Submission Instruction

Submissions must be original, and should not have been formally published or accepted for publication elsewhere. We also invite longer versions of papers published in short form elsewhere. MRC being a joint workshop for IJCAI-ECAI, ICML and AAMAS, we explicitly welcome papers which have been rejected at the main conferences but which would still be suitable for a workshop.

Early bird papers for MRC are due May 4, 2018 (notification of acceptance will be sent out in time for the early bird registration deadline for the main conferences). Regular papers for MRC are due May 18, 2018 (notification for these papers will arrive after the end of early bird registration).

Formatting Guidelines

Original papers should be prepared according to the IJCAI-ECAI formatting guidelines, and using the LaTeX Styles or Word template for IJCAI-ECAI 2018.

Long papers are allowed eight (8) pages. Short papers, not exceeding four (4) pages, may be submitted for short presentation. For both paper types, two additional pages containing only references and acknowledgments are allowed.

Please note: Papers formatted according to the author guidelines and styles for ICML 2018 or AAMAS 2018 may be submitted to MRC without reformatting to the IJCAI-ECAI style.

Submission Procedure

Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format only through the EasyChair pages for MRC 2018. Authorship does not need to be anonymous, but you are free to submit papers with identifying information removed.

Review Process

Three members of the program committee will review each submission. A review form will direct committee members to evaluate submissions for appropriateness, technical strength, originality, presentation, and overall evaluation, as well as recording the reviewer's confidence in the topic.

Accepted Papers

The proceedings of the workshop will be published electronically and made freely available. Depending on the nature of submissions, the proceedings will be published through a suitable channel such as the CEUR Workshop Proceedings. Authors of accepted papers might be invited to submit extended versions for inclusion in a special journal issue on contextualised systems, if justified by the quantity and quality of submissions.

The authors will be responsible for producing camera­-ready copies of papers in PDF format, conforming to the formatting guidelines, for inclusion in the published proceedings.

At least one author of each accepted paper is required to attend the workshop to present the contribution.
