The purpose of the AAAI conference series is to promote research in
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and foster scientific exchange between
researchers, practitioners, scientists, students, and engineers in AI and
its affiliated disciplines. AAAI-18 is the Thirty-Second AAAI Conference on
Artificial Intelligence. It will continue the tradition of previous AAAI
conferences with technical paper presentations, invited speakers, workshops,
tutorials, poster sessions, senior member presentations, competitions, and
exhibit programs, all selected according to the highest standards. AAAI-18
will also include additional programs for students and young researchers.

AAAI-18 welcomes submissions reporting research that advances Artificial
Intelligence, broadly conceived. The conference scope includes all subareas
of AI and machine learning. These include (but are not limited to)
traditional topics such as search, planning, knowledge representation,
reasoning, natural language processing, robotics and perception, multiagent
systems, statistical learning, and deep learning. We expressly encourage
work that cuts across technical areas, or develops AI techniques in the
context of important application domains, such as healthcare,
sustainability, transportation, and commerce.

The full set of AAAI-18 keywords is available on the AAAI-18 keywords page
(link available July 1, 2017).

Emerging Topics
This year AAAI-18 especially encourages submissions in the emerging area of
effective collaboration between humans and AI systems and novel applications
thereof. Further details will be available in July 2017.

Author Registration
Authors must register at the AAAI-18 web-based technical track paper
submission site before they submit their abstracts and papers. The software
will assign a password, which will enable the author to log on to submit an
abstract and paper. To avoid last-minute congestion, authors are encouraged
to register well in advance of the September 8 abstract deadline.

* Abstract submission will close at 11:59 PM UTC-10 (midnight Hawaii) on September 8, 2017.
* Final paper submission will close at 11:59 PM UTC-10 on September 11, 2017.

Abstract and Paper Submission
Abstract submission is required by September 8, 2017. Authors should include
a full title for their paper, as well as a complete abstract in the fields
provided. Submissions that have "placeholder" (test, xyz, etc.) titles or
abstracts (or none at all) will be deleted. Authors of these types of
submissions will not be allowed to submit a full paper on September 11,

Papers must be formatted in AAAI two-column, camera-ready style; see the
author kit for details (see link at Papers must
be in trouble-free, high-resolution PDF format, formatted for US Letter
(8.5" x 11") paper, using Type 1 or TrueType fonts. AAAI submissions are
anonymous, and must conform to the instructions (detailed below) for
double-blind review. Submissions may have up to 8 pages with Page 8
containing nothing but references. For final papers, authors may purchase up
to two additional pages in the proceedings (see below for details). The last
page of final papers may contain text other than references, but all
references in the submitted paper should appear in the final version, unless
superseded. The AAAI copyright block is not required on submissions, but
must be included on final versions.

Electronic abstract and paper submission through the AAAI-18 paper
submission site is required on or before the deadlines listed above. We
cannot admit submissions by e-mail or fax. Authors will receive confirmation
of receipt of their abstracts or papers, including an ID number, shortly
after submission. AAAI will contact authors again only if problems are
encountered with papers. Inquiries regarding paper receipt must be made no
later than September 13, 2017.

Submission Limit
This year AAAI-18 is enforcing a strict submission limit. Each individual
author is limited to no more than 10 submissions to AAAI-18 and authors may
not be added to papers following submission.

Resubmissions of Substantially Improved IJCAI-17 and NIPS-17 Submissions
Authors of declined IJCAI-17 and NIPS-17 submissions may submit
substantially improved versions to AAAI-18, optionally accompanied by a
cover letter that explains how the revised submission addresses the comments
of the IJCAI-17 and NIPS-17 reviewers. Such cover letters will be taken into
consideration in the AAAI-18 review process.

Supplemental Material
The length of the main submission is strictly limited as indicated
above. Authors may also choose to submit supplemental material as a second
file. Examples of supplemental material are proofs of theorems that are
stated in the main paper, or video demonstrations. Submissions may reference
the supplemental material, but should be self-contained. Reviewers are
instructed to make their evaluations based on the main submission, and are
not obligated to consult the supplemental material. If proofs or other
supplement matter are an important part of the contribution, their essential
elements should be included in the main paper. Please be very careful not to
violate the blind review requirements in the supplemental material.

Supplemental material submitted at the time of submission for review will
not be published or posted if the paper is accepted for publication. At the
time of the submission of a final paper for publication, a different
supplemental file is requested, which should contain all files necessary to
recompile the accepted paper.

Blind Review Instructions
Reviewing for the AAAI Conference is blind to the identities of the
authors. The first page, on which the paper body begins, should include the
title, abstract, content areas, and ID number (if available), but not names
or affiliations of the authors. The references should include all published
literature relevant to the paper, including previous works of the authors,
but should not include unpublished works. Acknowledgments of funding or
assistance should also be omitted. Submissions should not contain pointers
to supplemental material on the web.

When referring to one's own work, use the third person, rather than the
first person. For example, say "Previously, Newell (1996) showed that...,"
rather than "In our previous work (Newell 1996) we showed that..." Try to
avoid including any information that would identify the authors or their
affiliations. Such information may be added to the final camera-ready
version for publication.

Policy Concerning Submissions to Other Conferences or Journals AAAI-18 will
not consider any paper that, at the time of submission, is under review for
or has already been published or accepted for publication in a journal or
another conference. Once submitted to AAAI-18, authors may not submit the
paper elsewhere during AAAI's review period. These restrictions apply only
to refereed journals and conferences, not to unrefereed forums
(e.g. or workshops with a limited audience and without archival
proceedings. Authors must confirm that their submissions conform to these
requirements at the time of submission.

Review Process
Program committee (PC) members will be matched to submissions based on
research expertise and interest. Authors will have a limited opportunity to
respond to initial reviews. This author feedback will then be taken into
account in the final recommendations and reviews may be changed
accordingly. PC reviewers will make recommendations to the senior program
committee, who in turn will make recommendations to the program
co-chairs. The program co-chairs will make all final decisions following
full consultation with members of the senior PC during this process.

Accepted papers will be allocated seven (8) pages in the conference
proceedings; up to two (2) additional pages may be used at a cost to the
authors of $275 per page. Final papers found to exceed page limits and or
otherwise violating the instructions to authors will not be included in the
proceedings. Authors will be required to transfer copyright of their paper
to AAAI. Accepted papers will be available via the online schedule at the
conference, and will be available to the AAAI Digital Library and in hard
copy after the conference.

Conference Registration and Attendance
At least one author is required to register for the conference and be
available to present the paper, and we encourage all authors to attend if

During paper submission, authors will be able to express interest in
demonstrating their systems (if applicable) during a demonstration/poster
session and describe the features of their intended demonstration.

Journal Opportunities
A select set of top-rated papers may be nominated for fast track reviewing
at participating journals, including the AI Journal (AIJ) and the Journal of
Artificial Intelligence Research (JAIR). Nominated authors will be invited
to submit extended versions of their AAAI-18 papers for fast-track
