Call For Papers
Call for Papers CAEPIA'13
XV Conference of the Spanish Association for Artificial Intelligence (CAEPIA)
September 17-20, 2013
The Conference of the Spanish Association for Artificial Intelligence (CAEPIA) is a biennial forum open to worldwide researchers to present and discuss their last scientific and technological advances in Artificial Intelligence. The 15th edition, CAEPIA'13, will be held in Madrid, Spain, from the 17th to the 20th September, 2013, within the Spanish Congress on Informatics (CEDI 2013).
As in previous editions, the objectives are: to facilitate the dissemination of new ideas and experiences, to strengthen the links among the different research groups involved, to promote knowledge transfer between recent researchers and consolidated groups, and to help spread new developments to society.
To achieve the proposed objectives, authors are requested to send original unpublished works, which describe relevant research about topics related to Artificial Intelligence from all points of view: formal, methodological, technical or applied. Works can be submitted in Spanish or English in LNCS format (Springer).
CAEPIA'13 will use a double blind-review process. The authors will remove their names from the submitted papers and must take responsibility for the originality of the work and send it in the proper format.
CAEPIA will also be open to pre-doctoral work, and there will be a special call for this type of work through the Doctoral Consortium. This event is specially designed for the interaction between PhD students and senior researchers.
Besides original and pre-doctoral papers, this edition of CAEPIA will include, for the first time, a special session on outstanding papers (key works) already published in journals or forums of renowned reputation.
Finally, various independent conferences will take place under the scope of CAEPIA. Such conferences (ASMas, FINO, LFSCI, MAEB, SICO, TAMIDA) will keep their own program committee and will distribute their respective CFPs.
TYPES OF CONTRIBUTIONS
- CAEPIA papers (Main track): Submitted technical papers must be no longer than 10 pages and must be formatted according to LNCS guidelines. The submitted paper will represent original research, with solid, well-founded or demonstrable results on any of the conference topics. Accepted papers will be assigned a 15- or 20-minutes slot for oral presentation at the conference.
- Pre-doctoral papers: We encourage the submissions of preliminary works from PhD students. These works will be presented in special sessions at the conference. The objective is to foster a fruitful debate between the candidate and the audience. The length of these papers should not exceed 4 pages and will be orally presented during 15 minutes. The authors of accepted papers as pre-doctoral work will enjoy special benefits to attend the conference.
- Already published outstanding papers (Key works): Recent works published in journals or forums of renowned reputation, during the period 2011-2013. The aim is to spread them among a wide audience from the AI community, giving the members of the community a chance to be exposed to works with which they are not familiarized and to foster interdisciplinarity. Papers must be submitted in a one-page format, with a clear reference to the previous published paper. Accepted contributions will be assigned a 15-minutes slot in a joint session of all the conferences conforming this edition of CAEPIA.

CAEPIA'13 will offer plenary talks given by outstanding researchers in different areas. They will be scheduled in a joint session with all the conferences participating in the CAEPIA multiconference.
Submission of papers to CAEPIA'13 requires a previous registration in:
Accepted papers will be published in the two volumes of CAEPIA proceedings that will be given to all CAEPIA attendees. The two volumes will be as follows:
- One volume published by Springer-Verlag in its Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series (LNAI), which will contain a selection of the best papers accepted by the Program Committee. In order to be included in this volume papers should be submitted in English.
- One volume published by the Spanish Association for Artificial Intelligence that will contain all the accepted CAEPIA papers not included in the previous volume, abstracts of keynote works and Doctoral Consortium papers. This volume will be included in the CEDI 2013 proceedings and will be edited exclusively in USB pen drive format.
Authors of the papers accepted for the LNAI volume will be invited to prepare extended versions for submission to special issues of JCR ranked international journals.
AEPIA will acknowledge the dedication of the participants in CAEPIA'13 with three awards: best CAEPIA (main track) paper, best pre-doctoral work and best reviewer.
