to artificial intelligence are fostered among academia, industry, and
government agencies.
The conference facilitates the cross-fertilization of these ideas and
promotes their 
transfer into practical tools, for developing intelligent systems and
pursuing artificial 
intelligence applications. The ICTAI encompasses all the technical aspects
of specifying,
developing and evaluating the theoretical underpinnings and applied
mechanisms of the AI 
based components of computer tools (i.e. algorithms, methodologies,
architectures or
