The Thirty-Fourth AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence was held on February 7–12, 2020 in New York, New York, USA. The program chairs were Vincent Conitzer (Duke University, USA) and Fei Sha (Google Research and University of Southern California, USA).
The surge in public interest in AI technologies, which we have witnessed over the past few years, continued to accelerate in 2019–2020, with the societal and economic impact of AI becoming a central point of public and government discussion worldwide. AAAI-20 saw submissions and attendance numbers that were records in the history of the AAAI series of conferences and continued its tradition of attracting top-quality papers from all areas of AI. We were excited to see increases in submissions across almost all areas.
The AAAI-20 program consisted of a core technical program of original research presentations, including a special track on AI for social impact and a sister conference track. It additionally featured a broad range of tutorials, workshops, invited talks, panels, student abstracts, a debate, and presentations by senior members. The program was rounded out by technical demonstrations, exhibits, an AI job fair, the AI in Practice program, a student outreach program, and a game night. The conference also continued its tradition of colocating with the long-running IAAI conference (chaired by Ruchir Puri (IBM Research, USA) and cochaired byNeil Yorke-Smith (TU Delft, Netherlands); and the EAAI symposium (cochaired by The Nate Derbinsky (Northeastern University, USA) and Lisa Torrey (St. Lawrence University, USA), as well as the newer conference on AI, Ethics, and Society.
The proceedings have been published in 10 consecutive issues. This issue (volume 34 no. 9) consists of the papers of the Tenth Symposium on Educational Advances of Artificial Intelligence (cochaired by Nate Derbinsky and Lisa Torrey), the Senior Member, Demonstration (cochaired by Judy Goldsmith and Sven Koenig), and Sister Conference programs (357 pages) (cochaired by Thomas Schiex).
