IJCAI is the International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence, the main international gathering of researchers in AI. The conference is sponsored jointly by IJCAI and the national AI societies of the host nation. The 26th International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence will be held in Melbourne from 19-25 August, 2017.
Melbourne, the most livable city in the world, is also home to a large array of academic institutions, technology companies and other important players in the artificial intelligence community. As such, Melbourne is an excellent venue for bringing both the industry and academia much closer.
The Demonstrations Track provides a unique opportunity in this regard. Its primary goals are: first, to provide a good framework for exchanging ideas between theory and practice; secondly, to showcase the applicability of different AI technologies to real-world problems.
Due to its interest, the AI Communications journal offers a fast-track review of extended versions of a selection of accepted submissions to the Demonstrations Track of IJCAI-17.
With regard to fields of application, we are seeking working systems on (but not limited to):
In particular, we also encourage submitters to the Main Track of IJCAI-17 to showcase their systems in the Demonstrations Track. Doing so, requires submitting your work twice (see SUBMISSION DETAILS AND REVIEW PROCESS). Note, however, that main track and demo track are run separately and no explicit coordination is offered, which suggests while one submission might be accepted in one track, it might be rejected (or not) in the other.
Industrial researchers and practitioners are encouraged to submit their works to the Demonstration track.

Demonstration Track Submission link: TBA
The submission should be a single PDF with the following content:
Submitted papers must be formatted according to IJCAI 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. All technical papers are due electronically on April 28, 2017 (11:59pm UTC- 12). Submissions received after the deadline or that do not meet the length or formatting requirements will not be considered for review (see the PAPER LENGTH AND FORMAT above). No email or fax submissions will be accepted. Notification of receipt of an electronically submitted paper will be emailed to the designated contact author soon after receipt. If there are problems with the electronic submission, the Demonstration Program Chair will contact the designated author by email. The designated author will be emailed notification of acceptance or rejection by June 9, 2017 (11:59pm UTC-12).
Papers will be 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 phase.
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.
Researchers and practitioners showing a demonstration 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 Demonstration Program Chair 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 allowed for every demo. If available and if space permits, additional tables or other space requirements may possibly be provided.
Please, send all enquiries about the Demonstration Track to the IJCAI 2017 Demonstration Program Chair - Associate Professor John Thangarajah, RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia.
