CCIA 2022

We invite you to participate in the 24th International Conference of the Catalan Association for Artificial Intelligence (CCIA 2022) that will take place on 19-21st October 2022 in Sitges.

The main goal of this international conference is to foster discussion around the last advances in Artificial Intelligence.

We encourage you to contribute with finished works as well as preliminary works with promising original and innovative ideas.


The organizing committee is pleased to include social events that will allow to know the history of the city of Sitges through a guided tour and a gastronomic experience.

CCIA is the usual meeting point of the Catalan AI scientific community, this is why the conference official languages are Catalan, Spanish, French, Italian and English.

However, English must be used to be published in the conference proceedings.
