19 - 25 August 2017, Twenty-sixth International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI-17), Melbourne, Australia

Date: 19 - 25 August 2017
Location: Melbourne, Australia
Deadline: Thursday 16 February 2017

For nearly a half-century, IJCAI has remained the premier conference bringing together the international AI community in communicating the advances and celebrating the achievements of artificial intelligence research and practice. With the current explosive interest in AI and its applications, this 26th edition of the conference is guaranteed to provide an exciting forum to present and hear about cutting-edge research in AI.

A special theme of IJCAI-17 is Autonomy. Recent developments in the adoption of artificial intelligence and other technologies across many different areas of endeavour have brought new challenges or have made real those that until now had been largely abstract and theoretical. In recognition of this trend, and in support of addressing some of these challenges, this Special Track seeks to foster discussion and debate around the issues brought forward by this new generation of technologies and applications.

The scientific program of IJCAI 2017 will also contain Workshops, Tutorials, Demonstrations, Robotic Exhibitions, a Doctoral consortium, and will host different software, video, and robotics competitions.

The Program Committee invites the submission of technical papers for the main technical track of the conference. Submissions are invited on significant, original, and previously unpublished research on all aspects of artificial intelligence. For the Special Track on Autonomy, we seek papers that address or consider the challenges across multiple different dimensions: Technical, Philosophical, Legal, and Social. All papers will receive mindful and rigorous reviews.
