and promoting broad, interdisciplin-
ary research. This field is particularly
unique in the diversity of disciplines
it draws upon, and contributes to,
ranging from human-centered quali-
tative studies and HCI design, to com-
puter science and artificial intelligence,
to economics and the social sciences, all
the way to digital humanities, policy,
and ethics. The conference promotes
the exchange of advances in human
computation and crowdsourcing not
only among researchers, but also en-
gineers and practitioners, to encourage
dialogue across disciplines and com-
munities of practice.

The Fifteenth AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence
and Interactive Digital Entertainment (AIIDE- 19)
Please join us for the Fifteenth AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Interactive
Digital Entertainment (AIIDE- 19), to be held October 8-12, 2019 at the Georgia Institute of
Technology, Atlanta, Georgia, USA. The AIIDE conference showcases interdisciplinary research
on modeling, developing, and evaluating intelligent systems in entertainment. AIIDE- 19 will
provide a meeting place for AI researchers and practitioners to discuss the latest advances and
contemporary issues in entertainment-focused AI. The conference has a long-standing history
of featuring research on artificial intelligence in computer games, and continues to grow into
entertainment areas beyond games. AIIDE invites researchers, developers, and digital artists to
share ideas on topics at the intersection of all forms of entertainment and artificial intelligence.
The program will include invited speakers, research and practitioner presentations, panels,
playable experiences, project demonstrations, interactive poster sessions, AI competitions,
workshops, tutorials, a doctoral consortium, and an artifact evaluation.
The special topic of this year’s conference is human-centered evaluation. In addition to
general topics of interest in entertainment AI, the conference program will feature speakers,
panels, and paper sessions that focus directly on evaluation and critical analysis of AI in digital
entertainment contexts. For complete program details, please see aiide.org.
AIIDE- 19 registration information will be available at the AIIDE- 19 website at the beginning
of July, 2019. The early registration deadline is scheduled for August 16. Please send inquiries to
