First Call for Workshop Proposals

Click here to view the CFP from a text file.

The ECAI 2020 Organizing Committee invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the conference. There is no restriction regarding the topics if there is a clear relevance to ECAI. The 2020 edition of ECAI is looking to increase the number of workshops and their diversity. In this regard, we welcome workshop proposals related to any of the ECAI2020 topics, as well as in multidisciplinary topics between AI and other areas, or applications of AI in other fields.

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 or half-day workshops can also be accommodated.

If you are considering proposing a workshop or if you have any question, please do not hesitate to get in touch with ECAI2020 Workshops Chairs:

  • Amparo Alonso-Betanzos (Univ. da Coruña)
  • Magdalena Ortiz (TU Wien)
