The 32nd Canadian Conference on Artificial Intelligence <https://www.caiac.ca/en/conferences/canadianai-2019/home> (AI 2019) will take place in Kingston, Ontario at Queen’s University, May 28 to May 31, 2019. AI 2019 invites papers that present original work in all areas of Artificial Intelligence, either theoretical or applied. As in previous years, we aim for accepted papers to be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in AI series.
*NEWS:* * Special Track on AI and Society * Keynote Speakers: Prof. Maite Taboada <http://www.sfu.ca/~mtaboada/> and Prof. Graham Taylor <https://vectorinstitute.ai/team/graham-taylor/> * Tutorial on Deep Learning and NLP by Prof. Xiaodan Zhu <http://www.xiaodanzhu.com/> * Graduate Student Symposium Submission Deadline: 18 February 2019
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: · Agent Systems · AI Applications · Automated Reasoning · Bioinformatics and BioNLP · Case‐based Reasoning · Cognitive Models · Constraint Satisfaction · Data Mining · E‐Commerce · Evolutionary Computation · Games · Information Retrieval and Search · Information and Knowledge Management · Knowledge Representation · Machine Learning · Multimedia Processing · Natural Language Processing · Neural Nets and Deep Learning · Planning · Privacy‐preserving · Robotics · Uncertainty · User Modeling · Web Mining and Applications
We also welcome the submission of position papers, which present evidence-based arguments for a particular point of view without necessarily presenting a new system. There will be an option during the submission process to indicate that a paper is a position paper.
**Special Track on AI and Society**
AI is today a field of research whose impact reaches well beyond technology, promising creation of new services, highly personalized products, task automation, etc. As prospects for innovation are vast, they raise ethical and social concerns, from privacy, security and accountability to transparency and social appropriation. In this context, a CAI2019 Special Track will welcome multi-disciplinary research papers exploring these challenges.
Topics of interest for this special track include but are not limited to: . Multidisciplinary research involving AI . Transparency and accountability of learning algorithms . Ethical issues in the development of AI . The future of work, automation and AI . AI, access to justice and human rights . Geopolitics and the new global political economy of AI . Impacts and contributions of AI to social innovation . Effects of AI on living environments and territories . Development of artificial moral agents . Transformations of analysis and artistic creation and AI . Integration of AI into teaching practices . Social relationships mediated by the AI
*Important dates* Submission deadline: *January 21st, 2019* Author notification: *February 25th, 2019* Final papers due: *March 10th, 2019*
*Submission details* Submitted papers must be no longer than 12 pages, including references, and must be formatted using the Springer LNCS/LNAI style. We provide a sample of its use here, but we encourage the use of the most up-to-date LaTeX2e style file available from Springer. Papers submitted to the conference must not have already been published, or accepted for publication, or be under review by a journal or another conference. Submissions will go through a double-blind review process by Program Committee members for originality, significance, technical merit, and clarity of presentation. As such, submissions must be anonymized, and papers which fail to do so will be rejected without review. A "Best Paper Award" and a “Best Student Paper Award” will be given at the conference respectively to the authors of each best paper, as judged by the Best Paper Award Selection Committee.
Submissions are accepted via EasyChair using the following link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=canai2019
Marie-Jean Meurs, Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM)
Frank Rudzicz, University of Toronto
*Publication* The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNCS/LNAI). A paper will be accepted either as a long or as a short paper. Long papers will be allocated 12 pages while short papers will be allocated 6 pages in the proceedings. Authors of accepted papers will be allocated time for an oral presentation at the conference and will have the opportunity to present their work in a poster session. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to attend the conference to present the work. Authors must agree to this requirement prior to submitting their paper for review. Expanded versions of selected papers representing mature work will be invited to a special journal issue of Computational Intelligence. -------------- next part -------------- A non-text attachment was scrubbed...
