Submissions to Proceedings

Submissions to Proceedings

(1) The Proceedings of this conference will appear in the series Frontiers of Artificial Intelligence and Applications with IOS Press, Amsterdam.

(2) The Proceedings will be prepared shortly after the conference and will appear in July 2018.  The deadline for submissions to the Proceedings is April 15. 

(3)  We accept only submissions to the Proceedings that are based on oral presentations (session talks, workshop talks, and posters) at the conference. In order to be able to submit to the Proceedings authors need to be (i) registered at the conference and (ii) have given an oral presentation of the paper at the conference (exemptions from (ii) due to illness or other impeding circumstances are possible).

(4) There are 4 types of submissions: short abstracts (500 words), short papers (4000-5000 words), workshop descriptions, and long abstracts (2000 words). These types of submissions are described more in detail below. Which type of submission can be accepted depends on one's role in the conference, as follows:

  • keynote speakers are asked to release their webpage abstracts but may also submit long or short papers 
  • session speakers and poster presenters must submit short papers to have their work included (exception: for ongoing empirical work long abstracts may be submitted)
  • workshop organizers submit workshop descriptions
  • workshop speakers must submit short abstracts, and may in addition submit a short paper 

(5)  All submissions to the Proceedings will undergo a second review.  For short papers based on abstracts that were accepted in the peer review of the conference, this second review will be mainly editorial; all other submissions of short papers will undergo a second peer review.  The short papers published in the Proceedings from Robophilosophy 2016 can provide orientation on the level of quality aimed for. (Please also consult the previous Proceedings to ensure that your paper reflects the current state of research in robophilosophy.)

(6) It is possible to submit a short paper to the Proceedings and a longer paper to the other publication venues that the conference organizers will prepare, as long as there is not more than 30% direct textual overlap.  Detailed information about the additional publication venues (anthologies and special issues) will be distributed in personal mail, open call, and under 'Publication' on this website.
