AIxIA Working Groups, scientific and industrial research groups, and individual researchers interested in a subarea of Artificial Intelligence or in a related topic of growing importance are invited to submit proposals of workshops associated with AIxIA 2021. We particularly welcome proposals aimed at bringing together researchers from a wide range of disciplines, to exchange ideas and to allow cross-fertilization.
