The 19th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence: Methodology, Systems, Applications AIMSA 2022

Golden Sands resort, Varna, Bulgaria, September 8th - 10th, 2022

Initiated in 1984, the biennial Artificial Intelligence: Methodology, Systems, Applications (AIMSA) conference is a premier single-track forum for exchanging information and research results on theory and principles of artificial intelligence (AI) along with real-world applications of intelligent systems technology. The conference traditionally brings together researchers and practitioners in all areas of AI from both the academia and industry to meet and share their ideas and experiences and learn about the recent trends and developments in contemporary AI.

The 19th edition of AIMSA will be held in the beautiful Golden Sands resort near Varna, Bulgaria. With its mild climate and excellent opportunities for outdoor activities, water sports and gastronomy, Golden Sands promise to be a wonderful venue for a memorable conference.


The conference welcomes submissions of original, high quality papers in all areas of Artificial Intelligence, including (but not limited to) traditional topics such as the algorithms, implementations and (or) real-world applications of:


Papers have to be submitted electronically (in PDF format) via the submission system: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=aimsa2022

Papers should be written in English. Authors should consult Springer's authors' instructions and use the proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made. If any of the authors contributing to AIMSA 2022 are interested in Open Access or Open Choice, please refer to Springer's webpage for prices and additional information. The publisher would need the invoicing address and the CC-BY licence-to-publish agreement at the same time as the files for the publication.

Submissions should describe an original research. The papers submitted to AIMSA 2022 should not be submitted in parallel to other events nor contain a significant overlap with previously published work.

Notification of receipt and acceptance of papers will be sent to the first author.

All submissions will be subject to a single-blind academic peer review by at least three members of the program committee. Selection criteria include accuracy and originality of ideas, clarity and significance of results, and quality of presentation.

For each accepted paper, at least one author is required to register and attend the conference to present the paper.

The author(s) of the best paper (which will be selected based on the votes of the attendees) of the conference will receive the Best Paper Award during the conference.


The official language of the conference is English.
