Call for papers (Students)



The second annual conference on AI, Ethics and Society, which will take place in Honolulu, HI on January 27-28, 2019, is soliciting applications for the Student Track.

The student track has two purposes: to provide graduate students with financial support to attend the conference, and to create some structured engagement between student participants and senior scholars at AIES. In addition to attending the conference, accepted students will participate in a poster session explaining their own research in progress, and will have the opportunity to meet with senior scholars for mentoring purposes.

Participants in the student track are welcome, though not required, to submit papers to AIES. These papers can overlap substantially with research-in-progress presentations but must not be identical. The CFP for AIES 2019 can be found here.

Acceptance into the student program will include both free conference registration and a travel stipend.

Students working on a variety of topics are encouraged to apply, including:

  • Building ethical AI systems
  • Value alignment
  • Ethics and autonomous decision making
  • Trust and explanations in AI systems
  • Fairness and Transparency in AI systems
  • Ethical design and development of AI systems
  • AI for social good
  • Human-level AI
  • Controlling AI
  • Impact of AI on workforce
  • Societal impact of AI
  • AI and law
  • AI and political discourse
  • AI and accountability
