The Pacific Rim International Conference on Artificial Intelligence (PRICAI) is an international event which concentrates on theories, technologies and applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the areas of social and economic importance for countries in the Asia Pacific region. The 16th PRICAI (2019) will be held at Yanuca Island, Cuvu, Fiji.

The Program Committee invites technical papers on substantial, original, and unpublished research in all aspects of Artificial Intelligence. PRICAI-2019 aims to bring together scholars, practitioners, educators and users from the diverse field of AI.

Industry Track

PRICAI-2019 will feature an Industry track, and invites researchers, developers, entrepreneurs and emerging startups that focus on AI solutions for real world products and services to share experiences and insights with academic experts and other industry focused researchers. Formatting and submission guidelines for the main conference apply to Industry track papers. Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings of PRICAI-19.

Paper Submission

Proceedings of PRICAI-2019 will be published by Springer as a volume of Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) series. All papers (main conference and special track) should be submitted electronically using the conference management tool in PDF format and formatted using the Springer LNAI template. Submitted papers should not exceed 12 pages (excluding references). Submitted papers must not be published or under consideration to be published elsewhere.

PRICAI reviewing is double blind, i.e., the authors do not know the names of the reviewers, and the reviewers cannot infer the names of the authors from the submission. The authors should avoid providing information that may identify themselves in any part of the submission. Violation of this guideline may lead to rejection without review. Paper submission will be available soon.
