KI 2013 From Research to Innovation and Practical Applications 

36th Annual Conference on Artificial Intelligence 
Koblenz, September 16-20, 2013 

About the Main Conference 
KI 2013 is the 36th edition of the German Conference on Artificial 
Intelligence, which traditionally brings together academic and industrial 
researchers from all areas of AI. The technical program of KI 2013 will 
comprise paper and poster presentations and a variety of workshops 
and tutorials. 

KI 2013 will take place in Koblenz, Germany, September 16th-20th, 2013, 
and is a premier forum for exchanging news and research results on 
theory and applications of intelligent system technology. The conference 
is organized by the Artificial Intelligence section of the German Informatics 
Society (GI e.V.) . KI 2013 is co-located with Informatik 2013 (Annual 
Conference of the German Informatics Society), the 11th MATES 2013 
(German Conference on Multi-Agent System Technologies), and the 4th 
JAWS (Joint Agent Workshops in Synergy). The conference invites original 
research papers from all areas of AI, its fundamentals, its algorithms, its 
history and its applications. 

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to 
• Knowledge Acquisition, Representation, Reasoning and Ontologies 
• Combinatorial Search, Configuration, Design and Deduction 
• Natural Language Processing, Statistical NLP, Semantics 
• Planning and Scheduling; Spatial and Temporal Reasoning 
• Reasoning under Uncertainty, Probabilistic Inferences 
• Non-Monotonic Reasoning and Default Logics 
• Constraint Satisfaction, Processing and Programming 
• Embodied AI: Robotics, Vision and Perception 
• Intelligent Information Retrieval, Semantic Search, Semantic Web 
• Evolutionary and Neural Computation 
• Machine Learning, Computational Learning Theory and Data-Mining 
• Distributed Artificial Intelligence and Multi-Agent Systems 
• Game Playing and Interactive Entertainment, AI for Graphics 
• Game Theory and General Game Playing, Generalized Intelligence 
• AI for Human-Computer-Interaction and Adaptive Communication 
• Mobile Solutions with Textile, Semantic and Spatial Media 
• Augmented Reality, Smart Cities, Smart Traffic, Smart Hardware 
• Assistance Systems in Living and Working Environments 
• Software-Engineering, Model Checking and Security in AI 
• Distributed Computation and Swarm Intelligence 
• Artificial General Intelligence 
• Cognitive Modelling, AI and Psychology 
• History and Philosophical Foundations of AI 
• Applications including Logistics, Production and Health Care 

We especially welcome application papers and posters providing 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. 

Submission Guidelines 
Submitted papers, which have to be in English, must not exceed 12 pages 
in Springer LNCS style for full technical contributions and 4 pages for poster 

Full technical papers are expected to report on new research that makes a 
substantial technical contribution to the field. Poster submissions are also 
included in the main proceedings and can report on new research or other 
issues of interest to the AI community. Examples of work suitable for poster 
submissions include: novel ideas that are not yet fully developed or 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 
analyzed; position or challenge papers; etc. Poster submissions are 
especially invited for software demonstration or PhD work in progress. 

Submission of papers is handled via ConfTool 

Papers will be subject to blind peer review. All papers will be reviewed based 
on the standard criteria of relevance, significance of results, originality of ideas, 
soundness, and quality of the presentation. 

All accepted papers will be published in the main conference proceedings, 
and will be presented at the conference. At least one author of each 
accepted paper must register for the conference and present the contribution. 
The KI 2013 proceedings will be published by Springer as a volume of the 
LNAI (Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence) series.

Paper submission: 26.4.2013 
Acceptance notification: 17.6.2013 
Final version due: 1.7.2013
