The 15th International Conference on Hybrid Artificial Intelligence Systems

11th-13th November 2020

Polytechnic Engineering School, University of Oviedo

University of Oviedo, Gijón (Asturias), Spain

HAIS 2020

The 15th International Conference on Hybrid Artificial Intelligence Systems (HAIS’20) combines symbolic and sub-symbolic techniques to construct more robust and reliable problem solving models. Hybrid intelligent systems are popular due to their capabilities in handling many real world complex problems, involving imprecision, uncertainty and vagueness, high-dimensionality. They provide us with the opportunity to use both, our knowledge and row data to solve problems in a more interesting and promising way.
HAIS Series of Conferences provides an interesting opportunity to present and discuss the latest theoretical advances and real-world applications in this multidisciplinary research field.



Due to the postponement of conference to October, we have decided to allow authors to submit their contribution to HAIS 2020.

First round of submission: the accepted contributions’ authors have already received the final acceptance notification. They have to accomplish the new payment and final version submission deadlines.

Second round of submissions:

Paper submission deadline 27th May 2020

Tentative acceptance notification 12th June 2020

Submission of tentatively accepted & revised papers 19th June 2020

Common to both rounds:

Final version Submission 1st July 2020

Early register payment deadline 1st July 2020

Conference dates: 11th-13th November 2020



HAIS’20 proceedings will be published by Springer in its series of Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence – LNAI (part of its prestigious Lecture Notes in Computer Science – LNCS series). 
All submissions will be refereed by experts in the field based on originality, significance, quality and clarity. Every submitted paper to 
HAIS´20 will be reviewed by at least two members of the Program Committee.

All accepted papers must be presented by one of the authors who must register for the conference and pay the fee.

Papers must be prepared according to the LNCS-LNAI style template ( (templates are available in and must be no more than twelve (12) pages long, including figures and bibliography. 
Additional pages (over 12 pages) will be charged with 150 euros each page.
