CAEPIA 2011 – Call for Papers

Conference of the Spanish Association for Artificial Intelligence (CAEPIA)

November, 7-11 2011




The Conference of the Spanish Association for Artificial Intelligence (CAEPIA) is an international
forum open to all researchers. In its program CAEPIA’11 includes
workshops, tutorials and presentations of works related to
Artificial Intelligence. As in previous editions, the objectives are to facilitate the dissemination of
new ideas and experiences, strengthen links between different research groups
involved, promote the transfer of knowledge between researchers and new consolidated groups
and help disseminate new developments to society.

CAEPIA will also be open to pre-doctoral work, and there will be a special call for this
type of work through the Doctoral Consortium. This event is specially designed for
the interaction of doctoral students and senior researchers.

To achieve the proposed objectives, authors are requested to send original unpublished works,
that describe relevant research about topics related with Artificial Intelligence from all
points of view: formal, methodological, technical or applied. Works can be submitted in Spanish
or English in LNCS format (Spinger). CAEPIA’11 will use a double blind-review process. The authors
will remove their names from the submitted papers and must take responsibility for the
originality of the work and send it in the proper format.


– CAEPIA papers (Main track): Submitted technical papers must be no longer than 10 pages,
including all figures and references, and must be formatted according to LNCS guidelines.
The submitted paper will represent original research, with solid, well-founded or
demonstrable results on any of the conference topics. Accepted papers will be
assigned a 15 or 20 minutes slot for oral presentation at the conference. Submitted papers
will be assigned to an area chair and reviewed by at least three program committee members.

– Doctoral consortium papers: We encourage the submissions of preliminary works from PhD students.
These works will be presented in special sessions at the conference. The objective is to foster
a fruitful debate between the candidate and the audience. The length of these papers should not
exceed 4 pages and will be orally presented during 15 minutes. The authors of accepted papers
as pre-doctoral work will enjoy special benefits to attend the conference.

web page:


Accepted paper will be published in the two volumes of CAEPIA proceedings that will
be given to all the attendants to the conference. The two volumes will be as
– One volume published by Springer-Verlag in its Lecture Notes in Artificial
Intelligence series, will contain a selection of the best papers accepted by the
program committee. In order to be included in this volume papers should be submitted
in English.
– One volume published by the Spanish Association for Artificial Intelligence that will
contain all the accepted papers not included in the previous volume. This includes
CAEPIA paper and Doctoral Consortium papers.


CAEPIA 2011 is organized around ten key areas or tracks, each managed by a member of
the senior programme committee member. Below a description of these areas can be found.
