The International Journal of Distributed Artificial Intelligence (IJDAI) is a specialized journal that publishes high-quality research in all fields of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Distributed Artificial Intelligence is a subfield of AI concerned with coordinated, concurrent action, decision-making, and problem-solving. This journal not only emphasis on Distributed Artificial Intelligence (DAI), but it also concerned with other fields of artificial intelligence as real-world problems. In general, it is also covers novel ideas in emerging fields that unlimitedly include: Expert Systems, Multi-robot systems, Intelligent Mechatronic Applications, Natural Language Processing, Neural networks, Fuzzy Systems, Intelligent control systems, optimization techniques, intelligent robotic systems and path planning, learning systems, Heuristic and Metaheuristic methods. This journal turns in abroad scope of AI Fields theoretically and practically by encouraging scientists from different areas of science as well as researchers from various fields studying similar concepts. IJDAI publishes scientific research articles, reviews, technical reports, patent alerts, and case studies on the recent advances of new AI methodologies and techniques.

Mission and Scope

The mission of the International Journal of Distributed Artificial Intelligence (IJDAI) is to disseminate and discuss and publishes high quality research on wide range of Artificial Intelligence (AI) topics, theories, and applications. It features innovative findings from various fields of science, engineering, and technology. IJDAI is an interdisciplinary journal that brings together researchers from academia, industry, and the government to discuss conceptual issues and implementation of issues using the AI approach in solving real-life problems. The journal provides a platform for researchers, developers, students, and professors to exchange their novel innovative articles and ideas, discuss problems and produce solutions relating to artificial intelligence topics and its applications. As a medium of communication among those researchers and practitioners with interest, the journal explores the benefits of the concepts, simulations, constructions, and applications of AI theories beyond disciplinary boundaries.
