The annual AAAI National Conference provides a forum for information exchange and interaction among researchers from all disciplines of AI. Contributions include theoretical, experimental, and empirical results. Topics cover principles of cognition, perception, and action; the design, application, and evaluation of AI algorithms and systems; architectures and frameworks for classes of AI systems; and analysis of tasks and domains in which intelligent systems perform. New this year is an Integrated AI Systems Track, which recognizes the importance to the AI field of the shared goal of building "artificial intelligences" that perform valued activities in real environments by integrating capabilities from AI's diverse subdisciplines.
