Update to the AIAI Community from the organisers
On behalf of the 20th AIAI (Artificial Intelligence Applications and Innovations) 2024 Organizing and Scientific Committee, it is a real honor and pleasure to welcome all Artificial Intelligence scholars who are looking for a well-established and prestigious forum to communicate and disseminate the innovative advances of their research. It is a fact that AI is continuously digging its way in a vast number of diverse scientific domains. AIAI aims to provide a forum for delegates from both academia and industry, who wish to share pioneer ideas, to get to know each other better and to present their research. Moreover, it aims to offer a deep glimpse into the future and to examine important AI ethical aspects.
The Artificial Intelligence Applications and Innovations (AIAI) Conference has been held continuously since 2005, under the auspices of the IFIP WG12.5. Through the years, it has evolved to a well-respected and mature event, under the technical and scientific co-sponsorship of the AIAI community. This community comprises of an extended Group of leading scientists, not only from Europe but from all over the globe.
The h-index of the AIAI event is as high as 35. This proves the novelty and quality of the presented-published research and its important contribution to the promotion of scientific ideas, algorithms and methods, globally. The fact that the conference Springer Proceedings, have been downloaded more than 2,488,000 times so far, supports the robust impact of the event among the scholars of AI internationally.
During the last years we have been witnessing the developments in the Covid-19 virus in a global scale. The vaccination in EU and globally, has proceeded rapidly. As a matter of fact, so far there are no Covid-19 traveling restrictions both in Europe and in a global scale. This fact calls for the organization of a successful hybrid event. This will enable colleagues to attend the 20th AIAI 2024 on site, and the ones who cannot travel to attend and present remotely.
The venue of the 20th AIAI will be the premises of the Ionian University, in the beautiful, amazing, and breath-taking island of Corfu Greece. However, the ones that will not be able to travel, or for any reason they wish to present from home, will be given the opportunity to present remotely.
Most of all we wish to give the chance to all colleagues to disseminate their achievements in the AI domain to the AIAI community.
Nevertheless, the AIAI team has extended experience in the long-distance conference organizations. We should mention that the 2020 and 2021 AIAI conferences were broadcasted remotely, whereas the 2022 and 2023 events were organized in a hybrid mode, all of them with great success.
After 19 years of holding AIAI, strong links have been developed with the members of our scientific community. Regarding the 20th AIAI 2024 conference, it is going to be held in Corfu, one of the most iconic and gorgeous Greek islands with direct airplane connections to all over Europe. Moreover, the amazing atmosphere and the excellent academic environment of the Ionian University Greece, guarantees a perfect venue for all AI scientists.
The historical center of Corfu has a unique architecture, and it boasts several iconic museums (e.g., the Corfu Museum of Asian Art founded in 1928 in the palace of St. Michael and George, as the Museum of Chinese and Japanese Art). The island is famous for the Achillion Palace built in 1890 for the former Empress of Austria, Elizabeth (Sissy), it has several castles, archaeological sites, and more than 120 beaches.
We are certain that once more, we will be able to exchange ideas, to get to know each other better, and to interact by presenting our research achievements.
