39th German Conference on Artificial Intelligence / ÖGAI-Tagung 2016
September 26-30, 2016
KI 2016 is the 39th edition of the German Conference on Artificial Intelligence organized by Fachbereich Künstliche Intelligenz der Gesellschaft für Informatik in conjunction with Österreichische Gesellschaft für Artificial Intelligence. 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 2016 will comprise paper and poster presentations and a variety of workshops and tutorials. For the second time KI will take place in Austria. This time KI 2016 will be in Klagenfurt from September 26th-30th, 2016. KI 2016 is co-located with Informatik 2016 (Annual Conference of the German Informatics Society) and MATES 2016 (The 14th German Conference on Multi-Agent System Technologies).
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
- Cognitive modelling
- Commonsense reasoning
- Computer vision
- Diagnosis and configuration
- Constraint satisfaction, search, and optimization
- Evolutionary computation
- Game playing and interactive entertainment
- Information retrieval, integration, and extraction
- Knowledge acquisition and ontologies
- Knowledge representation and reasoning
- Machine learning and data mining
- Multidisciplinary AI
- Natural language processing
- Planning and scheduling
- Recommender systems
- 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.
======== Important Dates ========
Workshop submission: Feb 20, 2016
Workshop notification: Feb 24, 2016
Full/Short Paper submission: May 13, 2016
Acceptance notification: June 27, 2016
Final version due: July 8, 2016
KI Workshops and Conference: September 26-30, 2016
======== Workshops, Tutorials, Doctoral Consortium ========
Together with the main conference, we plan to organize a small number of high-quality workshops. We especially encourage workshops organized by AI Special Interest Groups (GI-Fachgruppen), workshops that bring together researchers from different disciplines, and workshops that highlight emerging topics of AI research.
The technical program of KI 2016 is also complemented by a doctoral consortium that invites participation by PhD students at any stage and from any subject area within AI.
For details on submitting workshop proposals and for applying to the doctoral consortium, please see the KI2016 webpage (http://ki2016.org).
======== 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 2016 proceedings will be published by Springer as a volume of the LNAI (Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence) series.
