The Innovative Applications for
Artificial Intelligence Conference at AAAI- 19
The Thirty-First Annual Conference on Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence (IAAI- 19) will collocate with AAAI- 19 in Honolulu, Hawaii. The conference will run from January 29–31.
IAAI- 19 will focus on successful applications that showcase novel uses of AI technology. The conference will use technical papers, challenge papers, invited talks, and panel discussions to explore issues,
methods, and lessons learned in the development and deployment of AI applications; and to promote an
interchange of ideas between basic and applied AI.
IAAI- 19 will consider papers in three tracks: ( 1) deployed application case studies, ( 2) emerging applications or methodologies, and ( 3) challenge problem papers.
Case Study Papers
Case-study papers must describe deployed applications with measurable benefits that include an innovative use of AI technology. Applications are defined as deployed once they are in production use by their
final end-users (not the people who created the application) for sufficiently long that the in-use experience can be meaningfully collected and reported — a period that typically spans at least three months.
The case study may evaluate either a stand-alone application or a component of a complex system.
The goal of the emerging application track is to “bridge the gap” between basic AI research and deployed
AI applications, by discussing efforts to apply AI tools, techniques, or methods to real-world problems in
novel ways. Emerging applications focus on aspects of AI applications that are not appropriate for
deployed application case studies, or are not sufficiently deployed to be submitted as case studies. This
track is distinguished from reports of scientific AI research appropriate for the AAAI- 19 conference in that
the objective of the efforts reported here should be the engineering and application of AI technologies.
Challenge Problem Papers
The goal of the IAAI Challenge Problem track is to identify new opportunities and the associated research
and development challenges in applying artificial intelligence to real-world problems. Challenge problems may include roadblocks to applying existing AI technology to new tasks, significant integrated systems challenges, or fundamentally new technologies needed for new applications. These problems may
consider any aspect of specific AI applications, including the underlying technology, engineering concerns, or technology transition and deployment issues. Importantly, challenge problem submissions
should be grounded in reality.
Prospective authors submitting to any of these tracks must consult the IAAI Call for Participation, register on the AAAI web site, and submit papers no later than September 5, 2018.
