HYCAS 2009 - 1st International Workshop on
Hybrid Control of Autonomous Systems
Integrating Learning, Deliberation and Reactive Control

Information for Authors

Papers are to be submitted in the PDF format and prepared using the style guide below.
If your article is accepted at least one author will need to register for the HYCAS 2009 workshop on or before May 15 for the article to appear in the proceedings. . You do not need to register for the main IJCAI conference in order to participate in the HYCAS workshop. Each participant will receive a hardcopy of the HYCAS proceedings.
A journal special issue based on the workshop proceedings will be published if enough high-quality submissions are received for the workshop.

Double Submission Policy

Please note that IJCAI does permit the same article to be published both in the main conference and an IJCAI workshop. However, we ask you to indicate the double submission when you submit the article to HYCAS. If your article is accepted both at the main conference and the workshop we may exclude it here to make room for other contributions.
You may also change your IJCAI article for the HYCAS workshop, e.g. by including more recent work that did not make it into the IJCAI article, or by choosing a different focus. We have raised the page limit to 8 pages, which means you can add additional experiments and/or other material that is useful for the discussion of your method in our workshop. This may also include preliminary results that would not be accepted in a conference. As a workshop author you will also maintain the copyright of your paper so that you will be able to publish the HYCAS 2009 article elsewhere afterwards. You will, however, be required to sign a form allowing us to include your paper in the workshop's proceedings.

Formatting and Style Guide

Paper Types

We solicit two types of papers for the HYCAS workshop: Regular Papers and short Position Papers. Regular papers are the standard way of publishing research results and algorithms with discussion of related work and experimental validation of your method (where applicable). Position papers are meant for the publication of work at the initial stages and for research statements you wish to discuss at the workshop. The formatting and submission procedures for both types of contributions are the same, except that regular papers may be 8 pages in length, while position papers are limited to 4 pages. While position papers may be short, we still expect them to be written in a scientifically grounded and sound way, with proper references to related work etc. By having two types of papers we wish to encourage you to discuss preliminary work with a scientific community at an early stage. We also cordially invite students to submit their current work to HYCAS.
When writing an article for the HYCAS 2009 workshop please follow the instructions given on the corresponding IJCAI page for formatting the article. Please note, however, that the submission for the workshop is different in the following ways: If you wish to add additional information, e.g. a video, to the submission this is possible. Please contact us before the submission deadline by e-mail so that we can try to accomodate your needs.

Review Process

Every article submitted to HYCAS 2009 will be reviewed by at least 2 members of the programme committee, to ensure a high-quality workshop with interesting contributions. The selection criteria include relevance to the workshop, accuracy and originality of ideas, quality and significance of the results and clarity of the presentation.
