The International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (or IJCAI) is a gathering of Artificial Intelligence (AI) researchers and practitioners. It is organized by the IJCAI, Inc., and has been held biennially in odd-numbered years since 1969. It is sponsored jointly by the International Joint Conferences on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI) Organization, and the national AI societie(s) of the host nation(s). IJCAI is a highly selective conference. For instance, only 17% of the papers submitted to the conference were accepted in 2011, and in previous years never more than 26%.[1] This makes it a more selective publication than many AI journals.


Three research awards are given at each IJCAI conference.

  • The Donald E. Walker Distinguished Service Award is given to honor senior scientists in AI for contributions and service to the field during their careers.
  • The IJCAI Award for Research Excellence is given to scientists who have carried out a program of research of consistently high quality throughout an entire career yielding several substantial results.

Additionally, IJCAI presents one or more Best Paper Awards [2] at the conference to recognize the highest quality papers.
