KI 2012, the 35th German Conference on Artificial Intelligence, invites
workshop and tutorial proposals from all areas of AI, its fundamentals,
its algorithms, and its applications.
Together with the main conference, we plan to organize a small number of
high-quality workshops and tutorials that any participant, whether
graduate student or experienced researcher and practitioner, may attend.
Workshops will be free of charge for conference participants and will be
held on the first day of the conference. We are interested in
submissions of full-day (6 hours) and half-day (3 hours) workshops. They
should preferably be given in English.
Tutorials will be free of charge for conference participants and will

the conference. We are soliciting proposals for full-day (6 hours) and
half-day (3 hours) tutorials as well as mini-tutorials (1.5 hours).
Tutorials should preferably be given in English.
The KI 2012 conference organizers will provide logistic support and
meeting rooms for the workshops and tutorials and will determine the
