Started under the name NVKI, the BNVKI-AIABN (Belgian-Dutch Association for Artificial Intelligence) was founded in 1981 by 19 enthousiastic AI-researchers. After a startup period the association took the initiative in 1988 for a yearly conference series, originally named NAIC, but renamed to BNAIC, Belgian-Dutch Conference on Artificial Intelligence, since 1999, to underline the transnational bonds between the Netherlands and Belgium AI research. Since 2008, the association chose to name the conference BNAIC: Benelux Conference on Artificial Intelligence to reflect the incorporation of Luxembourg into the association.
The main goals of the BNAIC are two-fold:
- to bring together AI researchers in Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg, as a place to meet and to present research activities.
- to present high-quality research results, possibly already published in international conferences or journals.
Since 2004, the Proceedings of BNAIC are published under ISSN 1568-7805.
