Call for Papers

The call is available as text file here.

The conference invites original research papers from all areas of AI, its foundations, its algorithms, its history and its applications. KI 2015 also solicits technical communications and papers of senior researchers.

You are invited to submit original research and application papers on all aspects of AI research, including but not limited to the following:

  • Agent-based and multiagent systems
  • AI applications and innovations
  • Cognitive modeling
  • Commonsense reasoning
  • Computer vision
  • Constraint satisfaction, search, and optimization
  • Evolutionary computation
  • Game playing and interactive entertainment
  • Information retrieval, integration, and extraction
  • Knowledge acquisition and ontologies
  • Knowledge representation and reasoning
  • Machine learning and data mining
  • Multidisciplinary AI
  • Natural language processing
  • Planning and scheduling
  • Robotics - Uncertainty in AI
  • Web and information systems

We especially welcome application papers that provide 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.

Workshops, Tutorials, Doctoral Consortium

Together with the main conference, we plan to organize a small number of high-quality workshops. We especially encourage workshops organized by AI Special Interest Groups (GI-Fachgruppen), workshops that bring together researchers from different disciplines, and workshops that highlight emerging topics of AI research.

The technical program of KI 2015 is also complemented by a doctoral consortium that invites participation by PhD students at any stage and from any subject area within AI.

For details on submitting workshop proposals and for applying to the doctoral consortium, please see the KI2015 web page.


We invite papers, which have to be in English and formatted according to the Springer LNCS style, in the following three categories

  • Full technical papers (12 pages max., excluding references references) are expected to report on new research that makes a substantial technical contribution to the field. Additional details may be included in an appendix, which, however, will be read at the discretion of the PC.
  • Technical communications (6 pages max., excluding references) can report on research in progress, research already published elsewhere, or other issues of interest to the AI community. Examples of work suitable for technical communication paper submissions include: novel ideas 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. Technical communication submissions are especially invited for software demonstration or PhD work in progress.
  • Senior track papers (12 pages max., excluding references) should be written by a distinguished member of the AI community and cover a subject of general interest to the AI community. Examples of submissions eligible for this track include state-of-the-art reports about a subfield of AI, position papers on possible future developments in AI or its subfields, or papers on the interplay of AI research and society.

Submission will be through the EasyChair conference management system :

All papers will be subject to blind peer review 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. The KI 2015 proceedings will be published by Springer as a volume of the LNAI (Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence) series.
