Author Guidelines

You must compy with the AAAI Press Formatting Instructions for Authors, which can be found in the AAAI Author Kit. You must also fully comply with the submission instructions. The following must be submitted by the deadline:

  1. A complete abstract of your paper of no more than 400 words.
  2. A PDF in which all fonts have been embedded and is formatted in accordance with the AAAI Press guidelines (the submission file).
  3. A compressed archive containing all the files necessary to recompile your paper on a separate computer not linked to your own (for Word, this is the "doc" file; for LaTeX, it includes all your figures, .sty files, bib files, dvi file, a single LaTeX tex source file (that also contains your references), and so forth). This archive should be uploaded in the submission process as a supplementary file.

Your fully-compliant electronic camera ready copy is due by the deadline noted in the submission instructions. Submissions, revisions, or corrections made after the deadline date and time will not be accepted.

Do NOT SUBMIT MORE THAN ONCE. If you make a mistake, you must correct the original submission following the instructions provided in the a submission instructions.

 

Submission Preparation Checklist

  1. I affirm that I have the right to submit this paper, that I have permission from all my coauthors to grant the rights given to publish the paper, that copyright to it has not been granted to any third party, and that the paper (including figures, tables, and pictures) violates no copyrights or trademarks. I understand that my paper will not be published and I may face additional more severe penalties, including legal prosecution if this affirmation is false.
  2. I have checked every page of my paper and certify that it adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the AAAI Press Formatting Instructions, which can be found in the AAAI Press Author Kit. I understand that papers that do not conform will be excluded from publication.
  3. If my paper was formatted using LaTeX, I have used an unaltered copy of version of aaai17.sty and aaai.bst and my LaTeX source file does not use the hyperref or geometry or natbib packages. If my paper was formatted in Word, I have used an unaltered copy of the 2017 version of the aaai17.doc file, and have used the style sheets provided in that file.
  4. All fonts have been embedded in my US Letter-Sized PDF, including those used in graphics files. I understand that if this is not the case, my paper cannot be published.
  5. I have signed and mailed the original of the AAAI Copyright form (included in the author kit) to AAAI (2275 East Bayshore Road, Suite 160 Palo Alto, CA 94303). I understand that my paper will not be published if I do not submit this signed form in a timely manner.
  6. I reaffirm that I have the right to submit this paper, that I have permission from all my coauthors to grant the rights given to publish the paper, that copyright to it has not been granted to any third party, and that the paper violates no copyrights or trademarks.

    IF YOU CANNOT MAKE THIS AFFIRMATION, DO NOT SUBMIT YOUR PAPER.
  7. I understand that once I have completed this submission process, I will need to log back in and check to ensure that my submission is complete (that is, that all authors have been included in the metadata, a PDF has been submitted first, and a compressed archive containing all the files necessary to recreate my paper on an AAAI Press computer have been submitted). I also understand that I should NOT make a new submission if something is missing — instead I should edit this submission and/or add an additional supplementary file to this submission instead.
