We invite paper submission on the following (and related) topics:

  • New theory and fundamentals of AI-aided design and manufacturing,
  • Novel AI-based techniques to improve modeling of engineering systems,
  • Integration of AI-based approaches with engineering prototyping and manufacturing,
  • Novel methods to learn from scarce/sparse, or heterogenous, or multimodal data,
  • Novel ML methods in the computational material and physical sciences,
  • Novel ML-accelerated optimization for conceptual/detailed system design,
  • Novel AI-enabled generative models for system design and manufacturing,
  • ML-guided rare event modeling and system uncertainty quantification,
  • Development of software, libraries, or benchmark datasets, and
  • Identification of key challenges and opportunities for future research.


The workshop will be a half-day meeting comprising several invited talks from distinguished researchers in the field, spotlight lightning talks and a poster session where contributing paper presenters can discuss their work, and a concluding panel discussion focusing on future directions. Attendance is open to all registered participants.


Submitted technical papers can be up to 4 pages long (excluding references and appendices). Position papers are welcome. All papers must be submitted in PDF format using the AAAI-22 author kit. Papers will be peer-reviewed and selected for spotlight and/or poster presentation.

Submissions are due by: November 12, 2021 November 19, 2021
