AI*IA 2014 Doctoral Consortium


The aim of the Doctoral Consortium is to provide an opportunity for Ph.D. students to present their ongoing research receiving valuable feedback, and to get a state-of-the-art picture of research in other academic institutions, thus promoting networking among students from the same and/or different research areas. For this purpose, we invite papers in one of the following submission categories:

  • Thesis/Research proposal (for students who wish to get feedback on the progress of their thesis work)
  • Research papers
  • Position papers/Surveys
  • Prototypes/Demos

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • A.I. for Society and Economy
  • Big Data
  • Cognitive Systems
  • Complex Networks
  • Computer Vision
  • Data Mining and Machine Learning
  • Formal Methods for AI
  • Information Extraction
  • Knowledge Representation and Reasoning
  • Multi-agent Systems
  • Natural Language Understanding
  • Ontologies
  • Philosophical Perspectives
  • Planning and Scheduling
  • Robotics
  • Search Methodologies
  • Uncertainty


Each author will be asked to review 2 or 3 submitted papers. This gives the student the opportunity of taking part in the actual 'behind-the-scenes' reviewing process; this also allows participants to be acquainted with the accepted papers in advance, which in turn will facilitate discussions at the workshop. The members of the organizing committee will be appointed with the task of supervising and monitoring the reviewing process, making sure that all reviews match fairness and quality standards.


All submissions must be written in English and must be formatted according to the information for LNCS Authors. The only accepted format for submitted papers is PDF. The maximum submission length is 10 pages (A4). Paper submission will be handled electronically by means of the Easychair system. The submission page is available here .
Accepted papers will be included in the workshop proceedings published on-line by CEUR and will also be indexed by DBLP. The authors of the accepted papers must attend the workshop to present the paper and must be registered to the AI*IA symposium.
