Meeting Format

This year AAAC 2021 is co-located with COCOON 2021. The meeting consists of invited talks, tutorials, and parallel contributed talks. The invited talks will be scheduled in the mornings of October 23 (Saturday) and 24 (Sunday). The tutorials will be scheduled in the afternoon of October 22 (Friday). There will be a welcome reception in the evening of October 22 (Friday) and a conference dinner banquet in the evening of October 23 (Saturday).

Important Announcement

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and uncertainty surrounding travel restrictions, we have decided to postpone the conference from the usual dates in May to allow for the possibility of hosting a hybrid conference. Basically, the talks will be given online, but the invited talks and the tutorials may be presented on-site.

The program will be like those in the past AAACs. However, the presentation will be given online, or will be uploaded in advance (on demand). Moreover, we plan to have (virtual) discussion time for each talk according to the program. We are also planning to prepare a “physical” conference site: Shangri-La’s Far Eastern Plaza Hotel, Tainan, Taiwan where limited seats are available. Details will be provided to participants soon.
