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 June 2018.  The deadline for submissions to the Proceedings is March 15.

(3)  We accept only submissions to the Proceedings that are based on oral presentations (session talks, workshop talks, and posters) at the conference. 

(4) Submission to the Proceedings are partly optional, as follows. The Proceedings will contain (Part I) Abstracts of plenary talks, not optional (Part II) Session papers, optional; (Part III) Workshop Descriptions including abstracts of workshop presentations, not optional; and (Part IV) Session abstracts, optional (note that for session presentations 'abstracts only' submissions can be included in the Proceedings on the condition that the presentation reports  ongoing empirical work; otherwise presenters need to submit a short paper in order to have their work included). For specific guidelines for submissions to parts (II)-(IV) see points (1)-(3) below. 

This means:  if you are a session speaker and wish to submit to the Proceedings, you need to submit a short paper (4000-5000 words, see below), unless you report ongoing work. Plenary speakers and workshop speakers are asked to release their abstracts for publication but may also submit a short paper based on their contribution if they wish.  

(5) In addition to the Proceedings there will be a conference program booklet containing abstracts and bio's of all speakers.  If you decide not to turn your abstract into a short paper that can be included in the Proceedings, your abstract will in any case appear in the conference program booklet (see below point 4).

(6) 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 paper 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.

(7) 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 organize, 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 at and after the conference.
