Call For Papers

The AAAI-MAKE 2023 symposium brings together researchers and practitioners from machine learning and knowledge engineering to reflect on how combining the two fields can contribute to tackling future societal, environmental, business, and fundamental AI challenges. It aims to provide datasets, ontologies, initial research findings, or implications about sociotechnical impacts to academia and practitioners as accessible challenges.

Topics and Format

• Machine Learning, Deep Learning, and Neural Networks
• Knowledge Engineering, Representation, and Reasoning
• AI Challenges with Datasets and/or Knowledge Graphs
• Hybrid (Human-Artificial) Intelligence and Human-in-the-Loop AI
• Commonsense and Explainable AI
• Hybrid AI and Neuro-symbolic AI
• Human-Centered AI, Dialogue Systems and Conversational AI

Since AAAI-MAKE is a dedicated symposium on combining machine learning and knowledge engineering, the contributions and challenges should address hybrid (artificial) intelligence settings. The symposium involves presentations of accepted papers, challenges, side-tutorial events from the industry, (panel) discussions, demonstrations, and plenary sessions. For more details, see the following webpage:


We solicit challenge/short and position/full papers that can include recent or ongoing research, challenges with datasets (if available), and surveys. Application scenarios and requirements from the industry would be highly beneficial and most welcome.

Given the time frame of this 2023 symposium, the single-blinded review will be based on extended abstracts of challenge, position, and full or short papers.

• Challenge papers (5 to 9 pages) should describe future societal, environmental, business, or scientific challenges requiring hybrid AI and possibly provide datasets or ontologies. In a follow-up event, solutions shall be proposed for these challenges.
• Position/full papers (10 to 16 pages) and short papers (5 to 9 pages) can include recent or ongoing research, business cases, application scenarios, and surveys.
• Industrial side-tutorial event or demonstration proposals (less than 5 pages) should have a focus on business or research related to the symposium topics, excluding product advertising.
• Discussion proposals (1 to 2 pages) should contain a description of the specific topic with a list of questions and a discussion moderator.

Please submit an extended abstract of your challenge, position, and full or short paper through EasyChair (

All submissions must reflect the formatting instructions ( Accepted papers shall be published on CEUR-WS, an established open-access proceedings website, whereas datasets should be uploaded to Zenodo.
