Call for Papers


The 6th Global Conference on Artificial Intelligence (GCAI 2020) will be held in Hangzhou, China, 6-9 April 2020, as part of the Zhejiang Logic for AI Summit (ZjuLogAI 2020). With its special focus theme on “Explainable AI and Responsible AI”, the summit intends to promote the interplay between logical approaches and machine learning based approaches in order to make AI more transparent, responsible and accountable. (GCAI 2020) (ZjuLogAI 2020)


Submission Guidelines

GCAI 2020 accepts submissions of two types:

  • Full paper submissions, which must be original and cannot be submitted simultaneously elsewhere. Full paper submissions must be at most 12 pages long, excluding references. Additional support material may be included in an appendix, which may be considered or ignored by the program committee.
  • Extended abstract submissions, which report on ongoing or preliminary work, or on work that is central to symbolic reasoning and/or machine/deep learning applied to both software and robotic systems, but that has already been submitted or recently published elsewhere as a full paper (in the case of an already published paper, the full version has to be referenced explicitly). Extended abstract submissions must be at most 4 pages long, excluding references.

Both types of submissions must be prepared in LaTeX or Microsoft Word using the EasyChair templates, and uploaded in PDF format. Submissions not complying with these guidelines will be rejected at the discretion of the program committee.

Each submission will be reviewed by at least two reviewers. Abstracts are due on 23 November 2019, full papers and extended abstracts are due on 30 November 2019, and decisions will be made by 20 January 2020.

Submissions: via EasyChair
