22nd International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence IJCAI-11
Barcelona, Spain,
July 19-22, 2011

Call for Papers

The IJCAI-11 Program Committee invites submissions of
technical papers for IJCAI-11, to be held in Barcelona,
Spain, July 19-22, 2011. Submissions are invited on
significant, original, and previously unpublished research
on all aspects of artificial intelligence.

The theme of IJCAI-11 is ''Integrated and Embedded
Artificial Intelligence'' (IEAI) with a focus on artificial
intelligence that crosses discipline boundaries within AI,
and between AI and other disciplines. Building systems
often requires techniques from more than one area (e.g.
both machine learning and natural language processing, or
both planning and preference representation). In addition,
larger systems often have AI components embedded within
that provide intelligent functionalities such as learning
and reasoning. The conference will include a special track
dedicated to such work.

Important dates

Abstract submission: Jan 19, 2011 (11:59PM, UTC-12)
Paper submission: Jan 24, 2011 (11:59PM, UTC-12)
Author feedback: Feb 28-Mar 3, 2011 (11:59PM, UTC-12).
Notification of acceptance/rejection: Mar 31, 2011
Camera-ready copy due: Apr 15, 211
Technical sessions: Jul 19-22, 2011

Submission Details

Submitted papers must be formatted according to IJCAI
guidelines and submitted electronically through the
IJCAI-11 paper submission site. Full instructions including
formatting guidelines and electronic templates are
available on the IJCAI-11 website: 
(see the link titled Submission Details). Submission is
only electronic using the IJCAI-11 paper submission
software (this will be linked from the IJCAI-11 website
during the first week of December, 2010).

Papers will be accepted for either oral or poster
presentation. However, no distinction will be made between
accepted papers in the conference proceedings. At least one
author of each accepted paper is required to attend the
conference to present the work. Authors will be required to
agree to this requirement at the time of submission.

The paper title, author names, contact details, and a brief
abstract must be submitted electronically by January 19,
2011 (11:59 UTC-12). Authors will also be required to
indicate if their submission is for the special track on
''Integrated and Embedded Artificial Intelligence'' (IEAI),
in which case authors are required to clarify the
synergistic aspects of the integrated and embedded system.
All technical papers are due electronically on January 24,
2011 (11:59 UTC-12). Submissions received after the
deadline or that do not meet the length or formatting
requirements will not be accepted for review. No email or
fax submissions will be accepted. Notification of receipt
of an electronically submitted paper will be emailed to the
designated contact author soon after receipt. If there are
problems with the electronic submission, the program chair
will contact the designated author by email. The last day
for enquiries regarding lost submissions is January 28,
2011. The designated author will be emailed notification of
acceptance or rejection by March 31, 2011. Authors will
also be able to respond to preliminary reviews during the
period Feb. 28 to March 3, 2011. Guidelines for such
responses, along with details of the reviewing process will
be posted on the IJCAI-11 website. Camera-ready copy of
accepted papers must be received by the publisher by April
15, 2011.

Authors who do not have access to the web should contact
the program chair at <mailto:pcchair11 at ijcai.org>pcchair11 at ijcai.org 
no later than
January 1, 2011 for alternative submission instructions.

Content Areas

When submitting their abstract, authors will be required to
choose at least two and at most four content area keywords.
General categories should only be used if specific
categories do not apply or do not accurately reflect the
main contributions. Each keyword is placed within one of
ten major areas; however, many of the keywords cut across
multiple areas, and authors should feel free to select
keywords from multiple areas.

Policy on Multiple Submissions

IJCAI-11 will not accept any paper which, at the time of
submission,  is under review for or has already been
published or accepted for publication in a journal or
another conference. Authors are also required not to submit
their papers elsewhere during IJCAI's review period. These
restrictions apply only to journals and conferences, not to
workshops and similar specialized presentations with a
limited audience and without archival proceedings. Authors
will be required to confirm that their submissions conform
to these requirements at the time of submission.

Paper Length and Format

Submitted technical papers must be no longer than six
pages, including all figures and references, and must be
formatted according to posted IJCAI-11 guidelines. Papers
must be formatted for letter-size(8.5 x 11 paper, in
double-column format with a 10pt font. Electronic templates
for the LaTeX typesetting package, as well as a Word
template, that conform to IJCAI-11 guidelines will be made
available at the conference website in December.

Authors are required to submit their electronic papers  in
PDF format. Files in Postscript (ps), or any other format
will not be accepted.

Over-length papers will not be considered for review.  Each
accepted paper will be allowed six pages in the
proceedings; up to two additional pages may be purchased at
a price of $275 per page.

In order to make blind reviewing possible,  authors must
omit their names and affiliations from the paper. Also,
while the references should include all published
literature relevant to the paper, including previous works
of the authors, it should not include unpublished works.
When referring to one's own work, use the third person
rather than the first person. For example, say
''Previously, Foo and Bar [7] have shown that...'', rather
than ``In our previous work [7] we have shown that... Such
identifying information can be added back to the final
camera-ready version of accepted papers.

Review Process

Papers will be subject to blind peer review. Selection
criteria include accuracy and originality of ideas, clarity
and significance of results and quality of the
presentation.  IEAI papers will be judged based on the
usual measures of quality, with consideration of
the synergistic aspect of the integrated and embedded
components. Comparisons are
encouraged to be made against single-discipline systems.

The review process will include a short period for the
authors to view reviews and respond to technical questions
on the submitted work raised by the reviewers before
discussion starts within the programme committee. The
decision of the Program Committee will be final and cannot
be appealed.

Please send enquiries about paper submissions to
Toby Walsh, Program Chair IJCAI-11, 
<mailto:pcchair11 at ijcai.org>pcchair11 at ijcai.org.
