is  
appropriate to this location, and highly relevant to the PAIS conference.

== Topics of Interest =
Papers on all novel and significant applications of intelligent systems are  
welcome. In particular, we encourage submissions on deployed (in production  
use for some time) and emerging applications (in field testing). Papers  
considering deployed applications should clearly highlight the benefits of  
the application, describe how AI methods are applied or enhanced, and  
finally present the contri-bution of AI methods to the overall success. For  
emerging applications authors must convincingly argue the benefits of the  
productive use.

The following list of AI application areas is indicative only:
* Active lifestyle and sport
* Assisted Living
* Aerospace
* Autonomous Vehicles
* Digital Humanities
* Energy
* Engineering
* Ecology
* Education
* Life Sciences and Medicine
* Marketing
* Mobile Computing and the Internet
* Multimedia
* Persuasive Technologies
* Production
* Process management
* Sales assistance
* Sensor Networks
* Smart Retail
* Smart Surroundings

== Important Dates =
  * Paper submission: 15th April 2016 (23:59:59 CET)
  * Author feedback: 29th-31st May 2016
  * Notification of acceptance/rejection: 7th June 2016

== Submission =
Both long and short papers can be submitted. While long papers should  
report on substantial results, short papers are intended for highly  
promising but possibly more preliminary work. Rejected long papers will be  
considered for the short paper track.

Formatting: Submitted papers must be formatted according to the  
camera-ready style for ECAI 2016. Long papers must not exceed six (6) pages  
and short papers must not exceed two (2) pages. Over-length submissions  
will be rejected without review. Details of the ECAI 2016 formatting style  
are available at: insert

Originality: Submissions must be original and in particular should not have  
been formally published, accepted for publication or under review. Also,  
submissions must not be submitted elsewhere during the PAIS 2016 reviewing  

Submitting and Reviewing: Submission and review of papers for PAIS 2016  
will be managed via the EasyChair system:  

All submissions will be subject to peer review by the PAIS 2016 Programme  
Committee and evaluated on the basis of relevance, significance of  
contribution, impact, technical quality, scholarship and quality of  
presentation. During the author feedback phase, the (primary) authors of  
submitted papers will be offered the opportunity to respond to the reviews  
for their papers before the final decision on acceptance or otherwise is  
Based on the recommendations made by the reviewers and a separate award  
committee, one of the accepted long papers will receive the "best PAIS  
paper award".
Proceedings and presentation
The proceedings of PAIS 2016 will be included in the proceedings of the  
full ECAI 2016 conference and will be published and distributed by IOS  
Press as an online open access book. The proceedings of recent ECAI  
conferences are freely available on the IOS website.

Authors of accepted papers must provide camera-ready versions in PDF  
format, conforming to the ECAI 2016 format, available at  
http://www.ecai2016.org/content/uploads/2015/10/ecai.tar.gz. Furthermore,  
at least one author of each accepted long or short paper must attend the  
conference to present the contribution. Long papers will be presented as  
talks; short papers will be presented in poster form.

All PAIS participants have to register for the ECAI conference.
