IJCAI 2013 submission instructions
Submissions are invited on significant, original, and previously unpublished research on all aspects of artificial intelligence.
Type of papers
IJCAI 2013 seeks high quality submissions of full technical papers, limited to 6 pages plus at most one additional page for references. In addition, the AI and Computational Sustainability (AICS) track, seeks submissions of data challenge papers, limited to 3 pages everything included.
IJCAI 2013 has one main track and an additional "AI and Computational Sustainability" (AICS) track, since this is the theme of the conference.
When submitting a paper, authors are asked to specify to which track they want to submit it to. Technical papers can be submitted to any of the two tracks, while data challenge papers can be submitted only to the AICS track.
Technical AICS papers should show how AI can be instrumental in addressing sustainability questions, while data challenge papers should provide the description of a new sustainability problem as well as the corresponding data set to be made available to the AI community.
Formatting instructions
Technical papers should be limited to 6 pages plus at most one additional page for references, while data challenge papers should be limited to 3 pages everything included.
Submissions should be formatted in PDF according to IJCAI guidelines and submitted electronically through the IJCAI 2013 paper submission site. Formatting guidelines and electronic templates are available on the IJCAI 2013 website: http://ijcai13.org/files/ijcai13.zip.
In order to make blind reviewing possible, authors must omit their names and affiliations from the paper. Also, while the references should include all published literature relevant to the paper, including previous works of the authors, it should not include unpublished works. When referring to one's own work, use the third person rather than the first person. Identifying information can be added back to the final camera-ready version of accepted papers.
Registering and submitting papers
To submit a paper, you should first register it.
To register a paper for submission, authors need to specify the title, abstract, keywords, author(s), main track or AICS track, type of paper (technical or data challenge), as well as at least two and at most four content area keywords, by January 26, 2013.
For paper registered in the AICS track, at least one keyword should be chosen within the specific AICS keywords, and at least one from the general IJCAI 2013 keyword list.
There is no need to upload the full PDF when you register the paper, but you need to upload the full PDF before the final deadline: January 31, 2013. Without the PDF of the paper, the review process will not start.
