General Information

IBERAMIA'2014 is the 14th edition of the Ibero-American Conference on Artificial Intelligence.
This is the leading symposium where the Ibero-American AI community comes together to share research results and experiences with researchers in Artificial Intelligence from all over the world.

IBERAMIA 2014 will be held in Santiago, Chile, on November 24-27, 2014.
The conference will take in the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, which is located in the city centre of Santiago and can be reached easily by train, by car, by tram or by foot.

The conference will feature a pre-conference program of workshops. The main technical program will consist of invited talks by leading scientists working in the area, presentations of technical papers, as well as system demonstrations.

The Proceedings of IBERAMIA 2014 will be published, as in past editions, by Springer in its Lecture Notes in Computer Science/Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence LNCS/LNAI series.


Call for papers

Call for Papers (pdf)

 

IBERAMIA 2014 welcomes submissions on mainstream AI topics, as well as novel cross cutting work in related areas. Topics may include but are not limited to the following:

AI in Education Fuzzy Systems
Applications of AI Ambient intelligence
Human-Computer Interaction Affective computing
Agent-based Modelling and Simulation Information and Knowledge Processing
Bio-inspired computing Knowledge acquisition and ontologies
Computer Vision Knowledge Engineering and Applications
Constraint satisfaction and optimization Knowledge Representation and Probabilistic Reasoning
Data Mining Machine Learning
Emotional computing Multi-Agent Systems
Evolutionary computing Natural Language Processing
Neural networks Planning and Scheduling
Robotics

Papers must be written in English, and will be reviewed on the basis of their relevance, significance of the contribution, originality, technical soundness, quality and clarity. As in previous years, accepted papers will be published in the series "Advances in Artificial Intelligence" of Springer-Verlag LNAI.



Paper submission details

Submitted papers must not exceed 12 pages, including all tables, figures, and references and are required to be formatted in the Springer LNCS format (see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html). Submissions over twelve pages will be rejected without review. Papers must be submitted through the EasyChair Conference System at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iberamia2014. The conference is organized in several areas, so the authors should choose to submit the paper to the most appropriate area for their work.

All submissions will go through a peer review process, with independent PC members reviewing each submission. Reviewing will be blind, so author names and affiliations must be omitted from the submission, using instead the unique tracking number assigned by the conference system at the time of submission. In addition, self-references in the text, like "in [Garcia 2004], we prove that" should be avoided, using instead references such as "in [Garcia 2004] has been proved that".

Call for Workshops Proposals

The organizing committee of the Iberoamerican Conference on Artificial Intelligence invites proposals for its Workshop Program, whose objective is to provide a forum to discuss advances in specific areas of AI. The format of the workshop is free, but we recommend that organizers plan for at least one invited talk, followed by research talks.

Workshops will be held on November 24, at the conference venue.

Workshop proposals should be no more than 3 pages and must indicate:

- A description of the workshop topic.
- A brief discussion of why the topic is of interest to AI researchers.
- The names/institutions of Program Committee members.
- The name or candidate names for tentative speakers.
- An estimate of the number of attendees.

The organizers of each workshop are responsible for:

- Producing a call for papers/participation and distributing it.
- Organizing the review process and paper submission (if any).
- Designing the workshop program.
- Making the accepted papers available to the local organizers.

Submissions must be sent by email to jabaier@ing.puc.cl and chernan@ucsc.cl.
