research ideas related to any of the topics above. Student abstracts
will be posted on the workshop website and a selection of them will be
awarded a scholarship to attend the workshop and ECAI.

Papers should be submitted via the Easychair submission


For student abstracts, please indicate it at submission time by adding
“student abstract” to the keyword list.

All submissions should be formatted using the ECAI 2012 style file
that can be found at:


As the reviewing will be blind, papers must not include the authors’
names and affiliations. Submissions should be in English and should
not have been published previously. If essentially identical papers
are submitted to other conferences or workshops as well, this fact
must be indicated at submission time.

The submission deadline is 23:59 CET on June 20, 2012 (for papers)
and June 25, 2012 (for students abstracts).

Voice your ideas

The contributions and the outcome of the discussion that will follow
the paper presentation will be considered for inclusion in the roadmap
that the EternalS coordination action is designing for the European
community: https://www.eternals.eu

The roadmap will be an input to the European Community for the definition
of the Work Programme of 2013.
