Editorial Charter

ACM Transactions on Intelligent Systems and Technology (ACM TIST) is a scholarly journal that publishes the highest quality papers on intelligent systems, applicable algorithms and technology with a multi-disciplinary perspective. An intelligent system is one that uses artificial intelligence (AI) techniques to offer important services (e.g., as a component of a larger system) to allow integrated systems to perceive, reason, learn, and act intelligently in the real world.

The journal welcomes articles that report on the integration of artificial intelligence technology with various subareas of computer science as well as with other branches of sciences and engineering. The journal welcomes innovative, high-impact articles on emerging or deployed intelligent systems and technology with solid evaluation or evidence of success on a variety of topics. An emerging intelligent system is one that is evaluated on benchmark data and has the potential to become deployed in the future, whereas a deployed system should demonstrate useful case studies and application experiences with sufficient novelty and principled methodology in contribution to the state of the art.


Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • intelligent agent systems

  • intelligent bioinformatics and biomedical systems

  • intelligent information and multimedia systems

  • intelligent robotic systems

  • intelligent tutoring and educational systems

  • knowledge engineering, modeling and capture systems

  • knowledge based software engineering

  • large-scale machine learning systems and technology

  • machine learning applications

  • online commerce, games, information search and advertising systems

  • planning and scheduling systems

  • social intelligence systems

  • speech and language understanding and processing systems

  • user behavior modeling and learning, intelligent user interfaces

The journal also welcomes articles on multidisciplinary systems such as brain sciences, social intelligence, and integration of intelligent systems with business, science and engineering applications.  The journal is committed to the timely dissemination of research results in the area of intelligent systems and technology.
