IJCAI-97 Video Track : Call For Videos
As a medium, videotapes are better suited than written papers to
the efficacy of AI research, especially in the emerging and exciting
areas of AI in Education, Art, Music, Entertainment, Hypermedia, 3-D
Animation, Artificial Life, Network-Based tools like Mosaic, etc.
If a picture is worth thousand words, then a (3-D) movie will certainly
enhance the illustration of behaviors of these systems that are based on
AI principles, methods, and tools.
Recognizing this potential of video presentations to demonstrate and
augment AI research results, a Video Track has been designated since
IJCAI-89 to be an integral part of the Technical Programs of IJCAI
The Video Track is designed to demonstrate the current levels of
usefulness of AI tools, techniques, and methods for a variety of
practical and theoretical problems arising in industrial, commercial,
government, space, and educational areas.
You are invited and strongly encouraged to submit to this video track
and take advantage of the following opportunities and benefits that
we intend to provide as a forum to showcase your best AI research results.
We look forward to your submissions that will contribute to the success
of the IJCAI-97 Video Track.
- Special video sessions will be organised and timetabled as part
of the conference, giving authors an opportunity to present and
briefly discuss their videos.
- Abstracts of accepted videos will appear in the conference
- The entire video program will be published by IJCAI Inc. and
available for sale after the conference.
- Apart from the scheduled video sessions where the authors will
participate in the presentations, we also plan to make the video
program widely viewable by the conference attendees by
designating certain time periods during which the videos will run
