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 IJCAI conference but which would still be suitable for a workshop.

Regular papers (long or short) for MRC are due May 18, 2021 (notification of acceptance will be sent out in time for the early bird registration deadline for the main conferences). Late and breaking papers for MRC are due July 20, 2021 (notification for these papers will arrive after the end of early bird registration).

Formatting Guidelines

Papers should be formatted according to the IJCAI formatting guidelines. Authors should consult IJCAI’s author kit and use their proceedings templates, available both for LaTeX and for word processors such as MS Word, to prepare their papers.

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 (please note the extended deadline for late papers). For all paper types, pages containing only references and acknowledgements are not counted towards that limit.

Submission Procedure

Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format only through the EasyChair pages for MRC 2021. 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.

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 or 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 IJCAI conference website.
