Paper submission

The Workshop on Configuration 2012 continues the series of twelve successful workshops started at the AAAI'96 Fall Symposium and continued on IJCAI, AAAI, and ECAI since 1999. Beside researchers from a variety of different fields, past events also attracted a significant number of industrial participants from major configurator vendors like Tacton, SAP, Oracle, Encoway, or ILOG, as well as from end-users like Siemens, HP, or DaimlerChrysler.

Specifically, but not only, the participation of experts in technologies related with configuration knowledge, constraints, OWL, but also MOF, MDA, UML is highly welcome. Especially young researchers and master students are encouraged to submit their results.

If you would like to participate, consider submittion of a full paper of no more than 8 pages. Position statements and problem instances can be submitted as short papers limited to 4 pages. Both regular and short papers should be formatted according to ECAI style guidelines. Submission is only electronic using the EasyChair paper submission site.

Each submission will be subject to peer review by at least two members of the program committee. Refereeing criteria are relevance to workshop topics, significance and novelty of the research, technical content, discussion on relation to previous work and clarity of presentation. A contribution submitted as a long paper may be accepted as a short paper, if the program committee considers it to be inadequate for a long paper but to present an important issue.

At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register at the workshop to present the paper.
