Meeting Description:


Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a central topic in contemporary computer science
and informatics. The fruits of fifty years of AI research have benefited
application domains as disparate as industrial systems control and medicine. The
milestone events in AI research are increasingly regarded as mile stones in
human scientific and technological development: from the first chess playing
program to defeat a reigning world champion under standard chess tournament
rules, to the first robot to autonomously traverse 150 miles of rough terrain.
Techniques, results, and concepts developed under the banner of AI research have
proved to be of fundamental importance in areas such as economics, philosophy,
linguistics, psychology, and logical analysis. And of course, AI remains a topic
of perennial fascination in popular culture.

Initiated in 1974, the biennial European Conference on Artificial Intelligence
(ECAI) is Europe's premier archival venue for presenting scientific results in
AI. Organised by the European Coordinating Committee for AI (ECCAI), the ECAI
conference provides an opportunity for researchers to present and hear about the
very best research in contemporary AI. As well as a full programme of
technical papers, ECAI-2010 will include the Prestigious Applications of
Intelligent Systems conference (PAIS), the Starting AI Researcher
Symposium (STAIRS), and an extensive programme of workshops, tutorials, and
invited speakers. (Separate calls are issued for PAIS, STAIRS, and workshops.)

ECAI-2010 will be held in the beautiful and historic city of Lisbon, Portugal.
With excellent opportunities for sightseeing and gastronomy, Lisbon promises to
be a wonderful venue for a memorable conference.

16-20 August 2010
Lisbon, Portugal


Call for Papers:

-Cognitive Modeling & Interaction
-Constraints & Search
-Knowledge Representation & Reasoning
-Machine Learning
-Model-Based Reasoning
-Natural Language Processing
-Perception & Sensing
-Planning & Scheduling

-Applications of AI

An extensive list of subtopics is soon going to be available at the conference

Important Dates:

Deadline for electronic abstracts: Monday, 15 February 2010

Paper submission deadline: Monday, 22 February 2010

Author response period: 15-16 April 2010

Notification of acceptance/rejection: Friday, 30 April 2010

Conference: 16-20 August 2010

Submission Information:

Submissions must not exceed six (6) pages in camera-ready format. Over-length
submissions will be rejected without review. Papers should be submitted using
the ECAI formatting style, to be available soon on the conference website (this
will be very close to previous ECAI styles). Each accepted paper will be
allocated six pages in the proceedings. ECAI-2010 also accepts posters. Each
poster will have two (2) pages allocated in the proceedings. Posters must follow
the same formatting guidelines as full papers. Authors may indicate whether they
want a submitted full paper to be considered as well as a submitted poster in
case of non-acceptance of the full paper.

All submissions will be subject to peer review by the ECAI-2010 Programme
Committee, and evaluated on the basis of: relevance; significance of
contribution; technical quality; scholarship; and quality of presentation.

Reviewing for ECAI-2010 will be blind: reviewers will not be presented with the
identity of paper authors. To allow for blind review, author names in a
submitted paper or poster should be replaced by the unique tracking number
assigned by the conference website at the submission of an electronic abstract.
Authors should avoid writing anything that makes their identity obvious in the
text. Submissions should be original, and- in particular should not previously
have been formally published. (As a rule of thumb, any publication venue with an
ISBN or ISSN number counts as a formal publication.) Submissions should not be
submitted elsewhere during the ECAI-2010 review 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. The author feedback phase will last two days.

The proceedings of the ECAI conference, together with those of its associated
symposia, PAIS and STAIRS (calls to appear soon), will be published and
distributed by IOS Press as a book and as a CD-ROM. The authors will be
responsible for producing camera-ready copies of papers, conforming to the
ECAI-2010 formatting guidelines for inclusion in the proceedings. At least one
author of each accepted paper or poster is required to attend the conference to
present the contribution.
