The Program Committee of the Twenty-sixth International Joint Conference on
Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI-17) invites the submission of technical
papers for the main technical track of the conference which will be held in
Melbourne, Australia, from August 19th to August 25th, 2017. Submissions
are invited on significant, original, and previously unpublished research
on all aspects of artificial intelligence. All papers will receive mindful
and rigorous reviews. For nearly a half-century, IJCAI has remained the
premier conference bringing together the international AI community in
communicating the advances and celebrating the achievements of artificial
intelligence research and practice. With the current explosive interest in
AI and its applications, this 26th edition of the conference is guaranteed
to provide an exciting forum to present and hear about cutting-edge
research in AI.

A special theme of IJCAI-17 is Autonomy. While autonomy has been a focus of
interest in the research community for many years, recent developments in
the adoption of artificial intelligence and other technologies across many
different areas of endeavour have brought new challenges or have made
real those that until now had been largely abstract and theoretical. The
increasing number of major corporations developing autonomous cars, the use
of autonomous vehicles in the sea and in the air, the proliferation of
drones for different purposes including military ones, and the availability
of personal assistants via the desktop or smartphone are just some examples
of the ways in which these challenges are facing us in everyday life. In
recognition of this trend, and in support of addressing some of
these challenges, this Special Track seeks to foster discussion and debate
around the issues brought forward by this new generation of technologies
and applications. We seek papers that
address or consider the challenges across multiple different dimensions:
Technical, Philosophical, Legal, and Social.

The scientific program of IJCAI 2017 will also contain Workshops,
Tutorials, Demonstrations, Robotic Exhibitions, a Doctoral consortium, and
will host different software, video, and robotics competitions.

Several other AI events will be held in Melbourne and other parts of
Australia close to these dates, offering attendees a variety of choices for
an extended itinerary. These events will include the
International Conference on Principles and Practice of Constraint
Programming (CP), the International Conference on Theory and Applications
of Satisfiability Testing (SAT), International Conference on Logic
Programming (ICLP), the Australasian Joint Conference on Artificial
Intelligence (AI), Australasian Conference on Data Mining (AusDM),
International Conference on Knowledge Science, Engineering, and
Management (KSEM); all to be held in Melbourne. The International
Conference on Machine Learning (ICML) will also be held
in Sydney Australia shortly before IJCAI 2017.

The conference will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition
Centre, a space that has won numerous awards for its architecture and
interior design. Conveniently located on the banks of the Yarra River the
convention centre is within walking distance of the city centre and a wide
range of restaurants and hotels, with options suitable for all budgets. The
workshops and tutorials will be held at close by RMIT University, one of
the largest universities in Australia. There is a free tram that runs
between RMIT and a block away from the convention centre.
