The accepted papers of this conference (not the posters), supplemented by invited papers, are forthcoming in: Vincent C. Müller (ed.), Fundamental Issues of Artificial Intelligence (Synthese Library). Berlin: Springer.

- Update (July 2014): Reviewing and revising is done and the papers have been submitted to Springer. -


Full papers will be re-submitted on EasyChair, and peer reviewed a 2nd time. Submission to Springer is taken care of by the editor.

We will use the  "Springer SocPsych" Author-Date reference style (sample), which is basically "APA 6th". (Program files: EndNote, Zotero; BibTeX.)

Papers should not exceed 7500 words - less is more!

Detailed technical guidelines and templates (Word/LaTeX) are on Our papers are ‘chapters’ of the volume, so relevant points are on We will not make an index. The usage of Springer's (antique) templates is not mandatory. Alternatively, a) for Word, use the template or a blank document and with the default settings and styles (e.g., for heading styles, lists, footnotes, etc.) - but do use styles rather than formatting by hand. b) For LaTeX Aaron Sloman has kindly provided additional detailed instructions.

A complete submission will comprise:

  1. Paper with references in pdf
  2. Paper with references in source file (Word or LaTeX) - 'attached' in EasyChair
  3. Abstract (150-250 words, no references) - direct text in EasyChair and in the paper
  4. 3-5 Keywords - direct in EasyChair, not in the paper
  5. Permissions to copyrighted material, if applicable

The final formattting is done by Springer. This is called ""Submit a New Version" on EasyChair - please do not use the 'proceedings' submission!

Call for Papers

We request anonymous abstracts of 600-1000 words (excl. references) in plain text or PDF, plus a short abstract of up to 120 words. Accepted papers will be presented at the conference and published in the proceedings. (We plan to provide a copy of the proceedings to the corresponding author.) Submission and presentation at the conference do not entail an obligation of the author(s) to publish in the conference proceedings.

All submissions will be reviewed double-blind, by at least two members of the programme committee.

Submission online at EasyChair:

Technical note: The EasyChair system will ask you for an "abstract" and a "paper". For us, "abstract" refers to the short abstract (up to 120 words) in plain text, while "paper" refers to the long abstract (600-1000 words), which can be submitted as a PDF or plain text. Accordingly, please do not use the check-box "Abstract Only". (The abbreviation "Corr. Auth." stands for "corresponding author".)
