============== KI 2017: 2nd Call for Papers ==============

40th German Conference on Artificial Intelligence
September 25-29, 2017
Dortmund, Germany



KI 2017 is the 40th edition of the German Conference on Artificial Intelligence organized by the Fachbereich Künstliche Intelligenz der Gesellschaft für Informatik. KI traditionally brings together academic and industrial researchers from all areas of AI, providing an ideal place for exchanging news and research results of intelligent system technology. The technical program of KI 2017 will comprise paper and poster presentations and a variety of workshops and tutorials.

KI 2017 will take place in Dortmund, Germany, September 25th-29th, 2017, and is a premier forum for exchanging news and research results on theory and applications of intelligent system technology.

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.

======== Invited Speakers and Historical Session ========
We are proud to announce keynote speeches by the following invited speakers:
* Gerhard Brewka (Universität Leipzig)
* Luc De Raedt (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven)

Being the 40th anniversary of the German Conference on Artificial Intelligence we are also planning a special "Historical Session" with a podium discussion and several short talks by further invited speakers on the history of AI in general and in Germany. More details on this session will be made available soon.

======== Workshops and Tutorials ========
The main program of the conference is complemented by a workshop and tutorial program:
* Workshop: Planen und Konfigurieren 
* Workshop: AI challenges for humanoid soccer-playing robots
* Workshop: Forgetting in Artificial Intelligence
* Workshop: ZooOperation Competition 
* Workshop: Intelligent Systems for Industry 4.0
* Workshop: Deduktionstreffen
* Workshop: Formal and Cognitive Reasoning
* Tutorial: Defeasible Reasoning for Description Logics
* Tutorial: Knowledge Representation and Reasoning with Nilsson-style Probabilistic Logics
* Tutorial: Unification in Description and Modal Logics

For details on submitting workshop papers see the individual workshop webpages linked to from the conference webpage (http://ki2017.tu-dortmund.de).

======== Paper Submission ========
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; etc. 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, 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 2017 proceedings will be published by Springer as a volume of the LNAI (Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence) series.

======== Important Dates ========
Workshop/Tutorial proposals: Jan 30th, 2017
Workshop/Tutorial notification: Feb 6th, 2017
Full/Short Paper submission: May 5th, 2017
Acceptance notification: June 16th, 2017
