The 13th AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Interactive Digital Entertainment (AIIDE'17) will be held at the Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort in Snowbird, Utah on October 5-9, 2017. AIIDE'17 is the thirteenth annual conference and the sixteenth overall event sponsored by AAAI on the topic of AI and Interactive Entertainment.

AIIDE is the definitive point of interaction between entertainment software developers interested in AI and academic and industrial AI researchers. Sponsored by the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI), the conference is targeted at both the research and commercial communities, promoting AI research and practice in the context of interactive digital entertainment systems with an emphasis on commercial computer and video games.

AIIDE-17 will include invited speakers, research and practitioner presentations, playable experiences, project demonstrations, interactive poster sessions, product exhibits, workshops, tutorials, and a doctoral consortium. We invite researchers and developers to share insights and cutting-edge results from a wide range of AI-related problems and encourage the presentation of a) results from core AI research areas applicable to interactive digital entertainment and b) AI approaches developed and fielded in commercial systems.

This year's conference features a special topic of "Beyond Games." In addition to general topics of interest in game AI, the conference program will feature speakers, panels, and paper sessions that focus on a broad range of complementary areas of interactive digital entertainment.
