Call for Papers and Submission
The 34th Canadian Conference on Artificial Intelligence (Canadian AI 2021) will take place virtually in Vancouver, 25 May to 28 May, 2021. The event is collocated with the Computer and Robot Vision (CRV) conference. These events (AI·CRV 2021) will bring together hundreds of leaders in research, industry, and government, as well as Canada's most accomplished students. They showcase Canada's ingenuity, innovation and leadership in intelligent systems and advanced information and communications technology.
We invite papers that present original work in all areas of Artificial Intelligence, either theoretical or applied. Canadian AI 2021 welcomes submissions on topics including (but not limited to):
- Agent Systems
- AI Applications
- Automated Reasoning
- Bioinformatics and BioNLP
- Case‐based Reasoning
- Cognitive Models
- Constraint Satisfaction
- Data Mining
- Evolutionary Computation
- Information Retrieval and Search
- Information and Knowledge Management
- Knowledge Representation
- Machine Learning
- Multimedia Processing
- Natural Language Processing
- Neural Nets and Deep Learning
- Privacy-preserving Computation
- User Modeling
- Web Mining and Applications
We expressly encourage work that cuts across technical areas or applies AI techniques in the context of important domains such as e-commerce, games, healthcare, sustainability, and transportation.
We also welcome the submission of position papers, which present evidence-based arguments for a particular point of view without necessarily presenting a new system. There will be an option during the submission process to indicate that a paper is a position paper.
We are glad to announce that Canadian AI 2021 has the following confirmed keynote speakers: Doina Precup (McGill University), Graham Taylor (University of Guelph), and Osmar R. Zaïane (University of Alberta).
Submission deadline: February 12th, 2021 extended to February 21st (11:59 p.m. UTC-12)
Author notification: 6 April, 2021
Final papers due: 19 April, 2021, extended to 25 April, 2021
Main conference: 25 May to 28 May, 2021
We invite submissions of both long and short papers. Long papers must be no longer than 12 pages, and Short papers must be no longer than 6 pages, including references, formatted using the conference template. The authors should consult the authors’ guidelines and use one of the two provided proceedings templates for LaTeX to prepare their papers. We have two templates, depending on the LaTeX editor you prefer: one for Overleaf and one for TexWorks or other editors. Pick the one that works best for you.
Papers submitted to the conference must not have already been published, or accepted for publication, or be under review by a journal or another conference. Submissions will go through a double-blind review process by Program Committee members to assess originality, significance, technical merit, and clarity of presentation. As such, submissions must be anonymized, and papers that fail to do so will be rejected without review. A “Best Paper Award” and a “Best Student Paper Award” will be given at the conference respectively to the authors of each best paper, as judged by the Best Paper Award Selection Committee.
Submissions will be via EasyChair at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cai2021 .

The conference proceedings will be published in PubPub open access online format (https://www.pubpub.org/), and submitted to be indexed/abstracted in leading indexing services such as DBLP, ACM, Google Scholar. A paper will be accepted either as a long or as a short paper. Long papers will be allocated 12 pages while short papers will be allocated 6 pages in the proceedings. Authors of accepted papers will be allocated time for an oral presentation at the conference and will have the opportunity to present their work in a poster session. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to attend the conference to present the work. The authors must agree to this requirement prior to submitting their paper for review.
