Call for Birds-of-a-Feather (BoF) Sessions

The Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) chairs are welcoming applications for Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions at ECAI- 2024. Are you interested in having a focused discussion on a particular theme within AI or more specific research domains related to ECAI? We invite you to submit your proposals for BoF sessions where you can engage with fellow researchers, share insights, and explore collaborative opportunities.

These sessions aim to create a space for networking, idea exchange, and building new collaborations. Whether you are an early-career researcher or a seasoned expert, these gatherings provide a platform to connect. We encourage collaborative thinking, and encourage you to identify during these sessions potential research partners, discuss ongoing projects, and ignite new collaborations.

We expect each session to be led by one or two experienced researchers who will guide the conversation.

Each session can be conducted during the pre-conference programme or at the end of the days of the main conference. Each session should take at least 2 hours. The available time slots are from 19th till 23th (from 14h till 19h)

What We Hope to Accomplish:

BoF sessions provide a platform for researchers at various stages to engage with others in their areas of interest. One could discuss ongoing projects, learn about relevant work at other institutions, broaden your understanding of the field, and maybe even meet new collaborators.

We also aim to facilitate lively discussions and encourage the exchange of research ideas. Whether you are a newcomer or an expert, these sessions offer a unique opportunity to connect and collaborate with these new connections.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to connect, learn, and collaborate. Your next collaborator might be sitting right across from you!
