Call for papers
The 35th Canadian Conference on Artificial Intelligence (Canadian AI 2022) will take place virtually in Toronto from 30 May to 3 June, 2022. The event is collocated with the Computer and Robot Vision conferences. These events (AI·CRV 2022) 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 2022 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
- Ethics of Artificial Intelligence
- Evolutionary Computation
- Information Retrieval and Search
- Intelligent Tutoring Systems
- Information and Knowledge Management
- Knowledge Representation and Reasoning
- Machine Learning
- Multimedia Processing
- Natural Language Processing
- Neural Nets and Deep Learning
- Privacy and Security
- 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, transportation, Internet of Things, and agriculture.
Moreover, we plan to have a collocated event on Ethics of AI, with a joint invited keynote and other activities related to this topic. We therefore encourage papers highlighting research in this specific area.
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.
Submission deadline (extended): 18 February 2022 (11:59 p.m. UTC-12)
Author notification: 21 March 2022
Final papers due: 5 April 2022
Main conference: 30 May to 2 June 2022
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 this proceedings template for LaTeX to prepare their papers. Alternatively, we provide this Microsoft Word template for authors unfamiliar with Latex.
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.

The authors must agree to this requirement prior to submitting their paper for review.
