Please Join Us for IAAI-09!
AAAI is delighted to announce that the Twenty-first IAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence will be held in Pasadena, California, July 14–16, 2009. IAAI-09 is collocated with the International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence. Please mark your calendars now for IAAI-09, and feel free to contact us at iaai09 [at] aaai [dot] org with any inquiries.
The purpose of the IAAI-09 conference is to promote research in AI and scientific exchange among AI researchers, practitioners, scientists, and engineers in related disciplines. On this page, you will find links to the wide variety of programs being held at IAAI-09 as they become available.
IAAI Invited Talks
We are very excited about our three invited speakers. Bill Swartout, director of technology at USC's Institute for Creative Technologies, will give the Robert Engelmore Memorial Award Lecture for 2009. Swartout will discuss the synergies among the different threads of AI research that are leading to the goal of computer-generated characters that look and behave just like real people.
Luis van Ahn, a professor of computer science at Carnegie Mellon University, will describe how to harness the power of millions of humans and computers together to solve problems that would be impossible for either to solve alone.
Finally, Stephen Wolfram will describe the concepts, technology and science that underlie Wolfram|Alpha — an ambitious project to make as much knowledge as possible computable.More…

The Conference Venue
Located in southern California, minutes away from Hollywood and Los Angeles, Padaena is located in the San Gabriel valley. With towering San Gabriel Mountains to its north, Pasadena is home to the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) with its Jet Propulsion Laboratories (NASA JPL) and host to the annual Rose Parade held each New Year's day. Now is the time to make your plans now to join us in Pasadena! More…
We hope to see you in Pasadena!

Emerging Application or Methodologies Papers
The goal of the emerging application track is to "bridge the gap" between basic AI research and deployed AI applications, by discussing efforts to apply AI tools, techniques, or methods to real world problems. Emerging applications are on aspects of AI applications that are not appropriate for deployed application case studies, or are not sufficiently deployed to be submitted as case studies. This track is distinguished from reports of scientific AI research appropriate for the IJCAI-09 Conference in that the objective of the efforts reported here should be the engineering of AI applications.
Deployed Application Case Study Papers
Case-study papers must describe deployed applications with measurable benefits that include some aspect of AI technology. The application needs to have been in production use by their final endusers (typically for at least three months). The case study may evaluate either a stand-alone application or a component of a complex system.
