Formatting guidelines

It is highly recommended to submit papers using the final camera-ready
formatting style, except that author names should be omitted, and
replaced by the tracking number. Submissions must not exceed five pages
in camera-ready format. Submissions of unformatted papers are limited to

6000 words including footnotes, figure captions, tables, appendices, and

bibliography. Each half-page of figures will be counted as 600 words.
(Please note that for some papers five camera-ready pages may be
considerably less than 6000 words in practice.) Overlengthy submissions
will be rejected without review. Authors submitting unformatted papers
must include a word count on their paper.

Guidelines on the format of submissions are available on the ECAI 2002
Style Guide page ( http://www.*-*-*.com/ ).
{*filter*}style files to support formatting of submissions are also
available ( http://www.*-*-*.com/ ).

Final versions of accepted papers will be required to conform strictly
to the formatting requirements specified in the ECAI 2002 Style Guide.
Each accepted paper will be allocated five pages in the proceedings.

Submission procedure

Submission is a two-stage process. Authors are asked to submit a brief
summary of their paper by 18 January 2002, followed by their full paper
before 22 January 2002 (23:59 CET). The strongly preferred submission
method for summaries is to use the web-based summary submission form
( http://www.*-*-*.com/ ). Submitted
summaries will be assigned a unique tracking number that should be
marked on the full paper submission. Authors without access to the web
should send a summary including the title, authors, contact address and
abstract of the paper (maximum 200 words), plus keywords drawn from this

list (plus other key-words if appropriate) to the ECAI 2002 Programme
Chair (by email or postal mail). The summary information and the
tracking number should also be included with the paper itself, on a
separate sheet of paper. Authors not able to use the web-based
submission form may omit the tracking number.

The strongly preferred submission method for full papers is

will be accepted. A free service to convert a number of widely used file

formats to PDF is available at http://www.*-*-*.com/ (the first
three uses of this service are for free). Submissions in hardcopy may
also be made if electronic submission is prob-lematic for the authors.
In that case, six
copies of the paper (each including the summary sheet) should be sent by

postal mail or courier service to the ECAI 2002 Programme Chair, Frank
van Harmelen, at the address below. The deadline for receipt of papers
is 22 January 2002 (23:59 CET) for both electronic and hardcopy
submissions.

Papers received after this date will not be reviewed. Notification of
receipt of full papers will be mailed to the corresponding author soon
after receipt.

Anonymous reviewing process

ECAI 2002 will operate an anonymous reviewing process. Reviewing for
ECAI 2002 will be blind to the identities of the authors and their
institutions. To allow for blind reviewing replace the authors line in
your submission by the unique tracking number assigned by the submission

of the summary form (or leave it empty in case you are not able to use
the web-based summary submission form). Please avoid identifying
self-references. Replace phrases like "We have shown in [n]" by "In [n]
it has been shown ...".

Multiple submissions policy

ECAI 2002 will not accept any paper which at the time of submission is
under review for, or has already been published or accepted for
publication in a journal or another conference. Authors are also
expected not to submit their papers elsewhere during the review period.
These restrictions only apply to journals and conferences and not to
workshops or similar specialised meetings with limited audiences. The
title page should include a statement that "this paper is not under
review or accepted for publication in another conference or journal".

The review process

All submissions will be subject to academic peer review by the ECAI 2002

Programme Committee under the chairmanship of the ECAI 2002 Programme
Committee Chair. The ECAI 2002 Programme Committee Chair has final
authority over the review process and all decisions relating to
acceptance of papers. Review criteria include originality of ideas,
technical soundness, significance of results, and quality of
presentation. Notification of acceptance or rejection of submitted
papers will be mailed to the corresponding author by 22 April 2002.

Awards

The best paper of the conference, as selected by the ECAI 2002 Programme

Committee, will receive a prize sponsored by Elsevier Science. The
authors will also be invited to publish a longer version of the paper in

the Artificial Intelligence journal. The authors of the 10 next best
papers will all be invited to submit a long version of their paper to a
special fast-review track of the Artificial Intelligence journal.

Conference proceedings

The conference proceedings will be published and distributed by IOS
Press on paper and as a CD-ROM. The authors will be responsible for
producing camera-ready copies of papers, conforming to the ECAI 2002
formatting guidelines, for inclusion in the proceedings. The deadline
for receipt of the camera-ready copy is 10 May 2002. Note that at least
one author of each accepted paper is required to attend the conference
to present the paper.

Support for Central and Eastern Europe

ECAI 2002 is dedicated to supporting AI research in Central and Eastern
Europe. A travel grant to attend the conference will be given to one
author of each accepted paper from Central or Eastern Europe. Also,
authors from Central and Eastern Europe are offered the possibility of
pre-reviewing. They can submit their paper anytime after 1 October 2002
to the ECAI 2002 Central and Eastern Europe Chair at the address below.
The paper will then be assigned to a pre-reviewer, who may yield useful
suggestions for the authors. The pre-reviewing is aimed at supporting
authors from Central and Eastern Europe, and is no guarantee of
acceptance of the final paper.

**    PRESTIGIOUS APPLICATIONS OF INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS (PAIS-2002)    **
***********************************************************************

ECAI 2002 is pleased to announce its "Prestigious Applications of
Intelligent Systems" (PAIS-2002) sub-conference. The PAIS-2002 Programme

Committee invites authors to submit application papers.

------------------------------------------------------------
                     IMPORTANT DATES
------------------------------------------------------------
      18 Jan 2002  Deadline for PAIS papers summaries
      22 Jan 2002  Deadline for papers
      22 Apr 2002  Notification of acceptance

  24-26 July 2002  PAIS-2002, Lyon
------------------------------------------------------------

This event, associated with ECAI 2002 is created to specifically
highlight significant successful applications of intelligent system
technology. The purpose of the event is to provide a forum for industry
practitioners to learn about the power and applicability of selected
intelligent system techniques and share experience on the applicability,

development and deployment of intelligent systems in industry. This will

be the largest showcase in Europe of real applications using intelligent

system technology and the ideal place to meet with those working to make

successful intelligent system based applications.

The Prestigious Applications of Intelligent Systems event will present
papers describing successful applications of intelligent systems.
Although associated with ECAI, it has a separate review process
conducted by experts in the application of intelligent system
technologies. Papers are selected to highlight critical areas of success

(and failure) and to present the benefits and lessons of value to other
developers. Submitted papers should make these points clear. Accepted
papers will be published in a special section of the ECAI 2002
proceedings.

Paper submissions to PAIS 2002 will follow exactly the same format and
procedure as ECAI 2002. Papers must respect the formatting and length
restrictions given on page 5, but additionally should be clearly marked
as a submission to PAIS on the first page. Submissions should be made
electronically or in hardcopy to the same addresses and by the same
deadlines as papers submitted to the regular conference. Do not submit
papers directly to the PAIS programme committee. For full details, see:
