The AAAI-23 Demonstrations Program is intended to foster discussion and exchange of ideas among researchers and practitioners from academia and industry by presenting software and hardware systems and research prototypes of such systems, including their capabilities and workings. All accepted demos will be allocated time for live demonstrations. Accepted demonstrations will also have a short paper included in the proceedings.


Connection to Collaborative Bridge Theme

New communities often emerge when two or more disciplines come together, in order to explore new opportunities and perspectives; today both are plentiful. The purpose of this year’s collaborative bridge theme is to help cultivate this process. The demonstration program offers a showcase for what can be accomplished through collaborative bridges. A few examples of past demonstrations that leverage a diversity of AI methods include self-repairing space probes, surface explorers, autonomous cars and personal agents. In the spirit of the bridge theme, we welcome demonstrations that showcase the power derived from unifying methods across multiple AI disciplines.


Topics of Interest

The Demonstrations Program welcomes presentations of systems on all topics of mainstream AI (see the topic descriptions of the main AAAI and IAAI conference tracks) as well as systems whose power is derived by employing methods from multiple disciplines. Promising topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • AI platforms and applications for edge computing and Internet of Things
  • AI for games
  • AI systems for digital health
  • Cognitive systems
  • Decision making systems
  • Educational software and hardware tools for AI
  • Environment-aware agent behaviors
  • Human-AI interaction (including Human-robot interaction)
  • Intelligent collaborative systems
  • Intelligent graphical user interfaces
  • Intelligent tutoring systems
  • Natural language processing and speech recognition
  • Software and testing tools for developing AI technologies
  • Systems that integrate different AI technologies
  • Robots
  • Simulation environments for AI agents and multi-agent systems
  • Visual processing
  • Virtual reality systems

Proposed demonstrations must present new ideas, which are not already established in mainstream products or services. However, the demonstration need not run solely at the conference; it is acceptable to present systems that have been showcased elsewhere in the recent past. Captivating and innovative demonstrations will be given an advantage in the review process.

Submissions from everyone, including authors of paper submissions to AAAI, IAAI, and AAAI workshops and labs, are encouraged. Work submitted to other tracks can also be submitted to the Demonstrations Program in the format prescribed below, and will be evaluated independently according to the Demonstrations review process.


Author Registration

Authors must register at the AAAI-23 submission site before submitting their expression of interest. Authors should select “Demo Track.” The software will assign a password, which will enable the author to log on and submit their work. Authors are strongly encouraged to register as soon as possible, well in advance of the September 23 deadline.

  • Registration will close at 11:59 PM PDT on September 23, 2022.
  • Final demo paper submission will close at 11:59 PM PDT on September 23, 2022.


Submission and Review Process

Authors are required to submit two items: (1) a 2-page short paper describing their system, plus (1) page of references only, formatted in AAAI two-column style, and (2) a video (of duration up to 10 minutes) of the proposed demonstration. Slides are also permitted in lieu of video, but greater weight will be given to submissions accompanied by videos. The paper must present the technical details of the demonstration, discuss related work, and describe the significance of the demonstration. The paper must contain previously unpublished work. If accepted, authors will be required to transfer copyright of their paper to AAAI. For more information on the AAAI style, please download the AAAI Press author kit.

In accordance with past years of AAAI, submissions may be either single blind (i.e., reviewers are blind, authors have names on submission) or double blind (i.e., authors and reviewers are blind). Submissions in either format are appropriate for the demos track.

Final decisions will be accompanied by detailed reviews. Submissions will be judged for clarity, the significance of the proposed demonstration, and its relevance to the AI community, as well as ability to engage audiences. The Demonstrations Program Chairs reserve the right to reject submissions that are insufficiently relevant to this track.

At least one member of every demonstration must register for and attend AAAI-23. The conference registrant will be responsible for creating the exhibit according to information we provide about format.



To foster the presentation of exciting demonstrations, AAAI-23 will present an award for the Best Demonstration. The award will be granted on the basis of audience and reviewer evaluations.



Researchers and practitioners showing a demonstration will provide equipment and material for the successful operation of their demonstration during the appropriate time period. Special arrangements for the demonstration’s virtual presentation must be arranged through the Demonstrations Program Chairs no later than 60 days prior to the start of the conference, i.e. December 9, 2022. Because demonstration arrangements are being developed as events unfold, the Chairs will be in communication with the authors of accepted demonstrations about their requirements and individual setups.


For More Information

Inquiries concerning demonstration submissions and suggestions may be directed to the demonstration program cochairs at aaai23dpchairs@aaai.org. All other inquiries should be directed to AAAI at aaai23@aaai.org.
