October 25 to 30 • virtual / on-site (at your choice) • Mexico City, Mexico
characterized by Springer as premier conference in Artificial
Intelligence. It is a
high-level peer-reviewed international conference covering all areas of
Intelligence, traditionally held in
All previous editions of MICAI were published in Springer LNAI (WoS, Scopus, EI). At past MICAI events, extended versions of a considerable number of the LNAI papers were invited to special issues of journals, including ISI JCR-indexed journals; see for example a special issue on MICAI of Expert Systems with Applications. Recent MICAI events received over 300–400 submissions from over 40 countries each, with acceptance rate around 25% for the main session.
Publication: Papers accepted for long oral presentation will be published by Springer in a volume of the series Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI). Best papers awards will be granted to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. Special issues of journals are anticipated for best papers. Extended versions of selected papers are expected to be invited to special issues of journals, including ISI JCR-indexed journals. Traditionally at MICAI, the results of the SMIA Best Thesis in Artificial Intelligence Contest are announced.

Topics of interest are all areas of Artificial Intelligence, including but not limited to:
The registration fee will depend on the modality of participation: lower for virtual modality presenters and higher for on-site modality presenters. Local students will attend the presentations free of charge.
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.
Submission procedure. Submissions are received electronically. The submission and reviewing procedure is handled the the EasyChair system. To submit a paper:
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. First, by the expression of interest deadline, we only need the tentative title and a draft abstract of your paper (you can change this later); they will be used only to reserve the appropriate reviewers for your paper - why not doing it right now? Later, by the full paper submission deadline, we will need the full text of your paper, as a PDF file. Both the draft abstract and full paper are uploaded via the EasyChair system. If you read this late, or need more time, you can upload your paper while the system is open, or contact us for late submissions.
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.
Size. Registration fee for authors includes publication of a paper of up to 12 pages, though more pages can be used for a small additional fee. We strongly encourage authors to use as many pages as really necessary for an excellent paper: longer papers have better impact and receive more citations. Do not sacrifice the quality of your paper to squeeze it into the page limit.
For each page that exceeds this limit small extra fee of USD 10 will be charged. If your page exceeds 20 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). However, we encourage you to use as many pages as you really need for an excellent paper, even if you will pay a very small fee for it -- that it, we recommend you not to sacrifice clarity and completeness of your paper for the page limit.
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  we show" -- consider "in  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 own previous work, please keep the names, but use third person (or no mention of the authors) in the reference:
