of workshops and tutorials.

KI 2012 will take place in Saarbrücken, Germany, September 24-27, 2012,
and is a premier forum for exchanging news and research results on
theory and applications of all aspects on AI.  The conference invites
significant, original, and previously unpublished research from all
areas of AI, its fundamentals, its algorithms, its history, and its

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Knowledge Acquisition, Representation, Reasoning and Ontologies
* Combinatorial Search, Configuration, Design and Deduction
* Natural Language Processing, Statistical NLP, Semantics
* Planning and Scheduling; Spatial and Temporal Reasoning
* Reasoning under Uncertainty, Probabilistic Inferences
* Non-Monotonic Reasoning and Default Logics

We especially welcome poster and demo contributions providing novel
insights on the interplay of AI and the real world, as well as
contributions that bring useful computational technologies from other
areas of computer science into AI.

Submission Guidelines
Poster and demo contributions must be submitted as extended abstracts
of 3-4 pages in Springer LNCS format, written in English.

Suitable topics for poster contributions include, but are not limited
to: novel, but not yet fully developed ideas that are of interest for a
broader AI audience; implementation techniques and novel interesting
benchmark problems; experimental studies; real world applications of AI
research; etc.

Demo contributions should be system or tool descriptions
that provide some background about the applied AI technologies. We
particularly encourage demonstrations that show innovative AI techniques
at work and allow for user interaction. Demo contributions may also be
submitted by larger research groups as well as commercial organizations.

Submitted poster and demo contributions will be subject to peer review,
based on standard criteria such as relevance and significance,
originality of ideas, technical soundness, and quality of presentation.

The abstracts of accepted poster/demo contributions will be distributed
in electronic form at the conference site and count as refereed, but
non-archival publication. At least one author of each accepted poster or
demo must register for the conference and present the work during the
poster and demo session at KI 2012. The poster and demo session will
take place after the welcome reception on September 24.

Authors of long/short papers that are under current review for the main
conference are also invited to present their work as a poster or
demonstration.  All accepted conference papers are eligible for
poster/demo presentations. Authors of rejected conference papers are
encouraged to resubmit their work as a poster/demo contribution.

Important Dates
Submission deadline for poster/demo abstracts: July 9, 2012
Notification: August 9, 2012
Deadline for camera-ready copy: August 31, 2012
