Call for Papers (Students)


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.

All students with research interests relevant to the conference are welcome to apply, whether or not they have submitted a paper to the main track of AIES. For those students who have submitted, these papers can overlap substantially with research-in-progress presentations but must not be identical.

Acceptance into the student program will include both free conference registration and a travel stipend to cover (or at least significantly offset) the costs of traveling and accommodation, and/or direct provision of housing in Keble College. The precise award amount will vary according to the travel costs of each participant, as well as their access to support funding at their home institutions.

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

  • AI, surveillance, and privacy
  • AI and education
  • AI and political discourse
  • AI and social norms
  • Building ethical AI systems
  • Value alignment
  • Ethics and autonomous decision making
  • Trust and explanations in AI systems
  • Fairness and Transparency in AI systems
  • Responsible design and development of AI systems
  • Human-level AI
  • Controlling AI
  • Impact of AI on workforce
  • AI and law
  • AI and accountability

Please see the submissions page  for complete details on putting together an application.
