ASAI is an annual event intended to be the main forum of the Artificial Intelligence (AI) community in Argentina, organized by the Argentinean Association of Artificial Intelligence (AAIA). The symposium aims at providing a forum for researchers and AI community members to discuss and exchange ideas and experiences on diverse topics of AI. Submissions are invited on both applications of AI and new tools and foundations.

The XX Argentine Symposium on Artificial Intelligence (ASAI 2019) will be held during the week 16th - 20th September 2019, in Salta, Argentina, and will be hosted by the Universidad Nacional de Salta (UNSa). ASAI 2019 will be part of the 48th Argentine Conference on Informatics, organized by SADIO.

JAIIO is organized as a series of thematic symposia including topics such as software engineering, artificial intelligence, technology, agroinformatics, high performance computing, industrial informatics, free software, law, health, information society, bioinformatics and virtual reality, among others.

In the context of ASAI, teachers, researchers, professionals and companies are invited to contribute their research/development works in any of the available formats. Research works, new software products, case studies, transference activity reports or practical activities reports related to the symposium topics are welcome.

Submission Types and Requested Formats

- Full Papers: This is the standard ASAI paper submission. Original contributions will be selected via a rigorous double-blind peer-review process (authors’ names or filiations should not be provided). These works must be not presented or under revision anywhere else. All accepted papers must be presented at the Conference and will be published in the Proceedings.  The submission of manuscripts must follow the format available here. The maximum length for a full paper is 14 pages. Best papers will be invited for publication in the Electronic Journal of SADIO.

- Short papers: up to 4 pages, describing ongoing research work. These papers will undergo a review process and those that are accepted will be presented orally during the conference and published in the JAIIO proceedings

- Communications: This is a non-standard type of ASAI contribution aimed at raising discussion on recent work. In contrast to the Proceedings track, Communications are not required to be original work. They are talks on high quality articles authored by the presenter and published in the recent past. Communications will be selected by the Program Committee based on a one-page abstract and a list of relevant papers. All accepted abstracts will be published in the Proceedings.

- Research group updates: It is aimed at strengthening the links of the local AI community by discussing about the prospects of the discipline and potentially generating partnerships for future projects. Oral presentations will be given by leaders of AI Research Groups from Argentina and the region. The talks should give a short overview of current research projects, recent scientific production, novel topics and open interests, and should be presented with a view on building bridges between research groups. Proposals will be evaluated by the Program Committee based on a one-page abstract and a list of the group recent papers in AI.

The first three submission types should be made through the SADIO's conference management system. Submissions for research group updates should be made by e-mail to

Each accepted contribution must be presented in the symposium, and the presenter must be registered in the conference before the deadline for camera ready submissions in order to include the work in the Symposium.
