PAIS 2022

The 11th International Conference on Prestigious Applications of Intelligent Systems, PAIS 2022, will take place on July 25th, 2022 in Vienna, Austria, as a subconference of  IJCAI-ECAI 2022, the 31st International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence and the 25th European Conference on Artificial Intelligence. 

The PAIS 2022 Programme chairs invite papers describing innovative applications of AI techniques to real-world systems and problems. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a central topic in contemporary computer science and has enabled many groundbreaking developments which have significantly influenced our society. Techniques, concepts, and results developed under the banner of AI research have proven to be of fundamental importance in areas such as medicine, biology, economics, philosophy, linguistics, psychology and engineering; furthermore, they have proven to have a significant impact on several real-world applications, such as e-commerce, tourism, e-government, national security, manufacturing and other economic sectors. Consequently, AI has become increasingly important in neighbouring fields.

Papers highlighting all aspects of the application of intelligent systems technology are most welcome. Our aim is to provide a forum for academic and industrial researchers and practitioners to share experience and insight on the applicability, development and deployment of intelligent systems. PAIS is the largest showcase of real applications using AI technology worldwide and is the ideal place to meet developers of successful applications. 

The call for papers is available here.
