This year's technical program includes a new Industry Track strictly for presentations in addition to the more traditional Research Track.

Industry professionals who do not want to submit an academic paper are invited to propose an Industry Track presentation by submitting short abstract.

AIIDE is hosted by the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI), and is the premier conference on artificial intelligence in computer games and entertainment. It brings together technical leaders of game development and research to examine how artificial intelligence can improve games and entertainment, exchange information about new developments in the field, and share experiences in deploying AI in commercial products. The conference will feature invited talks from prominent industry professionals and academics, a full technical program, and a lively poster/demonstration session.

The speaker list and conference program will be announced in the summer of 2008. More information about AIIDE '08 can be found at:
