Submission and Participation

News: Transferred papers expected on July 11

We invite interested researchers to submit papers on any computational aspect of preference handling to the 15th Multidisciplinary Workshop on Advances in Preference Handling (M-PREF 2024), to be held in Santiago de Compostela on 20 October 2024 in conjunction with ECAI 2024. Papers should be formatted according to the ECAI formatting instructions and not exceed 7 pages (plus 1 extra page for references) and submitted via ChairingTool. Supplementary material such as a technical appendix or code and data is not required.

The purpose of workshop presentations is to get early feedback on new ideas and to stimulate discussions between researchers interested in preference handling. As such, there will be no formal proceedings, but we may post accepted papers on the workshop website for the benefit of the workshop participants if the authors agree to this and the paper has not already been published.

Original submissions: Submissions about unpublished ideas will be reviewed by a double-blind process and should be anonymous.

Multiple submissions: Authors who are seeking a broader forum for already published work and who are interested in giving a presentation to the workshop’s audience may submit their work non-anonymously while indicating where this work has been published. We will only accept work which has been published in the last calendar year (e.g., ECAI 2023, AAAI 2024, and any conference held after May 2023).

Transferred papers: In addition to regular paper submissions, we also consider accepting papers rejected from the main conference. Decisions about acceptance of these transferred papers will be based on the reviews of the ECAI PC. Please submit papers on a special ECAI website and ChairingTool.
