RCAI is the biennial conference organized by Federal Research Center “Computer Science and Control” of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Russian Association for Artificial Intelligence and National Research University Higher School of Economics and held since 1988. RCAI covers a whole range of AI sub-disciplines: Machine Learning, Reasoning, Planning, Natural Language Processing etc. Before 2018 despite the international status of the conference proceedings were published in Russian and were indexed in the Russian Science Citation Index. 2018 is going to be the first year when selected high-quality papers of RCAI will be published in English. Recent conference history includes RCAI 2016 in Smolensk, Russia, RCAI 2014 in Kazan, Russia and goes back to RCAI 1988 held in Pereslavl-Zalessky.
