Artificial Intelligence International Conference – A2IC 2020
The A2IC conference aims to establish an international forum of reference for the latest advances in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI). This second edition aims at joining both academy and industry by covering not only basic and applied research, but also philosophical and ethical issues regarding the future of humanity in an AI world.
The conference will include Special Sessions to discuss further and explore in more detail some hot topics. A2IC 2020 will gather an excellent group of Plenary speakers from different topics and will be held online from November 30th to December 2nd, 2020.
After careful consideration, the Chairman and the Organizing Committee have decided to transform A2IC 2020 into an online conference. Indeed, travel restrictions and pandemic progress are creating too much uncertainty regarding the organization of in-person conferences. In addition, a survey has shown that 86,4% of the participants prefer the alternative of the online meeting instead of a cancellation. This will not replace the in-person conference but it allows the community to maintain a link. Moreover, this conference will be eco-friendly and cheaper since everyone can participate from home.
The committee will take this opportunity to invite a wider range of high-profile speakers and build a very attractive program. In addition, we would like this edition to be interactive with AV discussions over the talks and full of opportunities to network. Providing you with a smooth meeting technically speaking is also one of our main priorities.
Please note that the committee has experience with organizing interactive online conferences. We have designed an intuitive dashboard representing the conference lobby and where you can access to each room with a single click. A welcome desk will be available every day with a staff member that you can talk with and each participant can ask for a technical test prior to the event by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will have access to the participant’s list before the conference via a networking app and several activities will be available during the breaks to facilitate the networking between participants, there will be also rooms dedicated to the speakers in order to extend the Q&A and others dedicated to open positions opportunities to encourage the creation of new collaborations. All live speakers will be contacted by the committee at least one week before the conference in order to run a quick technical test.

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE PREVIOUS EDITION
First popularized at a conference at Dartmouth College in the United States in 1956, “artificial intelligence” brought together researchers on a broad range of topics, from language simulation to learning machines.
In recent years, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been ongoing at an exponential pace. From general Artificial Intelligence to expert systems, data mining, robotics, Neural Networks, and fuzzy systems, AI has indeed become a trending topic among scholars, students, faculties, and professionals.
This interest everyone has in Artificial Intelligence lies in the strong tendency that it has to disrupt every aspect of life. The opportunities of Artificial Intelligence are endless. Embracing AI promises considerable benefits for businesses and economies through its contributions to productivity growth and innovation.
