Submission Instructions

Submitted papers must be original, and not submitted concurrently to a journal or another conference. Double-blind reviewing will be provided, so submitted papers must use fake author names and affiliations. Papers must use the latest AAAI Press Word template or LaTeX macro package, and must be submitted as PDF through the EasyChair conference system. (N.B. Do not use a fake name for your EasyChair login; your EasyChair account information is hidden from reviewers.)

FLAIRS will not accept any paper which, at the time of submission, is under review for or has already been published or accepted for publication in a journal or another conference. Authors are also required not to submit their papers elsewhere during FLAIRS's review period. These restrictions apply only to journals and conferences, not to workshops and similar specialized presentations with a limited audience and without archival proceedings. Authors will be required to confirm that their submissions conform to these requirements at the time of submission.

Papers and Abstracts
There are three kinds of submissions: full papers (up to 6 pages), short papers (up to 4 pages), and poster abstracts (up to 250 words). Acceptance as a full paper entails a 20 minute presentation during a regular session, while short papers and abstracts will be required to participate in the poster session. Rejected full papers may still be accepted as short papers or poster abstracts. All posters will be presented according to space and time availability. Authors may submit up to two full papers as first author, and a maximum of one poster as full author (whether short paper or poster abstract). Author names may be changed or re-ordered after reviewing; however, for budgeting reasons, registration fees will be based on the details at the time of submission and review.

Tutorials and Workshops
Tutorials allow conference goers to gain new insights, knowledge, and skills from a broad range of topics in the field of AI. Submissions for tutorials must cover a well-established and recognized topic in AI, and should be delivered by someone with considerable expertise and experience. Tutorials should be presented at a level that will make the material accessible to a postgraduate student with a first degree in a field related to AI. We strongly encourage an interactive delivery format for tutorials. Tutorial should be designed for sessions of 75 minutes or 100 minutes; (longer sessions can be arranged if sufficient notice is given).

Workshops give an opportunity for in-depth discussion on a specific topic relevant to the field of AI. Workshops can concentrate on emerging research or cross-disciplinary topics; they can also focus on application issues and research methods. Workshop organizers are responsible for all materials and for selecting and inviting any additional speakers. Workshops should be designed for sessions of 75 minutes or 100 minutes; (longer sessions can be arranged if notice warning is given).

The proceedings of FLAIRS-28 will be published by the AAAI. Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign a form transferring copyright of their contribution to AAAI. Authors are expected to make a reasonable effort to address reviewers’ comments prior to the submission of the camera ready paper. Where such expectations have been flouted, actions may be taken to preserve the quality of the conference and the expectations of conference goers. An author of each accepted paper is required to register, attend, and present the paper at FLAIRS. It is a requirement of FLAIRS that there will be at least one early regular author registration per paper.
