Theme: AI for a better society

In the last years, research on Artificial Intelligence has made both
academia and industry to take a more active role in engaging with the
general public. The immense success of recent results appears almost
endless, but they are not without faults or concerns. Addressing the role
these technologies can have in human society is therefore important. The
14th Scandinavian Conference on AI (SCAI’24) invites researchers and
industry practitioners working on all facets of AI to submit their
research. Organised as a joint venture by the Swedish AI Society (SAIS) and
Norwegian AI Society (NAIS), the event invites researchers from all over
the world to participate in ongoing discussions.

Venue The event will take place June 10-11, 2024, in the picturesque, yet
modern Swedish city of Jönköping. It is a middle-sized city beautifully
tucked in between deep Swedish forests, mirror-clear lakes and flowing
hills. Join us over a “*kanelbulle* “(cinnamon roll) to discuss the latest
in AI research and network in the social program while overlooking the sun
set over the crystal-clear water of Vättern (Sweden’s second-largest lake).
Confirmed Keynote Speakers

In addition to the scientific and social program, SCAI has already three
confirmed keynote speakers all capturing different aspects of the
conference theme: AI for a better society. We are proud to have Virginia
Dignum, Professor of Computer Science at Umeå University, Timo Minssen,
Director at JUR Centre for Advanced Studies in Biomedical Innovation Law,
and Patrik Jägenstedt, Director Advanced Development, Robotics & AI Lab at
Husqvarna, joining SCAI as invited speakers! A later announcement will
provide more details on their talks.

Contributions are welcome from all areas of Artificial Intelligence, and
topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

– AI applications
– AI ethics and regulations
– Knowledge representation
– Hybrid and neurosymbolic AI
– Machine learning methods and applications
– Case studies of AI in the public sector and industry
– Complex systems and swarm intelligence
– Cognitive robotics and intelligent agents
– Human-computer interaction with an AI-focus
– Planning and Scheduling

For the scientific program of the conference, we invite four types (with
corresponding submission tracks) of contributions to SCAI 2024, from all
areas of AI research:

– 6-10 pages full paper describing original contributions (not under
review at another venue). General descriptions of current and ongoing
projects are also acceptable. This category will be published in SCAI 2024
proceedings unless the authors opt-out. Please note that full papers in the
proceedings are approved as a scientific publication channel at level 1 in
Norway.
– 2 pages extended abstracts of previously published papers in e.g., AI
journals and AI conferences, within the last 12 months. The two pages
should include everything, e.g., references, figures, etc. These will not
be included in the proceedings, only presented at the conference.
– 2 pages extended abstract describing AI industrial application,
demonstrating use cases that leverage machine learning and AI techniques in
a real-world setting. The two pages should include everything, including
references, figures, etc. The first author should be from industry. These
will not be included in the proceedings, only presented at the conference.
– 2 pages extended abstract describing ongoing Ph.D. projects (the first
author must be a Ph.D. student). Problem statement and research question/s
must be clearly introduced and motivated. The two pages should include
everything, e.g., references, figures, etc. These will not be included in
