Proceedings of the 23rd International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence
IJCAI is the International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence, the main international gathering of researchers in AI. IJCAI has been held biennially in odd-numbered years from 1969 until 2015. The theme of IJCAI 2013 is ”AI and computational sustainability”. AI can play a key role in addressing environmental, economic, and societal challenges concerning sustainable development and a sustainable future. AI techniques and methodologies can be exploited to help address sustainability problems and questions, for example to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the way we manage and allocate our natural and societal resources. The study of sustainability questions will also enrich and transform AI, by providing new challenges.
