Call for Papers


Call for Papers: AGI−14

Aug. 1–4 2014, Quebec City

The seventh annual conference on Artificial General Intelligence (AGI−14) will take place in Quebec City, August 1–4.  AGI−14 will be co-located with and immediately after AAAI−14 and CogSci 2014.

The AGI conference series is the premier international event aimed at advancing the state of knowledge regarding the original goal of the AI field the creation of thinking machines with general intelligence at the human level and possibly beyond.   

Information on the previous AGI conferences may be found here.

Keynote speakers:

  • Yoshua Bengio, University of Montreal: Deep Learning for AI
  • Alexander Wisner-Gross, Harvard & MIT: The Thermodynamics of AGI

As in prior AGI conferences, we welcome contributed papers on all aspects of AGI R&D, with the key proviso that each paper should somehow contribute specifically to the development of Artificial General Intelligence.

The proceedings of AGI-14 will be published as a book in Springer’s Lecture Notes in AI series, and all the accepted papers will be available online. Papers must be written in either LaTeX (preferred) [template] or Word [2007 template][2003 template].  Two types of papers will be accepted:

  • Regular papers, with a length limit of 10 pages, presenting new research results or rigorously describing new research ideas
  • Short technical communications, with a limit of 4 pages, summarizing results and ideas of interest to the AGI audience, including reports about recent publications, position papers, and preliminary results.

The submission deadline was originally March 15, 2014 , but has been extended till April 1.  The EasyChair submission page is now open.

Appropriate topics for contributed papers include, but are not restricted to:

  • Agent Architectures
  • Autonomy
  • Benchmarks and Evaluation
  • Cognitive Modeling
  • Collaborative Intelligence
  • Creativity
  • Distributed AI
  • Formal Models of General Intelligence
  • 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 AGI
  • Reasoning, Inference and Planning
  • Reinforcement Learning
  • Robotic and Virtual Embodiment
  • Simulation and Emergent Behavior
  • Solomonoff Induction

Workshops and Tutorials:
AGI-14 will include a Workshop on AGI & Cognitive Science.   Additional workshops and tutorials will be determined during the coming months.

If you wish to propose a tutorial or a workshop in relation with Artificial General Intelligence, please email a brief proposal to Conference Chair Ben Goertzel (ben AT goertzel DOT org), or Program Committee Chairs Laurent Orseau or Javier Snaider.
