Submission Instructions

Three types of submissions are sought: theory, application, and demo oriented:

  • Theory contributions present novel ideas regarding representation and reasoning, and position this result in the context of known QR theory.
  • Application contributions present the use and evaluation of software implementing QR theory in actual real-world contexts. Evaluations can range from technology oriented (e.g. address software functioning in operational contexts) to human oriented (e.g. address usability or stakeholders and market related issues).
  • Demos focus on (novel) implementations of QR theory in software. They can be proof of concepts, but also mature products. Contributions typically address the extras needed to realize the implementation.


  • Submissions must be submitted via EasyChair (see below) before the submission deadline (see Dates).
  • Submissions must be in PDF format and not exceed 6000 words, and not exceed 8 pages.
  • Submissions should be formatted according to the AAAI author guidelines.
  • Submissions do not need to be anonymized; the author list and the author publications should read as they will in the camera-ready copy.

Review Process
All submissions will be evaluated and selected according to their quality, significance, originality, and potential to generate discussion. Each contribution will be reviewed by at least two referees from the QR2016 Program Committee. Papers may be accepted for either oral or poster presentation.

The accepted papers will be published as a collection of Working papers. As QR2016 is a workshop, not a conference, submission of the same paper to conferences (e.g., AAAI or IJCAI) or journals is acceptable.

QR16 uses EasyChair for submissions:
