Call for Papers (Students)


The AIES student track is a competitive program that provides PhD students with targeted programming, mentorship, and  financial support to attend AIES. In addition to attending the conference, accepted students present their research in a lightning talk and poster session, participate in breakout groups with peers, and receive mentoring from senior scholars.

All PhD students with research interests relevant to the conference are welcome to apply, whether or not they have already submitted a paper to the main track of AIES. (See the main track CFP for the full list of research topics.) Students with papers already accepted by the main track must make a separate application if they wish to be considered for the student program.

Acceptance into the student program will include both free conference registration and a travel stipend to significantly offset travel and accommodation costs. The precise award amount will vary according to financial need.

We welcome applications from a wide array of disciplinary and personal backgrounds. AIES especially encourages students from historically underrepresented and/or minoritized groups to apply.

Applications will be assessed against several factors, including the relevance and quality of the work submitted, evidence of research progress, contribution to diversity, and capacity to benefit from the experience.

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

Submission deadline: May 12, 2023 – 11:59pm AoE
