All paper submissions (except for NECTAR papers) will be handled electronically via the EasyChair Conference management system at the following address:
Submission of NECTAR papers is possible via email to the Program Committee Chairs until 28/2/2016 (note that the deadline for original papers does not apply to NECTAR ones). The papers that are eligible for presentation in the NECTAR session are those that were presented (or accepted for presentation) in distinguished AI conferences from 1/1/2014 until the deadline for NECTAR paper submission. In the email please include details concerning the conference where the paper was originally presented.
The proceedings of the conference (except for the NECTAR session) will be published by ACM Digital Library within its International Conference Proceedings Series. Moreover, extended versions of selected best papers will be considered for possible publication in a special issue of an AI Journal.
The submitted papers will be peer-reviewed on the basis of technical quality, relevance to AI, originality, significance, and clarity. Note that submitted papers (except for NECTAR papers) should have neither been published nor submitted for publication elsewhere.
In order to prepare their manuscripts, authors should follow the ACM SIG Proceedings guidelines, available at: http://www.acm.org/publications/article-templates/proceedings-template.html/
Note that SETN 2016 accepts original submissions of two types: a) full papers (5-10 pages) and b) short papers (2-4 pages). All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings.
Submitting a paper to the conference means that in case of acceptance, at least one author is required to fully register for the conference in order for the paper to be included in the proceedings. Moreover, it is expected that at least one author will attend the conference to present the paper.
