Proceedings of the Twenty-Second International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI11)
The International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI) is the premier international gathering of leading AI researchers and practitioners from all over the world. Held biennially in odd-numbered years since 1969, IJCAI highlights the latest theoretical and applied results in all subfields of artificial intelligence. IJCAI-11, the twenty-second IJCAI conference, was held in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain from July 16–22, 2011. This volume contains the papers presented, organized into ten major representative topics, namely agent-based and multiagent systems; constraints, satisfiability, and search; knowledge representation, reasoning, and logic; machine learning; multidisciplinary topics and applications; natural-language processing; planning and scheduling; robotics and vision; uncertainty in AI; and web and knowledge-based information systems. For 2011, the conference also included a special track on integrated and embedded AI, as well as a track of best papers from related conferences.
