[DMANET] CfP: GCAI 2019 (5th Global Conference on Artificial Intelligence)

Apologies for cross-posting.
Please forward to interested parties.

CfP: GCAI 2019 (5th Global Conference on Artificial Intelligence)

The 5th Global Conference on Artificial Intelligence (GCAI 2019) will
be held in Bolzano, 17-19 September 2019. The core objective of GCAI
2019 is to bring together the two main souls of AI, namely symbolic
reasoning and machine/deep learning, applied to both software and
robotic systems.

GCAI 2019 will be held as part of the Bolzano Rules and Artificial
INtelligence Summit (BRAIN 2019). With a special focus theme on
"beneficial AI", BRAIN 2019 aims at presenting the latest advancements
in AI and rules and their adoption in IT systems towards improving key
fields such as environment, health and societies. Submissions that
address this theme within the general topics of GCAI are especially


GCAI 2019 accepts submissions of two types:
- Full paper submissions, which must be original and cannot be
submitted simultaneously elsewhere. Full paper submissions must be at
most 12 pages long, excluding references. Additional support material
may be included in an appendix, which may be considered or ignored by
the program committee.
- Extended abstract submissions, which report on ongoing or
preliminary work, or on work that is central to symbolic reasoning
and/or machine/deep learning applied to both software and robotic
systems, but that has already been submitted or recently published
elsewhere as a full paper (in the case of an already published paper,
the full version has to be referenced explicitly). Extended abstract
submissions must be at most 4 pages long, excluding references.

Both types of submissions must be prepared in LaTeX or Microsoft Word
using the EasyChair templates, and uploaded in PDF format. Submissions
not complying with these guidelines will be rejected at the discretion
of the program committee.

Each submission will be reviewed by at least two reviewers.
Abstracts are due on 14 June 2019, full papers and extended abstracts
are due on 21 June 2019, and decisions will be made by 26 July 2019.

Submissions: via EasyChair
