Call for Workshop Proposals PDF Print E-mail

ImageThe nineteenth biennial European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI 2010) will take place on 16-20 August 2010 in Lisbon, Portugal. We invite proposals for workshops to be held during the first two days of the conference.

(Download the ECAI 2010 Call for Workshop Proposals as a text file.)

Workshops @ ECAI 2010

Workshop proposals by all members of the international AI community are welcome. There is no restriction regarding topics, as long as there is clear relevance to ECAI. Most workshops will follow the classical format of presentations of peer-reviewed papers followed by discussion, but other formats (e.g., AI competitions) and entirely new ideas are also welcome. Whatever the format, all workshops should be interactive events and ample time should be allocated to discussion. The typical duration for a workshop is one full day, but two-day workshops can also be accommodated.

If you are considering to propose a workshop or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the ECAI 2010 Workshop Chair, Ulle Endriss ( This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it ).

How To Propose a Workshop

Please submit your proposal as a single PDF file via Easychair:


Each proposal should include the following information:

  1. Title of the workshop (and acronym).
  2. Names, affiliations, and contact details of the organisers (please indicate a primary contact person to whom correspondence should be directed).
  3. Short description: What is the topic of the workshop? What is the format (peer-reviewed papers, poster sessions, invited talks, panels, competitions, ...)?
  4. History of this workshop and related events: Is this the first workshop of its kind or is this part of a series? What are the most closely related workshops or similar events that have taken place over the past three years? What other closely related events will take place in 2010 (as far as you know)?
  5. Size: How many people do you expect to attend? How many papers (or posters, competition entries, ...) do you expect to be submitted? What are your estimates based on? If applicable, please indicate attendance/submission numbers for previous editions.
  6. Duration: 1 or 2 days (this can be revised later on if required).
  7. Experience of the organisers: Please briefly argue why you are the right people to organise this workshop (scientific standing, previous events organised, ...).
  8. Draft of the Call for Papers: This should include a description of the scientific goals of the workshop, the target audience, the topics to be covered, the reviewing process (if applicable), and a tentative list of Programme Committee members (please indicate who has already given their consent to serve on the PC).
  9. Anything else that you feel is important!

Further Information for Workshop Organizers


Informal proceedings will be printed by the ECAI 2010 local organisers. The workshop organisers should deliver a single PDF with the proceedings by the deadline. The default expectation is that proceedings will be no more than 200 pages, but exceptions (e.g., in case of large workshops) are possible. Please contact the workshop chair early on to request any such extensions.


To avoid misunderstandings, please note that all workshop participants, including the organisers, are required to register for both the workshop and the main conference. However, we can arrange for a free workshop (not conference) registration for an invited speaker or similar.


Please understand that we may have to cancel a workshop if not enough participants register or if deadlines are not met.
