AAAI-18

The Thirty-Second AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence
New Orleans, Louisiana, USA, 02/02/2018 – 07/02/2018.
The Thirty-Second AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AAAI-18) will be held February 2–7, 2018 at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside, New Orleans, Lousiana, USA. The program chairs will be Sheila McIlraith, University of Toronto, Canada and Kilian Weinberger, Cornell University, USA.

The purpose of the AAAI conference is to promote research in artificial intelligence (AI) and scientific exchange among AI researchers, practitioners, scientists, and engineers in affiliated disciplines. AAAI-18 will have a diverse technical track, student abstracts, poster sessions, invited speakers, tutorials, workshops, and exhibit and competition programs, all selected according to the highest reviewing standards. AAAI-18 welcomes submissions on mainstream AI topics as well as novel crosscutting work in related areas.

AAAI-18 will arrive in New Orleans just prior to Mardi Gras and festivities will already be underway. Enjoy legendary jazz music, the French Quarter filled with lively clubs and restaurants, world-class museums, and signature architecture. New Orleans' multicultural and diverse communities will make your experience in the Big Easy unique. The Hilton New Orleans Riverside is located in the thriving Warehouse and Arts District and is an easy walk to the French Quarter, the Audubon Aquarium, and the Butterfly Garden and Zoo. For complete information about options in New Orleans, please see the New Orleans visitors pages.

Topics of Interest
AAAI-18 welcomes submissions reporting research that advances artificial intelligence, broadly conceived. The conference scope includes all subareas of AI and machine learning. These include (but are not limited to) traditional topics such as search, planning, knowledge representation, reasoning, natural language processing, robotics and perception, multiagent systems, statistical learning, and deep learning. We expressly encourage work that cuts across technical areas, or develops AI techniques in the context of important application domains, such as healthcare, sustainability, transportation, and commerce.

For 2018, the Program Cochairs have absorbed the Cognitive Systems and Computational Sustainability tracks into the main conference technical program, with provision for distinguished oversight of reviews. In addition, the cochairs have initiated an Emerging Topics program which, this year, will encourage submissions and community building in the area of Human-AI Collaboration. Further details are listed below.
