Second 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 of 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original unpublished works, which describe relevant research about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

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.


- 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.


(a) CAEPIA Papers (Main track):

*Submission of papers: April 15, 2013
*Notification of acceptance/rejection: May 20, 2013
*Camera-ready copy due: June 15, 2013
*Technical sessions: September 17-20, 2013

CAEPIA'13 papers will be reviewed by at least three members of the
Program Committee which will be supervised by an area chair.

(b) Pre-doctoral papers (Doctoral Consortium):

*Submission of papers: June 30, 2013
*Notification of acceptance/rejection: July 31, 2013
*Camera-ready copy due: September 1, 2013

(c) Already published outstanding papers (Key works):

*Submission of papers: May 1, 2013
*Notification of acceptance/rejection: May 31, 2013
*Camera-ready copy due: June 15, 2013

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

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.
