IJCAI-11 Integrated and Embedded AI (IEAI) Track: Call for Papers

To solve complex real-world problems, artificial intelligence (AI) systems are becoming increasingly integrated and pervasive. These systems often use more than one AI technique in a tight integration (e.g., robotic systems), or they offer important services with AI embedded as a key component within a larger software or hardware system (e.g., search engines or smart phones). In these systems, AI plays a key role in the systems' ability to perceive, reason, learn, communicate and act intelligently in the real world.


The IEAI track welcomes two types of articles:

  • those that emphasize the integration of more than one technique in various AI subareas, and
  • articles that present advances in using AI as an embedded service or component in other areas of computer science or various disciplines of natural science, business and engineering.


Preference is given to submissions that explore, model and evaluate system integration and embedding issues. In addition to the main conference requirements such as novelty and depth (see http://ijcai-11.iiia.csic.es/calls/call_for_papers), important questions to answer for this track include:

  • What is the functionality of the overall system and of the AI subsystems
    being considered?
  • Why are the AI subsystems important in the functionality of the overall systems?
  • How much improvement is gained in the overall system's performance with the inclusion of AI?
  • How do the AI subsystems interact among themselves and with the overall systems?


The IEAI topics include, but are not limited to:

  • AI in bioinformatics and biomedical systems
  • AI in computational sustainability systems
  • AI in information retrieval, Web search and multimedia systems
  • AI in smart phones and sensor based applications
  • AI in social media and social networking systems
  • Intelligent agent systems
  • Integrated planning and scheduling systems
  • Intelligent sensor and robotic systems
  • Intelligent tutoring and educational systems
  • Knowledge engineering, modeling and capture systems
  • Knowledge based database, networking, graphics and software engineering systems
  • Machine learning applications in business, science and engineering
  • Online commerce, games, and computational advertising systems
  • Speech and language understanding and processing systems
  • User behavior modeling and learning, intelligent user interfaces


Papers submitted to this track must follow the instructions given in the general call for technical conference papers. Submitted papers in the IEAI track will be reviewed by qualified reviewers drawn from a special track committee as well as the general program committee. Submissions to this special track that are deemed not to be relevant may be considered for review in the general technical papers track at the discretion of the chairs. Papers are submitted via the same submission Web site as the main technical track, where the "Special Track on Integrated and Embedded Artificial Intelligence" option should be selected after logging in. For more submission details, please consult http://ijcai-11.iiia.csic.es/calls/call_for_papers. For questions, please email the IEAI Track Chair, Qiang Yang, at ieaichair-at- ijcai-11.org.


Selected accepted papers will be invited to submit their expanded versions for publication in the ACM Transactions on Intelligent Systems and Technology (ACM TIST, http://tist.acm.org) through an expedited review and publication process.
