Call For Papers


KI2018 - The 41st German Conference on Artificial Intelligence

September 24-28th, 2018, Berlin, Germany

co-located with the INFORMATIK 2018 conference


The German conference series on Artificial Intelligence (KI) provides an international and interdisciplinary forum for the presentation and discussion of latest results of basic and applied research on AI for innovative intelligent systems in industry and business, as well as for our private and social life. The series is supported by the AI chapter of the German Society for Informatics.

The 41st edition (KI 2018) offers a competitive set of tutorials, workshops, three invited keynotes by distinguished experts of AI (including one joint keynote on Ethics for AI), a doctoral consortium, special topical sessions, and issues a Best Paper Award.

The proceedings of KI 2018 are published by Springer in its Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) series.


Abstract Submission: April 30th, 2018
Full/Short Paper Submission: May 7th, 2018
Notification of Acceptance: June 15th, 2018
Final Version Due: July 2nd, 2018
Workshop, Tutorials, and Doctoral Consortium: are announced in separate calls


You are invited to submit original research and application papers on all aspects of AI research, including but not limited to the following:

* Agent-based and multi-agent systems
* AI applications and innovations
* Belief change
* Cognitive modelling, AI and psychology
* Commonsense reasoning
* Computer vision
* Constraint satisfaction, search, and optimization
* Diagnosis and configuration
* Evolutionary computation
* Game playing and interactive entertainment
* Information retrieval, integration, and extraction
* Knowledge engineering and ontologies
* Knowledge representation and reasoning
* Knowledge discovery and data mining
* Machine learning
* Multidisciplinary AI
* Natural language processing
* Nonmonotonic reasoning and default logics
* Philosophical foundations of AI
* Planning and scheduling
* Recommender systems
* Robotics
* Uncertainty in AI
* Web and information systems

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


We invite papers, which have to be in English and formatted according to the Springer LNCS style, in the following two categories

Full technical papers (12 pages max., excluding references) are expected to report on new research that makes a substantial technical contribution to the field. Additional details may be included in an appendix, which, however, will be read at the discretion of the PC.
Technical communications (6 pages max., excluding references) can report on research in progress or other issues of interest to the AI community. Examples of work suitable for technical communication paper submissions include novel ideas 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 analysed; position or challenge papers. Technical communication submissions are especially invited for software demonstration or PhD work in progress.
Submission will be through the EasyChair conference management system. All papers will be subject to blind peer review based on the standard criteria of relevance, the significance of results, originality of ideas, soundness, and quality of the presentation. If you have used the EasyChair conference management system before, you can use the same username and password. If this is your first time using EasyChair, you will need to register for an account by clicking ‘I have no EasyChair account’ button. Upon completion of registration, you will get a notification email from the system and you are ready for submitting your paper. You can upload and re-upload the paper to the system by the submission due date. Paper submission is electronic. To submit, please prepare a PDF file of your paper, a short abstract in plain text, and a list of two to five keywords. Submission is possible via the following link:

All accepted papers will be published in the main conference proceedings and will be presented at the conference. The KI 2018 proceedings will be published by Springer as a volume of the LNAI series (Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence). At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference and present the contribution.

The most outstanding submission will be recognized with a best paper award at the conference.
