Please note that the policy of AI EDAM for papers concerning powerful, general-purpose techniques, such as Neural Nets or Evolutionary computing, is that we specifically ask authors and reviewers to explain whether this is:

  1. a new version of that technique;
  2. a significant new result obtained using that technique; or
  3. a new approach to using that technique for Engineering.

In ALL cases a detailed evaluation is required, comparing the work to all existing methods and research: not just ones using the same techniques. Reviewers will be asked to follow these guidelines. If they are not followed by the authors, papers may be rejected without a complete review.

We will not publish papers that describe "just another application" -- there are a very large number of such papers already. Solutions must be, and must be shown to be, general and must not be limited to a single case.
