As in previous AIME conferences, proposals for the organization of satellite workshops, tutorials, and demos are sought regarding any of the topic areas of the AIME conference. Proposals for tutorials, workshops, and demos should be sent by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Submission Guidelines

Workshop, tutorial, and demo proposal submissions should contain:

  • Title
  • Chair(s): name, affiliation, e-mail address, homepage, and short (one paragraph) biography of each chair, explaining the chair's expertise for the workshop/tutorial/demo
  • Abstract: a summary of max. 200 words describing the purpose of the workshop/tutorial/demo
  • Topics: a list (no longer than half a page) describing the covered topics of interest
  • Motivation (one to three paragraphs): why is the topic timely and of particular interest to the AIME participants?
  • Former workshops, tutorials or demos (if applicable): describe the development of the workshop series over the past 3-5 years. Provide quantitative information on submissions and attendance
  • Format (a tabular schedule or a one paragraph summary): the intended mix of events, such as paper presentations, invited talks, panels, demos, and general discussion
  • Intended length: half-day or full day?
  • Audience: who and how many people are likely to attend?
  • Program Committee: name and affiliations of potential PC members (at least half of them should be confirmed at the time of the proposal)
  • Requirements: audio-visual or technical requirements and special room requirements

We strongly advise to provide more than one chair, preferably originating from different institutions, for adding different perspectives to the topics of the workshop. We will favor workshops presenting an innovative structure and a diverse program that attracts various types of contributions and ensures rich interactions.

Accepted workshops will be required to prepare a workshop webpage containing their call of papers and contributions, and detailed information about the workshop organization and timelines. This webpage will be included in the AIME17 conference webpage. While the local chair will assist with the local organization of the workshop, the organizers of the workshop will be responsible for conducting their own reviewing process, for promoting their workshop, and for preparing electronic proceedings. At least one chair of an accepted workshop will have to attend the workshop in person.

The chairs of each accepted workshop will receive one free registration (conference + one workshop/tutorial day) per workshop. Workshop attendees must register and pay up for the AIME conference and the workshop registration.
