ECAI 2000 FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS
- -----------------------------

 The ECAI 2000 Program Committee invites submission of papers 
 for the technical program of the 14th biennial European Confe-
 rence on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI 2000). Submissions are 
 invited on substantial, original and previously unpublished re-
 search in all fields of Artificial Intelligence.


 FORMATTING GUIDELINES

 It is highly recommended to submit papers using the final 
 camera-ready formatting style. Submissions must not exceed five 
 pages in camera-ready format. Submissions of unformatted papers 
 are limited to 6000 words including footnotes, figure captions, 
 tables, appendices, and bibliography. Each half-page of figures 
 will be counted as 600 words. (Please note that for some papers 
 five camera-ready pages may be considerably less than 6000 words 
 in practice.) Overlength submissions will be rejected without re-
 view. Authors submitting unformatted papers must include a word 
 count on their paper. Latex style files to support formatting of
 submissions will be available. Final versions of accepted papers 
 will be required to conform strictly to the formatting require-
 ments specified in the ECAI 2000 style guide (see ECAI homepage).
 Each accepted paper will be allocated five pages in the procee-
 dings.


 SUBMISSION PROCEDURE

 Submission is a two-stage process. Authors are asked to submit 
 a brief summary of their paper by 2 February 2000. The strongly 
 preferred submission method is to use the web-based summary sub-
 mission form. Submitted summaries will be assigned a unique trak-
 king number that should be marked on the full paper submission. 
 Authors without access to the web should send a summary including 
 the title, authors, contact address and abstract for the paper 
 (maximum 200 words), plus keywords drawn from the above list 
 (plus other keywords if appropriate) to the ECAI 2000 Program 
 Chair (by email or postal mail). The summary information and the 
 tracking number should also be included with the paper itself, on
 a separate sheet of paper. (Authors not able to use the web-based 
 submission form may omit the tracking number).

 Submission of the paper is in hard copy form only, fax or elec-
 tronic submissions will not be accepted. Six copies of the paper 
 (each including the summary sheet) should be sent by postal mail 
 or courier service to the ECAI 2000 Program Chair at the address 
 below. The deadline for receipt of papers is 4 February 2000. Pa-
 pers received after this date will not be reviewed. 

 Notification of receipt of full papers will be mailed to the 
 corresponding author soon after receipt.

 Multiple submissions policy
 
 ECAI 2000 will not accept any paper which at the time of sub-
 mission is under review for, or has already been published or 
 accepted for publication in a journal or another conference. 
 Authors are also expected not to submit their papers elsewhere 
 during the review period. These restrictions apply only to 
 journals and conferences and not to workshops or similar 
 specialized meetings with limited audiences. The title page 
 should include a statement that the paper is not under review or 
 accepted for publication in another conference or journal.


 REVIEW PROCEDURE

 All submissions will be subject to academic peer review by the
 ECAI 2000 Program Committee under the chairmanship of the 
 ECAI 2000 Program Chair. The ECAI 2000 Program Chair has final 
 authority over the review process and all decisions relating to 
 acceptance of papers. Review criteria include originality of 
 ideas, technical soudness, significance of results, and quality 
 of presentation. Notification of acceptance or rejection of sub-
 mitted papers will be mailed to the corresponding author by 
 28 April 2000.


 CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS

 The conference proceedings will be published and distributed by

 ready copies of papers, conforming to the ECAI 2000 formatting 
 guidelines, for inclusion in the proceedings. The deadline for 
 receipt of the camera-ready copy is 29 May 2000. Note that at 
 least one author of each accepted paper is required to attend the

PAIS 2000 FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS
- -----------------------------

 ECAI is pleased to announce its Prestigious Applications of 
 Intelligent Systems (PAIS 2000) sub-conference. The PAIS 2000 
 Program Committee invites authors to submit application papers.

 This event, associated with ECAI 2000 is created to specifi-
 cally highlight significant successful applications of Intelli-
 gent Systems (IS) technology. The purpose of the event is to pro-
 vide a forum for industry practitioners to learn about the power
 and applicability of selected IS techniques and share experience
 on the applicability, development and deployment of intelligent 
 systems in industry. This will be the largest showcase in Europe
 of real application using Intelligent Systems technology and the 
 ideal place to meet with those working to make successful 
 IS-based applications. 

 The Prestigious Applications of Intelligent Systems event will 
 present papers describing successful applications of Intelligent 
 Systems. Papers are selected to highlight critical areas of 
 success (and failure) and to present the benefits and lessons of 
 value to other developers. Submitted papers should make these 
 points clear. Papers should contain sections covering the 
 following information: 

 Descriptive Title and Abstract: These should convey clearly and 
 simply what the application is and its operational status. Do use 
 a title that makes it clear to a reader what the application is. 
 Don't use a clever, nor an obscure title. 

 Problem description: This should describe the problem that the 
 application solves, stating the objectives of the application and 
 explaining why an Intelligent Systems solution was required. If 
 other solutions were tried and failed, briefly outline these so-
 lutions with reasons for failure. 

 Application description: This should describe the solution to 
 the problem, with technical details on design and implementation. 
 It should describe any methodological approach used, detail the 
 key IS techniques used and if appropriate show how they were in-
 tegrated with conventional techniques. If commercial tools were 
 used they should be identified and reasons for their selection 
 given. 

 Application building: This should describe the size and skill 
 make-up of the project team, how long is took to build and the 
 costs involved. How it was/will be installed and introduced to 
 the users, with details of any training required. Describe any 
 plans for maintenance, in particular how the knowledge is expec-
 ted to change over time, and any features to aid the updating of 
 knowledge, etc. 

 Application benefits: Were potential benefits identified before
 building the application and have these been realised or are 
 likely to be realised? Has the application been in use and, if 
 so, how often has it been used and by how many users? What fur-
 ther long term benefits are expected? What future plans have been 
 made for its enhancement and use? 

 For PAIS 2000, a paper is acceptable even if it describes a 
 system which has not yet been installed, PROVIDED the application 
 is original AND the paper discusses the aspects and issues that 
 would help someone thinking of implementing a similar system in 
 their own organisation. It must concisely describe and scope the 
 problem tackled, saying why it is hard, and why IS techniques are 
 needed. It should also make clear the status of the system, and 
 should discuss such things as the project duration and effort, 
 how the project was justified and the expected benefits estima-
 ted, any problems encountered, the performance of the final 
 system and the reactions of users. The review procedure is diffe-
 rent and separate from the ECAI technical conference. Papers will
 be evaluated by experienced application developers, based on the 
 above criterion. Accepted papers will be published in the ECAI 
 proceedings.

 mera-ready formatting style. Submissions must not exceed five pa-
 ges in camera-ready format. Submissions of unformatted papers are
