JELIA 2019

16th edition of the European Conference on Logics in Artificial Intelligence

May 8-10, 2019, Rende, Italy

Submission

Submissions should contain original research, and sufficient detail to assess the merits and relevance of the contribution. Submissions must not have been previously published or be simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere.

One “best paper” and one “best student paper” of the conference will receive a cash prize of EUR 500 each, offered by Springer. To be eligible for the "best student paper" award at least one author must be a student, i.e. she/he is currently enrolled in a bachelor, master or PhD program, or the graduation date is NOT BEFORE June 30th, 2018. Moreover, two high-quality papers of the conference that are suitable for presentation to a general AI audience, will be invited for publication (of abridged versions) to the IJCAI 2019 Sister Conference Best Paper Track. The authors of the top-notch contributions (from 3 to 6 papers, including both best papers) will be invited to submit long and more elaborate versions of their work for a special issue of Theory and Practice of Logic Programming (TPLP).

Instructions

JELIA 2019 welcomes submissions of long or short papers in the following categories:

  • Regular papers: Submissions should contain original research, and sufficient detail to assess the merits and relevance of the contribution. Submissions must not have been previously published or be simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere.
  • System/Application descriptions: Submissions should describe an implemented system/application and its application area(s). A demonstration should accompany a system/application presentation. Papers describing systems or applications that have already been presented in JELIA before will be accepted only if significant and clear enhancements have been implemented and are properly reported.

All submissions must be self-contained and should not exceed 13 (resp., 6) pages for long (resp., short) papers, including figures etc., but excluding references. Short submissions may range from extended abstracts to framework/system/application papers. All submissions (both long and short) may also include an appendix with no restriction in length containing, for example, proofs of theorems that are stated in the main submission, or relevant parts of source code. Reviewers will make their evaluations based on the main submission, and are not obligated to read the appendix. However, if proofs or other supplement matter are an important part of the contribution, their essential elements should be included in the main submission. Moreover, appendix will not be part of the camera-ready and it may only be a publicly available online resource. Submissions should be written in English, and should be formatted according to the standard Springer LNCS style [here]. Submissions are not anonymous. The conference proceedings of JELIA 2019 are published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence, a sub-series of Lecture Notes in Computer Science (Important note: Springer will require all the LaTeX source files of all accepted submissions).

Policy on Multiple Submission

JELIA 2019 will not accept any paper which, at the time of submission, is under review or has already been published or accepted for publication in a journal or another conference. Authors are also required not to submit their papers elsewhere during JELIA's review period. However, these restrictions do not apply to previous workshops with a limited audience and without archival proceedings.

JELIA 2019 submissions are handled through the EasyChair conference management system. Follow this link to register your abstract and submit your paper.
