ICPRAM 2021 (10th International Conference on Pattern Recognition Applications and Methods) received 97 paper submissions from 30 countries. To evaluate each submission, a double‐blind paper review was performed by the Program Committee. After a stringent selection process, 21 papers were published and presented as full papers, i.e. completed work (12 pages/25’ oral presentation), 53 papers were accepted as short papers (28 as oral presentation and 25 as poster presentation).

The Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence’s 2021 International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Interactive Digital Entertainment was held October 11-15, 2021. There were three workshops in the program: Experimental AI in Games, Programming Languages in Entertainment, and Strategy Games. This report contains summaries of some, but not all symposia.
The 18th International Conference for Artificial Intelligence and Law (ICAIL 2021) was organized at the University of São Paulo School of Law, Brazil. For the first time, the ICAIL conference was organized entirely online, due to the overall Covid-19 pandemic situation. Despite unusual circumstances, the ICAIL 2021 was a success, attracting almost 1400 registered participants and offering a rich, diverse program.

Research interest in Conversational AI has experienced a massive growth over the last few years and several recent advancements have enabled systems to produce rich and varied turns in conversations similar to humans. However, this apparent creativity is also creating a real challenge in the objective evaluation of such systems as authors are becoming reliant on crowd worker opinions as the primary measurement of success and, so far, few papers are reporting all that is necessary for others to compare against in their own crowd experiments. This challenge is not unique to ConvAI, but demonstrates as AI systems mature in more “human” tasks that involve creativity and variation, evaluation strategies need to mature with them.

For our fourth AMA, we have Dr. David Leake, Professor of Computer Science in the Luddy School of Informatics, Computing and Engineering at Indiana University, where he served as Executive Associate Dean from 2012-2021. He received his PhD from Yale University in 1990. His research is in artificial intelligence and cognitive science, including contributions in case-based reasoning, explanation, intelligent information systems, intelligent user interfaces, and introspective learning. He has authored/edited over 200 publications with over 8,500 Google Scholar citations. He played a key role in developing the field of case-based reasoning and is a five-time winner of best paper awards at the International Conference on Case-Based Reasoning (ICCBR). He is Editor in Chief Emeritus of AI Magazine, the official magazine of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI), after 17 years as Editor in Chief. In 2014 he received the AAAI Distinguished Service Award. He is a Senior Member of AAAI.
