The 27th MAICS conference, held at the University of Dayton April 22-23, 2016, attracted scholars from six U.S. States (Ohio, Indiana, Washington, Arizona, North Carolina and West Virginia) and one foreign country (India). It is a forum for all areas of artificial intelligence and cognitive science. The main goal is to promote science and engineering solutions to the next generation — young researchers and students. Graduate students and junior faculty are especially encouraged.
The University of Dayton last hosted the conference in 2005. The conference had 33 program committee members who helped in various ways from refereeing to logistics.
Benjamin Kunz, a scholar in virtual reality and human factors and an assistant professor of psychology at the University of Dayton, provided the keynote address.
