In anticipation of the Russian Conference on Artificial Intelligence (RCAI-2021)


The Nineteenth Russian Conference on Artificial Intelligence (RCAI-2021) will take place on 11—16 October in Taganrog, Rostov Oblast of Russia. Leading world scientists will present their previously unpublished works. Once again, the conference is conducted by the Russian Association for Artificial Intelligence along with the Federal Research Center "Computer Science and Control", the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and the Southern Federal University where it will take place. The overview and preliminary programme (PDF, Russian only) are already available at the official website. Update from 30 September: full programme is available now.

A whole lot of research fellows from our Artificial Intelligence Research Institute take part in it, both as organizers and speakers. Boris Kobrinsky will act as a chairman of the National Program Committee while also conducting a plenary session on the artificial intelligence in medicine and presenting a work on integration of medical diagnostic system built around knowledge bases along with Nikolai Blagosklonov.


Social networks will get a lot of attention. Maxim Stankevich, for example, is planning to dedicate two presentations to them, including the work on TITANIS — a text mining instrument. At the same time, Dmitry Devyatkin, Natalia Chudova and Anfisa Chuganskaya will talk about methods of identifying reactions to frustration in messages left by users.

The 71 Dynamic Intelligent Systems and Cognitive Research department is represented by Alexei Skrynnik, Andrey Bokovoy and Aleksandr Panov who prepared a research on Q-mixing network for multi-agent pathfinding in partially observable grid environments, while Kirill Muravyov, Andrey Bokovoy and Konstantin Yakovlev came up with a study on enhancing unknown location research algorithms for navigation.

The final version of the programme will be revealed later. Best Russian-language works are to be published in the collection of proceedings and awarded the Russian Science Citation Index. English-language works could be considered for publishing in Springer and CEUR Workshops Proceedings indexed in Scopus. Meanwhile you might want to engage yourself in watching last year's video conferences at YouTube.
