IJCAI-09 Industry Day
July 17, 2009

The 21st International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI-09) will be held in Pasadena in July 2009. This is the premier forum in the world for bringing together researchers and practitioners from academia, industry and government who are developing and/or utilizing AI-based capabilities. The theme of the 2009 conference is "The Interdisciplinary Reach of Artificial Intelligence" and a byline is "Southern California is a home to the aerospace and entertainment industries."

On behalf of the IJCAI-09 Local Arrangements Committee (LAC) and Conference Committee, we would like to invite participation from local and other industry in certain aspects of the IJCAI-09 program. In particular, there are three parts of the conference program we¹d like to bring to your attention:

Industry Day

This is a one-day session scheduled for Friday, July 17, 2009, intended to be a forum for industry to "tell their AI story." The content is entirely up to the industry participants. The forum can be utilized for networking, recruiting, marketing, or even just bragging. All conference registrants have access to the Industry Day event. The day will be structured around a panel and a series of industry presentations.
