 Covid Update

Dear IJCAI-PRICAI Community,

We would like to provide an update to our community about our plans and response to the novel coronavirus pandemic. The situation is of course continuing to change rapidly -- but first and foremost, we want to reassure everyone that IJCAI-PRICAI-2020 will take place in some form, and papers accepted to IJCAI-PRICAI will be published in our proceedings.

We will be keeping open the possibility of an in-person meeting as long as possible, in the hopes that things will look very different by late May. But it is looking more likely that even by July, it may still be crucial to avoid large group meetings or travel, as it is now. We are therefore making backup plans for either a delayed conference or a virtual (online) conference. We’re getting advice from other conferences that are going virtual, and working out the best ways to offer talks, workshops, and tutorials without losing the social aspect that has always been a central part of our meetings and our community.

We especially want to thank all of you in our community for the warm wishes, help, and support you have been providing to the whole IJCAI-PRICAI-2020 committee as we try to manage this extremely difficult problem. We understand that everyone has lots of questions and we’ll continue to keep you updated as we know more. Please take care of yourself and each other.

Best regards,
IJCAI-PRICAI-2020 Conference Committee

 Welcome to IJCAI-PRICAI 2020

Welcome to IJCAI-PRICAI2020, the 29th International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence and the 17th Pacific Rim International Conference on Artificial Intelligence. Yokohama is the second largest city in Japan, located 30 minutes from Tokyo by train. Since Japan opened its doors to the world in 1853, Yokohama has been the key entry point for international trade and communications, bringing global perspectives, new ideas and multiculturalism.

IJCAI-PRICAI2020 will take place in the Pacifico Yokohama, officially known as Pacifico Convention Plaza Yokohama, which is one of the largest convention and exhibition centers in Japan. The center is located in the waterfront Minato Mirai. Minato Mirai is a major center for business, shopping, and tourism, attracting visitors and businesspeople throughout the Greater Tokyo Area. Minato Mirai also attracts numerous tourists, as does the nearby Yokohama Chinatown.

In addition, the Olympic games will take place in the Tokyo area on July 24th, right after the conference. If you have the opportunity, you can enjoy both IJCAI-PRICAI2020 and the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. Please enjoy the leading artificial intelligence gathering in the world, while visiting Japanese traditions, the Olympic Games, and more.

IJCAI-PRICAI2020 was originally planned to be held in Nagoya. However, due to the capacity of the venue, IJCAI-PRICAI2020 has been moved from Nagoya to Yokohama.
