[DMANET] 2nd call for the Special Track Game AI at IEA/AIE 2017 (abstract Dec. 08, paper Dec. 15)

Special Track Game AI at IEA/AIE 2017, June 27-30, 2017 Arras (near
Paris, France)


Among numerous possibles applications of Artificial Intelligence, games
are convenient and efficient testbeds to develop innovating techniques
and methods. By games, we mean every game playable through a computer:
video games, board games, serious games, etc.

Behind the fun side, games propose a simplified environment regarding to
the real world, while remaining rich enough to also propose
scientifically pertinent problems: understanding of a dynamic
environment, knowledge extraction, decision-making upon incomplete
information, planning, cooperation, learning or mimicking credible
behaviors, optimization, path-finding, etc.

Many of these problems are common to others research fields such as
robotics, but games offer a greater flexibility: thanks to their
dematerialized nature, these environments are inexpensive,
transportable, need no physical maintenance and propose a highly
controllable time flow (accelerated, paused, etc).


Topics of interest for this special track on Game AI include, but are
not limited to:

* Planning;
* Decision-making in a dynamic and/or incomplete information environment;
* Data-mining;
* CSP/SAT, combinatorial optimization;
* Cooperative or competitive multi-agent systems;
* Game rules and/or behaviors learning;
* Spacial and temporal reasoning;
* Credible behaviors (emotion, personality), player immersion;
* Storytelling generation;
* User experience;
* Path-finding;
* Game play programming;
* Engine programming;
* Serious games/applications, Game with A Purpose (GWAP).
