The Twenty-Fifth AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AAAI-11) and the Twenty-Third Conference on Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence (IAAI-11) will be held in San Francisco, California at the Hyatt Regency, August 7-11, 2011.

AAAI will consist of a main technical track and four special technical tracks, Al and the Web, Computational Sustainability and AI (new!), Integrated Intelligence, and Physically Grounded AI, as well as Nectar Papers, highlighting significant Al results presented at our sister conferences in the past two years.

The second iteration of the AAAI Symposium on Educational Advances on AI will be collocated with AAAI (see below for details). The AAAI-11 program will also include 16 half-day tutorials, 15 workshops, the AAAI Robotics Program, AAAI Poker Competition, and the Video Competition, Student Abstract Posters, the AAAI/SIGART Doctoral Consortium, and more!

AAAI-11 sponsors to date include Google, Microsoft, Yahoo!, the Institute for Sustainability, USC Information Sciences Institute, and IBM. We look forward to a special Google lab tour (space will be limited), and a joint AAAI/IAAI invited talk by David Ferrucci (IBM T.J. Watson's Research Center), team leader for Jeopardy! The IBM Challenge in February 2011.

Symposium on Educational Advances in Artificial Intelligence (EAAI)

The second AAAI Symposium on Educational Advances in Artificial Intelligence (EAAI) will be held in conjunction with AAAI-11 in San Francisco. The EAAI symposium provides a venue for researchers and educators to discuss pedagogical issues and share resources related to teaching AI and using Al in education across a variety of curricular levels (K-12 through postgraduate training), with a natural emphasis on undergraduate and graduate teaching and learning. The EAAI symposium comprises several components, including a program of high-quality refereed papers and posters; a Model AI Assignments session highlighting innovative, ready-to-adopt materials; a workshop for mentoring new faculty, instructors, and graduate students on teaching; an Educational Video Track within the AAAI-11 Video program; and a Student/Educator Track within the AAAI-11 Robotics Program.
