ECAI 2020

The biennial European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI) is 
Europe's premier venue for presenting scientific results in AI. Under 
the general theme "Paving the way towards Human-Centric AI", the 24th 
edition of ECAI will be held in Santiago de Compostela, a UNESCO's World 
Heritage City which is the destination of unique Routes that cross all 
Europe since the Middle Ages. The conference dates are 10-12 June 2020, 
with the workshops taking place on 8-9 June. Save these dates!

We had a record number of submissions for the Main Conference this year. 
We had more than 1700 abstract submissions and we reviewed 1443 papers 
of which 1363 full papers and 80 2-page highlight papers. Due to space 
limitations we were only able to accept 365 full-papers and 36 2-page 
highlight papers, yielding an acceptance rate of 26.8% for full-papers 
and 45% for 2-page highlight papers. The competition was particularly 
stiff this year due to the very large number of submissions (more than 
the double of the last ECAI stand-alone editions).


In addition to the outstanding technical program, ECAI 2020 comprises an 
ample set of activities, including:

+ Invited plenary keynote lectures
