Student Abstract and Poster Program: Call for Proposals
AAAI-24 invites submissions to the student abstract and poster program. The goal of this program is to provide a forum in which students can present and discuss their work during its early stages, meet some of their peers who have related interests, and introduce themselves to more senior members of the field. The program is open to all students at the Undergraduate, Masters, and Doctoral levels. Non-student advisors and collaborators should be acknowledged appropriately, as coauthors or otherwise. However, students are requested to honor the spirit of the program by submitting only work for which they are primary investigators.
New communities often emerge when two or more disciplines come together, in order to explore new opportunities and perspectives; today both are plentiful. The purpose of this year’s collaborative bridge theme is to help cultivate this process. As a student, your coursework exposes you deeply to multiple cutting-edge methodologies and disciplines. Consequently, your research as a student offers an ideal opportunity to combine two or more of these methods towards a common purpose. These cross-disciplinary explorations are often rewarded with significant opportunities for collaboration, innovation, and impact and can provide a catalyst for career-long success. In the spirit of this year’s bridge theme, if your research unifies methodologies from multiple AI disciplines, we suggest that you include in your abstract and poster a discussion of how this bridge enables your research objectives.
Electronic submission in PDF format is required. Students should submit an abstract describing their research no later than September 15, 2023. Abstracts must be no longer than 2 pages including references, and formatted in AAAI two-column, camera-ready style. Papers exceeding the specified length and formatting requirements are subject to rejection without review. The abstract must include the following: title; the primary author’s full name, affiliation, postal address, phone number, URL (if available), and e-mail address; all co-authors’ full names and affiliations; technical description; and any figures, tables, or diagrams. Students should submit a supplemental file containing complementary material about their research. This file must be in pdf or zip format and may not exceed 20MB in size. The supplemental file is critical to reviewers, because of the brevity of the submissions.
- Notification of acceptance or rejection of submitted abstracts will be mailed to the author by October 30, 2023
- Camera-ready copy of accepted abstracts will be due by November 17, 2023.
AAAI-24 enforces a strict submission limit. Each individual student abstract author is limited to no more than one (1) submission as a primary student author to the AAAI-24 Student Abstract and Poster Program, and authors may not be added to papers following the submission deadline.
Submissions to AAAI-24 or Other Conferences
Students are free to submit abstracts for work reported in a regular paper submitted to the AAAI-24 or another conference, but not for work that has already been published. Abstracts are reviewed by a separate program committee and will be accepted or rejected for the student session regardless of the outcomes of related full-paper submissions. It is recommended that students check with other non-AAAI conferences to be sure that they comply with their regulations regarding dual submissions. Note that all abstracts accepted for publication must be original and must not violate the AAAI Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement.
Accepted abstracts will be allocated two (2) pages in the conference proceedings. Students will be required to transfer copyright of the abstract to AAAI. A copy of the AAAI copyright form is available in the author kit. At the time of camera-ready copy submission, authors will be required to include a “Student Abstract” designation in the title of their paper (instructions will be sent regarding format).
Accepted abstracts will be allocated presentation time at the conference. Student authors of accepted abstracts must agree to prepare a poster representing the work described in their abstracts and to be available to discuss their work with visitors during their allocated time at the conference.
Three-Minute Presentation Contest
The authors of some accepted abstracts will be selected to present their abstracts and their significance in a 3-minute presentation contest, to be held in a special session of the Student Abstract and Poster Program. The contest will follow the usual 3-minute thesis competition format: presentations are limited to three minutes and can be supported only by one single static slide (no slide transitions, animations, video, or sound files). Specific details will be given to participants. A special prize committee will select the best presentation.
