About AICS 2022


The 30th Irish Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science (AICS2022) will be hosted by the Department of Computer Science of Munster Technological University (MTU). The conference will be an in-person event this year.

With regular conferences dating back to 1988, the AICS Conference is Ireland’s primary forum for researchers with interests in the fields of Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science. While once a niche area, the fields of Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence, which encompass Data Analytics, Information Retrieval, and Machine Learning, are now at the forefront of Irish computing research and industry.

We seek articles which report on in-use experiences (design, engineering, deployment, utility, and challenges) of AI-based, and cognitive-based.

We invite three types of submissions.

  • Full Paper Track: Full paper submissions should consist of original contributions (describing fundamental basic research, interesting applications, in-use experiences, or reviews of the field) not published in other forums. Papers should be 6 to 12 pages in length (references included).
  • Student Track: This track is designed to facilitate students who have recently completed a Bachelor’s or Master’s programme with a dissertation component. Student track submissions should consist of original contributions (describing either basic research or interesting applications), and the first author must be the student upon whose dissertation the paper is based. Papers should be 6 to 12 pages in length (references included).
  • NECTAR Track: NECTAR track submissions should describe significant results previously published or disseminated no earlier than 2020 at a prestigious international conference or journal.

Author Instructions


All accepted Full-paper and Student Track submissions will be presented at the conference, either orally or as posters, and included in the online conference proceedings. At least one author of each submission will be required to register for, and attend, the conference. All submissions must be made via the Easychair system online here.

Full Paper Track papers and Student Track papers must be submitted in Springer LNCS format (single column proceedings), which is also the format required for the final camera-ready copy. A sample LaTeX document in this format is available here.

NECTAR Track submissions must follow the following template found here.

All accepted submissions in Full Paper Track and Student Paper Track will appear in online proceedings published at Communications in Computer and Information Science by Springer.
