The International Conference of the Catalan Association for Artificial Intelligence (CCIA) is an event which serves as a meeting point, not only for researchers in Artificial Intelligence based in the area of the Catalan speaking territories (southern France, Catalonia, Valencia, the Balearic Islands and Alghero in Italy), but also for researchers around the world.
This book constitutes the proceedings of the 24th edition of the CCIA, held in Sitges, in October 2022. Previous editions of the CCIA were held in Tarragona (1998), Girona (1999), Vilanova i la Geltrú (2000), Barcelona (2001, 2004, 2014, 2016), Castelló de la Plana (2002), Mallorca (2003), Alghero (Sardinia) (2005), Perpignan‘ (France) (2006), Andorra (2007), Sant Martí d’Empúries (2008), Cardona (2009), L’Espluga de Francolí (2010), Lleida (2011), Alacant (2012), Vic (2013), València (2015), Deltebre (2017), Roses (2018), Colònia de Sant Jordi (2019) and Lleida (2021). CCIA was cancelled in 2020 due to the restrictions caused by the COVID-19 outbreak.
The 26 long papers and the 23 short papers presented in this volume were carefully reviewed and selected from 59 submissions. This reviewing process was made possible thanks to the 62 artificial intelligence experts who make up the programme committee. We especially thank them for their efforts in this task, and would also like to express our appreciation for the work of the authors of the 59 submissions.
The accepted papers deal with all aspects of artificial intelligence, including combinatorial problem solving and logics for artificial intelligence, sentiment analysis and text analysis, data science, recommender systems and decision support systems, machine learning, computer vision, and explainability and argumentation. This book of proceedings also includes the abstract of the invited talk, given by Prof. Fosca Giannotti.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the Catalan Association for Artificial Intelligence (ACIA), the Institut d’Investigació en Inteligència Artificial (IIIA-CSIC), the Universitat de València (UV) and the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) for their support.
