Call for system demonstrations: ECAI 2016

The biennial European Conference  on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI) is Europe’s premier venue for presenting  scientific results in AI. Under the general theme of “AI for human values”, the 22nd edition of ECAI will be held in the city of The Hague, in sight the Peace Palace, seat of the International Court of Justice, a location highly appropriate to the conference theme.

We invite the submission of system demonstrations in the form of life software demo’s or canned video’s, to be shown at the demo and poster market on all days of the main conference.

The System Demonstrations track provides AI researchers and practitioners with an opportunity to demonstrate impressive and innovative systems employing AI methods. We invite applications for demonstrations of a non-commercial nature from universities, research institutes and industry. Commercial demos may approach the ECAI 2016 sponsor chair for further information (sponsorship@ecai2016.org). The aim of a demonstration should be to make the attendees aware and enthusiastic about the applications of AI methods. It also provides an opportunity to obtain feedback from the AI community.
