Call for Papers

The first edition of deep learning IndabaX-Morocco will be held at the Faculty of Sciences and Techniques of Mohammedia in April 29-30, 2019. The event will offer a comprehensive technical program addressing recent developments in research for Artificial intelligence. There will also be socials to facilitate networking, discussion of different career opportunities in AI, and sharing of ideas to increase participation of Moroccan researchers in the field. We invite all members of the AI community to attend the event.

Submission guidelines

We also welcome position papers (2 pages) related to these areas. Work may be previously published, completed, or ongoing. Submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least 2 reviewers in the area. The workshop will not publish proceedings. We encourage researchers in the field to submit their work.

All submissions must be in PDF format. All papers should follow Latex or word templates. Here is an example of a 2 pages research paper following these gidelines. Submissions may be up to 2 pages including all figures and tables, with an additional page for references. The submissions should be in a single column. They should be typeset using 11-point or larger fonts and should have at least 1-inch margin all around. Submissions that do not follow these guidelines risk being rejected without consideration of their merits.

Submissions must state the research problem, motivation, and technical contribution.

Each accepted paper will be presented as a poster. Each poster should be at most 36W x 48H inches or 90 x 122 cm.
