Proceedings of the Twenty-Sixth AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence
The AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence — AAAI's summer conference — has promoted theoretical and applied AI research as well as intellectual interchange among researchers and practitioners. The technical papers presented at the twenty-sixth meeting of this conference feature substantial, original research and practices, with special emphasis on artificial intelligence and the web; cognitive systems; computational sustainability and artificial intelligence; constraints, satisfiability, and search; knowledge-based information systems; knowledge representation and reasoning; machine learning; multiagent systems; multidisciplinary topics; natural language processing; reasoning about plans, processes, and actions; reasoning under uncertainty; and robotics. Special papers on subarea spotlights, doctoral consortium abstracts, and student abstracts are also included.
This proceedings also includes the papers presented at the Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence Conference. The IAAI conference traditionally consists of case studies of deployed applications with measurable benefits whose value depends on the use of AI technology, as well as emerging applications, which discuss efforts to apply AI tools, techniques, or methods to real world problems. Through the IAAI papers in this proceedings, AI researchers can learn about challenges of real-world domains, the utility of particular AI techniques for specific applications, and the difficulties, successes, and lessons learned in deploying AI applications.
For the third year in a row, the Symposium on Educational Advances in Artificial Intelligence will be held in conjunction with AAAI-12 and included in these proceedings. EAAI-12 provides a venue for researchers and educators to discuss pedagogical issues and share resources related to teaching AI and using AI in education.
The conferences and symposium are sponsored by the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence.
