AAAI-13 will continue the very popular Subarea Spotlights track, first introduced in 2012. Talks will be presented in three categories: 1) "What's hot in ..." talks, summarizing the state of the art in a particular area; 2) Best-paper talks from a broad cross-section of area conferences, highlighting recent strong research results in each area; and 3) "Challenges in ..." talks, summarizing important challenges in a particular area. Talks will outline a vision on where the area should evolve.

The AAAI-13 technical program will includes 202 full paper oral presentations, including the special tracks on AI & the Web, Cognitive Systems, Computational Sustainability and AI, and Robotics. All papers are grouped into technical sessions for oral presentation, and authors also have an opportunity to present a poster in a daily plenary poster session. The new Late-Breaking Papers track gives people a chance to present work that was initiated, enhanced, improved, or completed after the paper submission deadline in January. Papers in this track will be presented in poster format during the daily poster session, and authors will also present a brief spotlight of their paper in an oral presentation the same day.

The Tuesday evening conference-wide poster session will feature student abstracts, doctoral consortium abstracts, robotic demos/posters, and poker competition posters. The week is filled with a host of other programs, including the AI Video Competition, the AI Poker Competition, the International General Game Playing Competition, the TAC Competition, and an extensive tutorial and workshop program. The AAAI-13 Banquet will be held Wednesday evening, July 17, at the Bellevue Arts Museum (BAM) (additional fee). BAM serves as the Pacific Northwest's center for art, craft and design, with an emphasis on Northwest artists. Access to the galleries will be available. The AAAI-13 Program Chairs are also planning a special event for Wednesday evening, which will include a Puzzle Hunt. Stay tuned for details!

Please feel free to contact us at if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you in Bellevue!
