MICAI was characterized by Springer as premier conference in Artificial Intelligence. It is a high-level peer-reviewed international conference covering all areas of Artificial Intelligence, traditionally held in Mexico. The conference is organized by the Mexican Society for Artificial Intelligence (SMIA) and hosted by Instituto de Investigaciones en Matemáticas Aplicadas y en Sistemas (IIMAS) of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), on the facilities of the Autonomous University of Yucatan (UADY), Mérida, Yucatán. The scientific program includes keynote lectures, paper presentations, tutorials, panels, and workshops.
All previous editions of MICAI were published in Springer LNAI (WoS, Scopus, EI). At past MICAI events, extended versions of a considerable number of the LNAI papers were invited to special issues of journals, including ISI JCR-indexed journals; see for example a special issue on MICAI of Expert Systems with Applications. Recent MICAI events received over 300–400 submissions from over 40 countries each, with acceptance rate around 25% for the main session.
Publication: Papers accepted for long oral presentation will be published by Springer in a volume of the series Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI). Best papers awards will be granted to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. Special issues of journals are anticipated for best papers. Extended versions of selected papers are expected to be invited to special issues of journals, including ISI JCR-indexed journals. Traditionally at MICAI, the results of the SMIA Best Thesis in Artificial Intelligence Contest are announced.
