Welcome to AI 2015

The 28th Canadian Conference on Artificial Intelligence will take place in Halifax, Nova Scotia, June 2-5, 2015. AI 2015 will include a technical program consisting of presentations of research papers, invited keynote speakers, and tutorials describing the state-of-the-art in artificial intelligence.

A Graduate Student Symposium will occur on the first day of the conference. AI 2015 invites papers that present original work in all areas of Artificial Intelligence, either theoretical or applied.

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series.  Expanded versions of selected papers representing significant and mature work will be invited to a special issue of Computational Intelligence.

New for 2015: Canadian AI 2015 will adopt a double-blind review process; also, authors of accepted papers may opt-out of the conference proceedings and still present their work at the conference. Details in the Call For Papers.

AI 2015 is part of the 2015 AI/GI/CRV Conference, a confederation of three leading conferences: Artificial Intelligence 2015, Graphics Interface 2015, and Computer and Robot Vision 2015. A single registration will let you attend any session in the three conferences, which will be scheduled in parallel tracks
