Call for Papers


Call for Doctoral Consortium Papers


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.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The AIED Society values diversity, equity, and inclusion (and related principles under this broad umbrella) as essential and fundamental values for the AIED community to uphold. Thus, in AIED 2024, we incentivize authors to carefully consider diversity, equity, and inclusion when reporting on your work. 

When preparing your paper, please consider the following: 

Please consider the following criteria when reporting samples: 

Format and Content

Accepted candidates will participate in 1-on-1 talks with senior researchers and other students during the conference in which they will present their work and receive feedback on their research. 

In addition, prior to the conference, each student with an accepted paper will be assigned a mentor with specialized background on the student’s research topic or methodological approach so that more detailed and specific feedback can be provided to each student. As part of the application, students will list names of potential mentors in the AIED community they want to meet, and we will do our best to connect each student with those individuals. 

The submission has two equally important parts: 

The paper should follow the format template linked below and describe, in a logical and coherent manner, the aims and objectives of the proposed research by clearly illustrating the following: 

The presentation letter should include all of the following information: 

Submission Instructions

All submissions must be in Springer format and follow Springer policies on publication (including policies on the use of AI in the authoring process):

Papers that do not use the required format may be rejected without review. Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. 


Submissions will be handled via EasyChair:

Registration and Participation

Each accepted paper within the Doctoral Consortium track must be accompanied by a unique author registration (i.e., one registration per paper), completed by the early registration date cut-off. Please note that presenters of papers accepted to the Doctoral Consortium track are expected to be on-site to give their presentations and interact with the audience, to have the paper included in the proceedings. An online streaming option will be set-up for remote observers. Scholarships are available for researchers who lack funding to present at the conference, see website for more information.
