CALL FOR PAPERS
IBERAMIA 2020 is the 17th edition of the Ibero‐American Conference on Artificial Intelligence, a leading symposium
where the Ibero‐American AI community comes together to share research results and experiences with researchers in
Artificial Intelligence from all over the world.
IBERAMIA 2020 will be held in Cartagena de Indias , Colombia, on November 18‐20, 2020, organized by the Universidad
de Cartagena (www.unicartagena.edu.co) with the support of the Artificial Intelligence chapter of the Sociedad
Colombiana de Computación .
The conference is also sponsored by the main Ibero‐American Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science societies.
IBERAMIA 2020 welcomes submissions on mainstream AI topics, as well as novel cross cutting work in related areas. We
encourage submissions of research that cuts across technical areas and/or integrated capabilities. as well as application
of AI techniques for social good, such as security, sustainability, health care, education, transportation, and commerce.
Main topics may include but are not limited to the following:
● Agent technology, Multi‐Agent Systems.
● Ambient intelligence, Intelligence of things.
● AI in Education, Intelligent Tutoring Systems
● AI for social good, Recommender Systems.
● Bio‐inspired AI.
● Computational Intelligence, Soft Computing.
● Cognitive Systems, Cognitive Modeling.
● Game Theory and Interactive Entertainment.
● Human Aspects in AI, Affective Computing.
● Intelligent Human‐computer interaction.
● Knowledge Engineering, Knowledge Representation. Reasoning, Argumentation.
● Planning and Scheduling, Heuristics and Metaheuristics.
● Robotics, Computer vision.
● Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Big Data. Data Mining. Pattern recognition.
● Natural Language Processing. Conversational AI.
● Social impact of AI, Ethics and AI, Sustainability and AI, Trustworthy and Explainable AI
Papers must be written in English and will be reviewed on the basis of their relevance, significance of the contribution,
originality, technical soundness, quality and clarity. As in previous conferences, accepted papers will be published in the
series "Advances in Artificial Intelligence" of Springer‐Verlag LNAI.
Submitted papers must not exceed 12 pages, including all tables, figures, and references and are required to be
formatted in the Springer LNCS format (see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html). Submissions over twelve
pages will be rejected without review.
Papers must be submitted through the EasyChair Conference System at :
The conference is organized in several areas. Authors should submit their paper to the most appropriate area for their work.
All submissions will go through a peer review process, by independent PC members reviewing each submission.
Reviewing will be blind, so author names and affiliations must be omitted from the submission, using instead the unique
tracking number assigned by the conference system at the time of submission. In addition, self‐references in the text,
like “in [Garcia 2015], we prove that” should be avoided, using instead references such as “[Garcia 2004] has proved
that”. Submissions will be evaluated considering fitness to the conference, novelty of problem, novelty of approach,
engagement with literature, quality of evaluation, scope and promise for social impact.
Conference Registration and Attendance
At least one author is required to register for the conference and be available to present the paper, and we encourage
all authors to attend if possible.
Best paper Award
A “Best Paper Award” will be given to the authors of the best paper, as judged by the Best Paper Award Selection
Committee. There will also be the “Best Paper Presentation Award” selected from the audience feedback collected
during the IBERAMIA 2020.
A select set of top‐rated papers may be nominated for fast track review at participating journals, including Knowledgebased
System Journal and AI Communications.
Thesis and Dissertation contest
IBERAMIA 2020 starts a program to recognize the best thesis and the best dissertation in the area of AI finished in
2018, 2019 ou 2020.
Submissions should be papers up to 12 pages containing the summary of the research in the LNCS format
Paper submission deadline: May 18th, 2020
Notification: July 13th, 2020
Camera ready papers: August 3rd, 2020
