Best papers go AIJ
An agreement with the Artificial Intelligence Journal has been reached such that award winning papers from the conference and selected runners-up will be nominated for "fast track" review in the AI journal.  Papers submitted to the AI journal need to be revised to meet the journal's policy (see specifically on "completeness" but there is no fixed requirement for articles to be substantially extended (though they often are).


The biennial European Conference  on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI) is Europe's premier  archival venue for presenting  scientific results in AI.  Organised by the European  Coordinating Committee for AI (ECCAI), the ECAI conference provides an opportunity for researchers to present and hear about the very best research in contemporary AI. As well as a full  programme   of  technical  papers,  ECAI'14   will  include  the Prestigious Applications of Intelligent Systems conference (PAIS), the Starting AI Researcher Symposium  (STAIRS), the International Web Rule Symposium (RuleML) and an extensive programme of  workshops, tutorials,  and invited  speakers.  

ECAI'14 will be held in the beautiful and historic city of Prague, the capital  of  the Czech  Republic.   With  excellent opportunities  for sightseeing and  gastronomy, Prague promises  to be a  wonderful venue for a memorable conference.

The “Mother of Towns”, “The Golden City”, or “The City of a Hundred Spires”, these are just a few of the many attributes that the Czech metropolis nestling above the river Vltava has earned for itself. Prague as a major destination for visitors arriving in the Czech Republic, with its appeal of architectural monuments of all styles, the traditional hospitality of its people and the excellent beer served in Czech pubs, as well as the remarkable mix of Czech, German and Jewish cultures, is considered one of the most beautiful cities, and not just in Europe.
