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.

Regular papers for MRC are due July 14, 2023 (we expect that 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 September 19, 2023 (notification for these papers will arrive after the end of early bird registration).

Formatting Guidelines

Proceedings of MRC have previously been published in the CEUR Workshop Proceedings series and we plan to submit this year's proceedings as well. Starting in 2022, CEUR have adopted their own article style which we will also require for camera-ready copies of accepted papers.

However, we explicitly welcome papers which have been rejected at the main ECAI conference but which would still be suitable for a workshop. To make such re-submission as smooth as possible, you can chose to follow the formatting of the main conference for your submission to MRC as well.

We have prepared an author’s kit for MRC (based on the CEUR article style) that includes a LaTeX template, docx and odt files for word processors, and formatting instructions. If you prefer to use Overleaf, you can copy our Overleaf LaTeX project.

  • Long (full) papers are allowed twelve (12) pages in the CEUR style (roughly equivalent to 8 pages in the ECAI format).
  • Short papers, not exceeding six (6) pages in the CEUR style (4 pages in ECAI format), may be submitted for short or poster presentation.
  • Late and breaking papers which highlight current developments or characterise open challenges, are allowed six (6) pages in the CEUR style (4 pages in ECAI format). Please note the special deadline for late papers.

For all paper types, pages containing only references and acknowledgments are not counted towards the limits.

Submission Procedure

Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format only through the EasyChair pages for MRC 2023. 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 or in post-proceedings jointly published with other workshops at ECAI.

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. Please be advised that every workshop participant has to register for MRC through the main ECAI conference website.
