AIIA 2019

18th International Conference of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence

Call for papers

Topics of Interest

The conference covers broadly the many aspects of theoretical and applied Artificial Intelligence. A series of workshops dedicated to specific topics enhances the program. AIIA 2019 welcomes submissions covering all areas of AI, including (but not limited to) machine learning, search, planning, knowledge representation, reasoning, constraint satisfaction, natural language processing, robotics and perception, and multiagent systems. We encourage all types of high-quality contributions including theoretical, engineering and applied papers. We also encourage contributions on AI techniques in the context of novel application domains, such as security, sustainability, health care, transportation, and commerce.

Besides regular original papers, in this edition we also welcome discussion papers containing descriptions of results recently published or accepted for the presentation in international conferences. Discussion papers are expected to be more broadly accessible than regular papers, they are an opportunity for the authors to present their recent results to the AI community, and a valuable addition for the attendees of AIIA 2019.

At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register and attend the conference to present the work.

Proceedings of Regular Papers

The regular papers will be included in the proceedings of the conference, and will be published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series. Authors of selected regular papers accepted to the main track will be invited to submit an extended version for publication on "Intelligenza Artificiale", the International Journal of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence, edited by IOS Press and indexed by Thomson Reuters' "Emerging Sources Citation Index" and Scopus by Elsevier.

Proceedings of Discussion Papers

The discussion papers will not be included in the LNCS proceedings of the conference, and will be made available through the conference WEB-Site and possibly published on CEUR WS Proceedings upon request.

Best Papers

The Program Committee will select the Best Student Paper Award and the Best Paper Award from the accepted regular papers. In order to be eligible for the Best Student Paper award, at least one author must be a student.

Submission Instructions

The submitted papers should be written in English and formatted according to the Springer LNCS style.

Regular papers must be original papers which are not being submitted simultaneously for publication elsewhere. These papers should not exceed 12 pages plus bibliography.

The discussion papers report results already published or accepted for the publication in international conferences, and should not exceed 8 pages plus bibliography.

Paper submission is electronic via easychair at the address:
