ECAI 2020 is going digital, taking place August 29 to September 5.

While the registration procedure for ECAI is still to be published, it is already clear that there will be no registration fees for workshop participation. Since organizing and attending the workshop is now both significantly cheaper and easier, we have decided to keep paper submission open until further notice, for all types of papers. There will be a deadline announced in due time to allow for both the review process and the preparation of the proceedings, but going all digital, we expect that we can accept further submissions for quite a while. Updates follow when we know more about the final registration process for ECAI.

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. We explicitly welcome papers which have been rejected at the main ECAI conference but which would still be suitable for a workshop.

Formatting Guidelines

Original papers should be prepared according to the ECAI formatting guidelines, and using the LaTeX Styles or Word template for ECAI 2020.

Long papers are allowed eight (8) pages. Short papers, not exceeding four (4) pages, may be submitted for short or poster presentation. Late and breaking papers which highlight current developments or characterise open challenges are allowed four (4) pages. For all paper types, pages containing only references and acknowledgments are not counted towards that limit.

Submission Procedure

Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format only through the EasyChair pages for MRC 2020. Authorship does not need to be anonymous, but we encourage you to submit papers with identifying information removed.

Review Process

Three members of the program committee will review each submission (two members for late and breaking papers). 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 attend the workshop to present the contribution, either in-person virtually. For virtual presentations, a video with the presentation has to be submitted by the camera-ready deadline. Details will be given in the notification email. Please be advised that every workshop participant has to register for MRC through the main ECAI conference (workshop-only registrations are available).
