http://ijcai13.org/submission_instructions

The IJCAI 2013 Program Committee invites submissions of technical papers
for IJCAI 2013, to be held in Beijing, China, on August 3-9, 2013.
Submissions are invited on significant, original, and previously
unpublished research on all aspects of artificial intelligence.

The theme of IJCAI 2013 is "AI and computational sustainability". AI can
play a key role in addressing environmental, economic, and societal
challenges concerning sustainable development and a sustainable future. AI
techniques and methodologies can be exploited to help address
sustainability problems and questions, for example to increase the
efficiency and effectiveness of the way we manage and allocate our natural
and societal resources. The study of sustainability questions will also
enrich and transform AI, by providing new challenges. The conference will
include a special track dedicated to papers concerned with all these
aspects (see below the call for paper for this track).

Full instructions including formatting guidelines and electronic templates
are available on the IJCAI 2013 website:
http://ijcai13.org/files/ijcai13.zip. Submission is only electronic using
the IJCAI 2013 paper submission software linked here.

Papers will be accepted for either oral or poster presentation, or both.
However, no distinction will be made between accepted papers in the
conference proceedings. At least one author of each accepted paper is
required to attend the conference to present the work. Authors will be
required to agree to this requirement at the time of submission.

The paper title, author names, contact details, and a brief abstract must
be submitted electronically by January 26, 2013 (11:59 UTC-12). Authors
will also be required to indicate if their submission is for the special
track on "AI and Computational Sustainability" (AICS), in which case
authors are required to clarify the relevance to this theme. All technical
papers are due electronically on January 31, 2013 (11:59 UTC-12).
Submissions received after the deadline or that do not meet the length or
formatting requirements will not be considered for review. No email or fax
submissions will be accepted. Notification of receipt of an electronically
submitted paper will be emailed to the designated contact author soon
after receipt. If there are problems with the electronic submission, the
program chair will contact the designated author by email. The last day
for enquiries regarding lost submissions is February 4, 2013. The
designated author will be emailed notification of acceptance or rejection
by April 2, 2013. Authors will also be able to respond to preliminary
reviews during the period March 4-6, 2013. Guidelines for such responses,
along with details of the reviewing process will be posted on the IJCAI
2013 website. Camera-ready copy of accepted papers must be received by the
publisher by April 23, 2013.

Authors who do not have access to the web should contact the program chair
at pcchair13@ijcai.org no later than January 1, 2013 for alternative
submission instructions.

Content Areas
When submitting their abstract, authors will be required to choose at
least two and at most four content area keywords. General categories
should only be used if specific categories do not apply or do not
accurately reflect the main contributions. Each keyword is placed within
one of ten major areas; however, many of the keywords cut across multiple
areas, and authors should feel free to select keywords from multiple
areas.

Policy on Multiple Submissions
IJCAI 2013 will not accept any paper which, at the time of submission, is
under review for or has already been published, or accepted for
publication, in a journal or another conference. Authors are also required
not to submit their papers elsewhere during IJCAI-13 review period. These
restrictions apply only to journals and conferences, not to workshops and
similar specialized presentations with a limited audience and without
archival proceedings. Authors will be required to confirm that their
submissions conform to these requirements at the time of submission.

Paper Length and Format
Submitted technical papers must be no longer than six pages, including all
figures but excluding references, and must be formatted according to
posted IJCAI 2013 guidelines. References can be up to one page. Papers
must be formatted for letter-size (8.5 x 11) paper, in double-column
format with a 10pt font. Electronic templates for the LaTeX typesetting
package, as well as a Word template, that conform to IJCAI 2013 guidelines
will be made available at the conference website in December 2012.

Authors are required to submit their electronic papers in PDF format.
Files in Postscript (ps) or any other format will not be accepted.

Over-length papers will not be considered for review. Each accepted paper
will be allowed six pages in the proceedings plus at most one additional
page for references; up to two additional pages may be purchased at a
price of $275 per page.

In order to make blind reviewing possible, authors must omit their names
and affiliations from the paper. Also, while the references should include
all published literature relevant to the paper, including previous works
of the authors, it should not include unpublished works. When referring to
one's own work, use the third person rather than the first person. For
example, say "Previously, Foo and Bar [7] have shown that, rather than "In
our previous work [7] we have shown that? Such identifying information can
be added back to the final camera-ready version of accepted papers.

Review Process
Papers will be subject to blind peer review. Selection criteria include
accuracy and originality of ideas, clarity and significance of results and
quality of the presentation. AICS papers will be judged based on the usual
measures of quality, with consideration of the relevance to the theme and
the potential impact on sustainability problems.

The review process will include a short period for the authors to view
reviews and respond to technical questions on the submitted work raised by
the reviewers before discussion starts within the Program Committee. The
decision of the Program Committee will be final and cannot be appealed.

For more submission details, please consult
http://ijcai13.org/calls/call_for_papers. Please send enquiries about
paper submissions to Francesca Rossi, Program Chair IJCAI 2013,

IJCAI 2013 AI and Computational Sustainability (AICS) Track: Call for Papers

Computational Sustainability aims to apply computational techniques to the
balancing of environmental, economic, and societal needs, in order to
support sustainable development and a sustainable future. Research in
computational sustainability is inherently interdisciplinary: It brings
together computational sciences and other fields such as environmental
sciences, biology, economics, and sociology. AI techniques and
methodologies can be instrumental in addressing sustainability problems
and questions, for example to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of
the way we manage and allocate our natural and societal resources. This
will also enrich and transform AI, by providing new challenges.

Sustainability domains include the following:

-- Natural resources and the environment (such as water, atmosphere,
oceans, forest, land, etc.)
-- Economics and human behavior (such as well-being, poverty, diseases,
over-population, etc.)
-- Energy resources (for example, renewable energy, smart grid, and so on.)
-- Human-built systems and land use (such as transportation, cities,
buildings, agriculture, etc.)
-- Climate (such as climate prediction, impact of and on climate, etc.)

This special track is dedicated to papers concerned with innovative
notions, models, algorithms, techniques, methodologies, and systems, in
order to address problems in computational sustainability. Papers can
range from
formal analysis to applied research. Papers describing interesting
sustainability problems and data sets, or papers
proposing general challenges and competitions for computational
sustainability, are also welcome.

The AICS track welcomes two types of articles:
-- technical AICS papers, showing how AI can be instrumental in addressing
sustainability questions;
-- data challenge papers, providing the description of a new
sustainability problem as well as the corresponding data set to be made
available to the AI community.

Technical AICS papers must follow the instructions given in the general
call for technical conference papers.
Dataset papers should be up to three pages in length, included figures and
references.
Please indicate that your paper is a dataset paper by selecting this paper
type in the submission site.

There will be specific keywords for the AICS track. When registering a
paper, authors should select at least one keyword from the AICS list and
at least one keyword from the general IJCAI 2013 list.

Submitted papers in the AICS track will be reviewed by qualified reviewers
drawn from a special track committee as well as the general program
committee. AICS papers will be judged based on the usual measures of
quality, with consideration of the relevance to the theme and the
potential impact on sustainability problems.
Submissions to this special track that are deemed not to be relevant may
be considered for review in the general technical papers track at the
discretion of the chairs. Papers are submitted via the same submission Web
site as the main technical track, where the "Special Track on Artificial
Intelligence and Computational Sustainability" option should be selected
after logging in. For more submission details, please consult
http://ijcai13.org/calls/call_for_papers. For questions, please email the
AICS Track Chair, Carla Gomes, at aicschair13@ijcai.org.

Computational Sustainability Awards

IJCAI 2013 is joining with the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) to
promote work at the intersection of computing and sustainability on
principles and applications that address environmental, economic, and
societal needs in support of a sustainable future. An IJCAI 2013 committee
will select outstanding papers in this area to receive CCC travel awards
provided by CCC to the authors of the papers
(http://www.cra.org/ccc/csus.php).

JAIR Award Winning Paper Track

Authors of IJCAI 2013 award winning papers (best paper, best student
paper, etc.) will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers
to the Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research (JAIR) for expedited
review and inclusion in the JAIR Award-Winning Paper Track
(see http://jair.org/awardedpapers.html). Authors of such papers will be
contacted directly by the IJCAI 2013 program chair about this opportunity.
