Advances in Artificial Intelligence Research and Applications at IJCAI-03. (AAAI News: Summer News from the American Association for Artificial Intelligence)


Hedberg, Sara, AI Magazine


AAAI's press liason reports on highlights of the IJCAI-03 conference, which will be held 9-15 August 2003 in Acapulco, Mexico.

For more than three decades, leading AI scientists, practitioners, and students from around the world have gathered each summer to exchange their progress and new ideas in both the formal context of the conference and in more informal sessions during coffee breaks and after conference hours. Technology managers and analysts attend to learn of emerging AI trends and meet these AI innovators.

Over an intensive 7 days from 9 to 15 August, they will gather once again, this time in beautiful Acapulco, Mexico. Registrations are now being accepted for the conference. (See the end of this article for registration information.)

As part of the American Association for Artificial Intelligence's mission to advance the science and practice of AI, the organization continues to play a leading role in organizing and sponsoring these annual summer conferences. (1)

A Snapshot of Conference Highlights

Because AI is an umbrella term for a broad range of subfields and techniques, the conference is always brimming with diverse content. This year's keynote speaker is the highly accomplished Takeo Kanade of Carnegie Mellon University. In his talk, "Computer Vision: AI or Non-AI Problem," Kanade will examine the historical perspective on computer vision research and present a case for renewing the tie between computer vision and AI research.

Also among this year's invited speakers is Monika Henzinger, Google, Inc.'s research director. As part of a special track on AI and the web, Henzinger will discuss the future of search engines on the internet, describing work under way to achieve better content understanding and more relevant results.

Other invited talks include "Deploying Information Agents on the Web" by Craig Knoblock, the University of Southern California; "Web Intelligence (WI): A New Paradigm for Developing the Wisdom Web and Social Network Intelligence" by Jiming Liu, Hong Kong Baptist University and Web Intelligence Consortium; "Intelligent Systems in Travel and Tourism" by Hannes Werthner, eCommerce and Tourism Research Lab (eCTRL) ITC-irst and University of Trento, Italy; "Optimality of Collective Choice in Social Insects and Social Robots" by Jean-Louis Deneubourg, University Libre du Bruxelles, Belgium; "Data Integration: Successes and Challenges" by Alon Halevy, University of Washington; "Constraint Satisfaction, Databases, and Logic" by Phokion G. Kolaitis, University of California at Santa Cruz; "Self-Reconfiguring Robots: Challenges and Successes" by Daniela Rus, Dartmouth University; "Automated Verification = Graphs, Automata, and Logic" by Moshe Vardi, Rice University; "New Trends in Automated Reasoning" by Andrei Voronkov, Manchester University, United Kingdom; "User Interfaces: An AI Challenge" by Daniel S. Weld, University of Washington; and "Quantum Information: Fundamentals and Applications" by Anton Zeilinger, Vienna University, Austria.

These talks are just the start of the outstanding content slated for this year's conference. One hundred eighty-nine technical papers and 93 poster presentations, 8 workshops, and 22 tutorials on a wide array of emerging efforts in AI will also be presented, along with an exhibition of commercial vendors, publishers, nonprofit organizations, and university research labs. …
