Call for Papers
we publish in
The 7th conference on Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language invites everybody interested in intellectual technologies, both from academic institutes and innovative companies. The conference aimed to bring together experts in the areas of text mining, speech technologies, dialogue systems, information retrieval, machine learning, artificial intelligence and robotics; to create a platform for sharing experience, extending contacts and searching for possible collaboration.


We accept Full Papers (up to 12 pages) and Short Papers (6 pages). Full papers should describe original, complete, previously unpublished research; these papers will be presented during the conference as oral presentations. Short Papers describe research in progress or negative results. The papers must be written in English. All submitted papers will be peer reviewed. All papers will be reviewed by at least 3 members of the program committee. This year we will use a double-blind review scheme. Please anonymize your papers when submitting for initial review.

At least one author of accepted long and short papers must register for the conference and present the paper.

All types of papers should be formatted accordingly to the Springer LNCS style. Although Springer offers both LaTeX style files and Word templates, we highly encourage the authors to use LaTeX, especially for texts containing several formulae.
