============== KI 2017: Call for Papers, Workshops & Tutorials 

40th German Conference on Artificial Intelligence
September 25-29, 2017
Dortmund, Germany



KI 2017 is the 40th edition of the German Conference on Artificial 
Intelligence organized by the Fachbereich Künstliche Intelligenz der 
Gesellschaft für Informatik. KI traditionally brings together academic 
and industrial researchers from all areas of AI, providing an ideal 
place for exchanging news and research results of intelligent system 
technology. The technical program of KI 2017 will comprise paper and 
poster presentations and a variety of workshops and tutorials.

KI 2017 will take place in Dortmund, Germany, September 25th-29th, 2017, 
and is a premier forum for exchanging news and research results on 
theory and applications of intelligent system technology.

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

- Agent-based and multi-agent systems
- AI applications and innovations
- Belief change
- Cognitive modelling, AI and psychology
- Commonsense reasoning
- Computer vision
- Constraint satisfaction, search, and optimization
- Diagnosis and configuration
- Evolutionary computation
- Game playing and interactive entertainment
- Information retrieval, integration, and extraction
- Knowledge engineering and ontologies
- Knowledge representation and reasoning
- Knowledge discovery and data mining
- Machine learning
- Multidisciplinary AI
- Natural language processing
- Nonmonotonic reasoning and default logics
- Philosophical foundations of AI
- Planning and scheduling
- Recommender systems
- 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.

======== Workshops and Tutorials ========
Together with the main conference, we plan to organize a small number of 
high-quality workshops and tutorials. We especially encourage events 
organized by AI Special Interest Groups (GI-Fachgruppen), events that 
bring together researchers from different disciplines, and events that 
highlight emerging topics of AI research. Tutorials should target a wide 
audience, including graduate students as well as experienced 
researchers, and practitioners.

For details on submitting workshop and tutorial proposals, please see 
the KI2017 webpage (http://ki2017.tu-dortmund.de).

======== Paper Submission ========
We invite papers, which have to be in English and formatted according to 
the Springer LNCS style, in the following two categories

* 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 
analysed; position or challenge papers; etc. Technical communication 
submissions are especially invited for software demonstration or PhD 
work in progress.

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 2017 
proceedings will be published by Springer as a volume of the LNAI 
(Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence) series.
