Submission

Please read this page carefully before submitting your paper via the link provided at the bottom. This page contains important information and several notes about aspects of the submission process, as well as essential hints for preparing your submission!

IEA/AIE 2019 will have a special focus on the following topics:

  • Automated driving and autonomous systems
  • Mobile and autonomous robotics
  • AI for Tourism

All contributions dealing with such systems or their verification and validation are especially welcome.

Submissions related to the special topics shall be submitted like any other submission via the EasyChair link presented at the bottom of the page. You will make the reviewing process easier if you mark your paper as follows:  for automated driving/autonomous systems papers please add the prefix “STAD:” to your paper title, for robotics please add the prefix “STR:”, and for tourism applications of AI add the prefix “STT:”. The prefixes should be added both to the paper data entered in EasyChair and the paper title in the manuscript.

Authors are invited to submit their papers written in English, and using up to 12 single column pages (including references) to present the results of original research or innovative applications. Experience reports concerning state-of-the-art AI methodologies which offer a unique value to the conference attendees are also welcome. Presentations of work in progress or suggesting possible research directions may be submitted as short papers
with up to 6 pages. All contributions must conform to the Springer LNCS/LNAI style, and have to be submitted electronically via EasyChair (see the link at the bottom of this page). Papers submitted to IEA/AIE 2019 must not have been published or accepted for publication, or be under review for a journal or another conference. All submissions will be assessed in terms of originality, significance, technical merit, and clarity of the presentation in a double blind review process.

Please note that there is no need to mark your work as regular or short paper submission since this will be visible from the paper length and the content.

While we enable a double blind review process, we leave the decision whether you would like to include author information at submission time for each individual paper to you as that paper’s authors. Thus, you can choose either a double blind review for a paper, or if you decide that you would like to include author information in the manuscript at submission time, you can do so without experiencing any penalty or disadvantage! Sometimes this will make it easier to refer to your own earlier research and presentations of initial results at workshops.
There is no need for a special mark, the reviewers will see the author information only if you add it to the submitted manuscript!

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNCS/LNAI) series, where you can find corresponding author information (like templates) on their  website.  Authors of accepted papers will be allocated time for an oral presentation at the conference, and/or will have the opportunity to present their work in a poster session. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to fully register and attend the conference in order to present the work. All authors agree to this requirement
when submitting their paper for review.

In order to clarify the registration requirement before you submit your paper, we would like to point out that for every paper there has to be a full registration. So if you authored two papers, there have to be two individual registrations for the two papers. Student registrations do not count as a full registration, so a student would have to make a full registration if her or his registration should count for a paper.

A Best Paper Award and a Best Student Paper Award will be selected by the Best Paper Award Selection Committee and will be presented at the conference. The winners of each award will also receive a Springer monetary prize of EUR 500 (per paper).

Please note that at the time of submitting your paper you should not mark your paper as a student paper. We will require this information only at the time of submitting the camera ready version, and we will announce in the notification message how we would like you to provide this information if applicable.

By submitting a manuscript, you confirm to agree to all the requirements listed above. Furthermore you give your consent that upon notification of acceptance, we can use your paper and author info (like provided during submission) on the website to advertise the conference program and a list of accepted papers.

We’re looking forward to your submissions via EasyChair!
