On behalf of the Conference Committee of the Twenty-First International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence, we invite you to participate in the sponsor program for IJCAI-09. The conference will be held July 11-17, 2009 in Pasadena, California. This unique Southern California venue will place IJCAI in the center of the aerospace and entertainment industries, both of which develop and make use of AI technology extensively. The theme of IJCAI-09 is "The Interdisciplinary Reach of Artificial Intelligence," with a focus on the broad impact of artificial intelligence on science, engineering, medicine, social sciences, arts and humanities. IJCAI-09 is sponsored jointly by IJCAI and AAAI.

IJCAI is held every two years, rotating its venue among North American, Pacific Rim, and European venues. IJCAI-09 will be the first North American conference since 2003 (Acapulco, Mexico), and the first in the United States since 2001 (Seattle), which attracted well over 1,200 AI researchers and practitioners, representing government, university and corporate research facilities from throughout the world. Your participation in the IJCAI-09 Sponsor Program will give you instant visibility and access to this diverse group of AI professionals, representing a host of research areas including robotics, the semantic web, integrated intelligent technology, agents, automated planning, interactive digital entertainment, education, and expert systems, to name only a few.

As part of most levels of sponsorship, you will be provided with a table-top exhibit throughout the technical portion of the conference. This heightened visibility will provide an opportunity for one-on-one exchange with conference participants. Whether you want to showcase your intelligent technology to the AI community, or tap into this incredible source of talent, IJCAI-09 is the premier venue to accomplish these goals.

Each IJCAI-09 Sponsor will receive the following benefits:

  • Company name and/or logo prominently displayed on:
    • Printed materials, as schedule permits
    • IJCAI-09 website and proceedings
    • IJCAI-09 registration area
