The field of Artificial Intelligence stands at an inflection point, and
there could be many different directions in which the future of AI research
could unfold. Accordingly, there is a growing interest to ensure that
current and future AI research is used in a responsible manner for the
benefit of humanity (i.e., for social good). To achieve this goal, a wide
range of perspectives and contributions are needed, spanning the full
spectrum from fundamental research to sustained deployments in the

This workshop will explore how AI research can contribute to solving
challenging problems faced by current-day societies. For example, what role
can AI research play in promoting health, sustainable development and
infrastructure security? How can AI initiatives be used to achieve
consensus among a set of negotiating self-interested entities (e.g.,
finding resolutions to trade talks between countries)? To address such
questions, this workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners
across different strands of AI research and a wide range of important
real-world application domains. The objective is to share the current state
of research and practice, explore directions for future work, and create
opportunities for collaboration. In addition, the workshop will place a
special emphasis on highlighting AI approaches for tackling the COVID-19
pandemic. The organizers believe that AI research has an important role to
play in providing unique insights about the pandemic and developing
targeted responses; we encourage submissions from both AI researchers as
well as epidemiologists, health policy researchers, and other domain
experts who are interested in engaging with the IJCAI community.
