The 33rd International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI 2024) will be held in Jeju Island, South Korea, from August 3rd to August 9th, 2024. The technical program committee invites the submission of demos.
The two primary goals of the Demonstration (Demo) Track are to
(1) provide a platform for exchanging inspiring ideas between theory and practice, and
(2) showcase the applicability of different AI systems to real-world problems.
Accepted demo papers will be included in the IJCAI proceedings. In addition, an Innovation Award will be given to an outstanding demonstration with the most original and significant research methodologies.
As the premier general conference on AI, IJCAI 2024 welcomes submissions across all areas of AI. The Demonstration Track of IJCAI 2024 follows this principle, though with an emphasis on the applicability of AI to practice. Moreover, the track scope includes (but is not limited to) the following subfields of AI:
- AI and Social Good
- Arts and Creativity
- Computer Vision
- Constraint Programming
- Game Playing
- Heuristic Search
- Human-Computer Interactive Systems
- Machine Learning
- Multi-agent Systems
- Natural Language Processing
- Knowledge Representation and Reasoning
- Planning and Scheduling
- Recommender Systems
- Speech Processing
- Uncertainty in AI
We encourage all submissions that describe innovative, high-quality AI research addressing real-world problems. Demos are expected to show the applicability of different AI, emphasizing the issues that must be addressed to put them into practice.
We welcome all demo submissions. However, if the demo has a strong focus on robotics, then we would suggest that the Robot Exhibition might be a better fit.
Authors of papers that are submitted to other IJCAI tracks are welcome to also submit to the Demonstration Track so as to showcase their AI systems. Note that the conference tracks are run separately and there is no explicit coordination offered. Any work submitted to the Demonstration Track is required to follow the requirements and formatting for the track (see Submission Details and Review Process).
The organizers of competitions and challenges in IJCAI 2023 are encouraged to submit a demo paper at IJCAI 2024 following the same demo submission requirements (see Submission Details and Review Process), additionally summarizing their experience at the 2023 conference and results/findings.
Submission Deadline: February 19, 2024
Notification Deadline: April 18, 2024
Camera Ready Deadline: TBD
Note: All deadlines are Anywhere On Earth, UTC-12.
Modes of Demo Presentation
IJCAI 2024 will offer two modes of presenting demos:
- The traditional demo mode, where the demonstration is presented in a booth during the demonstration session.
- A demonstration talk mode, where Demo authors have ten minutes to present their demos in a “frontal” slide/video presentation.
Formatting Guidelines: The updated LaTeX Styles and Word Template are available at https://www.ijcai.org/authors_kit.
Submission Site: The Demonstration Track will share the same CMT installation as most of the other IJCAI 2024 tracks, and authors will go to the IJCAI submission site and choose “Demos” from the drop-down menu.
Keywords: When submitting their paper, authors must 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.
Submissions to the Demonstration Track should describe the system to be demonstrated, the application domain, the problem scenario, the technology used, the AI techniques involved, the original contribution and innovations of the system, live and interactive aspects, etc. Indicate links to any supplementary materials.
In addition, the submitted document has to provide a URL linking to a demonstration video no more than 10 minutes in length. This demo video may be a mixture or combination of an actual demo and voice-over (Powerpoint, PDF slides, etc.) and screencast presentations showing and explaining what happens. Other formats are also possible if they can more clearly illustrate the demo. The essential objective of the demo talk is to give a precise idea of what the demo will look like.
Paper Format: Papers must be formatted according to the IJCAI 2024 guidelines (link above). The submitted document must be a single PDF. Submissions that violate the IJCAI 2024 style (e.g., by decreasing margins or font sizes) will be rejected without review.
Paper Length: The page limit is 5 pages: 3 pages for the main text (including all figures/tables) and up to two additional pages for references. Over-length papers will be rejected without review. For accepted papers, acknowledgments and a contribution statement of each co-author to the paper can be optionally included in the two reference pages.
Anonymity: Submissions are NOT anonymous.
Ethics Statement: Authors may include a statement of the potential broader impact of their work, including its ethical aspects and future societal consequences. This part can be put in either the main body of the paper or on the reference pages. It is optional but is highly recommended for papers working with sensitive data or on sensitive tasks. For additional information, please refer to the “Ethics policy and ethics statement” section of the IJCAI submission guidelines (https://ijcai24.org/call-for-papers/).
Usages of Generative AI: Generative AI models, including Chat-GPT, BARD, LLaMA, or similar LLMs, do not satisfy the criteria for authorship of papers published in IJCAI 2024. If authors use an LLM in any part of the paper-writing process they assume full responsibility for all content, including checking for plagiarism and correctness of all text. We encourage papers that describe research on or involving LLMs. Text generated by an LLM as part of the paper’s methodology or experimental analysis is allowed but needs to be properly documented and described in the paper.
Papers will be peer-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.
Participation: At least one author of each accepted demo is required to participate and present the work. We are looking forward to the community meeting in person.
Conflict of Interest Policy: All people involved in the IJCAI 2024 review process adhere to the IJCAI conflict of interest policy. Details can be found at: https://www.ijcai.org/IJCAI_Conflict_of_Interest_Policy.pdf. Authors and reviewers acknowledge that IJCAI may take action against individuals in breach of the conflict of interest policy, including but not limited to rejecting their submissions without further review and banning individuals from submitting their work to a limited number of IJCAI conferences in the future.
Confidentiality Policy: All submissions will be treated in strict confidence until the publication date.
