Call For Papers

KI 2011 is the 34th edition of the German Conference on Artificial Intelligence, which traditionally brings together academic and industrial researchers from all areas of AI. The technical programme of KI 2011 will comprise paper and poster presentations and a variety of workshops and tutorials.

KI 2011 will take place in Berlin, Germany, October 4-7, 2011, and is a premier forum for exchanging news and research results on theory and applications of intelligent system technology.

The applications of Artificial Intelligence are abundant and widespread. In fact, Artificial Intelligence has become such a mainstay in today's world that it is taken for granted by the majority of people who benefit from its efficiency. Therefore, the focus of the conference is on advances

"Towards a Smart World - Evolving Technologies in AI"

The conference invites original research papers from all areas of AI, its fundamentals, its algorithms, its history and its applications.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to

* Knowledge Acquisition, Representation, Reasoning and Ontologies,
* Combinatorial Search, Configuration, Design and Deduction,
* Natural Language Processing, Statistical NLP, Semantics,
* Planning and Scheduling; Spatial and Temporal Reasoning,
* Reasoning under Uncertainty, Probabilistic Inferences,
* Non-Monotonic Reasoning and Default Logics,
* Constraint Satisfaction, Processing and Programming,
* Embodied AI: Robotics, Vision and Perception,
* Intelligent Information Retrieval, Semantic Search, Semantic Web,
* Evolutionary and Neural Computation,
* Machine Learning, Computational Learning Theory and Data-Mining,
* Distributed Problem Solving and Multi-Agent Systems,
* Game Playing and Interactive Entertainment, AI for Graphics
* Game Theory and General Game Playing, Generalized Intelligence,

We especially welcome application papers providing novel insights on the interplay of AI and the real world, as well as papers that bring into AI useful computational technologies from other areas of computer science.
Submission Guidelines

Submitted papers, which have to be in English, must not exceed 12 pages in Springer LNCS style for full technical contributions and 4 pages for short contributions.

Full technical papers are expected to report on new research that makes a substantial technical contribution to the field and is placed in the context of existing work.

Short papers can report on new research or other issues of interest to the KI community. Examples of work suitable for short papers include: novel ideas that are not yet fully developed or 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 analyzed; position or challenge papers; etc.

Conference submission is electronic, in pdf or postscript format, available on

http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ki11

All papers will be reviewed based on the standard criteria of clarity, relevance, significance, originality, and soundness.

All accepted papers will be published in the main conference proceedings, and will be presented at the conference. The conference proceedings will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in AI (LNAI) series. At least one author per accepted paper must register for the conference and present the contribution.

Call for Workshop and Tutorial Proposals

KI 2011, the 34th German Conference on Artificial Intelligence, invites original research papers, workshop and tutorial proposals from all areas of AI, its fundamentals and its applications.

Together with the main conference, we aim at organizing a small number of high-quality workshops and tutorials suitable for a large percentage of conference participants, including graduate students as well as experienced researchers and practitioners.
General Information

Workshops and tutorials will be free of charge for conference participants and will be held at the first and at the second day of the conference. Both full-day (6 hours) and half-day (3 hours) workshops and tutorials are of interest. They should preferably be given in English.
The KI 2011 conference organizers will provide logistic support and meeting places for the workshops as well as determine the dates and times of the workshops.
Working and teaching material will be printed by the conference organization. Volumes are limited to a total of 200 pages.
How to Propose a Workshop

Proposals should be prepared in PDF, or plain ASCII (two pages) and sent by email to the KI 2011 Workshop and Tutorial Chairs. Each workshop proposal should provide the following information:

* Description of workshop topic and goal. This description should discuss the relevance of the suggested topic and its interest to the general AI community and the KI 2011 audience.
* Names and full addresses (including email and web address) of the workshop organizer(s). This can be a single person or a group of persons. Please indicate the primary contact person for KI 2011. Strong proposals include organizers who bring differing perspectives to the workshop topic and who are actively connected to the communities of potential participants.
* Names and affiliation of the members of the Program Committee.
* For which areas of AI do you expect to draw participants for your workshop and how many participants do you expect? How do you plan to invite participants for the workshop?
* A brief description of the workshop format regarding the mix of events such as paper presentation, invited talks, panels, demonstrations, and general discussion.
* Do you expect the workshop to be a full-day workshop or a half-day workshop?

Workshop organizers will be responsible for:

* Producing a call for participation. This call will be posted on the KI 2011 website.
* Organizers are responsible for additional publicity such as distributing the call to relevant newsgroups and electronic mailing lists, and especially to potential audiences from outside the KI conference community.
* Submissions of the workshop papers will be handled by the workshop organizers. Please make sure that you have a proper review process.
* Organizers are encouraged to maintain their own web site with updated information about the workshop.
* Coordinating the production of the workshop notes. The workshop organizer coordinates the paper collection, production and distribution of the working notes for the workshops.

How to Propose a Tutorial

Tutorials should give a comprehensive, in-depth perspective on innovative AI methods or technologies that have an obvious potential for research and/or application and are not covered by typical AI textbooks.

Do not hesitate to contact the Workshop and Tutorial Chairs if you are in doubt about the suitability of a particular topic for the purpose.

Proposal texts should be submitted by e-mail to the Workshop and Tutorial Chairs in pdf or plain text format. Annexes may be sent as .pdf, .ppt, or .doc format. Each tutorial proposal should provide the following information:

* Descriptions of the tutorial topic, goals, the intended audience, an outline of the contents,
* Necessary information to point out the importance, quality and community interest in the proposed tutorial.
* Brief CVs of the tutor(s), including their expertise and teaching experience in the field,
* The intended length of the tutorial (half- or full- day).

Proposers are encouraged to include excerpts of material from recent teaching about the proposed topic as an annex of their submission, if available.

Organizers are encouraged to support additional publicity such as distributing a tutorial abstract to relevant newsgroups and electronic mailing lists, and especially to potential audiences from outside the KI conference community. Organizers are encouraged to maintain their own web site with updated information about the tutorial.
