About us

The Conference of the Spanish Association for Artificial Intelligence (CAEPIA) is a biennial forum open to worldwide researchers to present and discuss their last scientific and technological advances in Artificial Intelligence. The 18th edition, CAEPIA'18, will be held in Granada, Spain, from the 23th to the 26th October, 2018. Organized by the Andalusian Research Institute in Data Science and Computational Intelligence (DaSCI).

As in previous editions, the objectives are: to facilitate the dissemination of new ideas and experiences, to strengthen the links among the different research groups involved, to promote knowledge transfer between recent researchers and consolidated groups, and to help spread new developments to society. To achieve the proposed objectives, authors are requested to send original unpublished works, which describe relevant research about topics related to Artificial Intelligence from all points of view: formal, methodological, technical or applied.


  • Honorary Chair: Enric Trillas, University of Oviedo
  • General Chair: Francisco Herrera, University of Granada
  • Chairman of the Organization Committee: Sergio Damas, University of Granada


En Granada se limita el tiempo, el espacio, el mar, la luna, las distancias… hay necesidad de limitar, de domesticar los términos inmensos - Federico García Lorca
