Co-located with the 14th Conference of the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence (AI*IA 2015)
Ferrara, Italy, 22 September 2015
This event follows the series of the RCRA (Knowledge Representation and Automated Reasoning) annual meetings, held since 1994. The success of the previous events shows that RCRA is becoming a major forum for exchanging ideas and proposing experimentation methodologies for algorithms in artificial intelligence.
In recent years, research in AI has more and more focussed on experimental evaluation of algorithms, the development of suitable methodologies for experimentation and analysis, the study of languages and the implementation of systems for the definition and solution of problems.
Scope of the workshop is fostering the cross-fertilisation of ideas stemming from different areas, proposing benchmarks for new challenging problems, comparing models and algorithms from an experimental viewpoint, and, in general, comparing different approaches with respect to efficiency, problem modelling, and ease of development.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Authors are invited to submit either original (full or short) papers. Submission of papers already accepted/appeared on other conference proceedings is permitted.
At the time of submission, authors are requested to clearly specify whether their submission is original or already published elsewhere.
Publications showing negative results are welcome, provided that the approach was original and very promising in principle, the experimentation was well-conducted, the results obtained were unforeseeable and gave important hints in the comprehension of the target problem, helping other researchers to avoid unsuccessful paths.
Workshop submissions must be in PDF format, do not exceed 15 (for full papers) or 8 (for short papers) pages, and should be written in LaTeX, using the LNCS style.
RCRA 2015 uses EasyChair for the submission of contributions.
Papers can be submitted through this page: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=rcra2015 (closed)
Submissions will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee.
Workshop program committee
Accepted original papers will be published online, as an issue of the CEUR-WS workshop proceeding series.
Workshop post-proceedings will appear in a special issue of the Fundamenta Informaticae journal, provided that a sufficient amount of high quality papers is collected.
Extended and revised versions of the papers accepted and presented to the workshop will enter a second review formal process in order to meet the expected quality of a journal.
In case of need, the workshop co-chairs can be contacted by sending an email to: rcra2015[AT]easychair[DOT]org
