Call for Workshops

The AIxIA 2022 Conference will host a series of workshops dedicated to specific and hot topics that will complement the main conference program. AIxIA Working Groups, scientific and industrial research groups, and individual researchers interested in a subarea of Artificial Intelligence or in a related topic of growing importance are invited to submit proposals of workshops associated with the AIxIA 2022 conference. We particularly welcome proposals aimed at bringing together researchers from a wide range of disciplines, to exchange ideas and to allow cross-fertilization.

Workshop proposals should be submitted in English as a single PDF file not longer than 4 (four) pages containing the following sections:

  • Workshop title and acronym

  • Workshop organizers (affiliation, contact details, homepage, prior experiences with workshop organization)

  • Motivation and scientific relevance to the conference audience

  • Keywords (describing the main themes of the workshop) (from 3 to 5)

  • Abstract (up to 200 words)

  • Description of the workshop (topics and goals of the workshop) (up to 800 words)

  • Organizational details such as: thematic panels, demo sessions, invited talks

  • Initial list of (potential) members of the program committee

  • Previous editions of the workshop series (if applicable) (URLs, conference it was co-located with, number of registrants, number of submissions, number of accepted papers, and any other relevant information)

  • Expected length of the workshop (in hours)

Proposals should be submitted via email to both WS chairs (SUBJECT: “AIxIA 2022 Workshop Proposal”).

In case of a workshop traditionally included in past AIxIA Conferences, the proposers can simply communicate to the WS chairs their intention to organize the 2022 edition of the event.

The expected number of submissions is at least 5 for half-day workshops and at least 8 for full-day ones. Workshops that do not reach the suggested target might not be activated or may be merged with other events. Also, the conference chairs may decide to merge, in coordination with workshops proposers, two workshop in case their topics largely overlap.

Workshop schedule: each workshop will be assigned a number of slots during the conference days. The distribution of slots will take into account the accepted papers and workshop organization.

Management of the Submission, Review, and Publishing Process

The workshops organizers will manage on their own the submission, review, and publishing process. The key dates and publication policy must be shared with the conference organization.

Workshop proceedings should preferably be published in CEUR Workshop Proceedings AIxIA Series selecting Workshop as the submission topic.

The workshop Call for Papers, all other calls, and the website should clearly state that the workshop is held within the AIxIA 2022 Conference, including the URL of the conference website.

All workshop participants (including the organizers) will have to register to AIxIA 2022.
The workshops must notify acceptance of papers by October 30, to allow authors to enjoy the early registration fee.
