Contributions will be selected by a board of reviewers based on significance, technical quality and precision, completeness, and originality. Papers must be written in English and present research not currently published nor submitted elsewhere. Submissions should summarize their finding through a short abstract, clearly state their relation with existing publication, as well as the research question being addressed and the proposed solution. Moreover, contributions should motivate their affinity with the topics of the workshop.
In order to stimulate scientific collaboration, researchers are required to indicate if their data and software is publicly or freely available and where; and if not, why.
Papers must be submitted as a self-contained PDF file. Authors need to prepare their submission following the CEURART 1-column template, available here through Overleaf. Submissions and reviews will be managed via the EasyChair portal (https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=ci4pm2022). At least one author of each accepted paper must participate in the workshop.
The submission will be evaluated through a single-blind peer-review process. This means that authors should indicate their names and affiliations in the submissions.
The CI4PM workshop will accept two formats of submission:
- Full-length papers: this format is ideal for original research paper, survey paper, and case study papers. Full-length papers are limited to a maximum of 12 pages, including figures, tables, references, and appendices. At the event, full-length papers will we presented in a plenary session with talks of approximately 15 minutes, followed by a Q&A section; authors will be required to prepare a deck of slides for presentation.
- Extended Abstracts: this shorter format is ideal for position papers, idea papers, and work-in-progress reports. Extended abstract will be selected with particular attention to their potential to stimulate fruitful scientific dialogue and/or debate. Extended abstracts are limited to a maximum of 2 pages, including figures, tables, references, and appendices. At the event, extended abstracts will be presented through a poster session; authors will be required to prepare and print a poster for presentation.
Both full-length papers and extended abstract will be submitted for digital publication in an open-access CEUR volume (http://ceur-ws.org/).
Authors of all full-length papers accepted in the seminar will receive an invitation to submit an extended version of their manuscript to a special issue for the Elsevier's journal Engineering Applications of Artificial Intelligence (Q1, IF 6.212, SJR 1.11): https://www.journals.elsevier.com/engineering-applications-of-artificial-intelligence
