The first three days were packed with workshops, ranging from explainable AI, alternative evaluation methods, to knowledge representation to domain-specific topics such as the medical domain or autonomous driving. The list of accepted workshops can be viewed here

On Monday the Austrian Society of AI (ASAI) organized a satellite event at IJCAI to connect the Austrian AI community, in which our group was also briefly presented.

More than 15 groups from all over Austria presented their work and research interests, this was followed by a poster and networking session.

On the same day, the official part of the conference started with the opening reception and a keynote by Gerhard Widmer at the Library Center of the Vienna University of Business and Economics. His keynote was on the topic of Music and AI and how the latter can contribute to this complex art form. One highlight was the live demonstration of human-machine piano co-performance at the venue.
