AAAI-08 is the Twenty-Third AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AI). Sponsored by the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence, 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-08 will have multiple technical tracks, student abstracts, poster sessions, invited speakers, and exhibit programs, all selected according to the highest reviewing standards.
AAAI-08 welcomed submissions on mainstream AI topics as well as novel cross-cutting work in related areas. Topics included but were not limited to the following:
- 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
- Semantic web
- Vision and perception
In addition to its main technical papers track, AAAI-08 also includes five special paper tracks: three 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.
The Special Track on Artificial Intelligence and the Web (AIW) focuses on the use and extension of AI techniques, systems, and concepts for the world wide web.
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.
The new Special Track Physically Grounded Artificial Intelligence (PGAI) features papers in robotics, vision, activity recognition and other areas of artificial intelligence where computers interface to physical environments.
The AAAI Nectar (new scientific and technical advances in research) Papers track encourages cross-fertilization of ideas between specific areas of AI and the general AI community, and will consist of papers based on significant AI results presented at other conferences in the last two years.
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 are described in detail elsewhere. These tracks are an integral part of the conference program and were subject to the high standards and rigorous review that are traditional in AAAI. However, each special track had its own submission process and review criteria, and has its own program committee of reviewers with appropriate backgrounds.
