Author Information

Since AAAI-MAKE is a dedicated symposium for combining machine learning and knowledge engineering, the contributions and challenges should address hybrid (artificial) intelligence settings. Besides, authors shall follow the instructions below on this page.

  • Challenge papers (5 to 9 pages) should describe future societal, environmental, business, or scientific challenges requiring hybrid AI and possibly provide datasets or ontologies. In a follow-up event, solutions shall be proposed for these challenges.
  • Position/full papers (10 to 16 pages) and short papers (5 to 9 pages) can include recent or ongoing research, business cases, application scenarios, and surveys.
  • Industrial side-tutorial event or demonstration proposals (less than 5 pages) should have a focus on business or research related to the symposium topics, excluding product advertising.
  • Discussion proposals (1 to 2 pages) should contain a description of the specific topic with a list of questions and a discussion moderator.

After an acceptance notification, authors must grant publication permission prior to the symposium. At least one author of each accepted submission must be registered for AAAI-MAKE 2023 and present the paper at the symposium that the publication will be part of the symposium proceedings.

Please note that given the shorter time frame set by the AAAI due to some COVID-19 aftermaths, the single-blinded review will be based on extended abstracts of challenge, position, full or short papers. A successfully accepted abstract will result in an invitation to participate, a request to register for the symposium, and the requirement to submit the camera-ready paper beforehand.

1. Writing—Layout

All submissions must reflect the formatting instructions provided in the Author Kit, which is based on the CEUR-ART style containing a LaTeX template.

2. Writing—Title and Metadata

The submission title must be in emphasizing style. Information on correctly emphasizing titles in English are available in the Wiki of MusicBrainz. Alternatively, some online title capitalisation tools such as «The Capitalizer» (limited basic rules; ads-free) or the «Title Case Converter» (extensive rules; ads) may be used. The indication of whether the contribution is a position or not, should not be part of the title; instead, this should be mentioned in the abstract or introductory section of the paper. The title and all further metadata, including all author’s names and affiliations, must be correct and consistent with the entries in EasyChair.

3. Writing—Copyright

Since the AAAI no longer produces technical reports for its symposia or workshops, there is no copyright transfer required anymore. Authors may not change or remove the following footnote:

Stolle, F. van Harmelen (Eds.), Proceedings of the AAAI 2023 Spring Symposium on Challenges Requiring the Combination of Machine Learning and Knowledge Engineering (AAAI-MAKE 2023), Hyatt Regency, San Francisco Airport, California, USA, March 27-29, 2023.

4. Writing—Extended Abstract

An extended abstract (1 to 2 pages) is not simply a longer paper abstract. Please consider the basic structure:

  • Introduction with the problem contextualized and the nature of research gaps are described
  • Related work presenting the directly relevant background and shows the novelty
  • Method including research goals, procedures, methods, models and/or data used, provided and/or proposed
  • References used in the extended abstract and/or to be used in the camera-ready paper

5. Submission—Extended Abstract

All submissions must be submitted through EasyChair, including the correct and consistent names and affiliations of all authors.

6. Review

Extended abstracts of challenge, position, full and short papers will be peer-reviewed by the program committee to ensure academic integrity—the symposium chairs will disclose the decision and the reviews to the authors. The industrial side-tutorial event, demonstration, and discussion proposals will be reviewed and selected by the organizing committee.

7. Writing—Camera-ready Version

Authors should address the reviewer’s comments on the extended abstract as best possible, and incorporate this into the writing of the camera-ready version of the paper.

8. Submission—Camera-ready Version

Authors must submit the camera-ready version by updating the file (paper upload) in EasyChair.

9. Proceedings and Publication Permission

Accepted and camera-ready papers shall be published on the established open-access proceedings site CEUR-WS. Following the CEUR-WS conditions, CEUR-ART style template-based (Author Kit) papers with 10 to 16 pages will be published as regular papers; papers consisting of 5 to 9 pages will be published as short papers; abstracts for posters and demonstration will be published as abstracts.

The authors must grant non-exclusive and irrevocable publication permission to the AAAI-MAKE 2023 editors/publishers by completing, signing, and uploading the CEUR-WS publication permission form (author agreement).
