Call for Papers: AGI−15

July 22-25, Berlin

The eighth annual conference on Artificial General Intelligence (AGI−15) will take place in Berlin, July 22-25.

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:

  • Jürgen Schmidhuber on “The Deep Learning RNNaissance”
  • Frank Wood from Oxford, on Probabilistic Programming

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 EasyChair submission page is now open.

The proceedings of AGI-15 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 is April 6, 2015. Please submit your paper(s) on EasyChair by clicking on the following link:
