Registration

The workshop is open to all the AI community, but attendance is limited to active participants only. To guarantee a high level of interactivity, the number or participants is limited to 40. People who are interested in participating without presenting a paper should send a request esucar@itesm.mx, briefly motivating their interest in the workshop.

People accepted to attend should then register to the workshop and the main IJCAI conference through the IJCAI web site. Please note that the deadline for preregistration is June 30. Onsite rates will apply after June 30.
