AAAI-07 Technical Conference
AAAI-07 is the Twenty-Second AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AI). The purpose of this conference is to promote research in AI and scientific exchange among AI researchers, practitioners, scientists and engineers in related disciplines. AAAI-07 will have multiple technical tracks, student abstracts, invited speakers, exhibit programs, and an evening reception with demos and posters, all selected according to the highest reviewing standards. The number of parallel technical sessions has been expanded this year with the goal of allowing every accepted paper to be presented orally.
The AAAI-07 technical track welcomed submissions on mainstream AI topics as well as novel cross-cutting work in related areas. Papers will include many of the following topics:
- cognitive modeling and human interaction
- commonsense reasoning
- constraint satisfaction
- evolutionary computation
- game playing and interactive entertainment
- information integration and extraction
- knowledge acquisition and ontologies
- knowledge representation and reasoning
- machine learning and data mining
- model-based systems
- natural language processing
- planning and scheduling
- probabilistic reasoning
- vision and perception
In addition to its main technical papers track, AAAI-07 will include four special paper tracks: two for focused topics, one for ideas that have previously been presented elsewhere but not to a general AI audience, and one for senior researchers to present broad perspectives.
AI and the Web
The Special Track on Artificial Intelligence and the Web (AIW) focuses on the use and extension of AI concepts and techniques for the world wide web.
The web has evolved from a simple hypertext standard into a ubiquitous, global information system including virtually all of human knowledge. Today’s web provides ready access to not only text, images and audio files, but also to structured and semistructured information, sensor data, composable services and communities of people. It offers an open and decentralized environment in which anyone can publish information and services coupled with powerful search engines and agents to discover them. All of this is ubiquitously available from wired, wireless, and mobile devices. The result is an environment enormously useful to people for research, learning, commerce, socializing, communication and entertainment. We have just begun to explore how this vast amount of machine accessible knowledge can be exploited and used by machines to better serve human needs as well as to discover new knowledge.
This AAAI-07 special track includes research papers on AI techniques, systems, and concepts involving or applied to the web. Papers describe web related research or clearly explain how the work addresses problems, opportunities or issues underlying the web or web-based systems.
The Special Track on Integrated Intelligence (II) emphasizes research on evaluated approaches and techniques that synergistically combine abilities from distinct areas of AI to achieve intelligent behavior.
To solve complex, real-world problems, AI systems often must integrate component technologies, such as planning, reasoning, language, dialogue, perception, goal-driven action, and learning. Prototypical examples of such integrated systems include software agents, autonomous robots, intelligent tutoring systems, and virtual characters. The Integrated Intelligence track includes papers on issues that arise in the design and construction of such systems.
Papers in this track highlight synergistic effects of integrating components from distinct areas of AI to achieve intelligent behavior. They articulate the innovative mechanisms used to combine multiple components and should demonstrate the synergy achieved through this integration. Topics range from small-scale integrations of two components to large-scale efforts that support robust autonomous agents.
The AAAI Nectar (New Scientific and Technical Advances in Research) Papers track encourages cross-fertilization of ideas among the various subdisciplines and application areas of AI, and will consist of papers based on results that have been reported previously in other venues.
Senior Member Papers
The Senior Member Presentation Track provides an opportunity for established researchers to give a broad talk on a well-developed body of research, an important new research area, or a thoughtful critique of trends in the field.
The topics relevant to these special tracks, and their submission details, are described in detail in their respective calls for participation. These tracks will be an integral part of the conference program and will be subject to the high standards and rigorous review that are traditional in AAAI. However, each special track will have its own submission process and review criteria, and will have its own program committee of reviewers with appropriate backgrounds.
