Submission deadline **EXTENDED**: 8th October 2021, Anywhere on Earth.
Causal-ITALY aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners in artificial intelligence, logic, and philosophy of science, for informal discussions and community building with a dedicated focus on methods and trends emerging from the study of causality.
The workshop will take place on 29 or 30 November 2021 in conjunction with the Italian Conference on Artificial Intelligence, AIxIA. For details on conference participation, registration, venue, please visit https://aixia2021.disco.unimib.it/
. We are currently envisaging a virtual format: further details will be announced closer to the event.
We welcome the submission of papers on systems, tools, and applications of artificial intelligence methods for causal learning and reasoning, both logic-based and statistical. We encourage submissions presenting recent developments, including works in progress, as well as short summaries of recently published papers.
Papers will be collected in informal, non-archival proceedings.
## Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Causal discovery in complex environments and in real-world
Efficient causal discovery in large-scale databases
Causal effect identification and estimation
Causally-enriched reinforcement learning and active learning
Disentanglement, representation learning, and developing safe AI from a causal perspective
Modelling causal theories
Causality, temporal reasoning and action theories
Causality and counterfactual reasoning
Causality, learning and experimental design
Causality and probability
Causality and equivalence
Causality and ontology
Relating non-monotonic approaches and Causal Networks
Challenging problems and benchmark examples
Tools, systems and applications dealing with causality
## Submission details
Kindly ensure that your paper is written in English and formatted using the guidelines you find here.
Long papers are limited to 7 pages including references. Short papers—including works in progress and summaries of recently published papers—should be between 2 and 4 pages including references.
All submissions will receive a light-touch peer-review by experts based on significance, clarity, and expected contribution to the academic discussions at the workshop.
Causal-Italy is a specialized workshop without archival proceedings, and no proceedings available on the web. As such, many conferences accept duplicate submissions. We encourage the authors to carefully examine the policy of the conference/journal they intend to submit their work to before submitting their paper to Causal-Italy.
