The EPIA Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a well-established European conference in the field of AI.
The 20th edition of the EPIA conference will take place online in 2021. As in previous editions, this international
conference is hosted with the patronage of the Portuguese Association for Artificial Intelligence (APPIA). The
purpose of this conference is to promote research in all areas of AI, covering both theoretical/foundational issues
and applications, and the scientific exchange among researchers, engineers and practitioners in related

Thematic Tracks
EPIA 2021 will feature the following thematic tracks covering a wide spectrum of AI topics:
AIoTA - Artificial Intelligence and IoT in Agriculture
AIL - Artificial Intelligence and Law
AIM - Artificial Intelligence in Medicine
AIPES - Artificial Intelligence in Power and Energy Systems
AITS - Artificial Intelligence in Transportation Systems

AmIA - Ambient Intelligence and Affective Environments
GAI- General AI
GeoAI - GeoSpatial Artificial Intelligence
IROBOT - Intelligent Robotics
KDBI - Knowledge Discovery and Business Intelligence
KRR - Knowledge Representation and Reasoning
MASTA - Multi-Agent Systems: Theory and Applications
TeMA - Text Mining and Applications

Submission and Reviewing
All papers should be submitted in PDF format through the EPIA 2021 EasyChair submission page. Prospective
authors should select the thematic track to which their paper is to be submitted. The papers should be prepared
according to the Springer LNCS format, with a maximum of 12 pages. Some thematic tracks (see each track
specific page) may accept short papers (max 6 pages). Submitted papers will be subject to a doubleblind
review process and will be peer-reviewed by at least three members of the respective track Program
Committee. It is the responsibility of the authors to remove names and affiliations from the submitted papers, and
to take reasonable care to assure anonymity during the review process.
Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or
for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their
papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper,
must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should
match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes
relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.

Proceedings and Presentations
Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings (a volume of Springer’s LNAI-Lecture Notes in
Artificial Intelligence), provided that at least one author is registered in EPIA 2021 by the early registration
deadline. EPIA 2021 proceedings are indexed in Thomson Reuters ISI Web of Science, Scopus, DBLP and
Google Scholar.
Each accepted paper must be presented by one of the authors in a track session.

The conference will grant the following award:
* Best Paper Award, for the best research paper presented at the conference sponsored by Springer
Only papers that have been submitted to a thematic track and presented at the conference will be eligible for this
