The Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence is pleased to present the 2020 Fall Symposium Series. At the current time, the Fall Symposium is planned as a physical meeting at its usual Arlington, Virginia location on November 13-14. In addition, several of the Spring Symposia will be colocated with the Fall Symposium on November 11-12. Please check this website for updates on the format of the final symposium program.
Symposia generally range from 40–75 participants each. Participation will be open to active participants as well as other interested individuals on a first-come, first-served basis. Each participant will be expected to attend a single symposium. Registration information will be available on the AAAI web site in August 2020.
The topics of the six fall symposia are as follows:
- AI for Social Good
- Artificial Intelligence in Government and Public Sector
- Cognitive Systems for Anticipatory Thinking
- Conceptual Abstraction and Analogy in Natural and Artificial Intelligence
- Physics-Guided AI to Accelerate Scientific Discovery
- Trust and Explainability in Artificial Intelligence for Human-Robot Interaction
Spring Symposium Colocation
This year, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, several symposia from the Spring Series will be held during the Fall Symposium Series. As a result, each series will be slightly abbreviated to (2) days each, rather than the usual (2.5) days each. The fall event will be structured as follows:
- November 11-12: Spring Symposium Presentations
- November 13-14: Fall Symposium Presentations
The four Spring Symposia to be colocated with the Fall series include:
- Applied AI in Healthcare: Safety, Community, and the Environment
- AI Welcomes Systems Engineering: Towards the Science of Interdependence for Autonomous Human-Machine Teams
- Deep Models and Artificial Intelligence for Defense Applications: Potentials, Theories, Practices, Tools, and Risks
- Towards Responsible AI in Surveillance, Media, and Security through Licensing
Detailed information about the spring symposia can be found at the Spring Symposium Site. Please note that no further submissions are being accepted for the rescheduled spring symposia.
Most symposium organizers have elected to accept submissions via the AAAI Fall Symposium EasyChair site. Please be sure to select the appropriate symposium when submitting your work. Interested individuals should submit a paper or abstract by the deadline listed above.
