This year, AAAI is continuing its invited speaker program, highlighting AI researchers who have just begun careers as new faculty members or the equivalent in industry.

New Faculty Highlight talks will be allotted 30 minutes each; the aim is for these talks to broadly survey the candidate’s research to date. Several talks will be released online and publicized each day of the AAAI conference, following which they will be available archivally as part of the conference program. Invited speakers will be further invited to contribute an article to a corresponding series in AI Magazine.

The eligibility dates for AAAI-23 are between July 1, 2020, and December 31, 2022.

To qualify applicants must have taken up a faculty position at a research-intensive university or a broadly equivalent position in industry (e.g., a position in a research lab that involves independent research and publication at AI venues), with a start date between July 1, 2020, and December 31, 2022.

We invite applications from qualified researchers. Applications should consist of a cover letter that explains the promise and impact of the candidate’s research to-date (e.g., publications in top-tier forums, citations, awards, or deployed systems) and future plans; the candidate’s CV; a link to the candidate’s Google Scholar profile or equivalent, and a one-page statement describing the work that would be surveyed by a talk.

Applications may be submitted at   and are due on or before October 3, 2022. The final selections are competitive, and will be done based on the strength of the candidate’s track record, and the promise of the research plan. Selected applicants will be required to provide a talk video for the committee to approve.
