ASIS&T SIG AI Student Research Symposium (Co-hosted with ASIS&T Asia Pacific Chapter)

June 23/24, 2022 | Online | Registration form

SIG AI provides a forum for discussion about research, development, and use of artificial intelligence in information science and technology. It is concerned with all aspects of AI design and implementation. The SIG AI student research symposium seeks to provide a platform for students from information science and related fields who are interested in AI-related research to present their ideas, frameworks, and preliminary results from AI-related studies. We encourage students who are interested in participating in our symposium to submit a 300-400 words abstract of their research, including problem statement, originality, method, initial finding, and implications.

Each author can submit an abstract on either a 1) regular research presentation (theoretical or empirical) introducing a new piece of their recent research, OR 2) technical showcase that presents a new system, tool or dataset they developed as a supporting platform or product of a research. The submission deadline is June 17th, 2022 11:59pm (AOE). Please use our research symposium registration form to register and submit your abstract. Please note that you can register for the event and participate without submitting an abstract.

Topics of interest to this symposium include, but not limited to:

  • AI applications in information environments

  • AI ethics, equality, and fairness
