Call For Papers

The Program Committee of the 18th European Conference on Logics in Artificial Intelligence (JELIA 2023) invites the submission of technical papers for the conference that will be held in Dresden, Germany, from the 20th to the 22nd of September of 2023.

Aim and Scope

The aim of JELIA 2023 is to bring together active researchers interested in the use of logics in Artificial Intelligence, in order to discuss current research, results, problems, and applications of both theoretical and practical nature. JELIA strives to foster links and facilitate cross-fertilization of ideas among researchers from various disciplines, among researchers from academia and industry, and between theoreticians and practitioners.

Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original and unpublished research in all areas related to the use of logics in Artificial Intelligence, including, but not limited to:

  • Abductive and inductive reasoning
  • Applications of logic-based AI systems
  • Argumentation
  • Automated reasoning including satisfiability checking and its extensions
  • Causality and logics
  • Computational complexity and expressiveness
  • Deontic logic and normative systems
  • Description logics and other logical approaches to ontologies
  • Knowledge representation, reasoning, and compilation
  • Learning and reasoning
  • Logic programming, answer set programming, constraint logic programming
  • Logics for uncertain and probabilistic reasoning
  • Logics in machine learning
  • Logics in multi-agent systems, games, and social choice
  • Neural networks and logic rules
  • Non-classical logics, such as modal, temporal, epistemic, dynamic, spatial, paraconsistent, and hybrid logics
  • Nonmonotonic logics, default logics, conditional logics
  • Planning and diagnosis based on logic
  • Preferences and optimization
  • Reasoning about actions
  • Updates, belief revision and nonmonotonic reasoning
Submissions describing implemented systems/applications and their application area(s) are also welcome.

Special Track

This year's conference will include a Special Track on Logics for Explainable and Trustworthy AI. We welcome contributions that describe logic-based approaches to making AI more transparent, safer, or more trustable. The track aims to draw attention to this timely topic and create a space for discussing the role of logic. The papers accepted for the special track will be presented in dedicated sessions at the conference.


JELIA 2023 is happy to announce that there will be Best Paper and Best Student Paper Prizes sponsored by Springer, each is a cash prize amounting to EUR 500. The Program Committee will select for this honor the contribution of the highest technical excellence and scientific merit. In the case of the latter award, the primary author of the paper must be a student at the time of submission.

In previous editions, the best paper of JELIA has been invited to the sister conference track of IJCAI, and the conference series intends to carry on with this tradition.

The authors of selected contributions of outstanding quality will be invited to submit an extended version of their work to the TPLP journal and will enjoy fast-track reviewing and publication.

Submission Details

JELIA 2023 Submission on EasyChair

JELIA 2023 welcomes submissions of long or short papers. All submissions should contain original research, and sufficient detail to assess the merits and relevance of the contribution. Submissions must not have been previously published or be simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere; see also the note below.

All submissions should not exceed 13 pages for long papers and 6 pages for short papers (excluding references, including everything else, for example figures), and should be written in English. Papers must be self-contained; appendices with additional material (such as proofs) will only be considered at the reviewers' discretion and will not be published. Submissions must be formatted according to the standard Springer LNCS style (see, and are not anonymous. The conference proceedings of JELIA 2023 will be published by Springer Verlag in the series Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence, a sub-series of Lecture Notes in Computer Science (important note: Springer will require all the LaTeX source files of all accepted submissions).

Camera-Ready Instructions

The final paper and the signed copyright form are due on July 27th, 2023. This is a firm deadline for the production of the proceedings. You should submit your paper using your EasyChair proceedings author role for JELIA 2023.

  1. FINAL PAPER: Please submit the files belonging to your camera-ready paper using your EasyChair author account. Follow the instructions after the login for uploading two files:
    1. a zipped file containing all your LaTeX sources, and
    2. the PDF version of your camera-ready paper
    The page limit is strict, and it is
    • for long papers, 14 pages excluding references, and
    • for short papers, 7 pages excluding references.
    Note that you have one additional page w.r.t. the submitted version, use it to properly incorporate the reviewers comments and improve your paper as suggested.
    Please follow strictly the author instructions of Springer-Verlag when preparing the final version:

    Our publisher has recently introduced an extra control loop: once data processing is finished, they will contact all corresponding authors and ask them to check their papers. We expect this to happen shortly before the printing of the proceedings. At that time your quick interaction with Springer-Verlag will be greatly appreciated.
  2. COPYRIGHT: Please upload a signed and completed copyright form to us as soon as possible. The Springer copyright forms can be found at

    It is sufficient for one of the authors to sign the copyright form. You can scan the form into PDF or any other standard image format.

Policy on multiple Submissions

JELIA 2023 will not accept any paper that, at the time of submission, is under review or has already been published or accepted for publication in a journal or another conference. Authors are also required not to submit their papers elsewhere during JELIA's review period. However, these restrictions do not apply to previous workshops with a limited audience and without archival proceedings.

Any additional questions can be directed towards the JELIA Chairs:
