Authors are invited to submit their papers in English of up to 12 single spaced pages including references, and presenting the results of original research or innovative practical applications relevant to the track. Shorter works, up to 6 pages may be submitted as short papers representing work in progress or suggesting possible research directions. Submitted papers must be formatted using the Springer LNCS/LNAI style and will be done electronically using the submission button below and by selecting the relevant track. The use of the LaTeX2e style file available from Springer is required. Papers submitted to IEA/AIE 2018 must not have already been published, or accepted for publication, or be under review for a journal or another conference. Submissions will go through a double blind review process by Program Committee members for originality, significance, technical merit, and clarity of presentation. In this regard, authors should not include any information that would identify them or their affiliations. Such information can however be added to the camera-ready version, if the paper is accepted.
The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNCS/LNAI) series . A paper will be accepted either as a long or as a short paper. Long papers will be allocated 12 pages while short papers will be allocated 6 pages in the proceedings. Authors of accepted papers will be allocated time for an oral presentation at the conference and will have the opportunity to present their work in a poster session. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to attend the conference to present the work. Authors must agree to this requirement prior to submitting their paper for review.
