Workshop on Artificial Intelligence for Tourism (AI4Tourism)
August 22-26, 2016,
The tourism industry has become one of the fastest growing industries in the world. Furthermore, the travel and tourism industry has always been open to new technologies.
With the increased interest in the travel and tourism industry in the world, developing new information and communication technologies (ICT) in the travel and tourism industry has become quite important in these days. Since artificial intelligence technologies can be considered one of the key technologies in ICT, they should play a key role in the travel and tourism industry.
Today, AI-based developments in the field are at the forefront. In fact, AI developments and researches have induced much change in this industry. We can expect this innovation to continue: at both the industrial level and the academic level.
This workshop offers a worldwide and unique forum for attendees from academia, industry, government, and other organizations to actively exchange, share, and challenge state-of-the-art researches and industrial case studies on the application of artificial intelligence technologies to travel and tourism.
Topics to be covered at the workshop include, but are not limited to, the following areas:
- Mobility and Embedded Intelligence
- Natural Multilingual Interfaces
- Personalization and Context-based Services
- Information-to-knowledge Transformations
- Data Mining and Knowledge Management
- User Decision Modeling and Usage Analysis

Abstract and Paper Submission
A number of high-quality workshop papers will be selected to publish in LNCS/LNAI series. Therefore, all papers submitted to the PRICAI 2016 Workshops must be formatted in Springer's Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) camera-ready style template; see the Springer's author instructions page for details. Papers (submitted and final) cannot exceed 12 pages (excluding references). Please do not include acknowledgements in submissions due to blind review. Papers must be in trouble-free, high-resolution PDF format, using Type 1 or TrueType fonts. Please only use the author-year system for your references. Please also refer to the instructions on how to prepare your paper for blind review. Electronic abstract and paper submission through the PRICAI 2016 paper submission site is required on or (preferably) before the deadline dates listed above. We cannot accept submissions by e-mail or fax. Authors will receive confirmation of receipt of their abstracts or papers, including an ID number, shortly after submission. We will contact authors again only if problems are encountered with papers.
Blind Review Instructions
Reviewing for the PRICAI Workshop papers is blind to the identities of the authors. The first page, on which the paper body begins, should include the title and abstract, but not the acknowledgments and names or affiliations of the authors. The references should include all published literature relevant to the paper, including previous works of the authors, but should not include unpublished works. When referring to one's own work, use the third person, rather than the first person. For example, say "Previously, Walsh (Walsh 2013) has shown that...," rather than "In our previous work (Walsh 2013) we have shown that...." Try to avoid including any information in the body of the paper or references that would identify the authors or their institutions. Such information may be added to the final camera-ready version for publication.
Program committee members will identify papers they are qualified to review based on the information submitted electronically (the paper's title, keywords, and abstract). Their reviewing will be done blind to the identities of the authors and their institutions.
Policy Concerning Submissions to Other Conferences or Journals
PRICAI Workshop 2016 will not accept any paper that, at the time of submission, is under review for 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 PRICAI Workshop 2016's review period. These restrictions apply only to journals and conferences, not to workshops and similar specialized presentations with a limited audience and without archival proceedings. The restrictions also do not apply to preprints posted only on arXiv. Authors will be required to confirm that their submissions conform to these requirements at the time of submission.
Accepted papers will be allocated twelve (12) pages in the conference proceedings (with one extra page for references). Final papers found to exceed page limits and or otherwise violating the instructions to authors will not be included in the proceedings. Authors will be required to transfer copyright of their paper to Springer.
