Format of the Submission

Send the paper electronically according to the instructions for registering, formatting  and submitting on the page paper procedure.

The submission must be original, and must not be submitted anywhere else, or already accepted by any other conference or journal.

The selection of papers is made on the basis of review, by the program committee. Acceptance of papers will be based on the originality of work, on the suitability of the topic to the conference, and on the overall quality of your submission.

In the conference, there will be three categories of presentations, i.e. full papers, short papers and position papers. Papers may be submitted in the following categories:

SCIENTIFIC / TECHNICAL PAPER: You may submit your paper either as a full paper, (max. 20 pages), or as a short paper (preferred max. 12 pages). Presentation time in the conference is 30 minutes for full and 20 minutes for short papers.
POSITION PAPER: Research projects of any scale are invited to illustrate innovative concepts, theories, prototypes, or experiences. The position paper (work-in-progress) is preferred to be max 8 pages. The presentation time of position papers is 15 minutes. The papers may be improved, based on the discussion and comments (if any), to be published in the  final journal-paper publication.

The page limits are recommendations, but not obligatory. If the paper exceeds the recommended size, please contact the editing committee.

All papers (full/short/position) accepted and  presented in the conference are published in conference preprint by local organizers (distributed in the conference) and after the conference in the final journal-paper publication. After the conference authors have opportunity to improve their papers based on the discussions and comments. The final journal-paper publication is published in the Series of “Frontiers in Artificial Intelligence” by IOS Press (Amsterdam). The books “Information Modelling and Knowledge Bases Vol. n” are edited by the Editing Committee. It has right to propose obligatory improvements as a precondition to the publication in the final  journal print and has right to withdraw papers that do not follow the given guidelines and technical style. In all editorial issues please contact the editing committee chairman  (Hannu Jaakkola).

No extra hidden codes, nor any other features that are specific to a special computer (or language) environment should be included in any form. Otherwise reviewers may not be able to open and read your paper.
