Artificial Intelligence research has produced impressive results in the last years. Both academia and industry are actively working to advance in the long goal of creating sophisticated machines that can perform tasks usually better executed by humans. The methods to produce intelligent systems have been emerged from several sub areas, including search methods, intelligent agents, machine learning, knowledge representation, reasoning, among others. Successful applications areas include computer vision, social media, medicine, finances, linguistics, robotics, etc. We hope that this edition of the track Advances in AI can be a forum where researchers from academia and industry may exchange experience, new techniques, and theoretical advances to contribute in the realization of Artificial Intelligence.

The Track welcomes submissions related to the practical, applied, and theoretical issues related to developing and deploying Artificial Intelligent Systems. Authors are solicited to submit significant, original, complete, and unpublished papers in the following, but not limited to, topics:


• Machine Learning
