About us

The Conference of the Spanish Association for Artificial Intelligence (CAEPIA) is a biennial forum open to worldwide researchers to present and discuss their last scientific and technological advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI). Authors are requested to send original unpublished works, which describe relevant research about topics related to Artificial Intelligence from all points of view: formal, methodological, technical or applied.

Our Mission

To facilitate the dissemination of new ideas and experiences, to strengthen the links among the different research groups involved, to promote knowledge transfer between recent researchers and consolidated groups, and to help spread new developments to society.

Within CAEPIA, the Doctoral Consortium is organized, a forum for doctoral students to interact with other researchers by discussing their thesis project.

CAEPIA does its best to endorse quality by giving special publicity to works that have been highlighted by the reviewers. For this, there will be several awards in all the events we organize, so that the works and researchers (emerging or consolidated ones) can transmit to the rest of the participants their special effort in making an impact investigation. These awards will be granted according to purely scientific criteria, and will consist of an accrediting diploma plus an economic bonus that may vary according to the event in question.

In order to highlight the practical importance of the AI, the third competition on mobile Apps with AI techniques is being held, together with a dissemination video competition.

In addition, this edition of CAEPIA will feature outstanding papers (Key Works) already published in journals or forums of recognized prestige.

In the 19th edition of CAEPIA, several federated conferences and workshops are held, which will maintain their own programme committee and distribute their respective calls for papers.

  • CAEPIA 2020 | XIX Edition Main Session
  • XX Spanish Congress on Fuzzy Logic and Technologies (ESTYLF 2020)
  • XIV Spanish Congress on Metaheuristics, Evolutionary and Bioinspired Algorithms (MAEB 2020)
  • X Symposium of Theory and Applications of Data Mining (TAMIDA 2020)

CAEPIA is open to the proposal of new workshops and other events (see more information).

CAEPIA is open to the proposal of new workshops (masm@inf.uc3m.es) and other events.
