Aims and Scope
The LatinX in AI Research Workshop (LXAI) is an international interdisciplinary workshop promoting novel theoretical and applied research advances in Artificial Intelligence amongst individuals who identify themselves as Latinx. The workshop is co-located with the Thirty-fourth Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS 2020).
LAXI brings together faculty, graduate students, research scientists, and engineers for an opportunity to connect and exchange ideas and discuss current research trends and advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning. This topical collection will include extended versions of the top papers submitted to the workshop with no less than 60% new content. The topical collection will invite novel contributions on new theoretical methods and applications that fall in line with the topics covered in the main track of the NeurIPS conference.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Deadline for submissions: 31st December 2020Deadline for review: 28th February 2021Decisions: 20th March 2021Deadline for revised version by authors: 20th April 2021Deadline for 2nd review: 10th May 2021Final decisions: 20th May 2021
Peer Review Process
The topical collection will only accept invited papers from the workshop. Invitations will be sent to the best papers as determined by the workshop chairs and reviewers. All submitted manuscripts will go through a single-blind review process and reviewed by at least two reviewers. The guest editors will oversee the general quality and do the first screening of the submissions. Papers may be rejected without further consideration if they are found to not be suitable for the special issue and journal. All papers are expected to have at least 60% new content and we will accept no more than 14 papers.
Paper submissions for the special issue should follow the submission format and guidelines (https://www.springer.com/journal/521/submission-guidelines). Each manuscript should not exceed 16 pages in length (inclusive of figures and tables).
Manuscripts should be submitted online at https://www.editorialmanager.com/ncaa/default.aspx and follow the "Submit A Manuscript" link on that page. Authors should select ‘TC: LatinX in AI Research' during the submission step 'Additional Information'.
