AAAI-15 Robotics Activities
The Twenty-Ninth Conference on Artificial Intelligence
January 25–30, 2015, Austin, Texas USA
AAAI gratefully acknowledges the support of the National Science Foundation, which has made many of the AAAI-15 robotics activities possible.
AAAI-15 will offer a number of programs at the interface of AI and robotics. These will include the following:
- Robotics as a top-level keyword for the AAAI-15 main conference track (paper submission deadline: September 10 and 15, 2014).
- A novel integrated systems track with its own specific review criteria (paper submission deadline: September 10 and 15, 2014). The integrated systems track focuses on papers that combine two or more distinct component technologies in an integrated manner, to achieve added value either formally or empirically.
- An AI Robotics Fellowship program, aimed at Ph.D. students from robotics labs that typically do not publish at AI venues but who would like to attend AAAI-15 and learn about AI techniques of relevance to robotics (application deadline: October 1, 2014). The students will give short talks in a dedicated AAAI-15 session about their dissertation topics. (In a reciprocal arrangement, authors of selected AAAI-15 papers judged to be of interest to a robotics audience will have the opportunity to present their research in a dedicated session of the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) 2015. These invitations will also be supported by a fellowship program.)
- Invited talks from robotics researchers, including from a Robotics: Science and Systems Early Career Spotlight speaker.
- A celebration of the Shakey project, including a panel with distinguished researchers Ed Feigenbaum, Peter Hart, and Nils Nilsson.
- An exhibition of robotics research from academia and industry (including a Robotics in Texas event and RoboCup exhibition match), which is also open to selected members of the general public (application deadline: November 1, 2014).
- The video competition will include a "best robot video" award.
