March 23, 2020 - March 25, 2020
AAAI invites proposals for the 2020 Spring Symposium Series, to be held Monday – Wednesday, March 23-25 at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California. The Spring Symposium Series is an annual set of meetings run in parallel at a common site. It is designed to bring colleagues together in an intimate forum while at the same time providing a significant gathering point for the AI community. The two and one half day format of the series allows participants to devote considerably more time to feedback and discussion than typical one-day workshops. It is an ideal venue for bringing together new communities in emerging fields.
The symposia are intended to encourage presentation of speculative work and work in progress, as well as completed work. Ample time should be scheduled for discussion. Novel programming, including the use of target problems, open-format panels, working groups, or breakout sessions, is encouraged. Most participants of the symposia will be selected on the basis of statements of interest or abstracts submitted to the symposia chairs; some open registration will be allowed. All symposia are limited in size, and participants will be expected to attend a single symposium.
The AAAI Spring Symposium Series 2020
Sponsored by the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence.
In cooperation with the Stanford University Computer Science Department.
AAAI Spring Symposium Submission Site
Most organizers have elected to use the AAAI Spring Symposium EasyChair site for receipt of submissions. If specified in the individual symposium description, please submit your work via the AAAI Spring Symposium EasyChair site. Please be sure to select the appropriate symposium when submitting your work.
The Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence, in cooperation with Stanford University’s Department of Computer Science, is pleased to present the 2020 Spring Symposium Series, to be held Monday through Wednesday, March 23–25, 2020 at Stanford University. The titles of the nine symposia are as follows:
