AAAI publication policies and guidelines provide instructions and forms for authors with an accepted paper in a Proceedings or Technical Report that will be formally published by AAAI Press. To obtain such information, please download the author kit for your specific conference. The URL for this kit appears in your acceptance letter.
Policy on use of AI systems in producing AAAI or AAAI-related publications
“It is AAAI’s policy that any AI system, including Generative Models such as Chat-GPT, BARD, and DALL-E, does not satisfy the criteria for authorship of papers published by AAAI and, as such, also cannot be used as a citable source in papers published by AAAI. This includes papers submitted for publication in the AAAI Conference Proceedings, the proceedings of all other AAAI co-organized and cooperating conferences and workshops, and AI Magazine. Attribution of authorship carries with it accountability for the work, which cannot be effectively applied to AI systems. Further, the use of any AI system in the development of an AAAI-affiliated publication is only allowed if its role is properly documented in the manuscript. Ultimately, all authors are responsible for the entire content of their papers, including text, figures, references, and appendices.”
We would like to remind AAAI reviewers that all conference submissions have to be kept confidential. Because of this, submitted papers cannot be uploaded into any system that does not ensure that they are not shared with others. This includes also prompting Large Language Models with papers or parts of them, because these systems may disclose part of the prompt to other users.
We would also like to remind reviewers that they are fully responsible for the entire content of their reviews, so tools can be used to improve the wording of the review but not to generate its content.
Authors of AAAI Press monographs, edited collections, and AI Magazine authors should first consult the instructions on the AAAI Press and AI Magazine Web pages. These instructions are provided primarily for persons who plan to publish a conference, workshop, or symposium paper.
