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 (AI). Authors are requested to send original unpublished works, which describe relevant research about topics related to Artificial Intelligence from all points of view: formal, methodological, technical or applied.

Our Mission

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.

Within CAEPIA, the Doctoral Consortium is organized, a forum for doctoral students to interact with other researchers by discussing their thesis project.

In order to highlight the practical importance of the AI, the third competition on mobile Apps with AI techniques is being held, together with a dissemination video competition.

In addition, this edition of CAEPIA will feature outstanding papers (Key Works) already published in journals or forums of recognized prestige.

In the 18th edition of CAEPIA, several federated conferences and workshops are held, which will maintain their own programme committee and distribute their respective calls for papers.

  • CAEPIA 2018 | XVIII Edition Main Session
  • XIX Spanish Congress on Fuzzy Logic and Technologies (ESTYLF 2018)
  • XIII Spanish Congress on Metaheuristics, Evolutionary and Bioinspired Algorithms (MAEB 2018)
  • IX Symposium of Theory and Applications of Data Mining (TAMIDA 2018)
  • V Congress of the Spanish Society for Video Game Science (CoSECiVi 2018)
  • IV Symposium on Information Fusion and ensembles (FINO 2018)
  • II Workshop in Big Data and Scalable Data Analytics (BigDADE 2018)
  • I Workshop in Deep Learning (DEEPL 2018)
  • I Workshop on Applications of Artificial Intelligence for Industry 4.0 (IndustrIA 4.0)
  • I Workshop on Data Science in Social Media (CiDReS 2018)
  • I Workshop of Spanish AI Research Groups in Biomedicine (IABiomed 2018)

CAEPIA is open to the proposal of new workshops, tutorials and other events (see more information).

Types of Contributions
