Call For Papers

The Ninth Annual Conference on Artificial General Intelligence, AGI-16,
will be held in New York City (July 16-19, 2016), as part of a
larger event —


This will be the first-ever Multi-conference focused on the creation
of thinking machines with capability at the human level and beyond.

Gary Marcus and Stephen Grossberg are lined up as keynote speakers,
and will be joined by 2-3 additional keynotes to be announced

HLAI-16 will include AGI-16, and also BICA-16 (Biologically Inspired
Cognitive Architectures), and the 2016 “Neural-Symbolic Learning and
Reasoning” and “AI and Cognition” Workshops. These four conferences
are normally held separately each year, at different times and
locations. But this year they are coming together in time and space
as a unique and unprecedented Multi-conference.

Furthermore, the HLAI-16 Multi-conference will occur immediately after
the IJCAI-16 (the largest international AI conference), which is also
in New York City.

AGI-16 will be organized just like previous AGI conferences, with the
same focus and structure. Registration for each of the conferences
within the multi-conference will be done separately. However, there
will be numerous common events: common keynotes, a common poster and
demo session, and a common multi-conference banquet. Most
importantly, all 4 events will be held together at the New School in
lower Manhattan, allowing free and wide-ranging HLAI and AGI
discussions among attendees and presenters at all 4 conferences.

Why a Human-Level AI Multi-conference in 2016?

Looking backward, 2016 is the 60th anniversary of the Dartmouth
Conferences, which effectively inaugurated the history of AI and
cognitive systems research.

Looking forward, 2016 is an unprecedentedly exciting time for AI R&D
in general. It is a time when we are seeing a constant stream of
practical and theoretical successes in various parts of the AI field.
And it is a time when the quest to create AI systems with general
intelligence at the human level and beyond is taken more seriously by
a broader community than ever before.

So 2016 is a perfect year to gather together an unprecedentedly large
number of serious researchers and developers in the areas of AGI and
Human-Level AI, for sharing ideas and results and planning
collaborative R&D.

And to top it all off, New York City in the summer is a fantastic place to be.

The paper submission deadline will be April 1, 2016; please see

for further relevant dates.

We hope to see you in New York!
