Procedure workflow

The procedure that will be followed from abstract submission to paper publication consist of 3 steps illustrated below:

  1. Abstract submission
    • abstract evaluation
    • abstract accept/reject
  2. Workshop paper submission (optional)
    • paper evaluation
    • paper accept/reject
    • paper publication.
  3. Presentation at the workshop

The due dates of each step, are presented in Important dates.


Please use the ‘Register’ button (on the top right menu of the website) to register to the workshop submission system. During the registration, you will be prompted to submit the abstract of your work. At the same step you can upload the whole paper or skip it and upload it after the acceptance of your work (recommended). These submissions will be peer reviewed by the PC members, aiming to have at least 2 reviews per paper.

The abstract should be up to 500 words plus references.

Paper Submission – Proceedings

All accepted abstracts can submit a Research Track paper. These submissions will be peer reviewed by the PC members, aiming to have at least 2 reviews per paper.

All the accepted Research Track papers will be included in the Conference Proceedings, which will be published by ACM (International Conference Proceedings Series) and be available through the ACM Digital Library (approval pending).  Extended versions of selected high-quality Research Track papers will be considered for possible publication in a special issue of an AI Journal.

All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed on the basis of technical quality, relevance to the topics of the conference, originality, significance, and clarity. The review process for the Research Track papers will be double-blind, hence authors should take care not to reveal their identities. 

In order to prepare their manuscripts, authors of both tracks should follow the ACM SIG Proceedings guidelines, available at

AINST 2022 accepts submissions of :

  1. full papers, 6-10 pages
  2. short papers, 2-4 pages (early work, position papers, tools and demos)

Submitting a paper to the conference means that in case of acceptance, at least one author is required to fully register as “Author” for the conference in order for the paper to be included in the proceedings. Moreover, it is expected that at least one author will attend the conference to present the paper.

All accepted full papers will be presented in an oral presentation session, whereas for short papers there will be a pitching session where authors can give a very short  flash presentation that highlights what their poster is about and why it will be great one to come and get more information about it.

We may have a best paper selection process and award, if deemed appropriate.
