Call for Workshop Proposals
We invite proposals for workshops to be held as part of the pre-conference programme during the first two days of the conference. Proposals from all subfields of AI and organisers of all levels of seniority are welcome.
Most workshops will follow the classical format of presentations of peer-reviewed papers followed by discussion, but other formats (e.g., AI competitions) and entirely new ideas are also welcome. Whatever the format, all workshops should be interactive events and ample time should be allocated to discussion. The typical duration for a workshop is one full day, but two-day or half-day workshops can also be accommodated.
Responsibilities of workshop organisers include setting up a website for their workshop shortly after acceptance, distributing a Call for Papers (in case paper submissions are sought), handling submissions (possibly using EasyChair, though ECAI does not provide an EasyChair licence), publishing the workshop programme in a timely manner, arranging for publication of the workshop proceedings (if publication is desired), and running the workshop on site during the conference.

Review Transfer Option
In addition to regular paper submissions, workshop organisers may also consider the option of accepting papers rejected from the main conference, doing so purely on the basis of the reviews written for the main conference (which can be made available by the PC chairs in anonymised form).
Notifications for the main conference will be sent on 4 July 2024, so workshop organisers could invite potential authors to submit a request for their rejected paper to be considered by 11 July 2024, and workshop organisers could then make a decision by 18 July 2024 (thereby still leaving sufficient time between notification and the early registration deadline).
Workshop organisers wishing to pursue this option should advertise this opportunity on their website and in their Call for Papers, and they should notify the workshop chairs by 1 July 2024.
Each workshop proposal should consist of a single PDF file and include the following information:
Workshop title and acronym
Names, affiliations, and contact details of all workshop organisers
Primary contact person from the organising team
One paragraph about each organiser (scientific profile, previous events organised)
Workshop description, including:
Brief introduction of the workshop
List of relevant topic areas
Intended format and duration (between half-day and two days)
Indicate whether the workshop is planned to have any activities other than contributed papers, such as invited talks, panels, posters.
Audience: research groups working in the field, a tentative list of potentially interested participants, expected numberof submissions
Previous editions of the workshop if applicable; related workshops at other venues during the past three years, and how those relateto the proposed workshop
List of potential workshop PC members, and reviewing format (single/double-blind, number of reviews per submission, any other relevant information)

All workshop participants, including organisers, must register for the pre-conference programme and pay the registration fee. However, ECAI can provide up to two free registrations for the pre-conference programme per workshop, which can be allocated at the discretion of the workshop organisers (e.g., to invited speakers, organisers, or junior participants).
Please understand that we may have to cancel a workshop if not enough participants register or if deadlines are not met. We are aiming for at least 10 registered participants by the early registration deadline.
In case of questions, please contact the workshop chairs, Noa Agmon and Michela Milano, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
