Call for Papers

The 2022 Configuration Workshop is in the stream of the series of successful workshops started at the AAAI’96 Fall Symposium and continued at IJCAI, AAAI, and ECAI conferences since 1999. Beside researchers from a variety of fields, past events also attracted a significant number of participants from industry (major configurator vendors such as Variantum, Cosling, as well as end-users from Siemens, etc.).

Every year, around 30 people (from all around the world) attend this workshop and more than 15 papers of good quality are accepted. This workshop has its own proceedings with an ISBN number and a specific gala dinner for CWS attendees.

Issues arising when applying configurators in real world applications. Configurators and Industry 4.0 technologies.

Paper Submission

Full papers are limited to 8 pages (including references). Position statements and problem instances can be submitted as short papers limited to 4 pages (including references). Both regular and short papers should be formatted in pdf according to the ECAI 2020 style guide ( and submitted to the EasyChair environment. Each submission will be subject to peer review by at least two members of the program committee. Refereeing criteria are relevance to workshop topics, significance and novelty of the research, technical content, discussion of relationship to previous work, and clarity of presentation. A contribution submitted as a long paper may be accepted as a short paper if the program committee considers it to be inadequate for a long paper but to present an important issue. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register at the workshop and to present the paper.

It is possible to submit already published or submitted articles. In that case, submit both a one-page abstract (600 words) and the article, and take note that the article will not be included in the proceedings. A limited number (max 4) of already published articles will be accepted.
