ASAI, the Argentine Symposium on Artificial Intelligence, is an annual event intended to be the main forum of the Artificial Intelligence (AI) community in Argentina. 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. Previous ASAI editions stimulated presentations on both applications of AI and new tools and foundations currently under development.

The Ninth Argentine Symposium on Artificial Intelligence (ASAI 2007) will be held during the last week of August 2007, in Mar del Plata, Argentina. ASAI 2007 will be part of the 36th JAIIO, the 36th Argentine Meetings on Informatics and Operations Research, organized by SADIO, the Argentine Society for Informatics and Operations Research.
