Call for Papers

The Pacific Rim International Conference on Artificial Intelligence (PRICAI) is a biennial international event which concentrates on AI theories, technologies and their applications in the areas of social and economic importance for countries in the Pacific Rim. In the past, the conferences have been held in Nagoya (1990), Seoul (1992), Beijing (1994), Cairns (1996), Singapore (1998), Melbourne (2000), Tokyo (2002), Auckland (2004), Guilin (2006), Hanoi (2008), Daegu (2010), Kuching (2012), Gold Coast (2014), Phuket (2016), Nanjing (2018), Fiji (2019), Yokohama (2020, online) and Hanoi (2021, online).

The 19th PRICAI (2022) will be held as a hybrid conference with both physical and online options in Shanghai, China (depending on the COVID situation in Shanghai). The Program Committee invites technical papers on substantial, original, and unpublished research in all aspects of Artificial Intelligence. PRICAI-2022 aims to bring together researchers, practitioners, educators and users in AI and related communities for in-depth intellectual exchanges, research cooperation and professional development.

Industry Track

PRICAI-2022 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-22.

Paper Submission

Proceedings of PRICAI-2022 will be published by Springer as a volume of Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) series. All papers 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 Submitted papers must not be published or under consideration to be published elsewhere.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. See Submission for more details.

Call for Workshop and Tutorial Proposal

The PRICAI-2022 organizers also invite workshop and tutorial proposals in the all areas of Artificial Intelligence in various topics. See Call for Workshop and Call for Tutorials for more details.
