The International Journal of Distributed Artificial Intelligence (IJDAI) focuses on all aspects of Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems, with an emphasis on Distributed Artificial Intelligence (DAI) as well as how to modify established learning techniques and create new learning paradigms to address the many challenges presented by complex real-world problems. Distributed Artificial Intelligence is a subfield of AI concerned with coordinated, concurrent action, decision making, and problem solving. The journal serves as an inclusive forum for discussion of theoretical and practical issues of DAI technologies and DAI systems while bringing together scientists from different areas of science as well as researchers from various fields studying similar concepts.

Mission and Scope

The mission of the International Journal of Distributed Artificial Intelligence (IJDAI) is to disseminate and discuss high quality research on Artificial Intelligence (AI) theory and application. 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. 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.
