Paper Submission and Publication

The workshop encourages submissions in four categories:

  • Long papers, either reporting on completed work or offering a polemic discussion on a burning issue (up to 10 pages).
  • Short papers describing work in progress (up to 5 pages).
  • Demonstration of implemented systems: submissions should be accompanied by written reports (up to 3 pages).
  • Short abstract, describing a doctoral thesis summary or a project proposal (up to 2 pages).

It is highly recommended, but not mandatory, to submit papers using the final IJCAI camera-ready formatting style.
