Sponsorship invitation:

On behalf of the organizing committee of IJCAI-2011 conference we invite you to be a sponsor of the twenty-second edition of the International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence, IJCAI-2011, and thus play an essential role for the success of the conference.

 

A rich scientific program that covers all the areas of artificial intelligence --plus tutorials by leading researchers in the field, a number of co-located events and specialized workshops, exhibition of products, companies and research centers-- make IJCAI-2011 one of the most influential conferences in the field of Artificial Intelligence and a key scientific and technological event in IT. The conference is held in the city of Barcelona, in the Mediterranean coast of Spain; a city with a proud cosmopolitan life and a festive welcoming character that inherits a millenary tradition in science, art and commerce. The venue, Barcelona’s International Convention Center (CCIB), was built for Barcelona’s International Cultural Forum in 2002 and counts with all the facilities to host major conferences like IJCAI-2011 with its more than one thousand estimated participants.

 

Your sponsorship is key because without substantial financial backing, conference fees would be inaccessible to academics thus making the conference unviable. Another, equally important reason for your participation is that your presence would contribute to the prestige and impact of the conference and would motivate other sponsors to join as well.

 

There are different ways you may give support to IJCAI. The following table shows the standard sponsorship schedule that corresponds to usual practices in this type of conference.

Call for exhibits

 

An important type of support –independently of other forms-- you may give to IJCAI-2011, is to participate as an exhibitor. In this fashion you would make visible to the academic and industrial community your positioning in the field and help provide conference participants with a concrete reference to the current uses, needs and opportunities for Artificial Intelligence.

 

Basic exhibits categories

 

• Commercial vendor (1500 €)
• Publisher / nonprofit organization (1000 €)
• University / research lab (750 €)
