SAIS Workshop 2014

The 28th annual workshop of the Swedish Artificial Intelligence Society (SAIS) will take place in Stockholm, Sweden on May 22-23, 2014. The SAIS workshop provides an ideal forum for contacts among AI researchers and practitioners in Sweden and neighbouring countries, as well as for establishing links with related research disciplines and industry.

The purpose of the SAIS workshop is:

  • To give PhD students an opportunity to present their research to a friendly and knowledgeable audience and receive valuable feedback.
  • To provide a forum for established researchers and practitioners to present past and current research contributing to the state of the art of AI research and applications.
  • To provide an informal social event where AI researchers and practitioners can meet.

In addition to the regular presentations there will be invited talks and a presentation by the winner of the SAIS Master's Thesis Award.

We invite two types of contributions to the SAIS workshop:

  • Original research papers. We explicitly encourage submission of relevant papers that are currently under review.
  • Position papers from research groups or companies.
    The main purpose of position papers is to communicate research
    activities of individuals and groups in Sweden and neighbouring
    countries. Such papers should describe current research/application
    challenges or current research/application endeavours.

All papers will be carefully reviewed by the program committee.
Accepted papers will be published in the electronic workshop
proceedings. Copyright stays with the authors and authors of
previously unpublished papers accepted to the SAIS workshop are
encouraged to submit these to other workshops or conferences. Before
putting together the final electronic proceeding we all ask all authors
to confirm that they want to have their papers included in the proceedings. Before this, accepted papers will be available at a password protected webpage.

All submissions should be in PDF and must be written in English. All papers should be submitted through EasyChair.

  • Original papers are not to exceed ten (10) pages, including all
    figures and references, in two-column A4 article format with 10pt font (detailed instructions are provided on the workshop webpage). Papers may be accepted for oral presentation or as posters.
  • Position papers are limited to six (6) pages.

To allow attending people a chance to plan for traveling we will perform the review process in two steps. All papers will undergo a first screening by the organizing committee to give a notification of acceptance approximately a week after submission. Please clearly mark papers that are still work in progress (and thus not ready for the initial screening) in the abstract field (for example by leaving it blank). The second round of the review process will happen in the standard fashion after the submission deadline after which detailed feedback and information about type of presentation (oral or poster) will be provided.
