The AGI conference series (http://www.agi-conf.org/) is the premier international forum for cutting-edge research focusing on the original goal of the AI field — the creation of thinking machines with general intelligence at the human level and ultimately beyond. The AGI conference series is held in cooperation with AAAI, and AGI-13 will co-locate with IJCAI-13.

Like its predecessors, AGI-13 will gather researchers in AGI and associated disciplines for wide-ranging presentation and discussion of approaches, architectures, algorithms and ideas relevant to the advancement of artificial general intelligence.


As in prior AGI conferences, we welcome papers on all aspects of AGI R&D, with the key proviso that each paper should in some way contribute specifically to the development of Artificial General Intelligence. Appropriate topics for contributed papers include, but are not restricted to:

Agent Architectures / Autonomy / Benchmarks and Evaluation / Cognitive Modeling / Collaborative Intelligence / Creativity / Distributed AI / Implications of AGI for Society, Economy and Ecology / Integration of Different Capabilities / Knowledge Representation for General Intelligence / Languages, Specification Approaches and Toolkits / Learning and Learning Theory / Motivation, Emotion, and Affect / Multi-Agent Interaction / Natural Language Understanding / Neural-Symbolic Processing / Perception and Perceptual Modeling / Philosophy of AI / Rationality / Reasoning, Inference, and Planning / Robotics and Virtual Embodiment / Simulation and Emergent Behavior / Panel Discussions

The conference will be divided into themed sessions, determined based on the distribution of topics of the accepted papers; and each themed session will be concluded by a panel discussion.

==Special Session on Cognitive Robotics and AGI==

In the spirit of similar Special Sessions at former AGI conferences, this Special Session will feature papers giving new AGI ideas inspired by current research in Cognitive Robotics.


AGI-13 will include the following workshops:

* Formalizing Mechanisms for Artificial General Intelligence and Cognition (Formal MAGIC)
* Probability Theory or Not? Practical and Theoretical Concerns on Uncertainty Handling in AGI

Tutorials and demonstrations will be held alongside the conference. Please see the linked webpages for details.


* Sam S. Adams, Distinguished Engineer, IBM Research and CTO, Contextual Computing
* Thomas G. Dietterich, President-Elect of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence, Oregon State University
* Dileep George, Vicarious Systems, Inc.

==Important Dates==

Full paper submission: March 24, 2013, 11:59 p.m. Hawaii time.
Acceptance Notification: April 30, 2013
Camera-ready copy: May 15, 2013
Conference: July 31, 2013 – August 3, 2013

==Submission Information==

Main conference papers should be submitted via EasyChair ( https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=agi2013 ).
The Special Session on Cognitive Robotics and AGI has its own submission procedure, as specified at its website.

The conference papers will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) series. Paper templates for both LaTeX (preferred) and Word may be found here: http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs/lncs+authors?SGWID=0-40209-0-0-0 . Use the templates for “LNCS Proceedings and Other Multiauthor Volumes”.

Papers must be in English, and submitted in PDF format. There are two types of submissions:

Full papers (up to 10 pages): Original research in the above areas.
Technical Communications (up to 4 pages): Results and ideas with interest to the AGI audience, including reports about recent own publications, position papers, and preliminary results.
All accepted conference papers will be included in the proceedings, as well as presented at the conference as talks or as posters. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference and present the paper there.
