Unlike many organizations, AAAI allows cancellation at any time, so you can avoid paying twice. However, you must provide proof of full-time student status when applying.
Senior Member Presentation Track: A Senior Member Presentation Track is an excellent opportunity for established researchers to give a broad talk that provides a global perspective. It is important to summarize well-developed research areas, and to present promising ideas and visions of new research directions. To participate in the Senior Member Presentation Track, you must submit a paper in AAAI format along with a talk proposal. There are also subtracks, such as Bridge Talks, Summary Talks, and Blue Sky Idea Talks.
Senior Member Presentation Track: The Senior Member Presentation Track submission is available at the AAAI conference website. Submitting a paper to the Senior Member Presentation Track requires completing an online submission form. You must then provide all the necessary information in one PDF document. Each section should be on a new page, with the sub-track incorporated as a subtitle. Your submission should not exceed three pages, including a talk outline plus a CV. You can add references on the following pages.
AAAI Conference: The AAAI conference is attended by over 5,000 AI researchers each year. If you are interested in promoting your research, a sponsorship of the conference is an excellent option. The conference offers ample opportunities for researchers and companies to meet and network with other experts. You’ll be able to share in important discussions and network with other AI professionals in this field. AAAI has numerous programs for both individuals and companies, which can benefit your business.
The AAAI technical program is the heart of the conference. Many senior program committee members and authors have contributed substantial work in its preparation. We appreciate all of their work. We hope you find this program useful. Please read the guidelines for authors and submit your paper. The technical program is open to anyone who is interested in AI and data science. It focuses on the latest advancements in the field and enables researchers to exchange ideas and information.
The AAAI conference technical program focuses on artificial intelligence (AI) broadly conceived. AAAI-23 seeks to promote research in various AI-related fields, including computer vision, data mining, robotics, and human-in-the-loop AI. The conference is particularly interested in work that cuts across technical boundaries and bridges AI and related research areas, as well as develops AI techniques in context of important application domains.
The AAAI conference technical program is organized to stimulate theoretical and applied AI research and promote intellectual exchange among researchers. The technical program features invited presentations and substantial original research. Additionally, the AAAI conference identifies important social issues that surround AI and related fields. AAAI is held in Washington, DC, USA. The next AAAI conference will be held in 2023 in Washington, DC. Registration information will be sent directly to invited participants.
The AAAI-22 technical program also includes a special track on AI for social impact. This track recognizes research that applies AI to societal challenges, but it does not yet have a large deployment. The program also features student demonstrations, student abstracts, and papers from the newly formed AAAI Undergraduate Consortium. The AAAI conference is held in conjunction with the 34th AAAI Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence conference.
Special track on AI for Social Impact
The Special track on AI for social impact at the AAAI conference aims to showcase the potential applications of artificial intelligence for social good. Papers should demonstrate a fit between AI techniques and social problems, as well as a novelty of the AI-based approach. The program committee will evaluate the significance of the problem, the paper’s engagement with previous literature, and the paper’s evaluation and facilitation of follow-up work. Further details are available on the AAAI website.
In addition to papers on AI applications, the conference will also feature tutorials, workshops, and competition programs. It is important to note that the conference will be co-located with the Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence Conference and the Twelfth AAAI Symposium on Educational Advances in AI. This co-location will allow attendees to experience AI in a new light. In addition to the Special Track on AI for social impact, there will be other activities throughout the conference.
For papers on AI for social good, the AAAI conference committee will consider a variety of research projects. Submissions should be prepared following standard AAAI conference guidelines, and authors should not disclose their identities to the committee. A title page should contain the title, abstract, content areas, and ID number, but not authors’ names. References should contain all relevant published literature, except acknowledgements of funding. Also, submissions should not include pointers to supplemental material on the web.
A special track on AI for social impact will be held at the AAAI conference in 2022. Submissions will be judged by an external committee composed of AI experts and will be published in the IJCAI proceedings. The award will be given to the best paper from this track. Once the papers are accepted, they will be presented in designated sessions during the main conference. For more details, please visit the AAAI conference website.
Submissions will be considered according to their novelty, significance, theoretical soundness, and relevance to the AAAI community. They must adhere to ethical research practices, and be reproducible. The authors must confirm their submissions by September 6, 2019.
Call for Diversity and Inclusion Activities
Diversity and inclusion conferences can be effective team-building activities. A DEI book club can help employees learn about different cultures and explore their own identities. Book club topics should match with historical months or holidays, such as May’s mental health month. For example, if you’re hosting a multicultural potluck, consider choosing a book written by a BIPOC author. In addition, a DEI conference call can encourage employees to learn about other cultures and share food with colleagues.
Another way to engage employees is through a real-life story. Sharing a story of an employee’s life gives employees a personal connection with each other and gives them a chance to speak out. It also gives them a reason to engage in the conversation, but not force them to talk about it. Often, this method is the most effective way to increase employee participation. It’s important to consider all perspectives before launching your DEI program.
To encourage participation in DEI activities, consider using Bonusly to create an employee engagement survey. This way, employees can provide candid feedback and be encouraged to join diversity and inclusion activities. You can also use DEI games as an icebreaker or team-building activity. By bringing the diversity of your organization to one conference, you’ll foster a stronger sense of belonging to the organization. If you’re not sure how to engage employees in a DEI conference, try incorporating some of these ideas into your planning sessions.
Diversity and inclusion activities are critical in the AI field, as several minorities are underrepresented. This is especially true of the top AI conferences. This activity is designed to increase awareness of the lack of diversity in AI research by compiling data from these conferences and calculating a diversity index based on gender, geographic location, and the presence of academia. By doing this, you can identify areas where you can make improvements in the diversity of AI conferences.
There are several ways to promote DEI within the computing community. An organized coalition of organizations has been forming in the computer architecture community to raise awareness of the need for diversity and inclusion. For example, the Center for Minorities and People with Disabilities in Information Technology (CMODPIC) organizes diversity-focused workshops and conferences. In addition to conference calls, the committee sponsors a variety of other initiatives to promote diversity within the industry. One such group is WiCArch, which hosts career mentoring workshops.
