The workshop invites two types of submissions: full papers, possibly already submitted to other conferences or journals, and short papers, which are particularly suitable for presenting work in progress, software prototypes, extended abstracts of doctoral theses, or general overviews of research projects. Authors are invited to submit their papers in English of up to 15 single spaced pages for full papers. Shorter works must not exceed 5 pages. All paper submissions will be done electronically, via the EasyChair system at the link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=aixia2020 by selecting the track Advances In Argumentation In Artificial Intelligence.
All papers will be peer reviewed and final copies of papers for inclusion to the conference proceedings will be published on CEUR as “CEUR Workshop Proceedings AI*IA Series” (Scopus indexed). Manuscripts should be formatted using the Springer LNCS style (formatting instructions are available at http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html).
Post-proceedings of selected and revised papers
Authors of selected papers, accepted to the workshops, will be invited to submit a revised and extended version of their work to appear in a volume, published by an important international publisher. A selection of the best papers, accepted for the presentation at the workshops, will be invited to submit an extended version for publication on “intelligenza Artificiale”, the International Journal of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence, edited by IOS Press and indexed by Thomson Reuters’ “Emerging Sources Citation Index” and Scopus by Elsevier.
Format of the video presentations
Authors of accepted papers at the workshops will be requested to provide a video recorded presentation of their work. Presentations will be available to all members of the association. Videos must have a length between 5 and 8 minutes. The video should be in MP4 format (1280×720). More details will be published here.
