||The purpose of the AAAI conference series is to promote research in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and scientific exchange among AI researchers, practitioners, scientists, students and engineers in AI and all affiliated disciplines. AAAI-15 is the Twenty-Ninth AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence. It will continue the traditions of previous AAAI conferences with multiple technical tracks, invited speakers, workshops, tutorials, student abstracts, senior member papers, poster sessions, a video competition, and exhibit programs, all selected according to the highest standards. AAAI-15, as the inaugural Winter AAAI conference, will also include special programs that celebrate the past and look into the future. A number of exciting innovations are planned, including additional programs for students and young researchers.
||Over the last few decades, reinforcement learning and decision making have been the focus of an incredible wealth of research spanning a wide variety of fields including psychology, artificial intelligence, machine learning, operations research, control theory, animal and human neuroscience, economics and ethology. Key to many developments in the field has been interdisciplinary sharing of ideas and findings. The goal of RLDM is to provide a platform for communication among all researchers interested in "learning and decision making over time to achieve a goal". The meeting is characterized by the multidisciplinarity of the presenters and attendees, with cross-disciplinary conversations and teaching and learning being central objectives along with the dissemination of novel theoretical and experimental results. The first meeting, RLDM2013, was a huge success, with over 300 attendees.
