The 14th International Conference on Grammatical Inference—September 5-7, 2018—Wrocław, Poland
We invite researchers to submit original, unpublished research that fits the scope of ICGI 2018. There are three ways to share your new ideas and results with the grammatical inference community. Please pick a suitable one, we are looking forward to your submissions: (i) A regular paper publication, in which before an article is deemed appropriate to be published in the conference proceedings, it must undergo the peer review process; (ii) Presenting your work in progress during designated sessions of ICGI; and (iii) Attending a special session GI in Bioinformatics conjoined with a poster exhibition. The conference's official language is English—both orally and in writing.
At least one of the publication authors must be a registered participant at the conference, and attend the respective session to present the work.
This year, Wrocław City Hall sponsors the best paper award. The winner, chosen by PC members, will receive EUR 1200 (5000 PLN). Selection criteria: we seek to recognize an innovative or creative paper, with transparent, reproducible, rigorous, and relevant science. The quality and clarity of the presentation will be considered, as will the potential impact of the paper on its field.
We invite three types of papers:
There are no restrictions on the domain of application as long as the paper provides sufficient background information. This year we especially encourage submissions related to the domain of bioinformatics, which will be presented at a special joint session with the collocated Polish Bionformatics Society symposium. Each paper should contain title, authors and affiliation, mailing address, a brief abstract describing the work and at least three keywords which can describe the contents of the work.
Papers must be submitted in pdf format through EasyChair. The total length of the paper should not exceed 12 pages on A4-size paper. The use of LaTeX is strongly encouraged. Prospective authors are strongly recommended to use the JMLR style file for LaTeX since we are going to publish all regular papers with The Proceedings of Machine Learning Research series.
This year we especially encourage submissions related to the domain of bioinformatics, which will be presented at a special joint session with the collocated XI Symposium of the Polish Bionformatics Society. The goal of the special session is to highlight importance of grammar inference and other linguistic approaches to the field of bioinformatics, to inspire novel research and facilitate new exciting collaborations. Contributions for the session should be submitted to the “Linguistic modeling in bioinformatics” track. Bioinformatics-related research in linguistic modeling can also be submitted as work-in-progress or a poster.
We invite abstracts on work in progress, which can be either theoretical or experimental, fundamental or application-oriented, solving or proposing important problems. Abstracts will appear in a conference booklet (not in the proceedings). Prospective authors are invited to submit an abstract which represents original work.
All abstracts should be submitted by email to the PC Chair not later than August 8, 2018. Abstracts must be submitted in pdf format. The use of LaTeX is strongly encouraged. We have no special format request other than the following. The total length of the abstract should not exceed 2 pages except for references. You are suppose to use the default class for composing an article with the following options: 11pt, a4paper, twoside. All references entries put to one .bib file and in the text use plain bibliography style. Each abstract should contain title (in the \title command), authors (in the \author command), affiliation and email address (in the \thanks command used in the \author).Work-in-progress authors will be notified of acceptance. If a submission is accepted to appear at the conference, the contact person will receive further instructions regarding the oral presentation at the conference.
The poster session is an opportunity for presenting late-breaking results, ongoing research projects, and speculative or innovative ideas, which concern all grammatical inference topics including applications, especially in bioinformatics and related areas. Submissions of full posters should conform to the following guidelines:
Poster authors will be notified of acceptance. If a submission is accepted to appear at the conference, the contact person will receive further instructions regarding the poster presentation at the conference.
