KI 2012 is the 35th edition of the German Conference on Artificial Intelligence, which traditionally brings together academic and industrial researchers from all areas of AI. The technical programme of KI 2012 will comprise paper and poster presentations and a variety of workshops and tutorials.
KI 2012 will take place in Saarbrücken, Germany, September 24-27, 2012, and is a premier forum for exchanging news and research results on theory and applications of all aspects on AI.
The conference invites significant, original, and previously unpublished research from all areas of AI, its fundamentals, its algorithms, its history, and its applications.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 Problem Solving 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 * 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 short contributions.
Full technical papers are expected to report on new research that makes a substantial technical contribution to the field.
Short papers can report on new research or other issues of interest to the AI community. Examples of work suitable for short papers 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.
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.
