The biennial European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI) is 
Europe's premier venue for presenting scientific results in AI. Under 
the general theme "Paving the way towards Human-Centric AI", the 24th 
edition of ECAI will be held in Santiago de Compostela, a UNESCO's World 
Heritage City which is the destination of unique Routes that cross all 
Europe since the Middle Ages. The conference dates are 10-12 June 2020, 
with the workshops taking place on 8-9 June. Save these dates!

The Program Committee of the 24th European Conference on Artificial 
Intelligence (ECAI 2020) invites the submission of papers for the 
technical programme of the Conference. High-quality original submissions 
are welcome from research results and applications of all areas of AI 
including the following ones:

- Agent-based and Multi-agent Systems (MAS)
- Computational Intelligence (CI)
- Constraints and Satisfiability (CS)
- Games and Virtual Environments (GAME)
- Heuristic Search (HEU)
- Human Aspects in AI (HAI)
- Information Retrieval and Filtering (IRF)
- Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KRR)
- Machine Learning (ML)
- Multidisciplinary Topics and Applications (MULT)
- Natural Language Processing (NLP)
- Planning and Scheduling (PLAN)
- Robotics (ROB)
- Safe, Explainable, and Trustworthy AI (XAI)
- Semantic Technologies (SEM)
- Uncertainty in AI (UAI)
- Vision (VIS)

Two types of contributions are admitted in ECAI2020:
- Scientific papers, which report novel research in AI and must not 
exceed seven pages plus one of only references
- Highlight papers, which are two pages abstracts (including references) 
that highlight your favorite recent technical work (possibly appeared 
elsewhere), position, or open problems with clear and concise 
formulations of current challenges. The aim of these papers is 
highlighting important results to a wide audience.

All submissions will be subject to peer review by the ECAI 2020 
Programme Committee. Scientific papers will be evaluated based on 
relevance, significance of contribution, impact, technical quality, 
scholarship and quality of presentation. During the rebuttal 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 made. Highlight will be reviewed following 
guidelines specifically tailored to their special nature.

The Full Call for Papers is available at 


In addition to its full programme of technical papers, ECAI2020 will 
feature many AI-related events for researchers, students and all 
attendants who are interested on contemporary AI. Separate calls have 
been issued for:

- Workshop proposals, CFP available at 
- Tutorial proposals, CFP available at 
- PAIS 2020, the Prestigious Applications of Intelligent Systems 
conference, CFP available at http://ecai2020.eu/call-for-papers/pais/
- STAIRS 2020, the Starting AI Researcher Symposium, CFP available at 

In addition, other AI-related events will be announced, specially 
addressing the role of AI in Europe (and vice-versa) with special focus 
on the Conference general theme. Among these, The Frontiers in AI track 
sessions, the Lab To Market event, the Women in AI Breakfast and the EU 
Challenges forum.

Furthermore, ECAI2020 will have a special focus on Starting Researchers, 
who will be able to participate in an specific program including the 
Doctoral Consortium, the Three Minutes Thesis Competition, the Lunch 
with an EurAI Fellow and the Job Fair.

The Conference is hosted by the European Association for Artificial 
Intelligence (EurAI) and the Spanish AI Society (AEPIA).
ECAI 2020 is organized by the Intelligent Systems Group (GSI) and the 
Research Centre in Intelligent Technologies (CiTIUS), University of 
Santiago de Compostela.


ECAI 2020 has coordinated with AAAI 2020, IJCAI 2020, AAMAS 2020 and 
ICAPS 2020 for deadlines and synergies. In particular, ECAI 2020 and 
ICAPS 2020 have an agreement so that in specific cases the ECAI 2020 PC 
may decide to transfer a paper on Planning and Scheduling to ICAPS 2020 
(provided that the permission to do so has been given by the authors in 
the submission form), and viceversa.
