AAAI-12 Sponsorship Program
On behalf of the Conference Committee of the Twenty-Sixth AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence, we invite you to participate in the sponsor program for AAAI-12. The conference will be held July 22-26, 2012 in Toronto, Canada, the capital of Ontario, and is sponsored by the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI). The site of the conference will be the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel, located in the financial and entertainment districts, and connected to PATH, a 16-mile underground network of shops and services. AAAI is pleased to announce its partnership with the local AI community at the University of Toronto to showcase local research and bring the flavor of Toronto to AAAI-12.
2012 marks the 100th anniversary of Alan Turing's birth, and AAAI is joining the community-wide centenary celebration with several events, including a special inaugural 2012 AAAI Turing Lecture by Christos Papadimtriou (University of California, Berkeley). This event, as well as other special events, provide ideal vehicles to highlight your company's participation and sponsorship of AAAI-12.
AAAI is the annual North American artificial intelligence conference, attracting over 1,100 AI researchers and practitioners, representing government, university and corporate research facilities from throughout the world. Your participation in the AAAI-12 Sponsor Program will give you instant visibility to this diverse group of AI professionals, representing a host of research areas such as robotics, AI and the web, cognitive systems, AI applications, computational sustainability and AI, human computation, interactive digital entertainment, education, and recommender systems.
As part of most levels of sponsorship, you will be provided with a table-top exhibit throughout the technical portion of the conference. This heightened visibility will provide an opportunity for one-on-one exchange with conference participants. Whether you want to showcase your intelligent technology to the AI community, or tap into this incredible source of talent, AAAI-12 is the premier venue to accomplish these goals.
The conference includes several major events that can be named in honor of major contributors. These naming opportunities bring very high visibility but are limited in number. We urge companies considering this level of support to contact AAAI as soon as possible. Preference will be given to companies who commit early and/or commit to support the event for multiple years.
