Call for Papers

Final Call for Papers for KI2022: We also accept submissions for which no abstract has been received in advance!

KI2022 takes place in Trier, Germany, September 19 – September 23, 2022. KI2022 is the 45th edition of the German conference on Artificial Intelligence organized in cooperation with the Artificial Intelligence Section (FBKI, in German: GI-Fachbereich Künstliche Intelligenz) within the German Informatics Society (GI e.V.). KI is one of the major European AI conferences and traditionally brings together academia and industry from all areas of AI, providing an ideal place for exchanging news and research results on theory and applications. The technical program of KI2022 comprises paper presentations as well as tutorials and workshops. Additionally, early career presentation within a doctoral consortium as well as an exhibition for practical tools and applications are planned for the onsite conference in Trier. 

Submission Guidelines

We invite papers written in English and formatted according to the Springer LNCS style, in the following three categories:

Full technical papers (12 pages max., excluding references)

These papers are expected to report on new research that makes a substantial technical contribution to the field. Additional details may be included in an appendix, which, however, will be read at the discretion of the PC.

Technical communications (6 pages max., excluding references)

Technical communications can report on research in progress or other issues of interest to the AI community. Examples of work suitable for technical communication paper submissions include: novel ideas whose scope is not large enough for a full paper; important implementation techniques; novel interesting benchmark problems; short experimental studies; interesting applications that are not yet completely solved or analyzed; position or challenge papers. Technical communication submissions are especially invited for software demonstration or PhD work in progress.

Abstracts of papers accepted at other AI-Conferences  (3 pages max., excluding references)

Papers accepted at (most recent editions of) major AI conferences are welcome to bring together German members of the international AI community. Abstracts of accepted papers will be evaluated based on the ranking of the venue it has been accepted for. We especially invite abstract of papers from A or A* ranked AI conferences.


Submission should be made through the EasyChair conference management system. The submission link is:

Full papers and technical communications will be subject to blind peer review based on the standard criteria of relevance, significance of results, originality of ideas, soundness, and quality of the presentation. Papers accepted in this process will be published in the main conference proceedings, published by Springer in the LNAI series and will be presented at the conference. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference and present the contribution. The 3-page paper abstracts will be bundled and included in a preface or appendix section of the conference proceedings.
