IJCAI 2013 Call for papers

The IJCAI 2013 Program Committee invites submissions of technical papers for IJCAI 2013, to be held in Beijing, China, on August 3-9, 2013. Submissions are invited on significant, original, and previously unpublished research on all aspects of artificial intelligence.

The theme of IJCAI 2013 is "AI and computational sustainability". AI can play a key role in addressing environmental, economic, and societal challenges concerning sustainable development and a sustainable future. AI techniques and methodologies can be exploited to help address sustainability problems and questions, for example to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the way we manage and allocate our natural and societal resources. The study of sustainability questions will also enrich and transform AI, by providing new challenges. The conference will include a special track dedicated to papers concerned with all these aspects (see below the call for paper for this track).

Full instructions including formatting guidelines and electronic templates are available on the IJCAI 2013 website: Submission is only electronic using the IJCAI 2013 paper submission software linked here.

Papers will be accepted for either oral or poster presentation, or both. 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 26, 2013 (11:59 UTC-12). Authors will also be required to indicate if their submission is for the special track on "AI and Computational Sustainability" (AICS), in which case authors are required to clarify the relevance to this theme. All technical papers are due electronically on January 31, 2013 (11:59 UTC-12). Submissions received after the deadline or that do not meet the length or formatting requirements will not be considered 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 February 4, 2013. The designated author will be emailed notification of accept
ance or rejection by April 2, 2013. Authors will also be able to respond to preliminary reviews during the period March 4-6, 2013. Guidelines for such responses, along with details of the reviewing process will be posted on the IJCAI 2013 website. Camera-ready copy of accepted papers must be received by the publisher by April 23, 2013.

Authors who do not have access to the web should contact the program chair at no later than January 1, 2013 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 2013 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-13 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 but excluding references, and must be formatted according to posted IJCAI 2013 guidelines. References can be up to one page. 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 2013 guidelines will be made available at the conference website in December 2012.

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 plus at most one additional page for references; 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
