IJCAI-PRICAI 2020 Call for Papers: Demonstrations Track

The 29th International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence and
the 17th Pacific Rim International Conference on Artificial
Intelligence (IJCAI-PRICAI 2020) will be held in Yokohama, Japan, from
July 11th to July 17th, 2020. In addition to the main track,
IJCAI-PRICAI 2020 includes a track on demonstrations of AI-related
systems and implementations.

The primary goals of the Demonstrations Track are to provide a
platform for exchanging inspiring ideas between theory and practice
and to showcase the applicability of different AI technologies to
real-world problems.

Accepted demo papers will be included in IJCAI proceedings.

In addition, two awards will be given to honor outstanding demonstrations:

*Innovation Award for the demonstration with the most original and
significant research methodologies.

*Application Impact Award for the demonstration with the highest impact
in a real-world application.


As the premier general conference on AI, IJCAI-PRICAI 2020 welcomes
submissions across all areas of AI. the Demonstrations Track of
IJCAI-PRICAI 2020 follows this principle, with an emphasis on
implemented systems and the applicability of AI to practice. The scope
includes (but is not limited to) the following subfields of AI:

Computer Vision
Constraints and Satisfiability
Game Playing
Heuristic Search
Human-Computer Interactive Systems
Machine Learning
Multi-agent Systems
Natural Language Processing
Knowledge Representation and Reasoning
Planning and Scheduling
Recommender Systems
Speech Processing
Uncertainty in AI

Please note that Robotics is not included since IJCAI-PRICAI 2020 will
also feature a Robot Exhibition and we encourage robotics
demonstrations to be submitted there.

We encourage all submissions that describe innovative, high-quality AI
research addressing real-world problems. Demos are expected to show
the applicability of different AI techniques with a strong emphasis on
the issues that have to be addressed to bring these to practice.

In particular, we encourage submitters to the Main Track of
IJCAI-PRICAI 2020 to showcase their systems in the Demonstrations
Track. Doing so requires submitting your work twice (see Submission
Details and Review Process). Note, however, that the main track and
the demonstrations track are run separately and no explicit
coordination is offered, which suggests that while one submission
might be accepted in one track, it might be rejected (or not) in the

In addition to academia, industrial researchers and practitioners are
encouraged to submit their works to the Demonstrations track.

Important Dates (Demonstrations Track)

Submission site opens: February 3, 2020
Abstract registration deadline: February 24 (11:59pm UTC-12)
Paper submission deadline: February 28 (11:59pm UTC-12)
Notification of acceptance/rejection: April 5
Camera-ready copy due: April 19

Modes of demo presentation

IJCAI-PRICAI 2020 will offer two modes of presenting demos:

*The traditional demo mode, where the demonstration is presented in a
booth during the demonstrations session.

*A demonstration talk mode, where Demo submitters have ten minutes to
present their demos in a “frontal” slide / video presentation.

Note that the two options are not exclusive. However, the authors must
specify at the time of submission whether they choose traditional
demo, demonstration talk, or both.

Submission Details and Review Process

Paper templates: http://www.ijcai.org/authors_kit
Submission site: https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/IJCAIDemos2020

The submitted document must be a single PDF. The paper should describe
the application domain, the problem scenario, the technology used, the
AI techniques involved, the original contribution and innovations of
the system, live and interactive aspects, etc. Papers must be prepared
in PDF format using the IJCAI style. Submissions are NOT
anonymous. The page limit is 3 pages in total: 2 pages for the main
text (including all figures but excluding references), and one
additional page for references. Over-length papers will be rejected
without review.

Furthermore, the authors must at the time of submission provide the
following information based on their choice of mode of demonstration.

*Traditional demo mode: For a presentation in the traditional demo
mode, the authors should provide a list of requirements/description
of the demo setting, for example, floor space, table, poster,
monitor, potential noise/sound issues etc. This list should be
attached to the paper on a separate page not counted towards the
3-page limit. This page will not be part of the final published

*Demonstration talk: For a demonstration talk, the authors should
provide in their submission a URL linking to a demonstration video
(e.g., YouTube) no more than 10 minutes in length showing what will
be projected on screen. Otherwise, the authors have the choice of
submitting a URL linking to a demonstration video no more than 10
minutes in length (e.g., YouTube) or a Powerpoint presentation
showing and explaining what happens. Other formats are also possible
if they can more clearly illustrate the demo. The essential objective
of the demo talk is to give a precise idea of what the demo will look

Submitted papers must be formatted according to the IJCAI-PRICAI 2020
main track guidelines and submitted electronically through the
submission link mentioned above. At least one author of each accepted
paper is required to attend the conference to present the
work. Authors will be required to agree to this requirement at the
time of submission. Submissions that do not meet the length or
formatting requirements will not be considered for review (see
Submission Details). No email or fax submissions will be
accepted. Notification of receipt of an electronically submitted paper
will be emailed automatically to the designated contact author soon
after receipt. If there are problems with the electronic submission,
the Demonstrations Track Co-Chairs will contact the designated author
by email.

Papers will be peer-reviewed by program committee members. Selection
criteria include originality, innovation, applicability and potential
benefits of the resulting system. Note that there will be no rebuttal


When submitting their paper, authors will be required to choose
content area keywords. General categories should only be used if
specific categories do not apply or do not accurately reflect the main
contributions. The full list of keywords will be available on the
submission site.


The presenters of accepted demonstrations are required to bring all
necessary equipment and material for the successful operation of their
exhibit. IJCAI will provide shipping instructions, if needed, for the
delivery of material to the conference site. Special electrical
connections must be arranged through the Demonstrations Track
Co-Chairs no later than 45 days prior to the start of the
conference. Electrical and Internet service will be made available to
confirmed exhibitors.

Tabletops will be provided for every demo in traditional mode. If
available and if space permits, additional tables or other space
requirements may possibly be provided.

Confidentiality Policy

All submissions will be treated in strict confidence until the
publication date.

Conflict of Interest Policy

All people involved in the IJCAI-PRICAI 2020 review process adhere to
the IJCAI conflict of interest policy. Details can be found at

Submission Restrictions

The main track of IJCAI-PRICAI 2020 is enforcing a submission limit of
no more than six submissions per individual author. However, papers
submitted to the demonstration track do not count for this number of
submissions. The list of authors provided at submission time is
final. Authors may not be added to, or removed from, papers following
submission. (However, author ordering may still be changed.) Also, by
submitting a paper to IJCAI-PRICAI 2020, authors must acknowledge that
they will do their best to contribute in some way to the review
process, if asked to.
