MICAI is a high-level peer-reviewed international conference covering all areas of Artificial Intelligence, traditionally held in Mexico. All previous editions of MICAI were published in Springer LNAI (N 1793, 2313, 2972, 3789, 4293, 4827, 5317, 5845). Each of the last recent MICAI events (2006, 2007, 2008, 2009) received over 400 submissions, in average, from over 40 countries. The acceptance rate has been around 26%. The conference is organized by the Mexican Society for Artificial Intelligence (SMIA). The scientific program includes keynote lectures, paper presentations, tutorials, panels, and workshops.

Papers accepted for oral presentation will be published by Springer in a volume of the series Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence. Special session papers will be published separately (to be confirmed). Best papers awards will be granted to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd places of each category. Special issues of journals are anticipated for best papers.

The conference is hosted by the Autonomous University of Hidalgo State (Universidad Autónoma del Estado de Hidalgo), Pachuca (1 hour by regular bus from Mexico City).

We solicit original research papers written in English. The submissions must not have been previously published or be under review for another conference or journal. Only complete and finished papers will be reviewed, not abstracts. After your paper is accepted you will have a chance to improve it according the comments of the reviewers, but the reviewers will assume that the text that they are reading is the text that is to be published, with the only changes they explicitly request (as opposed to reviewing a draft or abstract). In particular, the papers must be submitted in the required format. We reserve the right to reject without review the submissions that do not follow the format guidelines.

Size. Registration fee for authors includes publication of a paper of up to 12 pages. For each page that exceeds this limit extra fee will be charged. If your page exceeds 14 pages, please contact the organizers first. The additional fee is charged for the pages exceeding the page limit in either the version submitted for review or in the camera-ready version, whichever is greater. In particular, you must not shorten the camera-ready version in comparison with the version submitted for review unless the reviewers required this (contact us if you feel you should do shorten it; in any case this would not reduce the fee).

Double blind review policy: the review procedure is double blind. Thus the papers submitted for review must not contain the authors' names, affiliations, or any information that may disclose the authors' identity (this information is to be restored in the camera-ready version upon acceptance). In particular, in the version submitted for review please avoid explicit auto-references, such as "in [1] we show" -- consider "in [1] it is shown". I.e., you may cite your own previous works provided that it is not deducible from the text that the cited work belongs to the authors. When citing your previous work, please keep the names:

Incorrect:      In [1] we have shown ...
1. <Hidden for review>, Syntactic Structures, The Hague, Mouton, 1957.


In [1] it was shown ...
1. Chomsky, N., Syntactic Structures, The Hague, Mouton, 1957.

Format. The submissions are to be formatted in strict accordance with the Springer LNCS format guidelines. You can find here some useful advice on formatting.

Submission procedure. Submissions are received electronically. The submission and reviewing procedure is handled the the EasyChair system. To submit a paper, go to the


If you have not a user of the EasyChair system, you will need to register using the "I have no EasyChair account" button. Please do not send us your submissions by email. Please contact us in case of problems.

Submission is done in two phases. Before the abstract registration deadline, we only need the tentative title and abstract of your paper (you can change this later). They will be used only to reserve the appropriate reviewers for your paper. Then, before the full paper submission deadline, we will need the full text of your paper, as a PDF file. Both abstract and full paper are uploaded via the EasyChair system.

Submission of the paper assumes that at least one author will register at the conference and present an accepted paper or poster. Full registration fee should be paid for each accepted paper.
