Marco Island, Florida, USA

Hilton Marco Island

FLAIRS onsite registration  is in Ballroom  A Foyer 


FLAIRS-30 continues a tradition of presenting and discussing state of the art artificial intelligence and related research in a sociable atmosphere within a beautiful setting. Events will include invited speakers, special tracks, discussion panels, and presentations of papers, posters, and awards. Traditionally, FLAIRS features not only some of the world’s leading researchers but also quality submissions from students.

FLAIRS takes the conference to the Hilton Marco Island Beach Resort and Spa, a stunning Gulf of Mexico beachfront resort, offering a spa, heated outdoor pool, whirlpool, and three on-site dining options including Caribbean-inspired restaurant, and several restaurants and shops within walking distance. Every room has a balcony and at least a partial gulf view.  Located next door to the Florida Everglades National Park and some of Southwest Florida's best shopping, dining, and recreational activities, Marco Island is the largest and only developed land in Florida's Ten Thousand Islands. This Gulf Coast retreat offers luxury resorts, beautiful beaches and unspoiled parks. The tropical climate is a considerable attraction to the area, with the water being the next major attraction. Collier Seminole State Park, just a few miles from the island, has primitive camping, canoeing, fishing, boating, picnic grounds, and a mile-long nature walk. Narrated boat tours of the park run on a daily basis. Briggs Nature Center features a half-mile boardwalk where visitors can observe wildlife in its natural habitat.
