The Thirty-Fifth AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence was held virtually from February 2–9, 2021. The conference program cochairs were Kevin Leyton-Brown (University of British Columbia, Canada)and Mausam (Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, India.
The surge in public interest in AI technologies, which we have witnessed over the past few years, continued to accelerate in 2020–2021, with the societal and economic impact of AI becoming a central point of public and government discussion worldwide. AAAI-21 again 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-21 program consisted of a core technical program of original research presentations, including a special track on AI for social impact. It additionally featured a broad range of tutorials, workshops, invited talks, panels, student abstracts, demonstrations, and presentations by senior members. Included in this year's proceedings for the first time are papers from the newly founded AAAI Undergraduate Consortium. The conference also continued its tradition of colocating with the long-running Innovative Applications of Artificial Intelligence conference (cochaired by Neil Yorke-Smith, TU Delft, Netherlands, and Meinolf Sellmann, General Electric, USA). The IAAI papers are included in this proceedings. Also included are the papers from the Symposium on Educational Advances in Artificial Intelligence (cochaired by Lisa Torre, St. Lawrence University, USA and Michael Guerzhoy, Princeton University, USA).
The proceedings have been published in 18 consecutive issues. This issue (volume 35 no. 18) consists of 421 pages and four tracks:
