The 25th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Education (AIED) will take place between 8-12 July, 2024 in Recife, Brazil. Its theme is: AI in Education for a World in Transition.
The AIED Doctoral Consortium is an interactive event to support doctoral students working in domains relevant to the interdisciplinary research areas of AIED. In the Doctoral Consortium, the students will share and discuss their research ideas and plans with more experienced colleagues, i.e., mentors, who will provide feedback on various aspects of the student's work including the theoretical framing and the methodological approaches. Doctoral Consortium participants will also have the opportunity to informally introduce themselves to the larger AIED community.
We invite all doctoral students for submissions. However, the candidates selected will be those who are at a stage in their research for which feedback from the AIED community will be of most value. That is, the students who have a clear topic and research approach, and have made some progress, but who are not so far along in their work that they can no longer benefit from feedback received during the conference. It is possible to participate in the Doctoral Consortium if the candidate is in a doctoral program, and also if the individual has graduated within the year. Paper submissions must be primarily authored by the students with advisors and collaborators listed as co-authors. The topics of interest are related to the main conference topics.
Though the main objective of the Doctoral Consortium is to provide an opportunity for feedback on students’ current research, we also seek to continue to build interdisciplinary research ideas, theoretical frameworks, and methodological approaches because these intersections are critical to AIED as an area of scholarship. We recognize that a supportive and trans-disciplinary research community can only be possible with opportunities for healthy dialogic exchange between members of the AIED community. Therefore, it is of utmost importance that the Doctoral Consortium fosters such collaborative interactions among the participants of the conference in order to enhance the experience of all participants and build capacity in the field.
